Ok.. What can I say..
I went with friend, we laughed, we came out happy, as it ended I said “just the right length” and yes we stayed for the sugar at the end .. Wait for it after the credits
DeadPool is not your usual marvel / xmen action flick for the kids.
It breaks the rules and makes itself a place that will I’m sure be a favourite for many more years to come – especially with those old enough to watch it now.
Without spooling the film and gags – it combines a Liam Neeson nightmare reference that is just so spot on and is very self aware.
You can imagine that this was fun to make, though the story of its making I’m sure will be a documentary to be seen soon..
It’s recent opening box office success is quite surprising, but then the timing of the release is good with not much direct competition and it’s February and we want to laugh and smile..
Points to think about.. (Spoilers)
- At the end she does seem to forgive him far too easily.
- His thing is that he’s ugly.. but well.. he isn’t.. not one of us want oh my god.. put the mask back on.
- The baddies not so bad?
- Not the biggest plot
- Female leads.. / evolved.. just felt a bit old school.
The movie stands alone.. but if you have an appreciation for the industry, for X-men, Agents of Shield, Captain America, etc.. then this is a movie you’ll enjoy.
It won’t be too all tastes.
But then that’s ok.
… a week or so on..
Do I want to watch it again.. well not really.. I’m sure.. I’ll catch it on netflix or something in years to come and laugh again, but for now I’m good.. now onto the next installment.
