Odds are if you haven't seen Deadpool yet, you're going soon. And you should, it's great. What's also great about it is what the filmmakers were able to achieve with their limited (by comparison) resources. These visual effects images just scratch the surface. The FX Guide has a fascinating breakdown of what director Tim Miller and his team did to make the Merc with the Mouth come to life on the big screen, shooting lots of real footage and enhancing it with visual effects. Here are just a few before and after images.

Minor spoilers follow.

First is a shot from the film's third act. In case you haven't seen the movie, we won't give any context but you can see that on set, there wasn't much.

Next is the scene where Wade breaks out of the medical facility where he's given powers. What's super interesting about this is that the final shot is almost exactly the same as the original shot. Just with flames because you can't actually burn Ryan Reynolds.

Again, here's a shot where the final shot is kind of similar to what was filmed. Save for the giant metal mutant, and lots of buildings in the background.

And lastly, here's one of the film's most recognisable shots...and it's 100 per cent digital. That's not Reynolds at all, it's just a visual effect.

    If the budget for the film really was as low as the $58 million Wikipedia states, they got a lot of literal bang for their buck. Looked every bit as good as films costing three times as much.
