My initial Thoughts…
Going into the movie I was pretty excited because I enjoy a great horror movie; well, as long as it had a great story tied to it. I do not like scary movies that rely on jump scares or music to startle the viewer.
I had read good reviews about the film online and decided it was worth a watch.
I was wrong
Who is Deadpool?
Deadpool is a Marvel Comics character that was originally supposed to be a spoof of a DC character. Initially deadpool was much more serious and gritty, being an assassin ninja and all, but that didn’t last long. Writers were changed and the new image for Wade Wilson (deadpool) was to be a wacky character. He is totally nuts! He is mentally unstable in a very comedic way. He has grown in popularity over the years and now has finally gotten his own movie.
Why a movie now?
This is actually a good thing! After so many years of having super hero movies, this film comes to us in a way that makes fun of all of those movies. He is not a hero but an anti-hero. The movie gives us a completely different view on these kind of movies making fun of stunts and tropes often found in this films.
