Awesome movie, although it’s slightly inappropriate (actually it’s really inappropriate but at least it’s funny). Overall really funny and was definitely different than other super hero movies like super man where the hero’s like 100% perfect. Ryan Reynold’s is an amazing actor. Very interesting. I disliked the amount of ... yah you know but other than that great movie!

Considering only the casting, Ryan Reynolds is the embodiment of Deadpool and could not be improved upon in this day and age. His casting and screentime alone make the movie more than worth a watch.

That said, the movie itself is kind of tried-and-tested, and though very irreverent and silly, is not particularly original in any of its beats, outside the R-rating and Deadpool's charming presence.

Reynolds carries the movie like Atlas carries the world. Remove him, and this enjoyable flik feels tired and mediocre.

Found the movie entertaining but I liked Deadpool 2 better. If you enjoy X-men you will enjoy this movie. A little bit of nudity when Ryan Reynolds went into the strip bar looking for his wife. Some good looking strippers.

Absolutely clever and hilarious. I'd give it a five except, yes, all the violence is hard to live with after watching. And, come on, does everything have to be sexualized?

In many ways, similar in spirit to the original “Robocop”.

if ferris bueler and die hard had a lovechild, this franchise would certinately be that
it has enough pranks to make the viewer laugh
yet at the same time, reynolds's smart alecky remarks makes a normal viewer of john mcclanes antics in die hard want to give reynolds the award for "worst superhero" when trying to actually do their job right

Interesting story-line & script. Liked the characters. Funny

Deadpool is specifically geared to an infantile mentality where its "hero" (ha!) is a sniveling suck who can't even tell jokes properly, missing the punchlines and constantly talking down to the audience like he was the most superior one of all.

This movie is pure garbage. It is a perfect example of how low the superhero movie genre has fallen in this jaded day and age we now live in, as it scrapes the bottom of the barrel for laughs.

This is the ideal movie for those who like to smell other people's flatulence.

Deadpool: [to the audience] I know right? You're probably thinking, "Whose b*lls did I have to fondle to get my very own movie"? I can't tell you his name, but it rhymes with "Polverine."

[In an Australian accent]

Deadpool: And let me tell you, he's got a nice pair of smooth criminals down under.

Yeah, it's me, Deadpool, and I got an offer that you can't refuse. I'm gonna wait out here, okay? It's a big house. It's funny that I only ever see two of you. It's almost like the studio couldn't afford another X-Man.

I had another Liam Neeson nightmare. I kidnapped his daughter and he just wasn't having it. They made three of those movies. At some point you have to wonder if he's just a bad parent.

A quirky mercenary with a conscience falls into a relationship with an eccentric hooker, only to discover that his body is riddled with cancer. Desperate to cure his condition, he enters a secret program that will cure him, give him a Wolverine-like healing factor, and possibly powers as well. However, it turns out that the program is run by evil people, the cure comes with unpleasant side effects, and the experience leaves him hilariously insane and out for revenge against his tormenter. You'll believe a man can break the fourth wall!
