Ryan Reynolds is awesome! Deadpool's awesome! And that's just the beginning of our review.
Right from the opening titles, which by the way is also pretty damn cool, until the end, Deadpool grips you, like you have been pinned down to the seats through your heart with Deadpool's Katana!
Deadpool is the story of Wade, who claims to be the rightful owner of a fate that's as screwed up as that of a lonely man in a labyrinth of purgatory. During one of the very few brief breaks of happy moments from his usually dreadful life, he falls in love with a beautiful woman, Vanessa, played by Morena Baccarin, who also claims to have an equally lousy life. That's when ill fate decides to return to Wade after a quick break and gifts him a terminal cancer. Wade then makes a bad choice and ends up Deadpool. How the rest of the tale turns out to be a Valentine's weekend treat is for you passionate romantics to find out. 
Despite all the extraordinary VFX, stunts and miscellaneous superhero elements, it is the humour that drives the movie. Ryan Reynolds, who has his face covered for the major part of the movie, still brings out a top notch performance. His performance is driven by his madcap body language and eccentric theatricals. 
The strongest attributes of Deadpool, barring Ryan, are its whimsical dialogues and a brilliant screenplay. Profanity brings a lot of humour into the film too. But if you are watching the movie in India, thanks to our Censor Board, you have to be incredibly good at lip reading or you could assume what the characters would be saying at that circumstance and laugh at your own comedy.  But the mutes don't affect the entertainment value of the movie, although one might wish the movie could have done away with the mutes, considering it is an 'A' rated movie, anyway. 
Every single department in the movie- the performances, dialogues, screenplay, cinematography, stunts, editing and "Wham!" the music, is brilliantly laced with humour. The connect to the X-Men franchise was also dealt with brilliantly and as Ryan's dialogue goes in the movie, it was indeed like the studio couldn't afford more X-Men. 
Deadpool also has a stereotypical super-villain, Ajax played by Ed Skrein. But that's required for the story, after all and any attempt to try to make the villain more sophisticated, might affect the simplicity of the story. 
The lack of complexity and the light hearted treatment of Deadpool are a huge relief as a viewer. There's no need for our thinking hats, which anyway don't seem to work half the time.
In a nutshell, Deadpool is just awesome!
Verdict: Deadpool is 'The Mask' in a superhero costume, with just more tricks up his sleeves. It’s totally worth it!
