Deadpool and Daffodil Day Dream.
I spent my Saturday afternoon watching the latest Marvel blockbuster film; Deadpool. I was a little apprehensive since the last movies were good but not great. Movies like Avengers; Age of Ultron, Captain America; The Winter Soldier and The Guardians of the Galaxy (GOG does have one of the best movie soundtrack ever!) were good but not great. And they never stirred much excitement in me because I wasn’t a particular big fan of those comics. However, I when I first heard the news that they would be making a film version of Deadpool, I was excited. My only fear was that the movie studio would screw up another potential film franchise like they did with the latest reboot of The Fantastic Four.
After spending over two hours on a Sunny Saturday afternoon in a dark theater with bad ventilation, I can safely say that I didn’t waste my time. And more importantly, that the studios producing the movie didn’t screw up another marvel classic.
What I liked about the movie.
First of all, let me begging by congratulating the writers on a good well done. The successfully took the essence of the comics and transferred it over the big screen. The dialogue was crisp and funny. Not too much fluff
Secondly, Ryan Reynolds was made to play Deadpool. With this movie he successfully erased our memories of his performances in Green Lantern and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He was smart funny and played the Deadpool’s sense of humour perfectly. Ryan is what Robert Downey Jr is to Iron Man (and Christopher Reeves to Superman, he’s still the best!!!) Deadpool breaking The Fourth Wall Just like in the comics and the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day off, Deadpool breaks the 4th wall over and over in this movie. And finally, the acting of Morena Baccarin. She’s plays Deadpool’s love interest. Sexy and sultry. A dangerous combination for an action movie.
What I didn’t like about the movie.
Deadpool’s love interest. I may be showing signs of my age but I don’t remember Deadpool being in love in the comics. I found it surprising that it was such an important storyline. Perhaps Hollywood feels the need to add a love story to every movie to appeal to the female audience. Nonetheless, this time it worked. However, still not my favourite part of the movie.
Another sour point is the lack of bad guys and action. Simply put; Deadpool doesn’t kick ass often enough. They go in depth to show Deadpool’s past and how Wade Wilson becomes Deadpool. They demonstrated Deadpool’s humorist side but didn’t convey his deadly martial arts skills enough. They could have added a few more actions scenes. Especially on the Highway scene.
So far this movie is the best that I’ve seen in 2016. It’s receives 4.5 Cups of Java out of 5.
If you get a chance to see this movie, go for it.
