Deadpool (15)

Deadpool (15)

Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

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.

The critical consensus

Loud, lewd, inventive and outrageous, Deadpool is a delight. All credit to Reynolds and co. for having the steel balls to go this far.

The sheer number of dick jokes will soon numb you to their impact, but this is a fun, if patchy, alternative to the glut of ‘the world is about to end unless we do something’ comic-book films.

Reynolds deploys likable Clooneyesque goof in this shriekingly self-aware and very violent super-antihero Marvel vehicle.

I'm happy to report that Deadpool stand proud and tall - with one regrowing small hand that adds an added kink to his frequent touching himself interludes and a bullet crawling right up his...

That Deadpool grows in likeability and swagger is due in no small part to Reynolds who was, quite simply, born for this shit, with his delivery both exuberant and expertly withering.

There is far more bite in its humour than in last year's Ant-Man. Reynolds plays the lead role in an enjoyably freewheeling fashion. It's just a pity that the film itself never quite has the courage of its own cynicism.

Ryan Reynold’s smart-talking antihero makes a profanely amusing addition to the X-Men universe.
