Benz Eye View: Deadpool

After disposing a certain someone that just came out of nowhere…

What?  I was helping…

Yeah, sure.  You shoved me into a trash can!

Yeah, and you shown me your love by cutting off my head.  

That’s not love!  That’s payback!  How’s that related to love?  

What do you think, @#$%^&*?  Tomorrow’s Valentine’s Day.  

…Anyway, here is the actual review.

Deadpool Size Matters
Deadpool

Pros:

1.) For those who are nervous to watch this movie due to how they messed him up in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, have no fear because they got Deadpool completely right.  Ryan Reynolds does a fantastic job playing the Merc with a Mouth, but also does well when he needs to be an emotional character when certain moments are needed.

See?  Just as I said in MY review.  

2.) Since this is about Deadpool, the comedy is hilarious, clever, and awesome.  There are plenty of fourth-wall breaking jokes that reference other movies, actors, characters, X-Men, and even the Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  Be warned that the jokes are rude and crude, and Deadpool does not hold back on that.

And shouldn’t I be?  By the way, why are you censoring my swearing?  

I prefer not to have any.  I even managed to censor your swearing from your review.  

Huh.  That explains it.  

3.) The action scenes are incredible and funny, if not violent.  Although I wish the cinematography is a bit better, they can go from averagely to ridiculously violent to the point that no normal human being can survive that, but this is Deadpool I am talking about here.

See what I mean?  You said everything that I said what is awesome about my movie (with different words).  You don’t need to finish this review.  Just read mine.  

I am not done.  I am starting the cons.  

Oh, come on.  What’s wrong with my movie?  

Well, for starters…

 

Cons:

1.) The villain is forgettable.  All he is a guy who wants to sell mutants for money and power, because…he is evil.  Nothing much to add here.

Except he is played by a British guy.  

That is kind of offensive, Deadpool.  

Oh, come on.  You of all people should know that any British film actor plays a bad guy.

Like this guy!
Loki
Or this guy!
Kahn (Star Trek)
Ooh!  How about this one!

I get it…

Also, most of the side characters are not interesting except for the best friend, Weasel and the love interest, Vanessa.  The two actually have pretty good romantic chemistry.

Oh, yeah.  We certainly do.  Which one by the way?  Because I prefer to put my chemistry right in-

Moving on!  

2.) The plot is pretty average.  One man becomes a superhero.  He (technically) does super heroics, or in this case, goes on a revenge spree.  The woman he loves is in trouble.  Superhero goes to save her.  Nothing new here.

So what?  What do you prefer to watch, Spider-Man?  

Hey, at least his films are better than yours in terms of story.  

…That really hurts, man.  

3.) The first half of the movie consists of flashbacks that show Deadpool/Wade Wilson’s origins.  While it does provide some interesting backstory, it slows the movie down.  I prefer to see more of Deadpool’s antics rather than his somewhat bland backstory.

Aah.  You do like me.  And I actually kind of agree to that, you can thank Ryan Reynolds for that.  

It is not his fault, Deadpool.  

Yes, it is.  

Oh, fine.  Who do you want to play you?  

Easy…

…Go on.  

…Let’s just move on.  

Wait!  IT’S-

 

Overall:

Based on a Marvel Anti-Hero, Deadpool is a big improvement over his portrayal in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but does that make it a great movie?  For the most part, this ends up being an average superhero movie.  There is nothing that really stands out (with one huge exception).  You have a superhero (or anti-hero) who gets his powers, he seeks revenge, has to save his woman, and many other superhero cliches.  The only thing that saves this movie from being dull of its cliches is Deadpool himself.  He is hilarious, but messed up.  He can fight, but does not hold back how he kills his enemies.  If you want a funny, fourth-wall breaking, crude, super anti-hero who acknowledges even the cons that I mentioned here (for better or worse in my case), this is for any of the newcomers and fans of the character.  Otherwise, watch any other superhero movies like Spider-Man.

7/10

7/10?  It should be 10/10.  Come on!  

Sorry, Deadpool.  That is my review, and I think your movie is all right.  

Figures a “reviewer” like YOU would think so.  You probably don’t like any superhero media.  

Spider-Man and Batman are two of my favorite comic-book superheroes.  Not to mention I like many superhero films: Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  I can probably name a few more.  

Oh, please.  None of the movies and characters have any of my charms.  

Such as?  

My chimichangas.  

GET OUT OF HERE!  

Deadpool vs. Captain America
OOF!  My Chimichangas!

Oh…Ow…Well…Fine, then!  Forget your little dumb blogging review website.  I have better places to go to like…dealing with a certain other self that almost ruined my career.  Shameless plug-in video!  

Huh.  I thought I beheaded him earlier.  Oh well.  The X-Men Cinematic Universe has timeline problems anyway.
