About fucking time.
Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is a mercenary who is diagnosed with terminal cancer. A man named Francis (Ed Skrien) offers to cure him and turn him into a super hero, only it leaves him horribly disfigured and afraid to go back to his girlfriend, Vanessa. ( Morena Baccarin) Taking on the name "Deadpool," Wilson vows to go after Francis and win back his love. All while a couple of X-Men try to get him to go the hero route instead of the vigilante one.
Deadpool really wants you to know it's not like any other hero movie. It's entire marketing campaign has been based around it. The opening credits tell us the film is staring "A hot chick, a British Villian, a CGI guy and a moody teen." That it features a "gratuitous cameo," is produced by "asshats" and directed by an "overpaid tool." It hammers in its point.
The hard R rating on this film really works in it's favor, he was never meant for the PG-13 treatment. It's a lot of fun, Reynolds has a ton of charisma and I love that Deadpool fans finally got the film they wanted after his disastrous outing in X-Men Origins. My only gripe is they were way too heavy handed with breaking the fourth wall. It got repetitive fast. We know this is different, you don't need to keep telling us.
