Everything I hate about superhero movies is present: Simple plot, fighting inconsistencies, villain who doesn't deliver on his threats etc. So movies like this need something extra to pick up the slack, and Deadpool has a lot extra. The humor, the action, the extreme meta and complete aura of self awareness surrounding not only the characters, but the actors, writers and director, is something completely new. I assumed all of Deadpool's unique characteristics, such as the 4th wall breaking, would be used as a crutch for the film, but it actually turned out to be a fully functioning leg for the film to stand on. A great, funny, and refreshingly different superhero movie.
