|I’m very proud of myself for not misspelling any of those names…|
YouTube let me use all your videos dammit.
I don’t need Wikipedia for this one, it’s not too complicated…maybe…
The film follows Wade Wilson (Reynolds), a former Special Forces turned mercenary, falls in love with a…uh…call girl(?) named Vanessa. (Baccarian) After one of the best budding romance montages in film history, (SUCK IT The Notebook) Wilson is diagnosed with multiple forms of cancer. In an attempt to save himself and spare Vanessa the humiliation, Wade is recruited by a covert organization with the promise of becoming a superhero. And this is getting wordy so I’ll wrap it up…it’s not really a superhero organization, Ajax/Francis (Skrein) tortures Wade and turns him into a…well…
And so Wade becomes Deadpool and starts to murder people to find Francis. It’s slightly more complicated than that but Millennials have short attention spans so ON TO THE JOKES!
To summarize the humor in this movie, don’t take your mom…or kids if you’re old and have given up on life already. Seriously, it may be a superhero movie, but it has an R rating for a reason.
It’s filled with gratuitous violence, an impressively creative sex sequence, and some language that wouldn’t be appropriate for minors.
So if you’re looking for a break from the usual run of the mill superhero movies that seem to be multiplying like rabbits in an abandon Viagra factory, than look no further.
But seriously, don’t watch this with your mom…it’ll be awkward for that one scene and every terrible joke you laugh at will only make her judge you more…trust me.
