SH S3E04: Top 20 X-Men

Deadpool – A Spoiler-Free Review

If you hadn’t noticed, a little movie called Deadpool destroyed box office records this weekend. In three days it made back its budget three fold. For a few days, it held 100% Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s received good review after good review from a variety of sources. This one, is no different.

Deadpool renewed my faith in Deadpool. Somewhere in the 2000’s, he became my least favorite character. He was the mascot for all the comic book fans I hated. He was overexposed and overrated, which made the realization of his movie a very apprehensive undertaking for me as a fan.

I’m a Marvel fan. I want the movies to do well. It does no good when they bomb. Even though I went into Deadpool utterly nervous for the mess that could unfold, I was very quickly set as ease.

Deadpool

Deadpool is a labor of love. Every minute on screen was hewn from the hard work of the director, Tom Miller, or Deadpool champion, Ryan Reynolds. He especially has done everything in his power for the last 11 years to get this movie made in the absolute best version possible. And it shows. For the first time since I saw Reynolds in The Nines, I could see his true acting talent come through. He’s such a talented actor that he has a natural charisma to coast through comedies, where the line between Reynolds and character is blurred. That doesn’t happen here. Reynolds isn’t rehashing Van Wilder; he’s Wade Deadpool Wilson inside and out. He fulfills every aspect of the character: the quirks, the tragedies, the love, the skills. He does it all. And that’s what we needed in a Deadpool movie just for it to be enjoyable, let alone, good.

Deadpool - Wade and Vanessa

The best part of the film is the existence of it. I know that’s such a weird thing to say, but it’s true. It didn’t worry about diversified casting, passing the Bechtel test, or what awards it could qualify for this upcoming season. They didn’t care what characters they included, whether or not they were locked up in Marvel contract bull, or which powers they could CGI in. They just made a good comic book movie. And they did so unapologetically.

Deadpool - Negasonic Teenage Warhead Brianna Hildebrand

Its existence also proved that rated R comic book films are wanted, if not needed. Certain characters of notoriety warrant being done correctly. Sometimes that means admitting the focus is on adult characters and continuing despite a sacrifice in the merchandise pull from the kids demographic. It proved women don’t need a romance angle to see comic book films and comic book films can have a romance angle that helps the story without feeling forced. It proved good things come all year round and we don’t have to wait until summer for some good films.

Please, don’t take my word for it. Go see the movie for yourself. Take a date. Grab some tacos. Watch some much needed vulgarity and violence. You won’t regret it.

The Grid Rating Saucer 5\5
