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.

He's becoming ever more versatile with his latest filmography.
As a new father, Ryan Reynolds has been re-evaluating his career even as he continues to make movies at a rather brisk pace. He has three films out this year and two more in the can. His latest release is Tarsem Singh's Self/Less, a thriller with a sci-fi twist that involves Ben Kingsley's character implanting his consciousness into Reynolds' younger, fitter body.
Ryan Reynolds' latest movie venture is this sci-fi thriller 'Self/Less'
"I think I'm in a unique position," Reynolds says, "in the fact that I get to star in dramas, comedies and suspense and action films. As I've gotten older, my career has become centred on working with people I would like to collaborate with."

An intriguing premise keeps the audience gripped for about 20 minutes before the movie runs out of steam. Which is far too early. Despite the always-engaging presence of Ryan Reynolds, this fantastical thriller is slick enough to hold the attention, but fails because it's unable to generate any interest in the central characters. And instead of exploring the fascinating issues the story raises, the filmmakers instead fall back on irrelevant violence.
The story opens as billionaire Manhattan businessman Damien (Ben Kingsley) discovers he has six months to live. But he has heard about a new medical procedure called "shedding", in which his mind is implanted in a lab-grown body. At $250 million, it seems like a bargain, so he signs up with Dr Allbright (Matthew Goode) and prepares to abandon his old life for a new one. He wakes up in New Orleans as Edward (Reynolds), and begins to adjust to his fit new 35-year-old body. But after he misses his adjustment meds one day he has a series of bewildering flashbacks that make him wonder about the true nature of the shedding process. Maybe his new body wasn't so "new" after all. So he goes looking for answers, which involves teaming up with Madeline (Natalie Martinez) and seeking help from his business partner Martin (Victor Garber).
There are all kinds of intriguing themes swirling through this set-up, including issues of identity and mortality. But writers David and Alex Pastor seem uninterested in exploring any of this in lieu of a much more simplistic morality tale packed with continual shoot-out and chase scenes, plus far too much body-swapping. All of this is produced to a very high standard by director Tarsem Singh, who has a reputation for seriously stylish cinema (see The Fall or The Cell). He adds a strong edge to every scene, with intriguingly haunting editing choices and camerawork that add plenty of tension and uncertainty even if the plot itself is utterly predictable.
