So people, the first film of this year’s superhero film saga has released and it has indeed 

arrived in grand style paying up to the expectations of the fans (excitement overload!!!). It’s 

the first time that Marvel has portrayed the Deadpool character in a full length feature film. Its 

funky trailers as we know, gives us the bottom line of the character and has indeed created a 

huge vibe among us fans that attracts us to the theatres to watch this movie.

Setting apart my excitement, I would now like to review the film. Deadpool, is a trademark 

American, “super-hero” movie that has the “Marvel” stamp all over it. Be it the humour, 

sarcasm, action, dialogues, references, everything is very “Marvel” about it. Now Deadpool, 

has lot of tricks up its sleeve. First, the opening credits has been put up in a different and 

jovial way pointing to the film’s theme. Second, the performance of the cast is good and 

enjoyable. Ryan Reynolds deserves special mention, as he really lived the character on 

screen understanding its depths. His timing and dialogue delivery renders the combined 

sense of seriousness and the humour that the character demands. Third, kudos to the 

writing department in giving a slightly off track script than the traditional superhero film 

scripts. Its high on humour, sarcasm and references but at the same time has the correct 

balance of the straightforward story and the characters in it. Fourth, the director Tim Miller 

has done good job in narrating the film to the audience. Particularly, the flashback wound 

action portion in the beginning. The graphics and CGI department have done a superb job in 

capturing some action scenes making it a visual treat for the fans. Soundtracks by Junkie XL 

perfectly suit the situation giving it the required punch.

The part where the team slightly lose their target is that, however different the script is 

eventually the sameness does exist in some places. One can also feel that in some stages 

there is nothing more than a bunch of heavily sarcastic jokes, references and action 

sequences apart from the stereotypical background story guided by the same emotion as 

always. Some humour could have been avoided and twists could have been introduced. But 

hey, who cares!!!! Its Marvel!!!

On the whole, Dead pool is a different, funny, slightly violent and grisly, but a perfect 

entertainer for those adults who love super-hero comics.

Verdict- Watch it for the red-suit guy and his mesmerising antiques as he steals the show 

completely!!!

My score-3.5/5
