You know the drill: man is faced with a personal crisis where some arch nemesis is to blame, so in order to get the girl and his life back, he goes on a quest to destroy this enemy - all while saving the world. I do like a good old fashion superhero story, but was blown away by Deadpool’s twisted version of it.
Some critics called Ryan Reynolds antics in the movie raunchy and it was in some parts. But, for the most part it was actually full of clever fourth wall breaking, awesomely awkward point of view camera angles, and great cinematography action scenes. It reminded me a little of the film Guardians of the Galaxy, but way more awesome and edgy with sarcasm. I also think Reynolds deserves a special shout out for superb comedic acting. He was so good I forgive him for making Green Lantern which he even pokes fun at the flop in this film.
What I liked most about Deadpool was when the typical cheesy parts in a superhero movie were happening they found way to make it more enjoyable with humour. The best example is when Deadpool’s love interest Vanessa takes off his mask to see his deformed faced for the first time and instead she sees a picture of Huge Jackman’s Wolverine stapled to his face. This moment cuts the awkward cheesy tension and allows the audience to giggle at Reynolds' twisted sense of humour.
Thanks to the Farris Buller parody scene during the end credits there is hope for a sequel. I'm sure it will be even more bizarre and twisted than the first - I can't wait.
