Deadpool (2016)

US 108m, Colour
Director: Tim Miller; Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T. J. Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapičić

deadpool_2016Deadpool is an anti-superhero action comedy that is part of the Marvel comic book X-men series in which its title character is a wise-cracking foul-mouthed mercenary mutant with powers that let his body heal incredibly fast, as well as regrow lost limbs. As an origin story, Deadpool is not particularly interesting or original, though its nonlinear presentation helps keep things interesting. Reynolds continuous wise cracking character saves this movie from what otherwise would be a pretty mundane comic book flick (Klaus Ming March 2016).

    It gives that swift kick in the rear-end to the superhero genre that it so desperately needed. Nice review Klaus.

      Indeed it does, though i wonder if the Deadpool can be as entertaining a second time around? While i really enjoyed it, I think the next one is going to have to have a better story.
