Deadpool: Comedy, Action, Romance, and Gore

WARNING: This movie is not for the faint of heart. Now I’m all for horror movies, gore, and everything in between, but for some reason any time something is mutating it gives me the shivers. Maybe because I can imagine it happening to me and it makes my skin crawl. So if you’re like me, then be prepared to turn away a couple times during this movie.

Other than that, I loved Deadpool! It had a little bit of everything…dark humor, dysfunctional romance, unrealistic action, and disgusting brain matter.


Ryan Reynolds, who plays Wade Wilson, is a former special forces operative who works as a mercenary. His life is forever changed when he agrees to an experiment during which he is tortured and transformed into Deadpool. Wade now has extraordinary healing powers that help him track down and kill the man who destroyed his life. Add in a little bit of twisted romance and comedy and you have a (non)classic superhero story.


And, I gotta say, the hype about Ryan Reynold’s ass in that red suit was not exaggerated. Seriously, hot damn.
