The jokes come fast and hard, and if that sentence had just been said in a this particular movie you can be sure good ol' Wade Wilson would have already made a dirty joke out of it. Ryan Reynolds brings his unique charm that walks the fine line of being too much and just enough with attitude, kind of like Deadpool himself in the comics actually. Oh, and if you're wondering if it has those little bits of humanity that make Wade someone the audience can relate to and care about, the flick does work a little of that into this too.

The movie isn't without flaw (the main villain is pretty bland), but the never-ending stream of usually-great jokes (some land with a thud, but most are solid) and superb action scenes gives us a film that is a bunch of fun, but also throws in a some of heart now and then too. I would recommend seeing, "Deadpool," if you love super-hero movies, or if you hate super-hero movies and want to see something that insults them...while actually being a really good version of what it is making fun of. Just please, don't bring your little kids to this. Seriously, if I see any news stories about, "Outraged parents," complaining they took their 6 year-old to a movie clearly advertised as a bloody and raunchy good time I will put my head in my hands and let out a loud cry for humanity.
4.5 out of 5 stars.
