Deadpool 2016

Wade Wilson, a former US Special Forces operative turned mercenary who hates being called hero is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopting the alter ego Deadpool.

Wade Wilson became ill of cancer and was encouraged by a recruiter for a secret organization that promised him to that his cancer will be cured. He left his fiancée for the secret organization. The secret organization turned him into science project that made his body into extraordinary but his appearance became displeasing. Deadpool, Wade’s superhero name, hunts down Ajax and his men.

Deadpool movie is undeniably a good movie for adults since this is an R-rated film. A non-conforming superhero film, Deadpool is for adults with superhero phantasm. The film about revenge instead of being a superhero or saving humanity, a confusing story if shown to kids.

Storytelling Deadpool is exceptional, again it is not typical movie, compared to the current popular superhero franchises. The character is the most talkative superhero so far and he also do the narration of the story which is quite unique.

The opening of the film and some scenes depict some clichés of all other superhero film that create a good laugh for the moviegoers.

Fighting actions were impressive but a bit unsatisfying for the reason that this film is the first movie of the franchise. The movie needs to introduce Deadpool first. We can expect more fighting and chasing scenes in the next movie.
