Time to make the chimi-f?¢#ing-changas

Well, Ryan Reynolds finally got to make his baby, and it is a thing of beauty. Incredibly fun, this movie had just the right tone. Action, humor, romance, raunch, slicey-dicey, everything was running on all cylinders. It works so well because it actually gave a crap about the source material, and is possibly the most spot-on transition from comic to screen that I have ever seen. Everyone involved in this film deserves to be lauded for making what will surely be one of the funnest movies of the year.

With jokes flying a mile-a-minute, not all of them can land perfectly, but they hit enough consistently that I don't think I stopped smiling through this whole movie. Deadpool is a game-changer, and more studios will be scrambling to copy what they think resonated with audiences; few of them will get it right, though. Bring on the sequel!

The Shocker of Awesome

Deapool is my favorite superhero movie to date. Hmm. I feel like I have been saying that for a while now. I said that for Avengers, then for Days of Future past and now for Deadpool, and guardians of the galaxy and Ant-man were certainly up there as well. Despite all these great movies (from marvel) I've also been feeling a lot of superhero fatigue as of late. Its is most likely because of the amount of geek movie properties coming out, namely Star Wars being such a disaster. Its could also be from all the moody properties DC is coming out with; BvS and SS. Mainly though, I think I was getting tired of the Marvel properties as a whole. Avengers 2 made me exhausted and unexcited to see anything else from marvel. Because of that I was reluctant to see Ant-man (though pleasantly surprised when I did) and I've even avoided seeing Jessica Jones. Then there was the travesty of the newest Fantastic Four movie. I haven't seen that yet either but I after the announcement of the cast ...(more)

I haven't seen that yet either but I after the announcement of the cast I was sure it would be crap (the whole cast, not just Michael B Jordan). I think I am just tired of seeing artistic representations of my favorite characters on screen. Its like a robot in the uncanny valley, impressive but something is just off about it. On that note, Deadpool isn't exactly on the nose. His backstory is messed with, there is a love interest (which is actually done really well), and some other bits an pieces arnt quite there. In the end though, this movie captured the essence of Deadpool perfectly, and not just him Colossus two. I have yet to see 2 more perfect representations of their comic book counterparts, and that's saying a lot for Fox who seems to be fairly on top of the characterizations. What's more the tone of the movie matched the characters as well. The story was generic, the villain even more so, but I'll be damned if I didn't enjoy both because of the proper tone hit while telling the story. And there were some great choices like not telling the backstory to the X-Men, or explaining how colossus and Deadpool know each other. It felt like a comic book movie made for people who enjoy the Deadpool/X-men comic books. In the end, it was fun, it was funny, it had great characters, and it did exactly what it was supposed to. Not a perfect film, but it made me smile throughout the show. Great, just great. (less)

A fun film that skirts genre conventions.

Ryan Reynolds was born to play Deadpool. The actor's innate aptitude for smarmy sarcasm makes him the perfect person to play the giddy fourth-wall-breaking character also known as "The Merc with the Mouth." Not only does he thrive in the role, but it’s obvious that he’s having a blast with it. His passion translates on screen into a hilarious superhero film that’s likely to make you laugh more than most recent comedies.

At first, Deadpool’s sense of humor takes a little adjustment, given how incredibly self-aware it is right off the bat. Once you settle into its style though, you’ll enjoy how it flips the bird at traditional superhero films with its over-the-top blend of violence, profanity, and crude humor. Since the picture is an origin story, unfortunately it does have to follow genre convention from a narrative standpoint, however writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick do their best to skirt expectations as much as possible with a partially nonlinear tale.

Although Deadpool is entertaining, it’s hardly a cinematic masterpiece. It’s simply a fun comic book movie that delivers countless laughs without overstaying its welcome or campaigning too hard for a sequel. In a world filled with bloated superhero pictures concerned about building franchises and establishing cinematic universes, it’s a subversive breath of fresh air. (less)
