Deadpool 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).
