Critics Consensus

Fast, funny, and gleefully profane, the fourth-wall-busting Deadpool subverts superhero film formula with wildly entertaining -- and decidedly non-family-friendly -- results.

  • Watching the film is like sitting at dinner with a teen-ager who believes that, if he swears long and loudly enough, he will shock the grownups into accepting him as one of their own.

  • Flamboyantly vulgar and determinedly self-referential, Deadpool has the shape of a superhero movie but the soul of a Danny McBride flick.

    Feb 15, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Deadpool is obnoxious and puerile and infantile and has an irritating meta tone so snide that it's constantly in danger of nullifying the entire movie -- and I still got a pretty big kick out of it.

    Feb 12, 2016 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • It's fun for a while, and then it all becomes deeply disheartening, because calling attention to the more businesslike mechanics of superheroics isn't subversive when you're also playing right into them.

    Feb 12, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It seems less irreverent than self-congratulatory.

    Feb 12, 2016 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Deadpool hooks you into Wade's trauma, but mostly it's content to skate along on the cheekiness of his death-sport attitude. The film's airy cynicism says: he's not the hero we dream of, he's just the one we deserve.

    One of the more unconventional and violent superhero movies also turns out to be one of the better ones. Ryan Reynold's brutally honest sense of humor and high-caliber energy keeps the film going without getting dull. Also unconventional is the villain, written with a surprising amount of thought. He saves Deadpool's life, yet also manages to ruin it by being incredibly sadistic. Fun and games aside, it is a rarity in which I find myself emotionally invested in action heroes, and Deadpool never reached those heights; it quickly escaped my thoughts and failed to be substantially memorable. Despite the quality of the dramatic elements, the style (celebrating everything in excess) is a very welcome and refreshing one and should be applied in superhero flicks more often.

    Shit! Can I say that.?..! Why the people don't make movies like this more often. The screenplay was like ...... what should we do next to empress the people after that awesome happy end in like eating pizza in the same time. ...... It rocks! The whole movie. I think I can't say anymore more detailed think about ut.
