So who knew that creating a comic book movie and making it exactly like the comic book would result in a 95% like from the fans on Rotten Tomatoes? Ill tell you who, the fans knew! A Deadpool movie was going to be hard to pull off if the film was going to be rated PG-13. The fans begged for the film to be rated R and to make it as accurate as possible. We you see what happens when you listen to the fans.
You will always have those select few who didn’t like the movie no matter how hard you try. Here’s the thing, if you do not read any comic books and have no idea what these comic book movies are about do some research prior to you complaining about how vulgar the film was.
When they selected Ryan Reynolds for Wolverine: Origins to play Wade/Deadpool I had high hopes. He was great in that film too until they “made” him into that Deadpool character. Now fast forward to the release of this new movie and they completely remade Deadpool into the character he was meant to be. He makes every joke wrong and dirty but that is who Deadpool is, he does’nt care.
Now I don’t know about you but I think that Fox did a great job with this movie and who ever had the creative control of this movie needs to be heard more often. If Marvel could go back and put a clause in their contracts stating that if the studio (Fox, Sony) is deemed unfit to produce a successful movie with their characters that the rights of that character will be stripped from the studio and given back to the original creators. Now, wouldn’t that make everyone happy? We everyone except the studios. But, I mean look what happened to the Fantastic 4. This movie was created twice and both times the studio dropped the ball. I say listen to the fans and give us what we want.
I give this move a 9.9/10 ( and only a 9.9 because a perfect movie will never happen).
If you haven’t seen Deadpool yet and you are not easily offended then this is the movie for you.
The next movie all of us geeks will have our eyes on will be Captain America: Civil War where we will see the Avengers being ripped apart by the government and control. What everyone will be watching for is the appearance of Spider-Man. The character Spider-Man is owned by Sony pictures and has done well in the past. Now will get to see our favorite web slinger team up with the rest of the MCU.
