Ryan Reynolds, who played a misbegotten faux-Deadpool in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and has nobly spent the subsequent six years trying to atone by doing it right, may finally have found his defining role
Anarchic, outrageous and filthily funny, this tongue-in-cheek X-Men movie tears up the superhero rulebook from within.
The most romantic Marvel film since Steve Rogers first wooed Peggy Carter.
In its foul-mouthed, aggressively violent way, "Deadpool" proves to be nasty fun, casting a snotty Ryan Reynolds as a vengeance-seeking jerk who may have mutant powers but never acquired the stoicism or valor of the X-Men.
It may not be original, but what the film lacks in freshness it makes up in cinematic bravura, from 'breaking the fourth wall' (talking to the audience) to self referential nonsense amidst violent mayhem
It's a film that's amused with itself, but thanks to a screwball screenplay by Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick and a charmingly snarky lead turn by Ryan Reynolds, that amusement is both thoroughly earned and completely contagious.
I'll just marvel at the fact that Fox finally grew the jooblies to let this film happen.
The whiplash contrasts between snideness and sincerity are deeply rooted in the main character's psychology.
With Fox's Deadpool movie, a new superhero icon has been born, and he just tea-bagged us all.
Deadpool is a blissfully unique and hilarious action-packed blockbuster that stands as one of the best big-screen superhero origin stories that we've had the pleasure of seeing.
While there have been other R-rated comic book movies and even superhero sex scenes (hello "Watchmen"!), none revel in it quite like "Deadpool" does.
