pool" last night and i am glad to say it was worth all of the hype. let's take a look. >>reporter:the marvel universe is always expanding at an exponential rate. and "dead pool" is an extension of the x-men that is a little more x-rated. we got our initial glimpse of him in 2009 as a small part of wolverines for -- first spin off neither the movie or the character adaptation were received very well, that they have gone back to the drawing board and returned with a much more faithful take on this forthright vigilante. and in order to be faithful, it must also be unexpurgated which means it is all but family- friendly. >> no one is getting hurt. >>reporter:in addition to the extensive violence there is plenty of sex, nudity, profanity and good-natured vulgarity. while the kids may be begging to see the latest superhero movie, remember and has armed an r rating for good reason i should probably be respected. however, if they're not -- and
6:42 am
assortments of decadence, "dead pool" makes for all sorts of fun. the first person narration keeps the punchlines coming as fast as the punches. many times the jokes are pointed squarely at the film, with plenty of inside references for the most committed of comic connoisseurs. for all of those who are unacquainted with this character, just sit back and enjoy the ride. the movie serves as an origin story that our hero, or shall i say antihero is happy to convey. he does it so well that we can finally forgive him for green lantern. the easily offended should probably set this one out, while the rest of us dive headfirst into the "dead pool." i suppose, as with all marvel movies, you have to make a point of sticking around throughout the credits for a
