Be prepared for an unusual opening when you watch this – it was very unexpected but in the spirit of the comic book series that is largely entertaining. And the pop culture references fly in the face of cinematic brilliance but not at the expense of digging current actors and musical references. Even Ryan Reynolds takes hits at himself and the dismal Green Lantern. In-jokes abound. There’s a reason it’s rated R: it’s raunchy, racy, revolting, revolutionary, and most of all, rip-roaring fun for adults with a sordid and twisted sense of humor. My kind of movie.
