Film: Deadpool (2016)

Deadpool and me don’t go a long way back. In fact I started reading Deadpool on and off was when UK publisher was publishing Wolverine/Deadpool. It was about Civil War time. Since then I read him on and off. I don’t know much about him but this film gave me a good insight about him.

Personally, let me tell you something about me. I’m not a humour fan (Bollywood spoiled it for me, seriously) but crude humour is something I could go with. But still the genre here is action/comedy. I would rather watch some dark serious film rather than a comedy. Having said that, this movie was not that bad. Deadpool is just being Deadpool, this crazy mercenary with a mouth which runs like a motor.

This is an origin story and a love story. This is also an R rated movie but 15 in UK (that was a surprise, I was expecting 18). It had a lot of fucks and motherfuckers and shits in it, had a sex scene and some sexual humour which you really expect in a Deadpool movie.

I liked the movie for its action sequences and fast paced story. It was awesome. I didn’t get all of the one liners and references so I think the humour was a bit advanced level. You couldn’t understand unless you know the reference like one reference which was my favourite is ‘Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret’ and there was blood involved. Of course it is from a novel by Judy Blume (which I used to read embarrassingly) and it dealt with a teenage girl who experienced her first period (and thanks to Stephen King for introducing me to girls periods from Carrie lol).

The music is awesome. The first one is an Indian classic, ‘Mera joota hai japani’ being played in Dopinder’s taxi. The best was DMX’s X Gon Give It To Ya. Took me back to when I was 16 and when we would blast DMX out (remember Exit Wounds?)

The love story element was good and in place. There was a kinky chemistry between Vanessa (Deadpool’s love interest) and Wade Wilson. The particular sex scene was just amazing and the chemistry was just superb and the sequence it was shot in was good. I loved how they started off really crude mentioning the uncle/uncles bit and that decided their relationship. I think that was particularly hot. Thank God, she had her proper hair later on in the movie. I just had Halle Barry hairstyle.

Okay, now we come to the best bit of the movie and the bit which I loved the most. It was the addition of Colossus as an X-Men. Colossus and his trainee Warhead appeared throughout the movie correcting and sometimes helping Deadpool. It actually showed the true meaning of being an X-Men because Deadpool can’t be an X-Men because he kills all the time but Colossus thinks he can be a part of their team. Just having to watch Colossus there was amazing. It gave me a 70s X-Men comics feel where everyone worked together to get things done. Also the battle Colossus vs Angel, how Colossus eventually overcame her was amazing because you could actually see the experience shining out from Colossus. Made me think of all the Danger room training sessions he had been gone through. Truly amazing.

So overall it was a good film. I was expecting more over 18 stuff and all that but they can’t really show serious dark violence with a comedy going on. But it was good. I’ll give it 6.5 out of 10.

But one day what I would like to see is a dark and disturbing over 18s psychological Batman thriller. That’s what I wanna see..
