Deadpool

An interesting start to a possible new franchise.  Ryan Reynolds works to bring a sense of comic book humor to Deadpool that resembles a cross between Jim Carry and RDJr. It’s what many of the other films trying to be “like iron man” fail at. The film is full of action reminiscent of Xmen and others in the Marvel universe yet somehow feels like a stepchild that wants to be in with the grown ups – even poking fun at its challenges – i.e. not enough funding for other big name characters to participate.  I really enjoyed the way it was filmed and humor but recognize it’s probably more of a guys movie than a girls movie despite the romance and bear chested Reynolds.  Could be a date night movie if your partner is a comic book fiend like me who enjoys the humor mixed with comic book style violence.
