MOVIE REVIEW: “Deadpool” Gets Nasty (I mean really REALLY Nasty)

We all know that February is a dumping ground for movies. I try to temper my expectations for any film coming out right now because odds are…it’s gonna suck. There are those rare occasions though, when studios slip in a surprise and catch us all off guard. That would be the case for Deadpool. In fact, I can already hear the jokes Deadpool himself would make about that “slip in a surprise” comment.

Deadpool is technically a superhero, but one with a mean streak and a potty mouth. He was Wade Wilson, a special-forces operative until he was dishonorably discharged and later diagnosed with terminal cancer. Wilson tries an experimental treatment that kills the cancer AND gives him extraordinary powers, but it disfigures him in the process.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Deadpool” On Me!

Can I tell you how ticked-off my 11-year-old is about NOT GETTING TO SEE Deadpool? She simply can’t believe that anyone would release an R-rated Marvel Movie, and though I sympathize with her…I love it.

According to the press release Ryan Reynolds plays “former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.” I don’t relish the idea of what happens to Ryan Reynolds’ pretty face, but this looks like loads of fun and GUESS WHO HAS FREE PASSES! The screening is February 12th and YES, there will be a line to get in so show up early. Click HERE for your passes, then take a minute to watch the trailer. Do it AWAY from the kids though because it, like the movie, IS RATED-R…which means they can’t see it. (evil laugh)
