Highly over-praised. Not a complete trash, but barely okay.
"Deadpool" is a very fun movie. After the characterization of Deadpool I saw in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", I never wanted a Deadpool movie. I got one. It didn't disappoint. But at the same time I feel it is one of the most over-praised movies of all times. I don't hate this movie at all, but at the same time, I don't like it either. The majority of it is entertaining. What works? First and foremost, the character - Deadpool. This hilarious and goofy badass merc with a mouth is something I really liked. His jokes, punchlines and fourthwall breaking humor lands perfectly. Secondly, the non linear storytelling. If this movie had a linear storytelling, it wouldn't have been half as entertaining as it is. Thirdly, the hilarious character moments and slapstick comedy. The character interaction between Deadpool and some of the "X-Men", and Francis, and Dopinder, and Negasonic are funny and entertaining - sometimes involving some slapsticky things which are grose and graphic but solely due to Deadpool's mutation, makes it funny. The fourth wall break - take this element out, the movie is totally incomplete. Action scenes - pretty good, especially the first one. But that's all I liked about it. What bothered? A lot of things. It takes too much of liberty, due to the fourth wall breaking elements it has. It uses a number of movie clichés of the superhero genre and mock them by breaking the fourth wall. That surely is hilarious, but doesn't change the fact that the movie had a lazy writing. Also the plot is a typical superhero origins stuff, a little more romantic, though. None of the plotlines were exciting or intriguing. It felt good just because of the way the character Deadpool was written. Else, every one of them were simply clichéd materials. It felt as if we had to accept whatever was shoved down our throats and we had all the fourth wall breaks to cover it up. That felt like an overconfidence in the part of the makers. Also, one particular scene involving Deadpool and the villain feels too stretched. If it wasn't there, we won't have a third act. Why are people intentionally looking over these? I am completely surprised to see a bunch of people saying this is the greatest superhero film ever. It isn't bad, and doesn't suck. That's all. I can name a whole lot of superhero movies much better than this - "The Dark Knight" (2008), "Spider-Man" (2002), " Spider-Man 2" (2004), "Logan" (2017), "Avengers: Infinity War" (2018), "Deadpool 2" (2018), "Captain America: Civil War" (2016), "X-Men: First Class" (2011), "X-Men: Days of Future Past" (2014), "X-Men" (2000), "Batman Begins" (2005), "The Dark Knight Rises" (2012), "Unbreakable" (2000), "The Avengers" (2012), "Wonder Woman" (2017), "X2: X-Men United" (2003), "Thor: Ragnarok" (2017), etc. So, I absolutely don't feel that it being called "the greatest superhero film" is apt. In the end, it is essential to say that Ryan Reynolds is absolutely great as Wade Wilson/Deadpool. No one should replace him as Deadpool.
