In the world of the X-Men, there is a new character that will make you laugh with his sarcastic remarks and his cynical look at the world. He has nothing to lose since he cannot die, like some sort of death wish. He is not your typical superhero.
“Deadpool” is an interesting person that is forced into a world of superheroes even though he would prefer not to be. This skeptical oddball loves mocking his enemies with sarcasm and irony. His unusual tactics will get him into a lot of dangerous situations and bring you on a violent but different adventure.
Wade/Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) becomes this invincible creature by strange circumstances. When he finds this special girl, Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) that he feels is the one that he wants to spend his life with, he discovers terrible news. In the past most women were either not interested or just found him rude. He even has a job scaring stalkers or geeks, since he was once one himself.
When Wade finds out that he is dying, he decides to leave Vanessa. She is not happy with his decision and pleads for him to stay. Wade then discovers a way to cure himself, but finds out it is not what he is looking for. So, with his life on the line Wade has nothing to lose or does he?
Director Tim Miller does an excellent job depicting this character. He doesn’t hold back and includes every piece of Wade’s personality and what he experiences. In this story “Deadpool’s” behavior is an important part of the story to describe and understand his persona. Also Miller uses his style of special effects and makes it an important part of this individual’s story.
This excellent story gives a unique look at this type of personality. Lots of action throughout that includes many crude comments, sexual situations, bad language and just plain crazy comedy.
Final Grade: I give this a B- for its funny slapstick style and outstanding storyline.
