    @simonsaybrams Exactly. It's pretty close to an ideal adaptation. Issue is whether you WANT one in first place.

    @RickyCam Well, isn't that Reynolds' persona in a nutshell? Here it meshes properly w/characters', but again, mileage will vary.

    @RickyCam That's a correct impression. The tone is of a take-it-or-leave-it variety. Depends on viewer.

    "Deadpool": Juvenile, profane, and unbelievably self-satisfied meta-snarky. Either you're w/its and Reynolds' schtick or not. I was, mostly.
