Memorable. Funny. Fresh.
A mercenary diagnosed with cancer tries to cheat death by undergoing a sketchy black market operation. The outcome is that he beats cancer, but becomes a hideous mutant in the process. Now he is out for revenge. The bloated pool of superhero pictures is given a much-needed refreshment in the form of the fourth wall breaking, subversive Wade Wilson. Although the overall plot is rather bare, the film makes up for it with a unique structure (nonlinear) and some clever humor. Most importantly, it finds its tone and sticks to it all the way through.
