Deadpool 
A Total Blast of Unconventional Super-Heroics!
4/4 stars

'Deadpool' is the unexpected knockout superhero hit of the year - and for good reason. This movie is just flat-out FUN from beginning to end! I can't remember a moment when I wasn't laughing. Every single joke was laugh-out-loud hilarious! That is very, very rare for someone like me to say. It is vulgar, and often juvenile, but it plays to those strengths in the best way possible. The character of Deadpool has been a comic book fan favorite for his blunt and direct nature towards comic readers. His ability to break the fourth wall comes as a natural progression to comedic spoofing of superhero tropes. He's a loon with skewed morals, a penchant for gory violence, and a secretly tortured soul. This film depicts the title character with absolute one hundred percent accuracy. We get a solid origin story full of all of the things that make Deadpool such an appealing figure, while also adding in a believable romance and tragic backstory with ease. Probably the most surprising thing about the film is it's ability to balance all of these aspects with a strong (simple) plot and the aforementioned gory violence and vulgar extremities, all while conveying an overall sense of sheer fun. The tone perfectly represents everything those of us familiar with the character would come to expect. The writers utilize the fourth wall breakage to maximum effect. Deadpool's direct lines to the audience hold together the flash-back oriented narrative with solid fluidity. Many jokes are made at the expense of the current state of superhero films, making direct references to past films, actors, directors, production studios, and even the makers of THIS film. Usually references are unfunny placements for actual gags, but here they service the non-existence of the fourth wall for great genre spoofing and self parody. These are only sporadic moments in what is already a solid base for a great unconventional superhero tale. The action scenes are creative, the characters are memorable, the writing is on point, and the jokes are rapid-fire hysterical. 'Deadpool' is an absolute blast of entertainment! I doubt I will have more fun watching any other new film for the rest of the year.
