AS Deadpool 2 clumsily parachutes out of cinemas and into homes (available September 17 on DVD and Blu-ray), Close-up Culture try to pick out our ten favourite Ryan Reynolds films.
10. The Croods (2013)
REYNOLDS gives voice to a prehistoric inventor named Guy in this warm DreamWorks animation.
9. The Hitman’s Bodyguard (2017)
A film that hinges on the chemistry of its lead characters, Reynolds bounces entertainingly off Samuel L Jackson to distract from a rather weak plot.
8. The Proposal (2009)
THIS romantic-comedy showcases the irresistible charm that made Reynolds one of Hollywood’s favourites.
7. The Voices (2014)
REYNOLDS shows off his talent for dark comedy as schizophrenic serial killer Jerry.
6. Deadpool 2 (2018)
MORE of the same mischievous fun for Reynolds in the second outing for his third wall breaking superhero.
5. Definitely, Maybe (2008)
ADAM Brooks’ clever romantic-comedy sees Will (Reynolds) recount his past relationships to his daughter.
4. Adventureland (2009)
AS theme park handyman Mike, Reynolds does a great job of portraying a promiscuous, fib-telling jerk.
3. Mississippi Grind (2015)
REYNOLDS plays the charismatic final throw of the dice to Ben Mendelsohn’s wearied gambler in Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden’s enjoyable road movie.
2. Buried (2010)
IF anyone doubted Reynolds’ dramatic capabilities, he shut them up by turning 90 minutes trapped in a box into a tense and memorable experience.
1. Deadpool (2016)
THE role that defines his career so far, the crude and quickfire comedy of Deadpool is the most comfortable Reynolds has been on film.
