Ryan Reynolds vanquishes the ghost of his failed Green Lantern franchise and reclaims his squandered villain role from Wolverine (2013) as the titular antihero in this raunchy Marvel action flick. As directed by Tim Miller (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), the story of a mercenary transformed into a fast-healing superhuman runs on snide comedy, with a nice romance, some drama, and hard-core action sequences thrown in for good measure. The film is packed with in-jokes (it has more pop culture references than the average Gilmore Girls episode) and gratuitous gore, which is almost always played for laughs. Fans of X-Men will gobble it up, especially lewd teenage boys; newcomers to the Marvel Universe may miss some of the best zingers. With Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, and T.J. Miller.
