Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to 'Sparrow School,' a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. Her first mission, targeting a C.I.A. agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.
In the year 2045, the real world is a harsh place. The only time Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) truly feels alive is when he escapes to the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where most of humanity spends their days. In the OASIS, you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone-the only limits are your own imagination. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance), who left his immense fortune and total control of the Oasis to the winner of a three-part contest he designed to find a worthy heir. When Wade conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends-aka the High Five-are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS.Written by
Steven Spielberg is referenced (along with some of his movies) in Ernest Cline's source novel. Spielberg had stated that he would remove these references, although some like the Delorean and a Tyrannosaurus Rex do appear. See more »
Wade is shown wearing glasses when not in the OASIS, but after the attack at the Stacks, he doesn't wear them for the rest of the movie and he seems to be doing fine without them (reading, walking etc.). See more »
In the form of my avatar, Anorak the all knowing. I created three keys. Three hidden challenges test worthy traits, revealing three hidden keys to three magic gates. And those with the skill to survive these strengths will reach the end, where the prize awaits.

I read this book too, twice, and I Loved it. Ok I listened to the audio book version. However it took 16 hrs to listen to both times. Most films are only 2hrs long so you will never ever ever get a proper translation from book to screen in this case, it's just as simple as that. Bagging this film because of that fact is just silly. Instead, just be disappointed that they didn't realise the full potential of the story being made into a trilogy of films at-least but be thankful that one of your favourite fbooks made it to the big screen. With as much flack as he has taken, I think Earnest is true genius, from go to whoa. Very clever fella. Good for you champ. I'm still a fan mate :)
