Deadpool fans rejoice. Fox has more than made up for the mistake they made with the character back in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. This time around we get the merc with a mouth in all of his glory. Right from the opening credits you can tell Deadpool is going to be something special, with snarky descriptions instead of actual names. You can immediately tell Deadpool is for fans, by fans The cast is brilliant throughout. Deadpool is a relatable character to anyone who has ever felt like an outsider.
The cast is brilliant throughout. Morena Baccarin is great for the love interest Vanessa, being equal parts tough and vulnerable. Of course, the movie isn’t called “Vanessa Finds Love” so you have to have an equally great Wade Wilson. Quite simply put Ryan Reynolds IS Deadpool. There is no one that could bring Wade Wilson to the big screen better. As always with comic book movies If you don’t stay for the end credits scene you’re doing yourself a major injustice.
With a budget of $58,000,00 Deadpool doesn’t have the major cash that other comic book movies do, but that didn’t hurt it at all. In fact, the cheesiness of some scenes worked perfectly for the character.
It took seven long years to get the fan favorite Deadpool we all know and love. Fox was hesitant to have an R-rated comic book movie, but I think they’ll be surprised. At my local theater, it is selling out each showing. I want to thank Fox, Ryan Reynolds and the rest of the cast and crew for bringing my favorite Marvel character to life and not sacrificing any integrity of the film by making it PG-13. Deadpool is everything any fan could wish for. So get some chimichangas and go see Deadpool immediately.
