Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds stars as the title character alongside T.J. Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat, and Ed Skrein as Ajax.
Earlier this week, we got the scoop that Deadpool didnt exactly reveal all of the films secrets while playing for press in screenings this past week.
Don't get us wrong, the film has its disarming charms.
With that out of the way, Deadpool is a insane ride with a very amusing and charismatic Ryan Reynolds leading the way.
So far, preview audiences have reacted positively to Reynolds' Deadpool in the origins story which has the anti-superhero hunting down the scientist who almost destroys his life with a near deadly experiment to cure his cancer. Marvel films are usually created to fit into the PG-13 window, so for all involved to push the comfort zone a little and see this type of reaction bodes well for the future. From gratuitous sex, violence, swearing and drug references, not to mention the character's trademark breaking of the fourth wall, it's all here - and you know what, it's a breath of fresh air.
For better or worse, "Deadpool" is true to its comic book roots by being the most nihilistic, irreverent and epistemologically self-conscious movie to land on the big screen in years.
Deadpool returns in his bathrobe to tell us a new character, Cable, will be in the sequel. With well-choreographed fight scenes, witty humor and even an enjoyable love story mixed in, there wasn't anything this film lacked. She posted a photo on her Instagram last week of Reynolds sitting on a "Deadpool" "throne" while he jokingly cups her breast. This may not be the typical Valentine's Day rom-com to see this weekend, but put all that aside because the movie is worth watching at least twice.
"Deadpool" seems stuck in the late 1990s, when kitsch was cool, sincerity was square and rock bands bragged about what losers they were. Sure, some ladies will enjoy it, but I think this film will find that it's mass appeal will come from testosterone-packing males.
Ryan Reynolds talked about the awkward moment when he fell in love with wife Blake Lively. This is not one of those movies where the hero is silent for 15 minutes.
