Snarky and not appropriate for children, Deadpool is a hit…right in the face, stomach, balls…I give it an A.
When cancer leaves mercenary, Wade with no time left, he opts for a strange experiment to cure him but it does more than stop the cancer. It turns him invincible and hideously disfigured.
Raunchiness abounds in this story where Deadpool breaks the fourth wall and speaks to the audience as well as makes fun of everything and anything, including his previous movie-X-Men: Origins Wolverine. While the storyline is predictable, bad guy goes after Wade’s girlfriend after Wade seeks revenge on the bad guy “Francis” who disfigured him, the movie entertains.
Unlike Hail, Caesar, Deadpool knows exactly what type of movie it is, even if Wade doesn’t want to be a hero. And while it’s an action movie, it’s also a romance and comedy. Ryan Reynolds delivers the one-liners with conviction. I couldn’t see anyone else in this lead. I can’t wait to see the cut scenes that they didn’t use!
Deadpool ties into the X-Men world and features two X-Men: Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead. They want to have Deadpool join the X-Men and behave, but Deadpool is all about his own agenda, which has nothing to do with educating the younger generation unless it’s about sex and swear words.
Remember that this movie is not for young children. It is rated R for a good reason (nudity, swear words, etc.). Deadpool isn’t a true hero but an anti-hero and he lets it all hang out, literally. Like many Marvel movies, be sure to watch for the Stan Lee cameo and stay until the very, very end (after the credits) for special scenes that hint at the sequel.
It's all about the movies...
