Deadpool, if described in a serious manner, sounds like any old superhero movie. Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is engaged to marry Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), but after he's diagnosed with cancer in practically all of his body, he's forced to take desperate measures to find a cure. Ajax (Ed Skrein) is the man in charge of curing Wade, but to do so, he tortures the hell out of him, attempting to unlock his mutant genes. He does, and before you know it, Wade is invincible.... and also scarred from head to toe, and because of this, Wade comes after Ajax, hoping to get his revenge in the most brutal way he can. Sounds dramatic, doesn't it? Trust me, this is not a film that's meant to be taken seriously. And it knows that.
Deadpool, as previously mentioned, is not your traditional superhero movie. It's a superhero movie that makes fun of superhero movies, all while enjoying being an actual superhero movie. Ryan Reynolds is absolutely perfect as Deadpool, encompassing his sense of humour and attitude to life. It's clearly not his fault that Origins was as bad as it was, and with no restrictions on content, this film is everything I wanted it to be and more. If there was even the tinniest gripe that people have with these types of movies, it's okay. Deadpool has you covered, and yes, he's going to bag the crap out of it. Usually more than once.
This introduces us to the film's antagonist, Ajax, who's a sadistic mutant with the inability to feel pain. He's a decent villain who proves to be a worthy opponent for Deadpool, creating an actual plot, no matter how simple it really is. The character, however, is, like most Marvel on-screen villains, not at all developed, but I think that's the point. None of the supporting characters in this film are given much screen time and there's even jokes about Ajax just being another random villain. He's underdeveloped, but it's all for good reason, and yet, because of how good this film actually is, I don't mind his lack of development.
To sum up, Deadpool is a fast paced, ultra violent and completely hysterical superhero movie that completely tears apart what makes a superhero movie a superhero movie, teasing every last aspect of it, and yes, it has a post credit scene you're definitely going to want to stick around for.
