I’ve been waiting impatiently for the past two years for this film to come out and I have to say, it didn’t disappoint! Deadpool has always been one of my favourite Marvel characters, even as a kid I had a pretty sarcastic and dark sense of humour and loved that he did too.
When me and Chris went on our first ever date, we spent almost all of it quoting the first Deadpool film to each other because we were that nervous. Not going to lie, it was a great way to spend a first date and definitely had something to do with him asking for a second one before the first had even finished!
The first thing I’ll say about this film is get ready for an emotional rollercoaster. It’s a lot deeper than the first one; it actually touches on things like depression and suicide, but it does it in such a typical Deadpool way that it gets the message across without feeling out-of-place.
The end credit scenes are the best I’ve ever seen and I honesty had tears in my eyes from laughing so much at them. The whole cinema was roaring with laughter and I honestly don’t think there’s any way a film could top them in the future.
There wasn’t another one right at the end of the film like we expected though. We kept waiting after the ones in the middle of the credits (its Marvel film, you always stay until the end!), but nothing was there.
We were all sat around waiting for a good two or three minutes staring at a blank screen, until one of the cinema staff said that was it and the film was over…typical Deadpool; they know we always stay so they don’t put one right at the end!
It’s also not short of unexpected cameos: two that are blink-and-you’ll-miss-them and one that had the whole cinema screaming out in surprise!
There was one scene that Chris swears he’ll never be able to get out of his head and made him wish he could bleach his brain to remove it. His words there, not mine. Luckily I guessed what was coming and looked away a fraction of a second before it happened and judging by his (and everyone else’s) reaction, I’m so glad I did!
As well as that, it’s full of the typical over the top gore and violence that we’ve come to expect from the first film. I do think that they might have overdone it slightly with the swearing for Russell, but thats the only thing that I can find to complain at, and its a small point at that.
Oh and a few tears actually escaped towards the end of the film, and not from laughing. Yep that’s right, I cried at Deadpool…
Writing this review seemed like a great idea, until I actually started doing it and realised just how hard it is to write about something and keep it spoiler free!
