If you find the man sexy, then Deadpool is the movie for you because his butt is everywhere. And one scene of either his or his stuntman's penis shadow.
First, let me go ahead and eat crow about the Hard R rating. I thought it'd be distracting and ultimately take away from the movie, and I was wrong. They worked it in quite well. I don't think the swearing made the movie better, but at least the violence was so over the top that it worked. The Hard R even made the Stan Lee scene more hilarious. And that's what the movie really boils down to: Hilarity. If you're at all familiar with the character, you already know the jokes were going to be juvenile. Dick jokes, butt jokes, fart jokes, they're all in there. I mean even the start and end credits were getting laughs. Even the sex scene gets progressively sillier as it goes on. Lots of metajokes and fourth-wall breaking throughout the movie, as one would expect as well. Tons of Easter Eggs. Tons. Some painfully obvious and some subtle. If that's your thing you really have to be paying attention. Even I missed a couple until later when it just clicked.
Weirdly enough, I'd say the movie was a really violent love story. Kind of a really really really violent Princess Bride if I were stretching for describing it ... which I am. I don't know if I'd outright call it a date movie, but it's definitely noticeable.
Colossus was the movie's MVP though. As great as Reynolds was, the big steel boy scout stole the movie for me. You almost feel sorry for the guy as he tries to live up to being a superhero and then there's Deadpool undermining his every effort. Pretty much every scene with him is a riot. I think they could have done more with Negasonic and Blind Al but there was only so much movie.
For what it's worth, it was more Joe Kelly's manic Deadpool than Daniel Way's lolrandumb Deadpool. Thankfully only one mention of a chimichanga. I was kind of worried about that. My only real complaint was the ending. Just didn't feel "Deadpool" to me. I could have also done without the new catchphrase.
Anyway, if you actually liked the character before, this movie does him justice. And if you're looking for a funny movie and have the personality of a preteen, go for it. Well worth your money. The only people that might not like it are people that don't like the character to begin with or people with rods shoved up their asses ... which is another scene in this movie. I'd give the movie a 9/10, simply because I didn't like the ending. I'd probably see the movie again in the theater if it weren't for the eleventy-million movies coming out this year.
Apparently preteen is censored ...
