Merc with a (potty) mouth shines

Before I saw the “Deadpool” movie I had my own expectations. The most important part of anything with Deadpool in it, better be Deadpool. He shines when he’s given the spotlight. The best way to make a “Deadpool” movie is to have Deadpool run the show. Deadpool became so popular in the first place because of his hilarious character and careless behavior. Deadpool was given a cameo in the “X-men Wolverine” movie, and didn’t do well as a side character. That movie was more focused on well, Wolverine. In the “Deadpool” movie the audience member knows what Deadpool was thinking in almost every scene, which makes the movie much more amusing.

“Deadpool” doesn’t hold back in any way whatsoever. If you’re reading this and don’t know a lot about Deadpool, then here’s a disclaimer for you. If you’re easily offended, then don’t see the movie. And if you dislike profanity, don’t see the movie. About 70 percent of the dialogue is jokes about men’s private parts, 29 percent is fighting and 1 percent is plot development. I don’t really mind that there isn’t much of a plot, because the witty jokes and interesting character make up for any flaws the movie might have. I give this movie a 10 out of 10, which is hard for me given I don’t like to praise things. Everyone has his own opinion and that’s fine. I just felt like the “Deadpool” movie did everything it needed to do and more.

Keep in mind this movie is not for kids. I would stress this more if I could. To be honest it was kind of funny seeing the shocked faces of parents who thought it’d be a good idea to take their kids to a superhero movie. This isn’t any ordinary superhero movie.
