The merc with a mouth explodes onto the big screen all over your face, neck, and chest. That’s right, this film has all the pop culture references and crude innuendos your rectum can handle. Going into this movie, I had high expectations, all of which were met in spades. All of the performances were funny and on point. It was brilliant the way the Deadpool and Colossus characters’ ideology on what it means to be a hero clashed. There were also very few slow parts in this movie as you would imagine. Ryan Reynolds put everything into getting this movie made because he knew the world was ready for this character, and that passion is apparent throughout the film.
I believe the kind of humor this character brings is just right for the current movie-going audience; it feels just right for this generation. It’s hard to say anything bad about the film because just about everything had its place. If I had Deadpool’s katana to my neck though, I would have to say that maybe the main villain is a little too plain. We basically know he’s evil, Deadpool wants revenge on him, and he’s British. I feel like I’m nitpicking on that, don’t let it stop you from enjoying his performance, because he played a great villain, we just don’t know a lot about him. This movie is great for hardcore comic book fans or just the casual superhero movie fans. I think it’s the first film I recall where both parties will enjoy it equally.
Go see it on Valentine’s Day with a date or with a group of friends. It connects with all groups verses say a Thor movie or Avengers film.
The Titan-o-talk gives Deadpool a solid 8.5 out of 10, a must see this Valentine’s Day. Just don’t bring your kids or your parents, it will get awkward.
