First I must confess that I am sanctified and well versed in the gospel of Marvel. I grew up reading comics and since the earliest I can remember, I have not gone an entire year without reading some comic from some publisher. So I was very much anticipant of this film, patiently awaiting it with high hopes.
Tonight, after a year of eager impetuousness I finally got to watch. And I was only disappointed with one thing regarding the film, the length. Personally, I don’t mind a lengthy comic-based film at all. In fact, I would prefer a two hour plus film when it comes to these beloved characters. This film was roughly around ninety minutes, my only minuscule disappointment.
Now on to the favorable aspects of the film:
1. Brilliant humor: The jokes were sharp and the delivery was skillful.
2. Exciting action: The main reason some kids should definitely be taken to see it, top notch action.
3. Close and 3/4 a cigar source material accuracy: The writers were true enough to the source material, and the actors and filmmakers understood the character and tone of the comics. They got it right.
4. Visual satisfactory: I had a dream a few weeks ago, and in it I went to see the film and Wade was hacking and slashing limbs with his Katanas. This was a time warped vision, because that’s exactly what was storyboarded. In fact, it could’ve been a bit more gore. Like Blade one style.
As a fan of the character, I highly recommend this film. 9/10 (Minus one point only for duration)
