The opening credits are placeholders for what was in the script, since Director Tim Miller (who asked Blur Studio's Layout Supervisor Franck Balson to remove his quickly) and Ryan Reynolds were the only ones. "As written by Deadpool"; "Some douchebag's film, Starring God's perfect idiot (referring to Ryan. Accompanied by an Easter Egg of Ryan's People Magazine cover as Sexiest Man Alive.); "A hot chick"; "A British villain"; "The comic relief"; "A moody teen"; "A CGI character"; "A gratuitous cameo"; "Produced by asshats"; "Written by the real heroes here"; "Directed by an overpaid tool". There are Easter Eggs as well: The card in the wallet of Ryan in a green suit, a blurry Killebrew being on the phone, the thug with the lighter was originally a filmed joke in reference to Colin Farrell in Daredevil (2003), "Rob L." on the coffee cup is Rob Liefeld, the little sex key-chain, the Orange Number 5 card, and the Hello Kitty.

In the company of nonsense
A sharp-tongued mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) loves the girl of easy virtue Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) and is going to marry her. Idylls come to an end when doctors diagnose Wade's incurable stage of cancer. In the hope of remaining alive, he agrees to participate in an experimental program, whose creators promise not only to cure Wilson, but also to endow him with superpowers. Wade becomes immortal, but his face is disfigured, and in this form he is not going to return to his beloved - wearing a mask and taking the name Deadpool, the new mutant must find the one who turned it into a monster and make it return its former beauty.
Even if until recently you have not heard anything about Deadpool, the creators of the project about the talkative "non-perperable" have done everything to correct this oversight. The promo campaign of the project was unprecedented, then positioning it as a romantic comedy for Valentine's Day, then advertising billboards with emoji. Over the past months, it has been decidedly impossible to get away from Deadpool, and it worked perfectly, given that Wilson is one of the few comic book heroes who constantly interacts with the audience and knows that they are being watched by the parties.
This chip is 100% used in the debutant Tim Miller's film, which the Oscar nominee in the category of animated shorts hopes to punch his way to Hollywood. The new Deadpool, unlike the silent assassin who appeared in Wolverine, is exactly what his fans wanted to see. He does not stop, he jokes with a joke and severely annihilates his enemies, while being able to regularly remind him that he is very pleased with the company of spectators.
Destruction of the notorious fourth wall is the highlight of "Deadpool", which seems to make it closer to the public. Like, this guy is talking to you, he's in the board. He listens to the same music as you, watches the same films and jokes the same way. In terms of humor, the film, of course, tries to please everyone and everything: Stebut film adaptation of the X-Men, Hugh Jackman and Liam Neeson, but at the same time, very often Hochma is not of the most intellectual kind, which would have done the honor of writing a sorting comedy. And between the gags of different categories it is not possible to establish even a shaky balance - the scales bow inexorably to the side where they laugh at everything below the belt. Is it less than that? Let's make a discount on the specifics of the main character - after all, he does not have everything in order. And, as practice shows, all the same it is much easier to attract a mass audience with a vulgar joke beyond the foul, rather than trying to humor subtly and intellectually.
If you can argue about the comic component - it eventually turns out all the same to an amateur - then visually "Deadpool" problems do not arise. The introductory action-scene is so ingenious that it raises the bar very high - it's hard to reach it later, but it's rather a script problem that does not offer the protagonist really serious trials. And with ordinary problems in the face of armed scoundrels (and even the main "boss"), Deadpool copes easily and more than spectacularly - the benefit of the studio has agreed to an adult rating, which allows, without hesitation, to dismember bodies and splash blood in all directions.
Do not expect from the "Deadpool" swirling drama - this story is simple and trivial. And in it there is really little heroic, but a lot of romance, because the main engine of the plot is the desire of a man to look good and like his woman. Primitivism with a touch of nostalgia, which plays great in contrast to the profound modern films about superheroes, where questions of a far more global character are being solved. Deadpool is different, and it can not be bad or good - it's just that way.
