If you haven’t already seen the movie “Deadpool,” I highly recommend you do. Having no experience with comic books, and usually scoffing at them, but this movie made me want go out and buy every “Deadpool” comic book out there.

If you haven’t read the comics before, Deadpool, the name of the main character, is tortured by an evil scientist, Ajax, and through this torture comes accelerated healing powers. Deadpool and two of his allies try to hunt down Ajax, whom almost killed Deadpool and has highly disfigured him, leading to his creation of his name and costume.

In the beginning of the movie I was skeptical, as I always am when watching a comedy for the first time. The opening credits begin with Deadpool fighting and another shot of him sitting atop a freeway railing, drawing a childish cartoon of himself while old-school sounding rap played. This struck me as unfunny, which scared me into thinking I’d be stuck watching yet another terrible comedy movie and wasted my money. However, it gets a lot better in a matter of seconds, and the action of the fight is ridiculously graphic and bloody (in a good way).

The movie then begins shifting to flashbacks which are clear and unconfusing, and begin to take on a more serious tone, with the occasional tasteful joke here and there. The seriousness of the flashbacks are portrayed very well, and does not contrast badly with the comedic theme. I can’t say much more on that part because no one likes a spoiler, but I will tell you that the movie makeup and effects are amazing.

This movie has indeed expanded my horizons, and this Christmas I’m probably going to ask for Deadpool comics and posters. Hopefully there will be a sequel to the movie, and if not there is always the comics!

 

Overall Rating from me: 9.5 stars out of 10

Real Rating from IMDb: 8.5 stars out of 1o
