Review: Deadpool (movie)

I’m sorry, I don’t think I can do a legitimate review on Deadpool. Not a good review at least. First off, there are about 800 spoilers I’d need to avoid… So to keep it vague enough not to spoil the fun comments, witty banter, and spoofs… I don’t know that I can do it justice. So I’ll hit on the one thing that I struggled with and the one thing I really liked.

I will say, I struggle with Wade Wilson.  Now, it could be that I am showing my very-white-middle-class snobbery here… but I’ve never met anyone that rude, snarky and… at time downright cruel who wasn’t also miserable. And they were rude, snarky & cruel to make everyone match their misery.  It makes sense after he’s Deadpool.  Less sense before. Maybe I just need more back story to help accept his level of “still-human-crazy.”

Taking out that bit of I-want-more-character-development… I loved the movie and all it’s insanity. I like that they did a bit of time back-and-forth. It was just enough to keep the movie interesting and just stayed on the fun side of disjointed.  I thought it was a brilliant knife’s edge, playing the timeline itself into the character.

Short and sweet. To get anything more, you’ll just have to watch the movie yourself. And any superhero-movie fan should. It’s a unique twist on the genre.

Writer, nerd, and perpetual student. I am obsessed with books - both the reading and the making of them. If I won the lottery I would try to have the best private(ish) library in the world. It wouldn't be totally private because the whole purpose of having books is helping other people find a book they will love. I have 2 cats, Genkii (energy) and Kawaii (cutie). I will mention them regularly because they are a daily delight in my life. Granted, sometimes when I'm playing video games they are not so much "delight" as they are "distraction"... but I love them regardless.
