Loved: Ryan Reynolds
Saving the best till last, Ryan Reynolds is, without a doubt, the number one reason why anybody should see this film.
For years he’s been trying to get this movie off the ground, while trying to live with his shameful rendition of the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Finally, he’s atoned for that abomination and delivers a truly mesmerising performance as the Merc with the Mouth. In every shot, his passion and devotion to the character shines through, making this a true labour of love. He nails the humour (for the most part) and captures the snarky wit and spirit that makes the character so unique.
There’s only been a handful of actors in comic book movies who seemed as if they were born to play the role. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is one. Robert Downey Jr. is another. Now you can add Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool to the list.
