Guy becomes superhero, finds out his girlfriend is in danger, takes care of business.
This is one of the most hyped superhero movies ever- teasers, trailers, word of mouth. In the month leading up to its release, you couldn’t go anywhere on the internets (except maybe lolcat sites) without seeing references, promos or comments. (No, I was wrong…)
And you know what? it was TOTALLY JUSTIFIED hype, for once.This movie was AWESOME.
I finally found time to go see it at the 9:50 show on a weeknight, about six days after it opened, after everyone else I knew had seen it and emailed me about how good it was.
Me: I’m going to the 9:50 show of Deadpool, want to come?
Mr. Otter: What’s it about?
Me: Costumed superhero. Fighting. Witty dialogue. Morena Baccarin.
Mr. Otter: Sure, what the heck. I got nothing else better to do.
Even Mr. Otter loved it. This movie hits all the right notes- over-the-top violence and gore, a great (and much more accurate than usual) car chase, wonderful dialogue and asides from Deadpool, great supporting characters, Serious Honey Morena Baccarin, and a good script that holds together well all the way through.
I can’t praise it highly enough. Go see it. I’m going a second time as soon as I have a spare minute.
