Deadpool Had More Found Mistakes Than Any Movie In 2016

This was a big year for Deadpool. After struggling to get made at all, and limited to a sub-$60 million budget, the movie proved to be a critical and financial smash hit - and will definitely rank within the domestic box office Top 10 for 2016. In a season when we look back on the last 12 months, the Merc With The Mouth solo movie is one of our brightest memories. Unfortunately, as it turns out, it's also apparently the most mistaken-riden feature of the year.

The whole purpose of the website is to catalog various errors in major film releases, and while titles like Now You See Me 2, Zootopia and Captain America: Civil War ranked highly , they wound up being way behind Deadpool in the final tally. You can scope out the Top 10 below:

1. Deadpool - 232. Zootopia - 133. Captain America: Civil War - 134. Now You See Me 2 - 125. Sully - 116. Jason Bourne - 107. The Conjuring 2 - 108. The Divergent Series: Allegiant - 79. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - 710. X-Men: Apocalypse - 7

Deadpool is definitely guilty of a the sins that the website points out - with most of the mistakes being related to continuity. A perfect example is the scene where the Ryan Reynolds' titular character cuts off his own hand to escape from Colossus' handcuffs:


He is clearly cutting off his left hand in that shot, right? Well, in the shot that follows it, where Deadpool is falling off the highway, for some reason it's his right hand that is missing:


It's important to note that just about all of the mistakes listed in Deadpool are just minor nitpick-y things that don't actually detract at all from the finished product. Continuity errors are bound to happen when you're trying to make a superhero blockbuster with a fraction of the standard budget, so we can overlook these minor problems. Director Tim Miller, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and star Ryan Reynolds delivered us something very special with the feature, and it's hard not to love it, warts and all.

You'll be seeing Deadpool pop up a lot more here in Cinema Blend this month, as we have a bunch of year end features coming your way on which the film is bound to feature. So stay tuned for that, as well as all updates about the currently in-development Deadpool 2!
