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.
