Trivia

In the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), Deadpool doesn't wear his trademark red costume but appeared as a disfigured bald man that is naked above the waist with his mouth sewn shut. He also possesses two retractable katanas in both forearms. As a reference to this prior film, there is a scene that briefly features this modified Deadpool as an action figure. See more »

Goofs

When Deadpool is starved of oxygen, then causes an explosion, it is implied that the excess of oxygen, coupled with a heat source (match), causes the chain reaction which blows up the oxygen tanks. However, for a chain reaction to occur, fuel is also needed. Combustion is an oxidation of fuel. The only fuel present which is hot enough is the match. The hoses/ pipes and the tanks would not be flammable. See more »

a much needed breath of fresh air in a stale genre
26 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

At first glance, Deadpool seems like a typical superhero movie due to it being made by Marvel. But once those hilarious intro credits show up, you know you are in for one of the most creative films in recent years.

The first thing that is unique about this film is the characters. In typical superhero films the characters are stiff and super serious, in Deadpool the characters are filled with personality and can range from the serious Francis to the silly Deadpool giving this a parody like feel, in a good way.

Also what is different is that this is a story of revenge rather then saving the city/world/universe that is seen in every single superhero film. Also the tone of film is more comic then dark thanks to the fantastic humor of all kinds from slapstick to dirty to just plain silly, this film just does not stop the laughs (I laughed 20- 30 times in my SECOND watch).

As for being an origin story, I can say that the backstory placements were well done, equally as funny, and explains only what is important in understanding the story. Final rating 10/10 this is a great nominee for movie of the year and one of the greatest comedies ever made
