Right from the opening credits itself you’ll realize this superhero movie is definitely different. It is a much-needed shot in the arm for the superhero genre in general.
Deadpool is the movie adaptation with a difference. In fact, what elevates this movie to another level is not just the snarky one-liners, but the plethora of cross-references to a lot of other superhero films as well.
Smug, sarcastic, and self-aware, he’s nothing like the other guys. He’s a wisecracking antihero in a film that continually shatters the fourth wall with his sharp commentary while taking breaks from the action in the film.
I’d recommend this movie to anyone who is between 16-60 years of age.It is something that’s so entertaining you won’t just watch from start to end (the end credits are hilarious, too) but even sit back for the right-at-the-end credits (that Marvel is notorious for).
Ryan Reynolds has finally struck gold (or should I say red?) with Deadpool and even Fox does not mess up this time around. Deadpool is here to stay and I am already anticipating a heavily entertaining trilogy + possible crossovers with other films.
On the whole, DEADPOOL is quarter origin story, another quarter love story and rest whole lot of ass kicking action with brilliant, sharp, witty cuss filled humor of gore and theatricality with spot on yet subtle references to pop culture which is unmatched in this genre. It is self aware, self-referential and in full Hollywood bashing mode. Whether you have a date or not, make sure you celebrate Valentine’s Day at the multiplex playing this movie.
