So you've probably heard by now that Deadpool kicked ass in theaters, and you might be wondering if you should go see what all the hype is about. Well, here's a completely unaccredited, spoiler-free, short and lacking-details review from someone who really doesn't know a whole hell of a lot about movies, or much else for that matter.
Deadpool was freaking awesome! And by awesome, I mean hilarious.
The character of Deadpool prior to this live adaptation has been known as the "Merc with a mouth," or basically he's does Riddick-type work where he's a bad guy who hunts down other bad guys, but with the added twist of having a dark and sarcastic sense of humor, with the humor taking the forefront and dirty work coming in as a close second.
During this live adaption, Ryan Reynolds so solidified and nailed the description above that I can't imagine anyone else playing this character. This movie was hilarious, adult entertainment, mixed in with wicked action, spot-on acting, a rather decent plot-line, and some well written storytelling. And damn, references galore! I think The Stand has fewer Easter Eggs than this movie, and I absolutely loved it.
I really can't say much more without ruining everything, but suffice to say that if you consider yourself an easy-going sort of person that doesn't mind some dirty yet witty and clever humor, you'll love this movie.
And it was so good seeing Morena Baccarin again. I almost think her being cast was another easter egg in itself. Something about Deadpool wanting to be Captain Deadpool and her being cast as a prostitute . . . perhaps I'm going too deep now.
Ha! Get it? Too deep? Eh? No? Ah whatever, I thought it was funny.
And yes, I'll be seeing Deadpool 2.
