The Exploits and Adventures of a guy who loves Pixar and Marvel on a journey to becoming an Orlando-Floridian filmmaker. You think you know what I can do? Then, you ain't seen nothing yet!

Before this movie, I've only heard of Deadpool through merchandise and his appearances on "Ultimate Spider-Man" and "Hulk vs. Wolverine"...

So when I first heard that there was going to be a Deadpool movie, I felt like I had to see this movie. Yet, I didn't even need to see any of the X-Men movies to prepare for this. And I don't think you need to either...

The way they tell Deadpool's origin story really works well as a film that's much, much, much different from your average superhero movie. That and the humor makes this movie more comedic than "Captain America: Civil War" would ever hope to be in 3 months time. Yeah, apparently the Russo brothers were planning to make 'Civil War' more comedic than 'The Winter Soldier' go figure! But, I digress.

Though the ties to X-Men in here work just as well as Ant-Man's connection to "The Avengers" and it does bring about some of my favorite scenes and lines...

The best example I can give is the comparison between Colossus and NegaSonic Teenage Warhead (whom to my knowledge hasn't been in any "X-Men" movie) and this clip...

Not to mention the references to 'Age of Ultron'.

As for the action sequences, they remind me of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" only more bloodier and gorier.

That and remember in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" when Peter Parker was trying to find out the truth about his parents? Well, this movie has a properly done and better version of that.

As for the characters...

Deadpool is just downright hilarious and possibly the greatest thing Ryan Reynolds has ever done, ever. Weasel played by my all-time favorite actor T.J. Miller has some solid screentime (too bad he wasn't in the climax with DP, maybe yet hopefully in the sequel though). Colossus the muscle reminds me more of Jumbaa from "Lilo & Stitch" but his chemistry with NegaSonic Teenage Warhead and T.J. Miller's chemistry with Ryan Reynolds brings up some of my favorite scenes and lines (aside from Stan Lee's cameo which I won't spoil). Though maybe they outta put NegaSonic Teenage Warhead in an X-Men movie like "X-Men Apocalypse" to develop her character more. As for the rest, there's Francis, the villain whom compared to other Marvel villains doesn't really hold a candle to the villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The villains in "The Incredible Hulk"? Probably but not much like Ultron, Loki, Red Skull, Ronan, Alexander Pierce, Yellowjacket or The Dark Elves. At best, I'd say he's more like a lighter watered down version of Kip Killian from "Iron Man 3" or Darren Cross from "Ant-Man". And there's a whole bunch of other characters we don't learn much about unless we end up doing so in the sequel.

Of all the Marvel movies that are not a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Deadpool is the absolute best, it may not be as good as the likes of The Avengers or Guardians of the Galaxy but with humor that'll keep you laughing, a great story and great characters. My only recommendation is that you don't take kids to see this movie...EVER! There is stuff I am not confined to talk about here. Though, I guess the kids'll probably like "Captain America: Civil War" more since the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been more...PG lately than PG-13 with the number of kids seeing it but trust me, kids'll pick up on swearing and "other stuff" one way or another. Though maybe you could put on "Big Hero 6" for them for good measure.

And now to talk about the previews: Hardcore Henry and The Purge: Election Year or whatever that was, to quote Wreck-It Ralph: Since when did R-Rated movies become so violent and scary?!?, Mike and Dave (or whatever that movie was) looks...interesting. Though I thought it was a sequel to or a remake of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", there's also The Brothers Grimsby which...I dunno man. It's just another "The Dictator" or "Borat" and last but not least, "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" which I think will take the crown as the best superhero war movie of the year. Maybe. We'll see...
