(2018) (Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action/Comedy: An unlikely superhero with a wicked sense of humor tries to stop a man from the future from killing a troubled and dangerous mutant teenager.
- Following the murder of his girlfriend, Vanessa (MORENA BACCARIN), during a home invasion, former Special Forces op turned unlikely superhero Deadpool -- a.k.a. Wade Wilson (RYAN REYNOLDS) -- doesn't want to go on living. When not drowning his sorrows at the bar run by his friend, Weasel (T.J. MILLER), he tries to kill himself, but his immortality stymies that attempt. Like before, the hulking and metallic Colossus (voice of STEFAN KAPICIC) and the energy wave controlling Negasonic Teenage Warhead (BRIANNA HILDEBRAND) want him to join the X-Men, and he reluctantly agrees and signs on as a trainee.
Their first mission is to stop troubled mutant teenager Russell Collins (JULIAN DENNISON) from inflicting further damage -- via his fire-controlling abilities -- at the mutant rehabilitation school where he lives Deadpool talks him down, but when he learns the teen was reportedly abused and tortured by the administrators, he kills one of them, ends up captured -- with both his and the boy's superpowers controlled by collars around their necks -- and sent off to prison.
It's there where a man from the future with a vendetta, Cable (JOSH BROLIN), arrives and tries to kill Russell, with the now resurrected Deadpool only barely managing to save the teen. He then decides he must recruit other superheroes to help him battle the future man, but only Domino (ZAZIE BEETZ) -- whose superhero is managing to manipulate luck that keeps her out of harm's way -- survives. With Russell, a.k.a. Firefist, eventually teaming up with the massive Juggernaut, it's up to Deadpool, Colossus, and Domino to prevent Russell from making his first kill and turning him into the future killer who will alter Cable's world and thus send him back into the past.
