Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Lusting Ryan, this movie worked for me. There were some lines in the movie that actually made me laugh out loud and there were some fight scenes that were pretty frikkin’ cool.
The was better than average as it provided full background on the superhero. I especially like that Deadpool was of the X-men lineage, yet I think the bridge from human to x-man would have been better told.
