How did NCFCA members review Deadpool? Here are some samples of our members at work:

Ken Hanke:

I’m not at all sure that Tim Miller’s Deadpool is any more transgressive than Frank Miller’s much maligned The Spirit (2008) — it is definitely less stylized and stylish — though it is certainly more popular.

Adam Frazier:

Written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Zombieland) and directed by Tim Miller, Deadpool feels like National Lampoon’s RoboCop, an ultra-violent cartoon that is as immature as it is obscene. It’s Looney Tunes meets Kick-Ass, and it’s an absolute blast for fans of Marvel’s “Merc with a Mouth.”

Daniel Johnson:

Marvel’s superhero movies are essentially comedies, but the foul-mouthed, crude, raunchy, and violent as f*** DEADPOOL takes the self awareness factor to the next level. It’s the most hilarious Marvel movie yet, even though it’s not really a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (it’s a Marvel property but it isn’t owned by Disney, so it’s part of Fox’s X-Men universe), and a welcome breather from franchise fatique. Nice to finally meet you, Deadpool. Here’s hoping you don’t wear out your winning welcome.
