Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Ha! Where does one begin with this film. Did I love it, heck yes! It's a much needed break from the superhero movies that have been popping out like Pez candy. Deadpool is not the typical good guy fights the bad guys and falls in love with a sweet innocent girl, noooooo and if that's what you expect, then don't bother going to see it. Now if you want to see a guy that was dealt a really crappy deck of cards, then is mislead into something even worse and still comes out cracking jokes left and right with a touch of bloody, then Deadpool is your film.
Ryan Reynolds slays his part as Deadpool. Seriously they couldn't have pick a more perfect actor to represent this marvel anti-hero. Everything we love/hate about Reynolds is amplified in Deadpool. The grittiness of his humor, will leave you in stitches. And just when your laughter begins to calm down, BAM he hits you with another line that sends you doubling over again. Deadpool had me laughing out loud from beginning to end!
There is so much that I loved about the film, I already mentioned Reynolds acting, but the movie itself is brilliant. The delivery is not what your used to. The opening credits are brilliant, when you don't see an actors name but instead a description, such as douche bag or ass hat for director, you know your sitting at the right theater for the right film. Then cue the moments that Deadpool talks to the camera (us) was genius. Seriously the writers were on their A game when they came up with the screenplay!
As far as the story itself, Deadpool is set on finding the guy that turned him into the abomination that he is. He wants Francis (Ed Skrein) to fix his face, so that he is able to go back to the girl (Morena Baccani) he loves, which he left without saying goodbye after he was diagnosed with a terminal disease. So Deadpool stops at nothing and eliminates anyone and everyone that gets in his way (or not). A man in love is hard to defeat and bring down and that's Deadpool. So be ready to watch as he takes on all the bad guys with his swords, guns and humor!
I highly recommend Deadpool if you are looking to be entertained for the entirety of the film and seriously want a freaking good laugh. Now if you have kiddos, I would not bring them along, the R is not exaggerated. You have full nudity, the foulest language and serious gore that you don't want to have to explain to the little ones. Think Ted the movie had a baby with 300 the movie and Deadpool was the bundle of joy, clear enough for ya? lol!!!
