Deadpool Review

Last weekend, Deadpool finally hit theaters around the world. After 10 years in the production graveyard, actor Ryan Reynolds and other passionate writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have succeeded in bringing us a live action movie based on the wildly popular anit-hero. It’s relieving to say that after so much patience, this movie does not disappoint. Any fan of the Deadpool comics will be glad to see the hero finally done justice on the big screen. The writers captured the humor and self-awareness from the comics perfectly, and the transition from book to film seems seamless. For those who may not be familiar with the character, Deadpool is an assassin turned anti-hero from the X-Men universe. What makes him so unique is that he actually knows that he is in a comic book/movie and will talk to his audience, cracking jokes and making pop-culture references through his adventures. To see a film done this way is extremely refreshing, especially since super hero movies are releasing so often now days. This movie is rated R, so its not your typical super hero flick for the family. There is a lot of violence and inappropriate stuff, but it will have you in tears from laughter and your jaw dropped from the awesome action. I’d recommend this movie to anybody who likes comedies, super heroes, violence, and definitely see it if you’re a fan of Deadpool. This movie did what it was trying to do perfectly.
