Director Tim Miller’s feature debut Deadpool is incredible fun. The film should prove a breath of fresh air for those looking for a different type of comic book hero.
Wade Wilson is a former Special Forces operative. Getting by as a mercenary for hire, Wade is enjoying life until something unexpected comes along. When rogue experimental treatment gives him special powers, he adopts the alter ego Deadpool…
From its earliest marketing, the makers of Deadpool promised viewers a different type of comic book movie. And it is clear that Tim Miller’s film delivers on this front. Deadpool is a film that certainly is not suitable for children. The film is brash, sweary and violent. It is also a lot of fun.
The first thing that is clear from the opening credits is Deadpool‘s self-deprecating nature. This tone continues throughout the duration of the film. The fourth wall is also broken often and early, with the screenwriters even referencing the fact that they are doing so. Comedy is indispensable to the film; it simply would not have worked without the constant humour. Wade’s wisecracking is frequently amusing. The film stays within the Marvel universe in terms of its referencing of other characters, yet this often breaks the fourth wall too.
The narrative of Deadpool is fairly simple. The origins story of the title character is shown via a lengthy flashback. At its heart, the film is a revenge story with a romantic strand running through it. As such there is not much that is particularly original about the film’s narrative. It is the tone and style which carries the narrative through.
Action in the film is visceral. Miller does not shy away from depicting gore. This is always done with humour, negating some of the more brutally graphic sequences. Ryan Reynolds appears to be having a lot of fun in the role. Morena Baccarin has good chemistry with Reynolds.
Deadpool is a very amusing film that should satisfy those who have been anticipating its arrival.
Plenty in this week’s preview of upcoming films, including the Nine Lives trailer, a Deadpool clip, Zoolander 2 and more…
Nine Lives Trailer
Talking animal film alert! A cat is at the centre of the film in the Nine Lives trailer. The film tells the story of a billionaire businessman who finds himself trapped in the body of the family cat. Starring Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner and Christopher Walken, Nine Lives is set for release later this year.
What is clear from the fantastic marketing for the film is that Deadpool is not for children. This clip falls in line with what has been revealed. Deadpool looks as if it will be a heady mix of comedy and action. Starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, and Gina Careno, Deadpool hits UK screens on 10th February 2016.
Zoolander 2 Commercial
Here is a spoof commercial for Zoolander 2. The clip offers us a insight into Kristen Wiig’s character Alexanya Atoz. The film certainly continues the theme of parodying the fashion industry. Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell reprise their roles in Zoolander 2, which opens in UK cinemas on 12th February 2016.
The Secret Life of Pets Poster and Trailer
Here is a poster for one of the most anticipated films of the summer (in my eyes at least). The Secret Life of Pets answers one of lives quintessential questions; what do pets do whilst their humans are at work? With the voices of Louis C.K., Kevin Hart and Eric Stonestreet, The Secret Life of Pets will be released on 24th June 2016.
Disorder focuses on a secret service soldier who takes a private job protecting a wealthy family. Matthias Schoenaerts stars as the soldier, and Diane Kruger as the wife of the wealthy businessman.
