This film didn't need a big budget (it'd be nice if it did) but all it needed was heart. And that's exactly what Ryan reynolds delivered. Also he delivered a shit ton of humor. But Don't be that bitch mother with a short haircut and basic sunglasses and say this movie had sullied your child innocence. This movie wasn't made for you. Just go watch God's not dead 2 if you're that bitch mother. This film is only made for superhero fans and guys trying to watch a romance-action film and get laid.
Deadpool will change your life. That is simply an understatement. This is the greatest movie of this past decade. At least. Period. It is factually the greatest R-Rated movie of all time. A lot of directors are trying to take cues from this movie now but they're seeing the wrong things. This movie was not successful because of the swearing or inappropriate humor. It was so great and absolutely amazing because it remained true to the source material. A lot of people in Hollywood wanna change stuff and make it their own. And I can respect that, but sadly in the end they usually end up ruining it by changing too much. Not to say the movie didn't change anything. It did change a few small details that I've noticed since going back and reading the comics religiously. But in my honest opinion I believe they actually improved upon what they changed while still keeping the general character and their attitude the same. It changed the perfect amount while still staying true to the comic roots. And Ryan Reynolds was great as Deadpool. I think Deadpool is actually so meta he told the director who to cast where. Read Deadpool & Cable series from 2004. Deadpool himself predicted Reynolds!

Cheap CGI, Random X-men actors to complete an already super weak story. Even though deadpool likes to break the "4th wall" his character, he isn't supposed to be horribly chaotic & neurotic. Deadpool, while crazy, isn't completely random and with some sense of a moral code. The beginning of the movie hints at this moral code and then just turns into a lame vengeance flick after he is experimented on for some "evil" purposes. I'm not a deadpool hater but I expected a much better movie and story than yet another vengeance film.
