Biography by

Deadpool Review


Both the filmmakers and the characters on-screen are so pleased with themselves that this might just be the smuggest movie ever made. Thankfully, it's also very funny. It's a passion project for actor-producer Ryan Reynolds, who throws himself fully into his role as a snarky mercenary who becomes an indestructible superhero with nothing to lose. And in addition to a constant stream of irreverent humour, he underscores the film's snarkiness with some real emotion.

Reynolds plays Wade, a thug for hire who works out of a bar run by his comical pal Weasel (T.J. Miller), and when he meets fellow mercenary Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), it's love at first sight. The feisty pair match each other with sharp tongues and brutal physicality, but their romance is shaken when Wade is secretly diagnosed with end-stage cancer. His only hope lies in a shady treatment from the ropey Ajax (Ed Skrein) and his sidekick Angel Dust (Gina Carano), which turns out to literally be torture. Sure, it cures his cancer and sparks his innate mutant healing power, but it leaves him hideously scarred. As he sets out to get revenge, two young X-Men (Brianna Hildebrand's Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Stefan Kapcic's Colossus) try to recruit him to their cause. And Wade, now known as Deadpool, tries to work up the nerve to show Vanessa what's left of him.

All of this is revealed early on, as Wade's back-story is recounted in a series of flashbacks in the middle of a massive opening action sequence. And once we're caught up, the story heads into a succession of massive climactic action sequences. Fortunately, there are some quieter moments in between that are both hilarious and involving. Reynolds effortlessly bridges the film's wild mood swings. His sassy attitude and feisty physicality feed cleverly into his riveting chemistry with Baccarin, whose character starts off strongly before dissolving into the standard hackneyed girlfriend role.

Formerly a soldier in the Special Forces, Wade Wilson finds himself dealt a bad hand when he is diagnosed with cancer in all his major organs. Soon, however, he is approached by a scientist who promises not only to cure him and save his life, but also give him powers beyond humanity. He agrees to undergo their experiments, but it isn't long before he realises that things may have just gone from bad to worse for him. He ends up badly disfigured and extremely unstable, dubbing his new self Deadpool and finds comfort only in his whimsical musings and inappropriate humour. When this fails to satisfy him in the long term, he decides to use his newfound powers to get back at the man who subjected him to those horrific experiments, while enjoying a few killing sprees along the way. Unfortunately, he's not the only deadly supernatural being on this planet, and he's about to discover some real enemies along the way.

Extraction Trailer

Leonard Turner has dedicated his life to the CIA. He might be partially retired but he's still a valuable asset to the organisation. When he's taken hostage by a terrorist group, Turner is made to release a statement documenting the groups ransom demands. If their demands are not met, all the missile siloes around the world will be pointed at The United States.

Enter Leonard's son Harry. Harry too is a CIA operative but he's a desk worker who's yet to be cleared for field duty. When he learns of his father's kidnapping, Harry takes matters into his own hands. Now working behind the backs of colleges - not to mention a group of highly skilled international terrorists - Harry takes on the mission alone. Using his analytical knowhow, Harry believes he's one step ahead than his former work mates.

Hot on Harry's trail is Agent Victoria Phair, his ex-girlfriend who's an accomplished field agent with martial arts skills and far more tactical training than Harry. All that's left to do is save Leonard and the world from a disaster unlike anything the world has ever seen.

Heist Trailer

The Pope is the formidable nickname given to Frank Silva; a businessman who runs a multi-million dollar empire of gambling with his glamorous dockside casino. Luke Vaughn works as a card dealer at Pope's casino, and in a desperate bid to raise 300,000 dollars to pay for his sick daughter's medical treatment, he turns to his boss for help. Predictably, Pope is less than pleased about being asked for money and throws Vaughn out, but little does he know that there's another worker who'll stop at nothing to get a share of the riches. Cox convinces Vaughn to rob the place and they make off with 3 million dollars after a messy shoot-out. However, their plans go slightly wrong at the getaway stage, forcing them to take over a passing bus and holding the passengers hostage. Now, as well as The Pope's savage cohorts on their tail including the bloodthirsty Dog, they have a SWAT team led by no-nonsense female Officer Bajos after them and escape seems futile.

Deadpool - Teaser Trailer

After undergoing horrific abuse as an experimental subject while working as a soldier in the Special Forces, he has been left deformed and dangerously unstable, with incredible supernatural abilities that allow him to heal at an accelerated rate. Now a mercenary with a feverish taste for blood, Wilson becomes the anti-hero Deadpool and takes his fascination with pain to the lengths of revenge, determined to get back at the person who mutilated him and ruined his life. Whimsical musings aside, Deadpool is lethal and will stop at nothing to punish his tormentors.

Chakrams At The Ready! Who Should Play Xena In The Rumoured TV Re-Boot?

Lucy Lawless Gina Carano Charlize Theron Zooey Deschanel Ronda Rousey Ruby Rose Gemma Arterton Zoe Saldana Laverne Cox

So, rumours are circulating that a modern reboot of the 90s cult show 'Xena: Warrior Princess' is set to hit screens in the near future. It would be great to see Lucy Lawless back in that badass leather corset but, chances are, if it does ever return, it's likely to have a new wearer. But who should it be?

Lucy Lawless

In a world where feminism has become re-invigorated and strong female role models are being taken seriously in movies and on the small screen, it seems only right that 'Xena: Warrior Princess' be brought back as part of this phenomenon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are involved in her resurrection (literally) with the series suggested to arrive in 2016 and take on a kind of Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' angle. Original star Lucy Lawless is keen to crush our dreams, though, telling Twitter, 'Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I'd love it to happen one day but it's still in the wishful thinking stage', but it still got us thinking about who we'd like to see in the role if it ever did come back.
