Test footage from the unlikely-but-not-impossible Deadpool movie has been appearing and disappearing all over the Internet for the past few days, with a high-res version popping up on Vimeo (since deleted) and DailyMotion (the player above).
Here's what we know about it: director Tim Miller and actor Ryan Reynolds made the two minutes or so of footage back in 2012 to convince 20th Century Fox to greenlight a film. It hasn't convinced them yet, and Reynolds has been less than optimistic about the movie's chances in recent interviews. Fans can assume that if there had been (or could be) a Deadpool movie, it would have looked a lot like this. There's a lot to like about what's in here, and a few things that seem to be missteps. Let's take a look.

In our latest series of super-hero movie reviews, Chris Sims and Matt Wilson take on the films chosen by you, the readers: X-Men!
Chris Sims: Welcome back to our entirely unnecessary in-depth review of X-Men Origins: Wolverine! When we last left off, Wolverine was walking away from an explosion in slow motion, which is a pretty nice summary of the entire film.
Matt Wilson: An explosion that Wolverine caused by setting a fire wit
Chris: Welcome back to Ice Skating Uphill for the final installment of ComicsAlliance's Unnecessarily In-Depth Review of the Blade film franchise! We're at the mid-point of Blade Trinity, and when we last left our heroes, Dracula had taken to the streets in order to take out Blade once and for all!
David: In his corner: time-lapse montages! It's really amazing how much blander this movie is than the previous two. David Goyer: just not a very innovative director.

'Green Lantern' cleared 50 million bucks on its opening weekend, and while others will undoubtedly discuss what that means for the movie, a possible franchise and DC Comics, what's vastly more interesting is talking about the movie itself. It was entertaining, but flawed. After the jump, we're going to sit down and discuss five thi
