Movie Review: Deadpool *****

movie deadpool

Deadpool is a Marvel Comics superhero revenge movie. Wade Wilson is a smart aleck ex-military small time vigilante who gets small time fees for small time contracts. He gets sick and is targeted for a cure. He gets disfigured in the process, names himself “Deadpool”, and seeks revenge utilizing his new-found abilities.

Deadpool is a trash talking profane sex-addicted remorseless tough guy. He’s very funny, too. This movie earns its R rating early and holds the R rating through the entire movie for language, nudity, and violence. Deadpool is an adult super hero–leave the kids and the church ladies at home. It was actually an appropriate movie for Valentine’s Day. Don’t arrive late and don’t leave early, or you’ll miss some good stuff. The opening is outstanding. The story is excellent. The characters are excellent. The action is excellent. The end is Marvel-ous. I laughed a lot. Ryan Reynolds was perfectly cast as Deadpool. His performance was worthy of Academy Award nomination for best actor. I loved it. I would give it 6 stars if I could, but my scale only goes to 5, so 5 out of 5 stars.
