Sharp-tongued mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) dearly loves a girl of easy virtue Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) and is going to marry her. Idyll comes to an end when the doctors diagnosed with incurable cancer Wade stage. Hoping to stay alive, he agrees to take part in the pilot program, whose creators promise not only to cure Wilson, but also give him superpowers. Wade becomes immortal, but his face is disfigured, and as such he is not going to return to his beloved - wearing a mask and taking the name Deadpool, newly mutant should find someone who turned him into a monster, and get back to its former beauty.
Even if, until recently, you did not hear anything about Deadpool, the creators of the project have done everything to correct this oversight. Promotional campaign project was unprecedented, then positioning it as a romantic comedy Valentine's Day, the advertising billboards with Emoji. During the last months of Deadpool was absolutely impossible to escape, and it worked well, given the fact that Wilson - one of the few comic book characters who are constantly engaged in dialogue with the audience and know that he was watching the hand.
This feature is 100% is used in the film debutant Tim Miller, who nominated for an Oscar in the category of animated short films hoping to make his way to Hollywood. New Deadpool, unlike the silent killer, who appeared in "Wolverine", exactly the what fans want to see him. He is not silent, scabrous jokes and violently destroys his enemies, while managing to regularly remind that the company is very pleased the audience.
Destruction of the proverbial fourth wall - the highlight of "Deadpool", which is kind of like making it closer to the public. Like, this guy talks to you, he is in a board. He listens to the same music as you, watching the same movies and jokes as well. In terms of humor the film, of course, is trying to please everyone and everything: the film adaptation of X-Men Hugh Jackman and Liam Neeson, but at the same time very often are the words not of the intellectual kind, which would have done honor incorrigible comedy. And it is impossible to establish even a delicate balance - the balance inevitably leans toward where laughing at everything below the waist. Does this disadvantage? We make a discount on the specifics of the main character - after all in his head is not all right. And, as practice shows, after all, much easier to attract a mass audience vulgar joke beyond foul, than trying to humor subtly and intelligently.
If it is possible to argue about the comedic element - it eventually turns all the same for everybody - in visual terms the "Deadpool" is not a problem. The opening action scene so ingeniously made that raises the bar very high - reach for it later turns out difficult, but it is rather a problem of the script, which does not offer the protagonist really serious trials. And with ordinary problems in the face of armed miscreants Deadpool copes easily and more effectively than - good studio agreed to an adult rating, which allows you to, do not hesitate to dismember the body and sprinkle the blood on all sides.
Do not wait on "Deadpool" swirling drama - the story is simple and commonplace. And it is really a little heroic, but a lot of romance, as the main engine of the plot - the desire to look good men and women like her. Primitivism with a touch of nostalgia, which is fun to play on the contrast with the thoughtful modern movies about superheroes, where questions are solved much more global. Deadpool other, and this can not be good or bad - just so there.
