Fifth about The Seventh

Deadpool

DeadpoolDeadpool: the small scale (for the most part) of Tim Miller’s film is refreshing (the world doesn’t have to be in peril for the stakes to be high); its central character is a collection of shades of grey (even if minimally so), but within this (supposedly) unusual hero is a very conventional origin story. Also, the constant banter is tiresome and, for the most part, not particularly funny; and, much like the graphical violence, it’s there just because it can. Ryan Reynolds is OK in what is, for all practical purposes, an animated character (or close enough), while Morena Baccarin is good, charming eye-candy.
