Rob Liefeld Reviews Once Upon a Deadpool

There has been plenty of uncertainty surrounding Once Upon a Deadpool, as the PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2 will remove much of the vulgarity and crude humor that helped make Deadpool one of the most popular and original superhero movie characters. Although audiences will certainly have to decide for themselves how they feel about the film, Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld thinks Once Upon a Deadpool is a marriage made in comics heaven.

In a post on Instagram, Liefeld offered his followers a review of the project that turns Deadpool 2 into a more acceptable film for families and children. Although Liefeld confesses that, like many skeptical fans, he had no idea what to expect when sitting down for the movie, he gave Once Upon a Deadpool "two swords, way up."

"Trust me when I tell you that Once Upon a Deadpool contains some of the very best, most vicious humor and unforgettable sequences of any Deadpool film to date," Liefeld wrote. "Sure, they could have just assembled a PG-13 airplane cut of the film, but no. Ryan cooked up one of the most daring and insane outings this series has seen."

Another one of the more promising aspects of Liefeld's review is the suggestion that Once Upon a Deadpool doesn't simply rehash Deadpool 2. According to Liefeld, Once Upon a Deadpool feels like a new movie entirely, which is an added bonus for Deadpool fans wanting more jokes to rehearse while waiting for Deadpool to return to the big-screen.

Liefeld also praised Fred Savage in the film, with the comics creator considering Savage "the most formidable opponent that Deadpool has ever faced."

For fans worries about the PG-13 rating's effect on the movie's humor, Liefeld's review is certainly reassuring.

Appearing in theaters from Dec. 12 to Dec. 24, Once Upon a Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds, Zazie Beetz, Morena Baccarin, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapičić, Julian Dennison, Josh Brolin and Fred Savage.
