What are people saying?

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Deadpool

    In straddling the line between fourth-wall busting superhero parody and a lesser-budgeted cousin of the popular "X-Men" franchise, "Deadpool" never fully commits to either idea and ends up, instead, something like the spandex equivalent of the recent "21 Jump Street" movies. When the humor lands, it really lands, and that opening action sequence is frenetic fun, but the final result is only mildly diverting.

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Deadpool

    Do the filmmakers know that sarcastically acknowledging that the film is an offensively one-dimensional, run-of-the-mill, cheap-looking load of fluff doesn't actually put them above it? Sarcasm or irony or self-awareness does not a good film make. Besides the cringe-worthy motor-mouthing going on the entire time, the action scenes were a little satisfying - albeit marred by cheap-looking CGI and a lame script.

  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film Deadpool

    One star for Reynold's body time (even the burned version: I'll take it) and another star for breaking the fourth wall while breaking the fourth wall: this is a geeky romantic comedy filled with action scenes, x-men and overrated references. But (surprise) it's only the sassy blockbuster of the week: and to be honest, not that funny and not that sassy.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Deadpool

    Anyone who thinks this legitimately subverts the Marvel formula is kidding themselves. But it is one of the better cases of that formula in action: tight, coherent, congenial, stylish, and fast enough that when one joke flops, you don't have to wait long for another that works. Really, a lot of fun—but minus a star for ending on a whimper, and for robbing geek goddess Morena Baccarin of her agency.

  • Zach Closs's rating of the film Deadpool

    The ability to wink and giggle at your catalog of cliches and contrivances doesn't make them excusable. That said, the screenplay is packed with punchy dialogue; it's often funny, even clever. Reynolds is great, Baccarin is too, and their courtship gives the movie a solid core. Ultimately the pleasant distractions it provides from the somewhat banausic formula are just that -- distractions -- but they're enough.

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Deadpool

    Irreverent but totally inconsequential, Tim Miller's Deadpool lives off a collection of well-crafted vignettes that never add up to a well-rounded narrative. It's fun to sit through and Deadpool is certainly a very entertaining character, but it hardly makes for the cinematic experience it aims to be.

  • Addy K.'s rating of the film Deadpool

    It is easy to dismiss DEADPOOL. But it's not easy to dislike it. Ryan Reynolds is pitch-perfect as the wisecracking anti-hero (all my apprehensions about his "acting" fade away when he disappears under the mask). Yeah, not all the jokes land; but the pop culture references can be pretty funny—especially if you were born between 1980 and 1990. Witty dialogues supersede derivative plot. Stay back for the end credits.

  • José Neves's rating of the film Deadpool

    An overexposed charge with barnyard humour and a direction in autopilot, generated by a production company which dispenses a final signature (that however appears!). The celebrated "fourth wall" is a decoy to "épater les bourgeois", that finally leads to an absolute disaster, anything fun. Let's go for Frank Tashlin if it's self-representation that is intended and to the magazines if is the character what matters.
