    ★★½

    This one is a notorious Video Nasty, and it's not hard to see why given the violence and one scene of graphic female masturbation in a 42nd street peep show. If you're a fan of "Maniac" or "Don't Go into the House", or any other assorted grimy slashers that use New York as a backdrop, you'll probably find a lot to enjoy from this one, although New York is only one of several locations this film takes advantage of.

    Apparently an intended Wes Craven project that fell into the hands of Ruggero Deodato, who was not up to a lot at the time, this later period Italian exploitation film actually has a lot to offer in the entertainment, casting, and violence and gore departments.

    Remember "Shoot'Em Up"? This is that, with more jokes, and less smarts. From what I understand about the character of Deadpool (I've never read the comics) this seems pretty true to what that character is about. A fourth wall-breaking, super-powered anti-hero hit man. Outside of some of the jokes and performances, most of the plot is ho-hum, and the action scenes were competent, but only had real sizzle when they are set-ups for jokes. No doubt the hype train and the die-hard fans of this character will make this a "classic". This was fun, but I never need to see it again.

    There's Crampton, there's some ideas, and there's a lot of leaning on VHS obsessed nerds remembering the good ol' days. That unbelievably massive rental store made me smile, I'll admit. Then there's a lot of stuff that goes nowhere. Far too much. Oh well, there's been worse retro throw-backs.
