My buddy got one of those unfinished copies that's been flying around lately, the CG wasn't finished and it was missing some effects, but apart from that it was fucking incredible. I'm definatly going to see the finished version, I recommend everyone do the same.

Does Deadpool ever put on his correct costume? From what I've seen, they've completely fucked him up...

I thought he was horribly disfigured; not Van Wilder with swords.

He's unscarred for part of the movie, and scarred later, I think.

Ah, ORIGINS and shit. I get it. He used to be Van Wilder, then he becomes Deadpool. Now I get it.

If you've read a Deadpool comic, you can tell Ryan Reynolds was the right guy to play him. I had him picked out to play Deadpool years ago in a movie I never actually wrote...

I agree. He's the perfect wise-ass for the role. I'm glad it didn't go to some unfunny fuck.

Yep. But in the comics, he starts out scarred. Not to reveal anything but...
[spoiler]Wade Wilson has cancer, and is a really pathetic pile of shit. So he signs up for an experimental treatment that turns him into Deadpool, a failed early Weapon-X. Later, when Wolverine breaks free, Deadpool escapes as well.[/spoiler]

I don't remember there being a deadpool in this movie? What does he look like?
And the only mentioned weapons were wolverine, and 11. Also 11 is a dude in the movie. I heard it was a chick in the comics(?)

Ok after comparing some pics I know for sure who deadpool is now

SERIOUS SPOILER:[spoiler]Deadpool is Weapon 11 in the movie[/spoiler]

Im hoping this will be good as its based mostly on the Wolverine: Origin book by Bill Jemas, Joe Quesada and Paul Jenkins which is one of my favourite Wolverine comics. I especially like the way how the book makes you think Wolverine is someone else in Origins...a boy called Dog Logan.

Apprently, their considering a sequel which is going to be set in Japan which i reckon will be based mostly on the Origins and Endings book. Again another one of my favourite Wolverine comics.

A friend of mine got the leaked copy last night and had it on in the background while we were playing poker.

I didn't see much (didn't want to ruin it) but what I saw looked great (minus the lack of CGI and special effects).

I seen the unfinished one on a torrent site. I didn't bother. I want to see the finished product via theater.
Ex-PS Fanboy
ya, the big fight scene was almost all CG, so it was just undetailed dummies and wireframe models, same with all the parts involving cyclops. Nothing he shot at had a cool explosion.

This game looks AMAZING. As for the movie, Idk if I'm gonna bother.

Im seeing this later. Ill let you know what its like.

I searched up the run-time and it seems abit short. Or atleast shorter than what i would have liked it to be considering its an origin movie. Its about 1:47 including the credits.

Anyway, ill let you lot know how i get on with it later.

I heard he's been in college for 10 years and his dad is cutting him off and he's got to find a way to stay in school and become a better person in the process. Can't fucking wait.

Its cause they got that giant fag Ryan Reynolds to play him and they didn't want to put a mask on someone that famous so people would recognize him and see the movie.

From what I heard about the comic book, they completely butchered deadpool in this movie. Read my spoiler if you want. It says what happens to him.

SPOILER ALERTS:

The film is disapointing. It's a good action film but the story is a huge let down.

The first 5 minutes, where Wolverine (James Howlett) is a kid is the only part which is vaguely faithful to the story, as its written in Wolverine Origin and also Origins and Endings.

I thought Liev Schreiber (sp) was a good casting for Sabertooth. He has that cockiness about his character and also the tamed agression. I didn't like the way they used some of Marvel's biggest characters as cameo rolls for example Emma Frost, her screen-time is probably only about 5minutes at most.

As for Deadpool - WHAT THE FUCK!!!! This is the part of the movie where it when RIGHT downhill for me. He is nothing like the character in the book. He speaks for abit when hes 'human' and has his smart-alec tone but at the end of the movie his mouth is...well he doesn't have one. Also he has the abilities of lots of other mutants like Cyclops, Wolverine etc. EDIT - Yes i know Deadpool has a healing factor but nowhere near as fast as Wolverines and he cant teleport like Wraith.

I didn't like the casting of Emma Frost. She wasn't tall enough or had enough presence. Plus she seemed to only have her diamond form in the film, which looked shit, i might add. Dominic Monaghan was a suprise appearence. And there is an even bigger suprise cameo at the end of the film.

The one thing i did like about the movie was the way it tied itself into the other X-Men films. There is a scene where Stryker is looking at a boy in a cryo-statis thing and he has the same eyes as his son in X-Men 2 (although the film doesn't actually say that but his son is mentioned) and there are a few other nods to the other films.

Overall i would give the film a 4 out of 10. But thats from a die-hard fans point of view who has actually read the source material of Wolverines Origins.

EDIT: And the Blob was just lol. I went toilet during most of his scene but it was laughing when i saw him. Think of Austin Powers.

Another thing forgot to mention which i actually liked and no one else probably understood in the cinema was the nod to the Wolverine and Gambit comic from the 90's. They worked together as a team for some part and i reckon he will play a bigger roll in the sequel. Also i think the casting for Gambit was naff but the way he was written was good.

And the other nod i liked was when Cyclops and Emma Frost worked together, in the current run of X-men and for the last few years they have been a couple. In the film they worked together as a team.

Deadpool has a better healing factor then Wolverine, and he can teleport due to a wristband.

I the movie he was never able to do any of that. He only was able to near the end [spoiler]because stryker turned him into weapon 11, and gave him all the other mutants powers[/spoiler]

I know he can teleport but not without technical aid.

But still, Wolverine Origins butchered Deadpool.

Heartless, your right about the wristband thing but in Wolverine Origins its an actual power and he flies about like how Wraith or Nightcrawler would/do

The movie seems to have thrown out the character all together. This seems like the movie Elektra.
DonkeyTits
The movie wasn't bad. A good movie, not exceptional. It has really good cgi. The cheesy sounds that Logan's blades made every time they touched something annoyed me.

I'm not really a big fan of X-Men, I only saw the first movie, but this looks badass.

Deadpool's been decapitated before, put his head back on his neck and he heals right up.

Agreement/argument: I think he meant teleportation like Wraith's ability. Wraith's teleportation is his natural mutant ability, Deadpool's teleportation comes from a device that gives him that ability. It's not too big of a difference, monkey, and it's one of the few inconsistencies that didn't bother me.

Deadpool is my favorite comic character (tied with the Punisher), and this movie pissed me off, especially since Ryan Reynolds signed on for three films, most likely meaning a Deadpool spinoff. The only light at the end of this tunnel is that Reynolds is a diehard Deadpool fan (he'd been dreaming of this role since before the X-Men film franchise started), and he may push for a more accurate portrayal in the future films.

I was pretty disappointed, as a movie goer and comic reader. It failed utterly on both fronts.

Oh, ok, that makes sense. And I didn't feel it was even worth watching not knowing the comics. I mean, this is kind of the same caliber that Van Helsing was.
