It’s suitably violent, funny and foul mouthed which is refreshing after all the Avengers bullshit that’s been flying around for the last few years. As we know origin stories are stale these days so Deadpool uses flashbacks to show us how Wade becomes Deadpool while at the same time going after the bad guy in the present. This is a refreshing change as we’re not waiting for him to become Deadpool before the action starts.
My problem with it is it’s just not that memorable. The origin story has been done to the death and the bad guy is totally unforgettable. It’s the comedy and violence that makes it watchable.
