Everyone knows the classic superhero story. Guy has superpowers, guy fights villain and wins, guy gets girl. Marvel’s “Deadpool” has a rather creative outlook on this age-old trope.

In this movie, the protagonist is more of a chaotic neutral character than a good guy. Slinging cuss words, packing guns and wielding katanas, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) is no hero. He’s just a man (with a habit of breaking the fourth wall) on a mission for revenge and getting back the love of his life. Over the course of the movie, we get lead around New York City, meeting unique characters including antagonists Ajax (Ed Skrein) and Angel Dust (Gina Carano) as well as X-men Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and Colossus (Stefan Kapicic).

Not only did this movie blow me away with countless moments of comedy and humorous satire, it also has a passionate side story of romance, more than one strong female role, and more than enough action for everyone. However, anyone interested in seeing this flick needs to be able to stomach its content. Trust me, it’s rated R for a reason. With copious amounts of slurring and cursing, as well as plenty of graphic violence and explicit nudity, this is not a film for the lighthearted.

Besides its gruesome nature, “Deadpool” is a must-see for any Marvel fan.
