Film review: Deadpool with Ryan Reynolds

Total hit or just a bit shit?

So what's it all about then?

Deadpool is basically the story of Wade Wilson, an ex-special forces operative who, after undergoing a rogue experiment, is left with superhero healing powers, and so he adopts the alter ego Deadpool.

Unlike your other big superhero movies, it's more of a comedy than hard-hitting action film. Although there IS a love story involved and also a hell of a lot of violence. So y'know - somethin' for everyone really.

Incase you aren't big on the whole Marvel Superhero Comic thaaang - Deadpool's character has actually appeared already in previous X Men franchises, so there's also a lot of chatter and gags around that, that the Comic Geek's will love - but it'll fly right over your head.

Anyone good in it?

Uh YUH. Ryan Reynolds plays Deadpool - and it's all down to his hilariously foul-mouthed humour that you love the character in general. Morena Baccarin plays Deadpool's ex girlfriend Vanessa (she's that lady from Homeland, just incase you spend half the film mentally trying to work it out like us) and fit Ed Skrein off of Game Of Thrones fame plays Deadpool's nemesis Ajax. Hey hottie. 

What were the highlights please?

The sheer amount of gags at every possible opportunity leave you lol-ing your head off throughout the movie. The soundtrack is also killer and fully makes you feel like a superhero. Oh, and the fact that Deadpool's character is forever slagging off Ryan Reynolds IRL is pretty hilarious too. 

Tell me about the topless moments please, Sugarscape:

YUP. Ry Ren gets topless a lot in it and he is RIPPED. There's also a lorra sex scenes with Morena Baccarin - so there's a load of boobage too. 

Will I laugh so hard I choke on my popcorn or will I be covering my face in fear?

A bit of both tbh. Yes you'll defo be laughing - but there's a hell of lot of violence, blood splattering and gore too. So if you're a wimp like us, you'll definitely be covering your face at times. 

Overall verdict (out of five)
