DEADPOOL movie getting insanely good reviews

After Fox Studios’ last superhero film, Fantastic 4, absolutely got obliterated by critics it would be easy to become apprehensive about their other comic book flicks. However, with DEADPOOL coming out this Friday, and early reviews starting to trickle in, it appears a second critical flop is not in the cards. 

According to movie review website Rotten Tomatoes, the early reviews indicate nothing but high honors for Ryan Reynolds’ passion project. Here are some excerpts from the reviews:

Hitfix: “I’ll just marvel at the fact that Fox finally grew the jooblies to let this film happen.”




We Got This Covered: “With Fox’s Deadpool movie, a new superhero icon has been born, and he just tea-bagged us all.”

Chris Stuckmann: “Justice has finally been done to the “Merc with a Mouth.” Is it the next Citizen Kane? No. Is it the perfect Deadpool movie? You bet.”

Slant Magazine: “The whiplash contrasts between snideness and sincerity are deeply rooted in the main character’s psychology.”




CinemaBlend: “Deadpool is a blissfully unique and hilarious action-packed blockbuster that stands as one of the best big-screen superhero origin stories that we’ve had the pleasure of seeing.”

Examiner: “While there have been other R-rated comic book movies and even superhero sex scenes (hello Watchmen!), none revel in it quite like Deadpool does.”

TheWrap: “It’s a film that’s amused with itself, but thanks to a screwball screenplay by Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick and a charmingly snarky lead turn by Ryan Reynolds, that amusement is both thoroughly earned and completely contagious.”

DEADPOOL hits theaters this Friday.
