Deadpool Review (Spoilers)

deadpoolThe merc with the mouth finally gets his own movie. I’m going to start off by saying this is one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen in my life. Ryan Reynolds was born to play Deadpool, he’s perfect for this role and I can’t imagine the movie without him. By the way we have to give credit to Fox for having the guts to make this movie R rated. It paid off, the gore and the language make this movie stand out from all the other superhero movies.

So first what I liked: Colossus and make Negasonic Teenage Warhead make this movie 10 times funnier, the way they play off each other and Deadpool adds a layer of entertainment value to the movie that even I didn’t expect. Blind Al was surprisingly funny and the scene where she and Deadpool are arguing over IKEA furniture is brilliant. Deadpool breaking the fourth wall, every once in a while he speaks to the audience and mocks the fact that he’s in a movie; sounds like it would get stupid after a while but it doesn’t it invests you more in the character.

Now what I didn’t like and it’s a short list: TJ Miller as Weasel there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this character but they used him very poorly. Towards the end of the movie when Deadpool is getting ready to go on his revenge mission he asks Weasel to come with him and his excuse for not going is “I don’t want to” it just seemed cheap. The villains are terribly one-dimensional we don’t even know why they are evil we just know they are. That’s literally all that I can complain about this is one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen and the more I think about it the more I like it.

Here are some things I think they can do for the sequel: show me the psychotic aspects of Deadpool. In the comic books Deadpool isn’t just a goofy superhero, he is psychotic throughout the comic books he has debates with himself. With this team I think there’s a lot they can do with that aspect of the character. Bring in Cable and Domino: in the comic books Domino is Deadpool’s wife and she is also a member of the X force that Cable leads. Cable could be the straight man that Colossus was and they even reference him in the end credit scene.¬†Speaking of credits the opening credits for this movie are amazing.¬†I can’t speak highly enough of this movie, please go see it. I give Deadpool a 9.5/10
