New DEADPOOL Poster 
Deadpool (2016)

Starring: Ryan Reynolds
Release Date: Feb 12, 2016
Directed By: Tim Miller
Written By: Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick
Rating: 4.6/5

Summary: Ex-special forces agent, Ryan Reyonlds, Wade Wilson, gets put in an experiment that leaves him with the insane super power of regeneration, leading him to create his alter ego, Deadpool.

My Thoughts:  I don't usually like action flicks, but must I say this one surpassed every expectation I had for it completely. Knowing little to nothing about the comic book world of Deadpool or just about any mutant or superhero besides Batman ever, I am glad to say that wasn't a problem when watching this movie because in 2016, there are superhero/villian movie trailers dropping left and right and I'm truly afraid to go into them blind like I did with this one because I won't know anything and I'm very afraid of that lack of knowledge ruining the film. However, that wasn't the case for Deadpool as there was tons of background information in flashbacks and whatnot and I was impressed by the way it was handled because a lot of action films that do the whole flashback and flashforward thing too much and it becomes more of an annoyance than an aid in that case, but Deadpool didn't let me down.

Deadpool starts right off with action and not quickly paced, annoying kind of action, but visually pleasing, somewhat insane and unbelivable (which is acceptable for a superhero movie) and almost orchestra-like action. The pacing of it was beautiful and for someone who doesn't like action that much, it was something I could get into. But not only was there action, but there were also a lot of dirty jokes, which was another thing I was scared for with this film because in the trailers and whatnot, the jokes and action felt forced and unnatural to the point that it made me quite uncomfortable especially with all of these things coming from Ryan Reynolds because I'm quite back and forth on how I feel about his acting abilities. But, alas, Ryan Renolds impressed me a lot with his ability to not take everything over the top because this movie could've just gotten real sloppy and Disaster Movie-esque real quick, but it didn't, which I so appreciate beacause, again, from watching the trailers, I thought it was headed in that direction.

And so, we have Deadpool. For a girl that doesn't do action flicks, this kind of film is something I can get into because going into the film, we're presented with a lot of things that could be misconstrued as problems, but the movie handles them so well that they actually benefit it, so hat's off to you, Deadpool. I had the most fun in a while watching this film, so I hope you do, too.

  1. I really don't like action either and I LOVED this movie. I also knew nothing about the comic before I went to see it. I asked my son about him (because he's into the whole Marvel world), but all he said was "he's this weird guy"... LOL he was pretty accurate in that description. I thought it was funny in all the good ways... and you're right, it easily could've went bad. I definitely want to see it again when it comes out on DVD.

    1. Yes, exactly! Oh my, lol, "the weird guy". He is pretty weird, but it's true. I'm excited that they've already like greenlit a sequel because it looks like a good franchise if they don't oversell it. I'm definitely buying this on DVD when it comes out.
