Deadpool is the best Marvel film to date

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. After falling in love with a stripper, he begins to find his place in life, just before realizing he has cancer. Promised a better life, he goes through a super-serum transformation that ultimately destroys his entire physical appearance. From there, we find him hunting down the man who did this to him, who also happens to have kidnapped his girl. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

This film has action sequences immediately followed by a dark backstory, which worked well for this story. This screenplay could have easily become too serious and muddled in the pity of self-referential jokes, but this accomplishes the exact opposite of that. Deadpool is definitely one of the best Marvel films to date

Deadpool is an enjoyable film. It is funny, self-aware, thrilling, and endearing. Ryan Reynolds shines in the title role. The movie was hilarious, but probably not a good choice for younger kids because of profanity, but it’s a great choice for a fun night out with friends.
