When we first caught wind of a Deadpool PG-13 Christmas themed movie coming this year, many were scratching their heads. Could Deadpool really work without the R-Rating? Well, for the most part, he does.
Once Upon A Deadpool isn’t just a “cash grab” though as the ads have pointed out, but rather a restructured version of Deadpool 2, complete with a new framing device and Fred Savage. Ryan Reynolds and co utilize Savage in the same way he was used in The Princess Bride, much to his dismay. Nick provides his spoiler-free thoughts on the new film in the video below.
Once Upon A Deadpool is a fun retelling, but ultimately suffers from the same issues that the theatrical cut of Deadpool 2 had in terms of character and story.
