Before entering the cinema I was really not too sure what to expect from Deadpool as films that have as much as strong marketing campaign always seem to flunk or fall short, which is not really there fault it finds itself over hyped and oversold.
So I decided to ignore the trailers and skits that I had seen and enjoyed very much prior to my viewing of the film, which turned out didn’t matter as the film was one of the most enjoyable experiences I have had via film.
Deadpool brings an element of crudeness and crass that was missing from the marvel franchise and a level of comedy that too was missing, It is a superhero movie for the adult audience and in that sense it is absolutely perfect.
Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool/Wade Wilson) plays the part perfectly with his well presented comedy moments as well as his hilarious interaction with the other cast, notably with T.J. Miller (Weasel) particularly in the scene where he reveals his scars after his rogue experiment.
In Between the more adult jokes which consisted mostly of masturbation, farting and sex there were plenty of inside jokes for dedicated Marvel fans particularly towards Hugh Jackman and Wolverine. Also not to mention jokes aimed at Reynolds less critically acclaimed role as The Green lantern although blink and you’ll miss it.
Deadpool is a fast paced, witty and gleefully profound experience that will bust down the 4th wall subverting the the superhero formula with a wild and a non family friendly result, and although this film is rated at a 15 it most certainly could be an 18.
