One of the best parts about renting movies or games through the Redbox is all the great free or discounted rental codes you can find.

Valentines Day 2016, a beautiful day of romance where couples go to the theaters and watch sappy movies about love, or even better watch a pun filled gore fest about a revenge seeking mercenary with a big mouth and even bigger swords. Yes, that is exactly what Deadpool is. Great isn’t it!
The movie begins by showing off its rated R statues with the gruesome killings of the henchmen of Ajax, the British bad guy responsible for Deadpool’s powers and disfigurement. Deadpool unsuccessfully hunts Ajax down in hopes he will fix his disfigurement. He is stopped by the X-men, all two of them, because they want him to use his abilities for good. A flashback, backstory happens and the audience discovers Deadpool used to be an ordinary mercenary with a ordinary life with his beautiful hooker girlfriend Vanessa Carlysle. He is diagnosed with terminal cancer and secretly sneaks away from Vanessa to go to the trusty secret program that claims they can cure his cancer. Turns out they are actually jerks and are force people into becoming mutants then selling them to the highest bidder. Deadpool escapes before blowing up the facility and goes after Ajax to force him to make him beautiful again. Yes, the plot of Deadpool is that he believes he is too ugly to be with Vanessa and must stay away from her until Ajax fixes his once beautiful face.
Deadpool was no doubt a big relief from Fox’s other superhero fails such as Fantastic 4 or the previous upsetting mouth-sewn-shut Deadpool of Wolverines Origins. With joke after joke and the destruction of the fourth wall, Deadpool has become my new favorite stand alone superhero movie. Sorry Iron Man, the merc with a mouth won my heart over that Valentines day. Despite the strange plot of revenge with beauty and the beast mixed into it. Deadpool felt as if he walked right out of my comics and invaded the big screen. Deadpool also brought along some of his friends such as Blind Al and Agent Bob who is working for Ajax. Another detail I loved about this movie was Deadpools costume. A costume can make or break a movie, we’ve all seen the batnipples in Batman & Robin, and Deadpools costume only added to his personality and wit.
Some of the throwbacks to the movie could have all been easily fixed. Theres a moment between Deadpool and Ajax where Ajax asks him what his real name is and Deadpool doesn’t say anything due to the trauma of the mutant gene torture. Deadpool shuts up and he is never suppose to shut up. That moment hurt my nerdy heart a little. Theres also the scene where Ajax stabs Deadpool with a pole and hooks the end so he can’t escape, next scene Deadpool simply walks out of ash, the pole no where in sight. It would have added to the gore of the movie to watch Deadpool free himself from that pole. I was also confused with Vanessa Carlysle lack of powers, maybe that will be a feature in Deadpool 2.
Despite these little nitpicks, Deadpool is a much watch for any superhero fan and even though its not a romance movie, it definitely told the best romance story I have ever heard.
