Deadpool 1 movie review

You can burn and remove the guts and cut off the head of Deadpool, but it will continue to progress. You can add X-Men Origins to that list. Deadpool heals those old wounds in a fun; and a daring origin story that ultimately reviews the potential of this non-stereotypical hero. But the risks the story takes with its main hero are sadly lacking elsewhere (in terms of plot and villains); Deadpool 1 is disappointingly traditional. But fortunately, there’s enough strangeness that permeates the film to compensate for these predictable elements.

One of the most important reasons Deadpool works is actor Ryan Reynolds; who can describe the character’s right. He’s a very charming, impulsive, very distinct character, and that’s not easy to look at the long time he’s spent either in full costume or under heavy cosmetic additions. He’s helped by the fact that the costume looks like it’s coming out of Marvel Comics; but it’s coming to life because of Reynolds’ physical performance and some hidden footage that was developed through the computer for the mask to give this character the level of expression you need.

Reynolds is not silent throughout Deadpool 1. It bombards you with comments, funny statements, and critical observations without pause from the first minute. Of course, when you throw a barrage of words, some words here and there must fail; but the words Deadpool mostly hit their intended target.

There’s a lot of tough humor. But the strongest comedic moment in Deadpool 1 is when the situation gets weird; puts the hero in unexpected situations like riding a taxi or washing his clothes or relaxing at home while his old roommate is in the blind housing with furniture.

There’s a strange but surreal feeling that forms the basis of the best scenes in Deadpool 1; it’s not like something I’ve seen in previous superhero movies. There’s a clear impact of Monty Python comedy inside the film; it may sometimes sound more like a surreal comedy series than a big action-comedy movie, but that’s not a bad thing. But in fact, I wish there were more.

Although the film takes a lot of risks in terms of its main character; it plays on the safe side when it comes to plot and villains. It’s a relatively straightforward story of origin that centers on a story of direct vengeance as well. Wade Wilson falls in love, is diagnosed with deadly cancer; and eventually enters a research program he may be able to treat. Instead, he is tortured and mutilated in an attempt to turn it into a secret weapon. Wilson then spends the rest of the film chasing Ajax, the man in charge of this research project.

The idea of revenge works well in distinguishing Deadpool from the rest of the characters. Most superhero movies usually present in their beginnings scenes in which the protagonist enjoys testing his new abilities (which usually involves jumping between the roofs) before accepting the responsibility that comes with these forces and becoming a hero. But Deadpool in these scenes chases the evidence and kills the people who hurt him in a bloody way. While it is not expected to see a person in a suit using her new abilities to hurt and not help people; the revenge plot ultimately lacks a satisfactory conclusion as the targets are too weak.

Ed Skrain, who plays Ajax, fails to be an outstanding villain and poses a real threat because he is given very little to do in Deadpool 1. It’s also not helped by a general ambiguity and ambiguity about his project to make super slaves. At best, we see cases of super slaves being auctioned off to rich, evil people, but there’s no hint of a deeper story going on behind the scenes, and as a result, the stakes don’t seem high and you feel that Ajax is more of a client than a villain.

He doesn’t have a sinister plan that he wants to execute, ultimately, he’s in the movie just to be pursued. At the same time, it seems that the existence of the Angel Dust character played by Gina Carano is just to hit things on Ajax’s behalf and to make it look a little moody.

In Conclusion

Deadpool changes the Marvel Universe in comic magazines, mocking its heroes and causing a lot of chaos. But in the movie, it seems more complicated. Characters from The X-Men, two specifically; appear in an attempt to give Deadpool a greater scope and connect it to a wider world. It’s great to see more Colossus on the big screen, and this character is presented more comically than previous incarnations. Watching Negasonic Teenage Warhead play a tough apprentice to Colossus, but the two characters were little exploited. Ultimately Deadpool 1 seems a bit constrained in its debut; perhaps because the company is still thinking about what it will do about X-Men movies, or maybe for budget reasons. But the film knows this.

We recommend Deadpool 2 movie review

The only thing Deadpool doesn’t curb is the elaborate bloody action. The design of the fighting movements is cool and smooth throughout Deadpool 1, such as Deadpool’s seamless swapping of pistols and swords, and beheadings and throwing them across the screen. He breaks other people’s bones and at the same time realizes his own powers when he is hurt. Make funny, funny comments in the middle of the action; such as how many accurate bullets he has left or whether he has let the stove go. These are repetitive scenes filled with intelligence and creative violence.

Woody Wilson’s character was successfully revived on the big screen in a film full of funny expressions and smooth action. But the weak villains and easy revenge plot are working to curb the film and prevent it from being something more special; but Deadpool 1 eventually offers a big dose of fun and excitement.
