Never really liked the Blade films (or comics) but the Green Lantern was horrendous and what they did to Deadpool in X-Men Origins was unforgivable... you can't sew the mercs mouth shut!

Have high hopes though... especially with it being rated for adults rather than kids and Deadpool is already breaking the 4th wall in the trailers... so it should be on the ball. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a confrontation with The Punisher... it happened in the comics, but if they put it into a film, I'll be one giddy kipper!

Trying not to highjack the thread
But i'd say the character name "wade wilson" was in that film......but not deadpool. laser beam eyes, sewn shut mouth, and sword arms? No that aint deadpool

Stryker actually calls him Deadpool in around about way... he says a "dead" mutant who had other powers "pooled" up into him... then refers to him as weapon XI, which is Deadpool's designation in the Weapon X project.

Only bit they got right was Deadpool's teleportation, but he couldn't do it through some mutant power... he had a device to teleport.

Either way, Deadpool appearing in the way he did was horrible... not quite as bad as what they did to Victor Creed... they totally stripped him of what he was in the comics... but still... one thing you can guarantee with the film industry is if they can find a way to spoil a story, they'll do it!

Finished watching it a few minutes ago. I liked it. Hadn't heard of it untill a few days ago when I read this thread.

Good casting choices too.

Saw this last night.

Well worth seeing in the Cinema rather than the small screen. Fantastic cinematography and direction, strong performances from all of the cast.

Brutal though, the woman sat next to me couldn't pull herself far enough back into her seat at a couple of points.

I've just been to see The Revenant, very good it was too. Just like Gravity was all about a bad day in space, The Revenant is about a bad few weeks in the old west, with elements of First Blood, The Last of the Mohicans and The Empire Strikes Back thrown in for good measure

I'm now looking forward to all the canvas and leather nutters having a good long debate about the clothing and kit.

Cheers, Michael

I saw it too, I was quite amazed with how determined they all seemed to get and stay as wet as possible. There always seemed to be someone fully clothed waist deep in water or tramping through without so much as taking their boots off to wring their socks out. Most reckless! Also how in the second sequence they were walking through what was quite clearly a forestry plantation.

Other than that absurd pedantry it was a great film!

Abosolutely brilliant film, one of the best Ive seen in ages. The story conflicts with other versions of Hugh Glass's story, particuarly interactions with certain colleages at the end of his "walk", but it is still an outstandingly gripping film from start to finish.
The director used only the natural lighting available, adding to its distinctly un-hollywood feel. De caprio deserves an oscar for his fine performance.

Realize its a movie, events are staged, its entertainment.
Don't judge your abilities by Hollywood.
Now have some popcorn.

Leonardo di Caprio is awesome at lighting fires though. In most of the places where he had a fire I'd have struggled if I'd had a gallon of petrol and a blowtorch.
