Deadpool, 2016 - ★★★

"I also buried 1,600 kilos of cocaine somewhere in the apartment... right next to the cure for blindness" - Deadpool/Wade (Ryan Reynolds)

More a one man standup routine than satisfying story. Thankfully Reynolds and his pop-culture reference/fourth wall breaking material is hilarious. The trouble is its him, him, him and everything else feels totally secondary. Its like Chris Martin and Coldplay, you mean theres 3 other guys in the band? Theres absolutely zero depth to the story or supporting characters, in places it actually felt pretty b-movie grade.

While I laughed and enjoyed it for what it was. Because in its credit its a very good popcorn picture, perfectly suited for a one off viewing experience. But I hope the inevitable sequel brings far more substance, more along the lines of Iron Man and Captain America.
