And why Deadpool captured the moviegoing audience's attention so well -he's far from perfect, and we can relate. When filmmakers throw a bolt into the machinery of a daring caper, it provides us with an unexpected gasp or laugh or something to keep us from falling asleep during the heroic actions we expect.
Robert Jones found those moments in 43 different movies, most of which you've seen. Enjoy this movie supercut. -Thanks, Robert!
