Synopsis: Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), kidnaps actor Fred Savage and force-tells him a story of how he brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.

Reaction: Even with the edits to make it PG-13, there's still plenty of stuff here to keep it from being particularly family friendly, but the action is well done and the humor works quite well.

Personal Rating: 8/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • In the post-credit-scene of the Christmas family friendly version Once upon a Deadpool, a tribute to Stan Lee is included, with his year of birth incorrectly stated to be 1923 when its actually the year before 1922.
  • Julian Dennison revealed on the storybook teaser geared towards New Zealand audiences, Once Upon a Deadpool has more than 20 minutes of new footage. However, as we've heard before, any new scenes that were conceived by Ryan Reynolds and franchise writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick only involved the framing device that features Deadpool reading his own story to a kidnapped adult Fred Savage, in a nod to his childhood role in The Princess Bride. But, for instance, there's a scene where the Merc with a Mouth addresses an old couple sitting on a bench and makes a reference to the sad opening sequence in Up. That's a scene not in the theatrical cut of Deadpool 2, but it is a deleted scene on the Blu-ray release.
