Deadpool (2016) - Rotten Tomatoes


Deadpool (2016)



Critic Consensus: Fast, funny, and gleefully profane, the fourth-wall-busting Deadpool subverts superhero film formula with wildly entertaining -- and decidedly non-family-friendly -- results.

Deadpool tries so hard and is so trying.

December 27, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Who needs a hero when you can have an entertaining antihero?

November 8, 2016 | Full Review…

This is a fun, hyper-violent, gleefully perverse frolic into the super-powered absurd.

August 15, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

As far as origin stories go, this one's a blast, in no small measure due to Reynolds, who clearly relishes the part, and director Tim Miller, who keeps you entertained and amused throughout.

June 21, 2016 | Full Review…

Watching the film is like sitting at dinner with a teen-ager who believes that, if he swears long and loudly enough, he will shock the grownups into accepting him as one of their own.

February 15, 2016 | Full Review…

Flamboyantly vulgar and determinedly self-referential, Deadpool has the shape of a superhero movie but the soul of a Danny McBride flick.

Audience Reviews for Deadpool


Deadpool is the most asinine superhero ever. His character is insufferable, and the story structure is clunky. Sound, costumes and acting are better than usual, but I don't understand why anyone would claim to have enjoyed watching this bipolar fantasy.

Some jokes were good, but most of them were juvenile sex jokes on the order of "That's what she said", and most unforgivably--two of them were well-known old chestnuts, the one about the brown pants and the Thanksgiving and Christmas legs. Solid, fairly creative action scenes but at times too gory for me, especially with Wade Wilson's vulnerable skin disfigurement. The boyfriend coaxed me to watch this on the plane, and I'm just glad I didn't pay to see this.

Okay for what it was. I don't really like this type of movie.
