《惡棍英雄:死侍》基本上就像超級英雄電影裡的唐納川普,恰巧這兩者崛起的時間宛如冥冥中註定,都在同一年發生。唐納川普處在部份美國人民對兩黨菁英政客操弄的政治感到絕望的年代,川普靠著「撇開政治正確言論、說出美國被忽略的族群最誠實的心聲」,從起初不被看好、被當笑話看待、甚至不被同黨政治人物接受,到後來跌破世人眼鏡,順利當選美國總統;《惡棍英雄:死侍》的上映時點,則是許多觀眾被超級英雄電影轟炸了很多年,對此片型的常用套路感到厭倦、疲乏的時刻,它知道觀眾看膩了老伎倆,所以不再假裝沒看見,它即使本身也是一部超級英雄源起電影,卻明白點出那些老套手法與花樣,給觀眾耳目一新的感受,許多嘲諷與自嘲都令人拍案叫絕,即使影片製作期間,片商與金主並沒有很強的信心,但上映後卻叫好又叫座,投資報酬超級高。

《惡棍英雄:死侍》是男主角兼製片萊恩雷諾斯努力了很久的寶貝,劇情大致是傭兵Wade Wilson(萊恩雷諾斯)愛上脫衣舞孃Vanessa(Morena Baccarin),以為可以過著幸福日子,卻發現自己得了癌症。有個神秘人物表示可以治療Wade的病,結果卻令他基因突變,雖然擺脫了癌症,卻變成超人類,最糟糕的是還毀了容,讓他再也不敢見Vanessa一面。

本片最精彩的點,就是它毫無節制的瘋狂幽默感,不僅一直打破第四面牆來嘲諷超級英雄電影、X戰警系列、或其他流行文化,以及開一大堆爆笑黃腔以外,甚至還把電影公司、導演、劇本到萊恩雷諾斯自己都酸了一遍,包括雷諾斯只靠臉蛋、沒演技也扛不起票房都直接講了出來,完全沒有極限與自尊,只為博君一笑。我有好多段落都笑到無法自已,光是史上最誠實的片頭就幾乎笑得胃痛,後面還有一堆笑點都令人佩服編劇哪來那麼多屁話,像Wade被帶去見「教授」時,問的那句「Stewart還是McAvoy?那些時間軸沒人搞得懂」就笑得我都嗆到了。

有時間的話請務必看到電影最後面,跑完工作人員字幕後的片尾,向80年代經典YA片《翹課天才》致敬的橋段,那部份同樣非常精彩。

不過,《惡棍英雄:死侍》的缺點也跟唐納川普一樣,那就是「罵是罵得爽,但問題恐怕依舊未解決」。美國未來的最大就業威脅恐怕是來自人工智慧/機器人而非外國人,以及產業結構轉變,邊境牆蓋多高都沒用;《惡棍英雄:死侍》把超級英雄電影裡的老套全笑了一遍,但把笑點移掉,它正是一部標準的超級英雄源起故事,劇情架構似曾相識、反派老套、主角以外的角色塑造不夠等等,《惡棍英雄:死侍》明白這些東西很無趣,所以用非線性剪接將故事打散,避免一大段無聊劇情,但畢竟沒有真正開創出新局。

但光憑《惡棍英雄:死侍》願意面對此類電影的「房間裡的很多隻大象」,把大家心知肚明的事情用最幽默誠實的方式呈現出來,就已經是娛樂效果滿點了,這是一部誠意十足的自嘲嘲人作品,推薦給過去已觀賞很多部超級英雄電影的朋友們,更推薦給厭煩此類電影的影迷。

經典對白:
***

Deadpool: [to the audience] I know right? You're probably thinking, "Whose balls did I have to fondle to get my very own movie"? I can't tell you his name, but it rhymes with "Polverine."

[In an Australian accent]

Deadpool: And let me tell you, he's got a nice pair of smooth criminals down under.

***

Deadpool: Oh, like there's something wrong with eating before sundown or saving money. No, you know that bad guy that you let go? He's got my girl. You're gonna help me get her back.

Colossus: [voice from inside the mansion] Wade, is that you?

Deadpool: Yeah, it's me, Deadpool, and I got an offer that you can't refuse. I'm gonna wait out here, okay? It's a big house. It's funny that I only ever see two of you. It's almost like the studio couldn't afford another X-Man.

***

Colossus: You will come talk with Professor Xavier.

Deadpool: McAvoy or Stewart? These timelines can get so confusing.

***

Deadpool: Now, I'm about to do to you what Limp Bizkit did to music in the late 90s.

***

Deadpool: A fourth wall break inside a fourth wall break? That's like, sixteen walls.

***

Blind Al: Looks aren't everything.

Deadpool: Looks ARE everything! Ever heard Dave Beckham speak? It's like he mouth-sexed a can of helium. You think Ryan Reynolds got this far on a superior acting method?

Blind Al: Love is blind, Wade.

Deadpool: No. You're blind.

***

Wade Wilson: [voiceover, after Vanessa has agreed to marry him] Here's the thing. Life is an endless series of trainwrecks with only brief commercial-like breaks of happiness. This had been the ultimate commercial break. Which meant it was time to return to our regularly scheduled programming.

[Wade collapses]
