Wisecracking mercenary Deadpool joins forces with three mutants - Bedlam, Shatterstar and Domino - to protect a boy from the all-powerful Cable.
My husband has been collecting comic books for a zillion years so as soon as one comes out he is usually frothing at the mouth dying to see them. I usually find them to talk heavy, action all over the place and I find in the majority of the movies, I seem to become restless by the end. There has of course been some exceptions to this like with the first Iron Man, the first Xmen and ummm yeah that is about it. Maybe because they were new and exciting and brought an element of magic to the world (I have yet to find a DC movie that I enjoy). I actually was not that impressed by the first Deadpool and found Ryan's voice was grating on me by the end, it was watchable but I did not rave about it like the rest of the world seemed to. So it is fair to say I was not holding much hope for this movie.
Very rare do you go to a movie and the whole cinema is silent besides the laughter and as this takes a lot of shots at various things/peoples/events it had people laughing at various things and then on occasions the whole theater would roar at the same thing. Like the opening credits had me in hysterics especially when one of the big wigs was named as 'the man who killed John Wicks dog' and seriously the laughs just kept coming. I love movies where they do not take anything serious and nothing is off limits. I especially loved all the pot shots at the DC World (Martha 2) but that is not to say Wolverine was safe. Where as Deadpool/Wade kept saying it was sloppy writing I thought it was gold.
I had tears rolling down my eyes at one part as without saying anything (although I am dying to) it is the most epic group of superheros ever until it is not and then his legs oh my did I cry. This is the first Marvel movie that I am dying to see again it is that good. I will say there was a small window at the beginning of the film where I did think 'why did I come to this' but that disappeared so fast especially when Dolly Parton's 'Nine to Five' came on as he went on a killing spree.
There is of course naughty words, violence, adult references but it is all done so well that it just goes over your head. The soundtrack was amazing and the girl sitting next to me would start singing well truth be told so did I on occasions. It was missing the Stan Lee cameo and at the end as all Marvel watchers know you have to watch the credits but I can let you know once Deadpool does "some travel" nothing else happens. It still has the feeling of a really big budget and the special effects came out to play.
The actors were fantastic and if you read the list of people in it you will notice Brad Pitts name, it is not an error but you only see him for a second and then he vanishes (you will get the reference). Julian done New Zealand proud and our country is mentioned which was met by very loud applause in the theater (I was at the premier with his family being present). Really this movie is awesome and if you are only going to watch one Marvel movie this would be it. It makes me so excited to watch the next one.
