| Well, blow me!
Let me say at the very beginning of this review, I loathe super hero movies. I can not stress that point enough. For me, watching anyone of the countless driveling movies which have been pumped out by studios in the name of entertainment over the past decade is, for me, akin to having teeth pulled. Painful to say the least. My friends however are addicted to every single bombastic franchise, and through sufferance, I've endured countless hours of mind numbing boredom watching yet more Lycra-clad numpties saving the earth from ridiculous threat (there are of course exceptions to the above; 'The Dark Knight', the original 'X-Men)

I was once again convinced that spending an evening with chums watching Deadpool would be an excellent waste of my time. I envisaged 15 minutes of feigned interest, followed by an hour 45 of updating my email and some cheeky online shopping. Well that new Morphy Richards kettle and toaster are still waiting for me to purchase as low and behold, shock of all shocks, this film is bloody marvellous!! Bloody, hold your knickers cause they are about to get blown off, marvellous!

The dialogue is witty, sincere, and delivered by every single actor with a naturalism which seems more like improvised off the cuff genius, than drab scripted nonsense.

The pacing of the movie is excellent. It held my interest through its entirety.

The actions scenes directed with the skill of a more seasoned director.

I was so pleased that for once, I was being forced to watch a movie that treated me like an adult, with adult humour and themes, made for adults. Not for grown children masquerading as adults.

This film is a perfect storm! Just everything is right! I look forward, to my great surprise to any squeals!

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 head-shot 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 visual cuts were replaced with zoomed in versions of the same sequences and hence there is no change in the duration of the movie except for an anti-smoking PSA added voluntary that added exactly 2 minutes to the movie, changing the total duration to a 110 minutes and 47 seconds, as per the CBFC's list of edits. The Indian Blu-ray release is uncut (despite also showing an A certificate on the back cover).
