Deadpool ***1/2


IMDB Synopsis: A former Special Forces operative turned mercenary is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopting the alter ego Deadpool.

“Deadpool” has been in development since that wretched version that was brought to life in “Wolverine: X-Men Origins”. Seems like Ryan Reynolds has been trying to do justice to this character for years and finally he has. This is an R rated, offensive, overly violent romp that is exciting and fun. It also opens the door for for more R rated comic books adaptations.

I will say that I was highly entertained. I did like that the story was very self contained but I hope to have a bigger budget in future “Deadpool” movies. Seems like most action films that don’t have enough cash always seem to take place in junk yards or factories. It would also be cool to see “Deadpool” kick some ass along side some more prominent X-men characters.

 Those are small gripes though. You must get out and see this movie. Even if you don’t like comics but are a fan of hard core action flicks with a sick sense of humour, this is still for you.
