Trivia

Screenwriter Rhett Reese and director Tim Miller credit James Cameron and David Fincher for helping the movie get made. Both directors read and loved early drafts of the script, and used their long history with 20th Century Fox studios to convince executives to give the movie a go. Fox initially consented to a PG-13 version only, but agreed to an R rating after some budget cuts. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 10 mins) After finding the picture of Wade and Vanessa, Angel Dust mentions that she has seen Vanessa before. However, the two had no previous interaction at this point of the movie, nor did Angel Dust see any photos of her. It's very likely that this is how Ajax knew to find her at the strip club as Angel Dust had seen her working there previously. See more »

Quotes

Deadpool: Kinda lonesome back here.
[wedges himself through the Plexiglas opening between the back seat and the front]

Well, blow me!
24 May 2016 | by munns30See all my reviews

Let me say at the very beginning of this review, I loathe super hero movies. I can not stress that point enough. For me, watching anyone of the countless driveling movies which have been pumped out by studios in the name of entertainment over the past decade is, for me, akin to having teeth pulled. Painful to say the least. My friends however are addicted to every single bombastic franchise, and through sufferance, I've endured countless hours of mind numbing boredom watching yet more Lycra-clad numpties saving the earth from ridiculous threat (there are of course exceptions to the above; 'The Dark Knight', the original 'X-Men)

I was once again convinced that spending an evening with chums watching Deadpool would be an excellent waste of my time. I envisaged 15 minutes of feigned interest, followed by an hour 45 of updating my email and some cheeky online shopping. Well that new Morphy Richards kettle and toaster are still waiting for me to purchase as low and behold, shock of all shocks, this film is bloody marvellous!! Bloody, hold your knickers cause they are about to get blown off, marvellous!

The dialogue is witty, sincere, and delivered by every single actor with a naturalism which seems more like improvised off the cuff genius, than drab scripted nonsense.

The pacing of the movie is excellent. It held my interest through its entirety.

The actions scenes directed with the skill of a more seasoned director.

I was so pleased that for once, I was being forced to watch a movie that treated me like an adult, with adult humour and themes, made for adults. Not for grown children masquerading as adults.

This film is a perfect storm! Just everything is right! I look forward, to my great surprise to any squeals!
