WOW, how sad is it that I hadn’t set foot in the cinema since the beginning of January? But yesterday Deadpool finally premiered in Spain – yeah, you read that right… a whole week later than everywhere else. It sucks! – so I rushed to Barcelona to catch the first VOS session of the movie.
I won’t go into the plot of the movie, because to be honest there’s nothing especial about it, it’s an origin story, just like any other. What sets this movie apart is that everything is done differently. They got a “normal” story and went to crazy town with it.
From the moment the credits begin, with the mellow music and all, you know that this movie will be special. Yep, I was laughing before a single scene was shown. If you’ve watched it and paid attention, you know what I’m talking about.
This movie is beyond funny. Deadpool himself as a character is hilarious, but the breaking of the 4th wall, the references to other movies – such as all the jabs towards the X-Men franchise, to the sidekick who doesn’t want to move, the cab driver… every single thing is hilarious. The X-Men bits were seriously my favorites, lol… “Stewart or McAvoy?” LOLOLOL. And then there’s all the references to Ryan Reynolds himself. HILARIOUS!
The acting was superb and all the characters were amazing, even the “generic british bad guy”, eheh.
As a die-hard X-Men fan, I loved seeing Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and I loved LOVED LOVED that her suit was reminiscent of the original comic’s X-Men uniforms. BRILLIANT! 😀
It should be noted that the R-Rating should be taken very seriously. Not only there’s a lot of nudity (yep, you can definitly catch a glimpse of all of Ryan Reynolds), but brain matter, decapitations, amputations and so on happen a lot of times during this movie.
Go watch it, seriously, this might just well be my favorite superhero movie EVER, and that’s saying a lot, because I watch a lot of them.
Have you seen it yet? What are your thoughts on it?
