Main jist of the plot:
Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is a former Special Forces operative who now works as a mercenary. His world comes crashing down when evil scientist Ajax (Ed Skrein) tortures, disfigures and transforms him into Deadpool. The rogue experiment leaves Deadpool with accelerated healing powers and a twisted sense of humor. With help from mutant allies Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Deadpool uses his new skills to hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
What was good about it:
What was good about it? Oh my... everything... I know I said that I would biased towards MARVEL films, but I've honestly been waiting for the Deadpool movie since before he looked like this:
Now I've been telling my dad that Deadpool will happen properly, and X-MEN Origins Wolverine didn't help me whatsoever, but this year, something beautiful happened.
Deadpool didn't just happen, it had an origin story, the whole story.
And we started here, and then made it to here
Needless to say, I was very happy.
Now I wasn't kidding when I say that I was happy with everything in the movie, it had the best version of Colossus that I have ever seen too.
The movie did not waste anytime with "X-men bull", not saying that the other film's were bull, but what I am saying is that we got a perfect 108minutes of Deadpool awesomeness.
I loved the way Deadpool broke the fourth wall, for example when Colossus said that Deadpool had to see the professor and Deadpool just responded with "Stewart or McAvoy", I was dying after that. Or at another point when Deadpool made a stab at Fox for not being able to afford more X-Men.
Allow me to just revisit that Colossus comment, he really was at the best looking I've ever seen him >>>
What wasn't so good about it:
I'm not going to lie, the only thing that didn't allow this film to be absolutely gorgeous was budget. Deadpool even made a little bit of a joke about that when he turned up to the X-Mansion. There were bigger plans for the film, but unfortunately couldn't fit into the lack of money at the film's disposal.
What I would have liked to see:
I would have liked to see Wolverine in the film, specifically him because their chemistry is something to behold. It is such a funny and diverse relationship that would have been nice and enjoyable to have been able to see on the silver screen.
Connection to a wider universe:
The only connection was the X-mansion and the Jet to be honest. Colossus was a familiar face, but he was an all new, All-CGI character.
"Stewart or Mcavoy"
Was another funny one that let us know that the films shared a connection, but other than that, it almost felt as if the film was too broke to be a part of its wider universe. but you tell me, what X-Film do you reckon was the best;
