A movie that starts of by saying that it is produced by “Asshats” and directed by “An Overpaid Tool” is a total winner in my books. 😀
This is hands down the MOST entertaining movie experience I’ve ever had in my life. No hyperbole intended.
[Note: The following review is SPOILER FREE]
Excerpt Taken from Rotten Tomatoes:
“Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.”
My Take on the Movie:
Before starting my review I’d like to applaud the Marketing Team of this movie. That whole department alone deserves a special category in the Oscars. I’ve read a few Marvel and DC Comics over the years but I never planned on reading Deadpool. I don’t know, I just wasn’t into the “Merc with a Mouth”. But the adverts and marketing of Deadpool swept me away! Seriously tho, that is the only reason I was excited to see it. Not only its trailers, TV spots, outdoor and print ads; its Social Media game was on point. I mean, just look at this!
If you wanna learn how to sell a hardcore, violent, raunchy, action-packed, comic-based movie at a time of the year when girls are squealing to their boyfriends to take them to a sappy rom-com, then please contact the person who made this cover 😛 Simply genius 😀
Coming back to the review.
I have nothing against Marvel movies – I’m a huge die hard fan – but we all know that they are popular for their big budgets, the big names, big-time superheroes, loud mind-blasting action, over-usage of CGI and their snarky but cute humor here and there. Ant Man was a very fine exception from that rule, and I love that one to bits; but what I loved the MOST about Deadpool (another movie with a tight budget) were it’s unique style of storytelling and script.
My goodness, this is how you turn a painfully overdone superhero formula into a BENCHMARK for all other comic-book films.
