I debated about watching this movie for a long time. I've never been big on superhero/comic book/action movies...but, some years ago, I did get into the Xmen movies. Hey, Hugh Jackman, enough said. I finally broke down last night to watch this one. I figured why not, because at least I was a bit familiar with Wade Wilson from the Xmen Origins: Wolverine. Man, am I kicking myself for not watching it sooner....it was fantastic! This may not be everyone's cup of tea, especially if you don't like swearing, sex talk/jokes, etc. Fortunately for me, it is my cup of tea! Now, just like I can't picture anyone but Hugh playing Wolverine, I can't picture anyone else playing Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds was perfect! The way this movie was done, with the writers and actors (especially Ryan), it all came together perfectly! I love the humor in this movie...it was refreshing to laugh so much during an action movie. And watching it a second time today, I finally caught on to the Ferris Bueller-ness during the movie (not just the end). Which, by the way, make sure to watch after the credits. Looking forward to more Deadpool movies now!

This super hero movie is one of the greatest ones. It's not traditional super hero for sure, but that's what makes it so special. I like the fact that it does not try to deal with current political or other events. It tells a story of an above average male who gets himself into a situation, which ends up magnifying his origianal personality. All the pain did not change his positive thinking of whatever situation, fruity nor grim. All actors did really well, but dead pool, Ryan Reynolds did a super job as the Dead Pool Character - fantastic. I don't watch much movies multiple times - but this one I can watch over and over. NOTE: This movie is not for kids, not for people who can't take vulgar language, nor vilolent scenes, blood, gore, decapatation. People of strong personal beliefs against these things will not appreciate the fantastic master piece that it is; those individuals would have to be able to step outside the box, forget about what is right or wrong, realize it's a movie, see it from a difrent dimension, and enjoy.

Nine Things About the Movie "Deadpool"

1. The opening credits of this movie may be my favorite opening credits scene ever. Not only does it set the mood, it's refreshingly honest.

2. This is NOT a superhero movie, no matter what you're thinking. Nobody saves the world here. Nobody wants to.

3. It's about a ex-special forces soldier named Wade who is now an underworld mercenary. He finds a screwed-up girlfriend and they have lots of kinky sex. When he discovers he has cancer, he accepts a shady offer from a weirdo who says he can help.

4. The movie is set in the X-Men universe, and it's Wade's hidden mutant genes that trigger the changes that Wade both hopes and fears.

5. The movie is full of swearing and raunchy, smart-ass humor. And it's like a pop culture quiz show - almost every other thing Wade says is a reference to something else. There are some interesting meta-moments, like breaking the fourth wall inside of breaking the fourth wall. And Reynolds even refers to himself (the actor) as being successful in Hollywood because of his looks, not his acting skills.

6. Behind the humor, however, this movie has a sad and sadistic heart. The funny and snarky comments that Wade makes really are a defense that cover some deeper pain. It's pretty violent for a Marvel comic book movie.

7. Most of the performances in the movie aren't bad, but they're your basic, generic characters that don't really get fleshed out. The movie is all about Ryan Reynolds. It stands or falls on him. Luckily for us, he was made to play this role.

8. The scene after the end of the credits is hilarious. Only about half the audience got the reference, but those that did were clapping. No, I'm not going to say anything about it.

9. This is a relatively cynical, dark, violent flick. People that like to see superheroes as idealized, sanitized, kiddie versions of humanity need to stick with Captain America or The Avengers. The rest of us, the ones that know the world is just a series of trainwrecks... well, Deadpool is our guy.

I will definitely be ordering this movie. It was beyond awesome! It stayed true to the comic and Ryan Reynolds was born to play Deadpool! Side note to the lower star ratings: no crap its not for kids it was never made to be for kids! It was an ADULT comic, hence why it's only for adults! How about stop blaming Hollywood for them staying true to what it was meant to be. Stop being a lazy parent and look into it first before bringing your kid to an R-rated movie. Don't blame Hollywood for your own stupidity! Also this movie is for both genders so stop being sexist! Anyone with a decent sense of humor will enjoy this movie like I did! Well worth the wait and money. :-)

Hands down the best of the Marvel movies to date. Nothing about this film is not fantastic. Before you say it, no, I am not a comics geek, and I did not read the comics--this is just one helluva great superhero movie. Language warning: mature and profane, Deadpool has a very dirty mouth. But it totally fits. Ryan Reynolds is PERFECT in this role.

Deadpool is a one of a kind dark comic comedy. Though its s spin off from the Xmen saga, its Not for kids! This is strictly adult humor. Ryan Reynolds taps into a "special place" for this moody Marvel character with great chemistry with his co-stars playing his love interest, room mate and bar scene advisor. A one of a kind Marvel movie packed with action, profanity, gore and unlimited sarcasm; that will keep you in stitches throughout the whole movie. Can't wait to see what they do for a sequel.

When I watched this move a couple years ago (yeah, I'm catching up only reviews), I remarked "why haven't I heard about this Superhero before?!" I love this character as the anti-superhero and Ryan Reynolds is the perfect actor for it. Just think back to him as the lead to Waiting and you'll see a similar character.

There are very few duds. Some dialogue is so fast you haven't recovered from the last laugh to catch the next one. Although the story arc is incredibly rote (what stories on this earth are innovative anymore?), the fleshing out of the story is wonderfully done and despite the low budget (relatively speaking) the scenes are well done and entertaining. Both Miller and Reynolds have one or two flubs but these are minor and generally bookended by otherwise great interactions.

My complaint is that I wanted more. More scenes in general, more scenes and dialogue for Morena Baccarin, more verbal sparring between Reynolds and TJ Miller.

This is all despite Ed Skrein's incredibly flat character (the acting was just fine, it was a matter of the content with which he had to operate) and the most traditional of traditional story lines. I'm likewise hoping Carano gets future opportunity to DO something with the forgettable Angel Dust character (again, due to no fault of Carano's). But these criticisms all stem from essentially the same thing: more time and to some extent more budget to fill in these plot elements (or not, in Ajax, which is fine too). Had I got everything I wanted, the movie would have been 7 hours long.

Now this movie was an awesome bucket of awesomeness. Ryan Reynolds embodied the deadpool charger so well, the screenplay was well crafted and mirrored the character greatly, there were so many amazing nods and jokes that provided sufficient entertainment. You will not be disappointed, please be aware this movie is full of profanities and NSFW imagery. Love it hate it, I always say not all actors can embody certain characters and this role was made for Ryan much like how Nicholas Cake was made to be Big daddy in the Kickass movie and also Joe in the movie Joe (2013 film)
