A Word of Warning to All Deadpool Fans:
Do NOT see Wolverine. It will piss you right off.
To everyone else: the first two-thirds, then walk away. No malice, no hard feelings, just try to stem your curiousity for thirty seconds and walk calmly out of the cinema. There, that wasn’t so hard, now, was it? And congratulations – you’ve just rewarded yourself with the perfect Wolverine experience.
You won’t be scarred for life if you don’t (though you may be disappointed), but Deadpool fans WILL.
Fortunately for me, I don’t count myself among their ranks, but I do know that Deadpool is known as the ‘Merc with a Mouth.’ With Stan Lee and Richard Donner executive producing, someone on the set must have known that this would be tantamount to a big, sick joke.
I’m really not exaggerating, but to tell you why would be to spoil the ending which I’m imploring you not to see!
It doesn’t make one iota of sense to me. They hired Ryan Reynolds for the part – lithe, muscular physique, and a smart mouth; a perfect choice – and for the first half of the movie, he nailed the part perfectly. The only thing missing was the mask, and my guess was that Ryan Reynolds wanted to show off his beautiful face.
You know what? If you can forgive the masklessness, Deadpool fans, just do the same: go and see the first two thirds of the film and you’ll have an enjoyable Wolverine experience with a splash of Deadpool.
(I know it’s in the trailer, but it’s worth going just to see the helicopter bit.)
Marvel may not be on their A-game, but Wolvie’s still the best at what he does (and what he does best is take down helicopters).
