About the Film
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), who adopts the alter ego Deadpool after a rogue experiment leaves him with accelerated healing powers. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool goes after the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Deadpool! Marvel’s Anti-Hero Extraordinaire! Chimichangas!
Deadpool is the story of two like-minded individuals who fall in love amidst calamitous hardships and physiology-altering mutant abilities with disfiguring side effects. Former Special Forces soldier Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) works as a mercenary-for-hire out of Sister Margaret's School for Wayward Children. Running his mouth while running odious lowlifes out of business nets him a satisfying career that also inadvertently introduces him to Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), a prostitute who shares his penchant for dark humor and funereal banter. The two quickly fall in love and become engaged, only to discover shortly thereafter that Wade is afflicted with terminal cancer. Unwilling to subject Vanessa to further torment and misery, Wilson spontaneously leaves her. When a mysterious broker offers the desperate man a possible remedy, he agrees to undergo an experimental procedure that will change his life forever. Deadpool is my all time favourite Marvel anti-hero, After waiting for this movie for years I was almost sure I would be disappointed with that high of expectations. But I was really happy to be wrong. The movie was full of hilarious references of pop-culture and classic movies. But the best ones was self-references of Ryan Reynolds. They implemented Deadpool's breaking of the 4th wall masterfully. The movie was both an origin story and a revenge/rescue story at the same time. It had a unique telling and it was effective. Ryan Reynolds was great, Ed Skrein was great all the cast felt genuine and they had great synergy. There was some tweaks and some characters were different than their comic book counter-parts but as a fan of Deadpool's comic's more than being fine with it I loved the said tweaks. The movie itself felt like a comic book there were scenes you could swear was panels. The action scenes were mind blowing. Most of the time the humour overshadowed the fluent action. Deadpool is just the movie for you if you can enjoy some dirty jokes and if you have not lived in a cave for the last 10 years and can understand the references!
Yes, just yes
I saw Deadpool the first day it came out in the cinemas, and I was amazed. Good humour throughout the whole film, excellent action and just generally great. Watch it, please.
Awesome flick! Easily worth £10 for the title sequence alone!!
