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.
