It was Cs who decided we would see 'Deadpool' and not having read or seen any material about the film I walked into the cinema without a clue as to the type of movie or what it might be about.
It was only seconds into the crazy opening credits that I realised 'Deadpool' is a spoof and the genre is action, superheroes.
Mixed amongst the plentiful violence and occasionally gruesome moments is quite a lot of wise cracking humour. A surprising amount of gay themed humour for a film whose main character otherwise appears to be heterosexual.
In brief, 'Deadpool' is about the creation of a new superhero. The film is laced with 1980s and other period hit songs.
A little uneven but often humorous.
