LITERALLY BEST MARVEL MOVIE. I was lowkey hella doubtful but by far best executed movie i've seen in a long time.— daddy (@MajinBuunny) January 19, 2016
Of course, reactions to these first screenings usually need to be taken with a grain of salt, as they are often filled with fans who are selected as a result of their likelihood to give positive reviews, whether they're actual plants or just perfectly fitting the target demographic. Let us all remember that the Fantastic Four Are Shockingly Positive" href="http://www.outerplaces.com/science-fiction/item/9493-first-reactions-to-fantastic-four-are-shockingly-positive" target="_blank">first reactions to Fantastic Four said it was "amazing." Overall, I've never seen a first screening yield bad reviews, whether for a good movie like Jurassic World or Ant-Man, a disappointing movie like Age of Ultron, or a disastrous movie like Fantastic Four.
That being said, these reviews for Deadpool are even more enthusiastic than usual, and it also just seems like a good movie. Ryan Reynolds seems perfect for the role, we already know there are at least a few good jokes from the trailers, and the violence, swearing, and breaking of the fourth wall all seem very faithful to the character. If we had to guess, some critics may object to the "standard plot" mentioned by a couple of these tweets, but fans will love it.
Just saw early screening of Deadpool. The movie is fucking amazing. Everything I was hoping for from the Merc with a Mouth! #deadpool— Rachel Howard (@racheljhoward) January 19, 2016
And like all marvel movies, make sure you wait for the tag at the end of the credits! Self aware and referential, perfect Deadpool.— Rachel Howard (@racheljhoward) January 19, 2016
Well, hell, you guys. They went and made an amazingly awesome, fun, exciting #Deadpool movie. It's outstanding.— Lucas Siegel (@LucasSiegel) January 19, 2016
This #deadpool fan's happy. Really fun movie. Overall plot's standard, but consistently strong comedy, fan service & action overshadow that.— Gregg Katzman (@GreggKatzman) January 19, 2016
