Release Date: 2016

Genre: Action & Adventure, Science Fiction & Fantasy, Comedy.

Rating: R (for strong violence and language throughout, sexual content and graphic nudity).

In my humble opinion, I give this film a thumbs up.

This is a fun movie by 20th Century Fox and based on the Marvel Comics anti-hero, Deadpool, another in the X-Men series. This is the debut feature film of special effects artist and American director Tim Miller, who was nominated for Academy Award for Gopher Broke, and also worked on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Thor: The Dark World.

What is the story?

It is the story of a mercenary, Wade Wilson, played by Ryan Reynolds, who was an operative in the special forces, meets the girl of his life, Vanessa Carlysle, proposes to her, then is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Not wanting her to see him like this, he eventually undergoes an experimental cure by Ajax, Ed Skrein, who turns out to be an evil scientist, who tortures him to induce a gene mutation.

Wade ends up gaining a super power of healing but is also terribly disfigured in the process.

Becoming Deadpool, he hunts down Ajax but is interrupted by X-Men Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead who try to recruit him and bring him to Professor Xavier at the X-Mansion. He evades them while Ajax gets away and later kidnaps Vanessa. With the help of Colossus and Megasonic, he battles Ajax and Angel Dust and minions, finally prevailing and saving the damsel. They kiss and Wade tells us that there will be a sequel!

Comic Book Genre

If you saw Ryan Reynolds in the Green Lantern, it was such a disappointment, but you’ll want to give him another chance at being funny in Deadpool. I am so pleased he had an opportunity to redeem himself in another comic book. Be warned, it is very vulgar, snarky, irreverent and bloody. Terrific costumes and make-up, and a great soundtrack. Lots of laughter. I really enjoyed this film.

I see a great opening for changes in the comic book genre.
