Deadpool Movie Review

So Deadpool has gotten mostly good reviews, but it is still hanging around in the 80’s in at the moment (it is at 84 as I write this). That leads me to believe that some movie critics simply do not understand the character or they simply are too much of a snub to admit that they enjoy raunchy humor.

Deadpool is indeed one of the best superhero movies ever made, though I am not sure that we can call the title character a “superhero”. He is not a good guy, not by far. However, I think it is ok to call it that because it does exist in the X-Men universe. We do see the X-Mansion, Colossus, and the Negasonic Teenage Warhead. The movie is also the best R-Rated movie in the genre. Overall I am ranking Deadpool at number 4 among all the superhero movies ever made and I have seen all of them. I am thinking that only Avengers, Captain America Civil War and Age of Ultron are on top of it which means that in my least it knocked the Dark Knight down to number 5.

There is no confusing this movie with a kids’ movie. It is violent, raunchy and there is a fair amount of nudity and sexual jokes, but nothing ever feels forced… except for the international women’s day celebration; that does feel forced, but in a good and funny way (you will get it when you see the movie).

The villains were great and the interaction between Deadpool and Ajax was amazing. Perhaps they used a joke about the name a little too much, but I was still laughing at the end. Angel Dust is also a great character which I hope we get to see a lot more of in sequels or even in the X-Men movies.

Colossus, Negasonic and Weasel were also highlights of the movie. You get a good cop-bad cop feel from the Colossus-Deadpool relationship and it works perfectly. Negasonic Teenage Warhead is very different from the comics and she reminded me more of Cannonball, but since Negasonic was not in the comics much I did not mind it. Negasonic was at the end one of my favorite characters.

For those of you that did not know it, Deadpool is one of the few characters in comic books that regularly breaks the 4th wall and he does so in the movie in very funny ways. That also includes the after-credits scene. The fans will love that scene tough non-fans are likely to wonder what it was about.

In the end, Deadpool is a must see movie. It is funny in every way and it was structured so that you are never bored. The movie is intense and you will likely want to see it again and again. We are giving Deadpool a very high rating of 4.9 out of 5.
