One of the movies we were most excited about in 2016 was Deadpool. Opening here on Wednesday it was screened for critics in the US last week and has gone down very well with the movie scribes.

Trade bible Variety were quick to heap praise, saying "Ryan Reynolds gets the full-throttle wisecracking showcase he deserves in this scabrously funny origin story."

The Hollywood Reporter chimed in with similar praise. "Deadpool drops trou to reveal itself as a really raunchy, very dirty and pretty funny goof on the entire superhero ethos, as well as the first Marvel film to irreverently trash the brand."

Empire weren't as praiseworthy handing the film 3 stars, but overall reviews are firmly in the positive as the film sits at 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.

We're seeing it tonight, so expect a review early doors tomorrow.
