“reveal itself as a really raunchy, very dirty and pretty funny goof on the entire superhero ethos”~Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
Aroview: Super-smug but irresistible super-(anti)hero riff based on the Marvel comic about a wise-cracking former Special Forces operative turned mercenary who is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him deformed but with accelerated healing powers, adopting the alter ego "Deadpool".
Wildly self-aware and choc full of references - particularly to the world of X-MEN - this is hog-heaven for comicbook geeks and a pretty decent hi-octane, badass entertainment for the rest of us.
4 stars (Very Good) Refreshing change from the usual po-faced superhero shenanigans. Probably not as slick structurally as it is stylistically, but you'll be having too much fun to notice. Or care.~HiFi
