Marvel comic’s unconventional superhero hits our big screen just before Valentines day, a life saver if you forgot that special day ! So style it out and take your woman to the cinema if you want to kill two birds with one stone! The first is that you can take your ‘bird’ or loved one to see a movie that is a chick flick which has all the ingredients of a love story and the second is that you get see a dick flick that has all the ingredients of an action packed adventure as you would expect from a Marvel Comic movie.
The ladies will love this cheesy , tongue in cheek humor with a dash of ahh in it and the male counterparts will be thankful that Deadpool was macho enough to go with your bae and enjoy not only the movie but the fantastic soundtrack .
Ryan Reynolds who plays Wade/Deadpool brings this superhero to life with dignity. In a dead end job as a Mercenary, Wade falls in love with Morena Baccarin who plays Vanessa, dreaming of a better life with her, until he is diagnosed with cancer. He decides to leave her to give her the opportunity to live a better life without him and takes the help of Ed Skrein who plays Ajax to cure his cancer and giving him super powers ,as he was a dead man walking so he had nothing to loose.
I must say for an ‘overpaid’ director (you have to see the opening credits ) this movie is worth every barrel of laughter. This anti superhero will have you laughing crying and squeegeeing all at the same time. There are some scenes that are bloody and pretty gruesome but quickly followed by a snare remark to distract you from what you have just witnessed. Make sure you sit through the credits as the humor does not end until the very end.
I loved the soundtrack for Deadpool from Junkie XL (“Mad Max: Fury Road”) has scored the movie to DMX’s “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” tracks from Salt-N-Pepa to Neil Sedaka, and Wham! . Who said romance is dead!
