| This is what it looks like when filmmakers take risks
Deadpool is a triumph of artistic vision over studio interference. Little credit should be given to 20th Century Fox, as they had zero faith in the success of a Deadpool movie. To put things into perspective, Ryan Reynolds fought for this film back in 2004 when Blade: Trinity was released. Reynolds and co. went to shoot test footage that was then leaked online by Reynolds because Fox had no intentions to release it to the public. Finally, after years and years of BEGGING to the studio and the overwhelming positive responses of the test footage from the public, Fox didn't even tell Reynolds and co. that the film was greenlit. They had to find out online like the rest of us plebeians. If that sounds bad, Fox even cut their budget by $7 million AT THE LAST MINUTE, which caused the writers to scratch some action sequences that I'm sure would've been great to see.

Deadpool now has the biggest opening weekend in the month of February (surpassing Fifty Shades of Grey), the biggest opening weekend for 20th Century Fox (surpassing all the X-Men films), and the biggest opening weekend for an R rated film EVER (surpassing The Matrix: Reloaded). With all that being said, Deadpool is a hilariously entertaining film that works mainly because of Reynolds himself. His comedic skills pay off gloriously as the titular character, who gives so many quips in one instance that some jokes will be missed. Of course, credit should be given to the writers too (AKA: The Real Heroes Here), and it's impressive that this is Tim Miller's directorial debut. The action sequences and pacing are so good that you'd think this came from a veteran director.

From the ingenious opening credits to the subversive ending, Deadpool constantly upends clichés and tropes you're used to seeing in superhero flicks in the past few years. What's great here is the filmmakers had something weird and perverse and just went with it. Jokes about pedophilia, pegging, and sex run rampant, but it's never really dark, despite the mature subject matter. On top of that, it's also very refreshing to see a pansexual superhero in such a big studio film. It's unheard of these days. Fox and other studios, learn from this success. It's not the fact that a hard R-rated film can do well, it's that Deadpool also happens to be very good, most likely because you, Fox, actually gave the filmmakers the creative freedom to do whatever the hell they wanted.

Trivia

Ryan Reynolds has said that there are over one hundred references throughout the entire film, including easter eggs, pop-culture references, cameos, and direct hits at other Marvel films.


Quotes

Deadpool: Kinda lonesome back here.
Deadpool: Yeah, little help.


Goofs

When Deadpool stops Ajax's motorcycle two clearly large pieces of debris slide almost right up against Ajax's body and yet within a few seconds of Deadpool coming up to him the debris are no where in view.


Crazy Credits

The scene after the credits shows Deadpool in a bathrobe, making fun of you, the viewer, for sticking around for so long. It is an homage to the post-credit scene in Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986). He also talks about the sequel, and says it will feature Cable. Then he makes a few jokes about the casting, and pokes at other movies that usually tease future movies in these scenes. The final "chika-chikaa" he does refers to the song "Oh, Yeah", by Yello, which is featured in that movie.


Alternate Versions

The theatrical and DVD releases were censored by the CBFC in India to secure an A rating (restricted to adults i.e. 18+):

  • 'Asshole', 'motherfucker', 'balls', 'blowjob', 'touching myself', '24 ball gags', 'vagina', 'bitch', 'dick', 'suck a cock', 'testicles' and 'dildo' were all muted.
  • The triple headshot in the highway fight was removed.
  • Nudity, thrusting and innuendos were removed from the sex scene.
  • Deadpool cutting his hand off was removed and replaced with shots of Colossus.
  • A poster showing a woman touching her vagina was removed.
  • Shots of naked women in the strip club were removed.
  • Blood and gore in the final fight was removed.
  • Anti-smoking disclaimers and a health spot were added to the beginning and middle of the film. Static, scrolling messages were also added whenever a character is shown smoking.
The general censorship of violence/sex/swearing totaled 3 minutes and 53 seconds. The anti-smoking additions were voluntary and totaled exactly 2 minutes. The Indian Blu-ray release is uncut (despite also showing an A certificate on the back cover).
