Review: Deadpool – Juvenile superhero for adults only

February 10, 2016 – 7:30 am

DeadpoolDeadpool fans rejoice, after 25 years your film is finally here and it’s every bit as insolent and insane as you wanted. If, like me, you’re not a Deadpool comic book fan, I still predict you’re going to enjoy the heck out of this movie, even if it’s a reluctant guilty pleasure. This flick is undeniably funny and has some awesome cool action sequences that are sure to win you over.

For the uninitiated, Deadpool was originally created in 1991 by comic book writer Fabian Nicieza and artist Rob Liefeld. The character has changed quite a bit over the years, with the input of multiple authors and artisans, morphing from a straight-up villain into the irredeemable “merc with a mouth” antihero that his fervent fans love today.

The character is an amalgamation of Marvel’s Spider-Man, Wolverine and Punisher, and DC Comics’ Deathstroke mercenary; and this is his second rendition on the big screen (the first being in the universally panned X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009.) In the new film his origin is completely redone, and imaginative fans will tell you this is due to the warped timelines created in the X-Men: Days of Future Past movie (a theory that works for me.) In fact, this new film is considered to be a part of the X-Men film franchise.
