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.

Wade Wilson isn't your average superhero. Indeed, he has fewer morals and a brutal villainous streak that makes him particularly formidable to his many enemies. 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.

Susan Cooper works as an analyst for the CIA; rarely out where the action is and working entirely from the office, advising some of the organisation's top agents during their most deadly assignments. However, following a serious lapse in judgement at the hands of her partner during a bomb disposal mission, the agency are forced to enlist another member of the team to uncover the location of the nuclear weapon. Deciding now is the time to drop her boring persona and become the super keen spy she always wanted to be, Susan volunteers to go undercover - to much derision from her colleagues who barely know her name let alone her position in the CIA. She's allowed to prove herself on the task though, with no appropriate alternative, but can she show that Susan Cooper is just as deadly as her team?

Who's the daddy? Saul and Javadi go head to head seeking revenge over the past.
It's taken six episodes but finally Homeland is back on its feet and back to its old ways, sending blistering plot twists, confusing u-turns and stunning revelations our way. Last night's episode in the UK, 'Still Positive,' saw Saul at an all-time low, Javadi's true ways exposed and Carrie turn the tables on her abduction.
Carrie's Role As Double Agent Has Worked Well So Far.
The acting director of the CIA was still reeling after last episode's revelation that the gung-ho Senator Lockhart was in line for the permanent CIA role despite weeks of praise for keeping the organisation steady after the Langley bombing. He also resigned himself to accepting that his wife was still seeing the lover that she met in India. Another man may have stormed out or shouted; Saul had bigger fish to fry as Majid "The Magician" Javadi had captured undercover agent Carrie.

[Warning: Spoilers] The tension mounts after we've been let in on Carrie and Saul's ruse.
Until last week's final five minutes of CIA drama Homeland, fans of the show were beginning to wonder if the rest of season three would be as improbable and sedate as its beginning episodes. Just for you UK viewers, here's the recap of The Yoga Play.
Saul and Senator Lockhart in Homeland
We'd been teased by the absence of Brody for the first two episodes only to be hit smack bang in the face with an hour long, heavy handed, Nick-fest in Caracas where we saw the usually conniving Langley bombing suspect resign himself to heroin addiction rather than plot his escape

Bolstered by Emmy encouragement and THAT S2 final episode, 'Homeland' will be welcomed back on to UK TV screens.
Though Homeland's third season will make its debut on American TV screens this Sunday, the UK will have to wait for the hit political drama until the 6th October, as Channel 4 confirms its Sunday night premiere.
Expect A Much Darker Return To The CIA Drama.
The show, starring Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, has gained a sizeable following after its electric two seasons. The second season finale ended on an explosive note and as the end credits rolled we shook our screen with fury wondering how we could possibly wait another year to find out Brody's fate as well as how Carrie and Saul are coping picking up the pieces of a devastated CIA.
