Deadpool rocks

Carl Snyder, Entertainment Assistant

Fox released Deadpool Feb. 12 and yielded very good results.     Deadpool did not disappoint in the slightest. It was everything that it was advertised — violent and offensive with all-around explicit material that audiences probably shouldn’t laugh at.
  Despite this (or because of it), Ryan Reynolds, who portrayed Deadpool, did a wonderful job, proving  himself as an A-list celebrity once again. His performance was good enough to overshadow his last attempt at playing Deadpool, which was in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). That movie was a disaster and his role in it almost ended his acting career.
  For that reason there was some doubt coming into this movie, but the cast and crew of Deadpool crushed all of the doubt.  Some evidence to show this lies in the fact that they’re already in the process of making the sequel, scheduled to be released in 2017.
  The comedy in this film was very raunchy and offensive, but they pulled this off quite well. Some in the humor is very left-field, and it was some of the funniest humor in this film.
  This movie was not perfect, however. Some of the supporting actors and actresses were weak in their performances. One could tell that they were only reciting lines, instead of saying the lines in character. This was not very apparent, though, and the majority of the acting was spot-on.
  The movie made the most of its $58 million budget, although some more characters would’ve enhanced the film. The writers included a line that made fun at this situation, and went over well. However, that joke does not excuse the lack of characters.
  In the end, this movie was hilarious, the writing was excellent, the acting was mostly good, and the action sequences were very well-executed. And because of this Deadpool receives an 8.9 out of 10.
