There’s not a lot here, making one suspect the first "Zoolander" would have been better left as a stand-alone cult classic.
For those who feel superhero films have become stale and predictable, "Deadpool" provides as much of a shock to the system as the ice water bucket challenge.

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a viewer in search of two hour’s quality entertainment won’t find it here.
There are some good one-liners and offbeat moments but the goal is more to provoke chuckles than guffaws.
Kids will appreciate what this has to offer. It provides a less fulfilling experience for older viewers, who may be diverted but are unlikely to be enthralled.
With expertly crafted high seas disaster sequences, "The Finest Hours" feels more like a summer spectacle than a winter throw-away.
"Son of Saul" is a powerful achievement but I don’t think I could sit through it more than once.
There seems to be little reason to see "The 5th Wave" unless you’re a fan of unfinished stories that likely will never be completed.
The movie is imperfect and overlong but it’s never boring.
