Review by a Noob: Deadpool

I am going to keep this as spoiler free as possible, but shall warn you anyway.

I saw Deadpool last night, and I really did not know all that much about it going in. I was expecting very brash humor and a little vulgarity, based on all of the marketing, but wow, I did not expect what I got.


To be honest, I wasn’t expect that much depth in it (remember, I have no background knowledge of Deadpool). So I was genuinely surprised with the actual story. The fact the movie can go to the darkest of places without it being completely ridiculous with the humor made it a much better film. Doing that also gave so much character development for Ryan Reynolds’ character since the humor comes from a dark place.


The film would break the fourth wall so much, it broke the fourth wall within a fourth wall break. And it make fun of itself and other Marvel franchises, which takes a lot of wit to pull off, which I appreciate.


So without spoiling everything, I really enjoyed Deadpool, coming from the perspective of someone who had no knowledge coming in except for how the film was marketed. It was very funny, Ryan Reynolds did a surprisingly good job being the vigilante, the writing was well done, I could go on and on. Also, Stan Lee’s cameo is the funniest one yet.

Are you going to see Deadpool? Let me know with a comment.

  1. Totally can’t wait to see Deadpool. I think that I’m going to convince my husband to see it either sometime tonight or tomorrow. Deadpool is one of my favorite characters and I really hope that Ryan will be able to do him justice. Though, when I heard that they were doing a Deadpool moving I totally was thinking of Ryan for him. He’s just that snarky character. Glad that you liked it and that a person with no extra knowledge of him will enjoy the film. (The husband doesn’t understand my Marvel fanatics. GASP!)

    Great post and thanks for it being spoiler free. Eee! I’m excited.


  2. I watched Deadpool on Friday and it was so awesome! I also didn’t know much about it before, except for what I got from the advertisement, but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s hilarious, but it still has a story and I loved the fourth wall breaks! I think I’ll go see it again sometime soon. 🙂


  3. I don’t know a lot about Deadpool either, but I loved the previews I saw, and Ryan Reynolds is always a fave of mine. Glad that you liked it, I will definitely go see it soon. 🙂 Visiting from #AuthenticBloggers xo


  4. My knowledge of Deadpool is all from imgur, so I just know him as the one who trolls other superheroes(?). I’m super excited to watch it though! :]


  5. This movie was so perfect! I loved every minute of it. And they did such a good job of combining things from the Deadpool comics into the film. I’m so glad you enjoyed it!


  6. I loved Deadpool. I went on Feb 14 :p Bahahaha. I enjoyed every single bit of it 😉 I already knew the character, so I was worried I would get a diluted version of him on the big screen, and yet I was delighted because: it’s Deadpool!!!


    • Knowing Marvel, we’re going to get sequels. Especially because it was so successful. So since that’s the case, I didn’t feel like it was missing a whole lot. And since I knew very little going in, it was nice to get all the backstory in the first
