Waste of talent

Movies People Self/less (2015) Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds can act but never seems to get the chance to do so in recent films.. Maybe that's on him for his role choices, I don't know. But he's been in loads of films where he's just playing the same type of action-y character - his character in Self/less is interchangeable with him in Safe House for example. Is it just easy money to be in this kind of film (which basically descends into a chase sequence) or did it look better on paper when he read the script??

And the climactic scene where he sets the bad guy on fire with a flame thrower was just nasty. How can you have sympathy for his character after that?

As the main character he normally has trouble staying on point because he usually is more of a comedian than an actor (same with Chris Pratt often). That was painfully obvious in Green Lantern. But Deadpool is a role he was born for. His talent is best use as that character and i hope he makes many films and cameos.
