Deadpool is a movie to get excited about. This film is long overdue it’s been talked about since the early 2000’s. Fans were lined up February 12, 2016. This movie was expected to be better than the new Star Wars.
This is the story of a Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who goes through rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers. Then he adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with new abilities and a dark sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man that nearly destroyed his life.
Wade Winston Wilson (Deadpool) is a fictional antihero appearing in American Comic book published by Marvel Comics. Created by artist/writer Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza, Deadpool made his first appearance in “The New Mutants” #98 released on February 1991.
The cast for this film is Ryan Reynolds, Gina Carano, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, Brianna Hildebrand, Jed Rees, and Stefan Kapicic. In order from the previous sentence they played as Deadpool, Angel Dust, Weasel, Ajax, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, The Recruiter, and Colossus (voice).
This film is rated R, because of nudity, alcohol, drug use, profanity, violence and gore. The most memorable fight scene from the movie was the nude fight scene between Ajax and Deadpool. That scene follows the experiment that makes Deadpool into a mutant. The nude scene is to show him no longer feeling pain and how easily he can heal. However there is no full-frontal shot; this scene was tastefully done.
Overall this film was great. We have waited so long for this character to come to life on the big screen. Deadpool, much like its source material, is an irreverent, bloody, and riotous twist on the superhero gene- a must-see comic book movie experience. With great power come's great responsibility. That's what Spider-Man taught us. But Deadpool is as irresponsible as they come.
