Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Ahh Deadpool you had me at the opening credits. As the list of characters we were about to encounter rolled across the screen…”British villain….moody teen…CGI character…the writers (the real superheroes!)” I knew this was going to be fun. This is the first comedy film, since starting my movie journey in December, that I’ve laughed at all the way through. I loved the comic styling of the anti hero and the frequent breaks in the fourth wall. Of course this wouldn’t be a Marvel Comic film without tons of action and in this it is particularly gory albeit balletically choreagraphed. Sexy, irreverent, sweary and hilariously funny, what’s not to love.
