What’s better than a superhero movie? A humorously-sarcastic, unabashedly-vulgar superhero movie!

Deadpool is certainly not your average superhero movie, and definitely not someone you want, or your kids to look up to; but it seems like this Merc with a mouth is the coolest film superhero we’ve seen thus far. 

Ryan Reynolds is finally getting his name up the list of superheroes who has a film to himself. After his first appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009, fans weren’t that pleased with what they’ve seen, not just the ghastly disfigured face, but just his weird appearance in the movie. If you’re thinking this Deadpool standalone film is going in that direction, you’re utterly wrong. 

Apart from breaking a fourth wall inside a ‘broken’ fourth wall, Wade Wilson (Deadpool) pokes fun at himself, his character, Marvel, the Studios and even the X-Men family - one mutant in particular, ‘someone whose name rhymes with “Pulverine”’ as Deadpool describes it. Perhaps moviegoers are getting tired of the repetitive approach on superhero films that Deadpool comes in as a fresh and unique addition that the adult fans are welcoming with open arms. It’s the first time the 18-year-olds and above felt like the story is written for them, and not the 12-year-olds who will eventually bug their parents for merchandise products. 

You will be able to sense the tone and feel of the 100-minute film right from the start at the opening sequences, introducing the important creative people and cast members with stereotypical one-off insults like ‘Ass-hats’ and ‘an overpaid tool’…. and when the entire marketing of the film is about laughing at oneself, it works. 

You can’t miss the ‘sex-y’ elements in the M-18 rated film, and we’re not just talking dick jokes - nudity is unmissable. We shall not talk about what actually ‘appears’ in Deadpool, but for a reference point, you won’t miss Deadpool’s man-hood apparatus (in costume) in a close-up shot right in the first few minutes into the film. 

If you were to strip away the pop-culture gags and spoof-like humour, Deadpool falls far lower than your average Marvel/X-Men movie. Villain, Ajax (Ed Skrein), is perhaps one of the weaker plot points, the addition of two other X-Men characters Colossus and Negasonic, who doesn’t seem to add much purpose in Deadpool’s ultimate battle against Ajax. The building up to its showdown is also interrupted with its already-packed joshing tone and crammed jokes, that the battle doesn’t leave an impact like how one would expect it to be. 

The execution of the non-linear narrative though risky, is done in such a way that it isn’t confusing. Despite the story jumps and halt of plot’s momentum here and there, the overall flow of the movie is still clear. 

The self-deprecating humour is as welcomed as the sometimes vulgar one-liners and masturbatory  jokes, which comes as a fresh genre of superhero movies that seem to be the latest method to stand out amongst the excessive expansion of comic-to-book film adaptations. In all, Deadpool is one entertaining and goofy-fun film for the adults to enjoy.
