Deadpool (2016) – Best Superhero Movie ?

R | 1h 48min | Action, Adventure, Comedy | 12 February 2016 (USA)

Laugh Out Loud!! This has to be the funniest superhero movie ever. I did not expected Ryan Reynolds to be this funny. Was he always this hilarious? He gave a fantastic performance as Deadpool. Reynold had made Deadpool one of the most beloved characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Deadpool is a unique superhero similar to Wolverine’s ability to heal itself which made him even cooler. I would like to see a match Wolverine vs Deadpool or a crossover. That would be epic. With so many of popular superheroes being made into a live-action movie, would Deadpool be able to become part of the popularity?

Deadpool began in a fight scene where Wade as Deadpool caused a scene on a highway looking for Ajax (Ed Skrein). We saw some of his extraordinary abilities such as recovering from a bullet shot and slashing bad guys into pieces all while being funny. Also, the slow motion was pretty smooth. Until the part when Deadpool used his two swords to stab the thug and carried him up with both of his swords, that’s when the flashback began to tell us how he became Deadpool. Without revealing too much of the synopsis, Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) had a happy life with Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), but later discovered he has cancer. Vanessa was worried about Wade and looking for ways to help him. Until one day, Wade decided to abandon Vanessa to try out the experiment to cure his cancer. As a result, the cancer was gone and he has incredible power, but his face was distorted. Now, he has to wear a hood to cover his face because it is horrifying to look. That’s why Wade/Deadpool was desperately looking for Ajax to find a cure for his face. 

For me, Deadpool is an amazing adventure and comedy film where a person can laugh at almost every scene while seeing the character in bloody action. My favorite part is when Vanessa and Wade went to check his diagnosis with the doctor about his cancer. Wade was speaking in his head about how every time he looks at Vanessa’s face as if it was his first time. Meanwhile, Vanessa was asking questions after questions about ways to cure his cancer. I thought that was hilarious. The story and action are well-balanced without the generic box office hit elements. It’s not often a movie of this quality can be so entertaining. Especially when it’s about a superhero character. 

Deadpool is a crazy and hilarious movie. From what I heard it is just as loud, violent, and crazy funny as the first film. Highly recommended to all hero fans all over the world. The quick wit jokes were smooth and effortless. Deadpool is available to watch on Amazon here or FandangoNow here

London Has Fallen (2016) – Simply Amazing

Gerard Butler on Fire!!

R | 1h 39min | Action, Crime, Drama | 4 March 2016 (USA)

Imagine London is hosting a funeral event, where leaders from around the world are visiting the city to pay respect. Securities are tight and each leaders have their own group of securities. Police cars are nearly at every corner, traffic is worse than usual. Suddenly, there is an explosion and shooting  at one location, than at the other location. All are happening at the same time. World leaders are being killed one by one. It’s challenging to distinguish who are the terrorist and where the shootings come from. The goal of the terrorist group is to kill all the world leader at all cost. That sums up the synopsis of London Has Fallen.

This movie was amazing. I was shocked when I checked the reviews for this movie. A 25% on Rotten Tomatoes and  5.9/10 on IMDb. Glad I ignored the reviews and watched the movie. London Has Fallen made Gerard Butler a fearless character who can take on anyone no problem. The movie portrayed scenarios that could happen in real life. Especially now when there are homicides caused by terrorist groups in different parts of Europe.  Events like this could happen in any parts of the world which I like watching it on screen, but not experience it in real life. It has an awesome story that people who follow the current news may be familiar with such as the case with terrorist groups in the Middle East targeting people in the Western World.

The action sequences of London Has Fallen was simply amazing. All the explosions and Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) was able to take down an entire crew of armed terrorist by himself with some help of the president of the U.S. Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart). I thought it was funny when Banning was never shot despite all of the shooting he has to dodge. Meanwhile, he was reloading his weapon. Well, it was just a movie. There was so much going on in the movie that many people may not be able to understand the story. That’s what I like, a movie that makes me analyze in greater depth.

It was entertaining watching London Has Fallen. Watch the movie and ignore all of negative reviews. I highly recommended. London Has Fallen is available to purchase from Amazon here and Fandango here.
