Very little is real in this Deadpool VFX breakdown

One of the hallmarks of good CGI (and great visual effects in general) is its invisibility. Success means never letting the audience figure out what’s been made with a computer and what was done practically. By this measure, Deadpool VFX studio Atomic Fiction did a remarkable job creating one of the film’s big action sequences without using much in the way of physical actors, props, cars, or buildings. It’s around 90 percent computer-generated, and it looks great. That’s made more impressive considering the movie cost just $58 million to make—peanuts for an effects-heavy superhero film. Perhaps that’s why the writers “don’t want $150 million” to make the already greenlit Deadpool 2. They don’t need it.
