Deadpool : Movie Review

By on February 12, 2016

Ryan Reynolds has found his calling as the ‘Eminem’ of the superhero genre. Deadpool is here to call out the fakes and salute the greats, his not interested in doing good but just self serving with no regrets and we’re along for the ride.

The story is actually smaller than you think. It’s about Deadpool searching for Ajax, a British villain who gave him his powers but left him horribly disfigured.

As a comic book fan, I know the ins and outs of Deadpool and his abusive relationship with the Marvel universe. His always had a ‘Jack Sparrow’ role in the books, pure Id with a rusty moral compass. The big question is “can he hold a movie together without the nonsense getting old fast?” Simple answer, yes he can. The movie is good, really good and that works for it. Like I said, he’s the Eminem of the superhero community, dropping meta jokes left and right. Shooting first both physically and verbally and asking questions later.

The R rated material in the movie is not just for show. It adds layers to the love story and subsequent consequences there after. It’s indirectly directed at kids who are just ‘finding their grown up parts changing’, an edger presentation of the superhero that we enjoyed back in the day with Blade.

The generic action scenes don’t hurt the movie at all, It all fits the narrative in a quirky way. There’s nothing special about the dialogue but you still invested in the characters on screen. When the movie slows down the laughs don’t stop, we’re reminded of the relationship Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) and Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) have and how it’s the underlying factor of why Wade wants his face fixed by Ajax.

The end credit scene was dope, I won’t spoil it for you.

The Merc with a mouth is here to stay so get comfortable.
