Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp is the newest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and definitely will not be the last. This film stars returning Paul Rudd as Ant-Man (Scott), Evangeline Lilly as the Wasp (Hope), and Michael Douglas as Hank. The story is about trying to get Hope’s mom back from the sub-atomic quantum realm because she’s been in there since 1987 trying to disable a soviet missile and only now is it possible to bring her back to regular size. While they are trying to bring her back, Scott is on his last couple of days of being on house arrest and one of Hank’s former colleagues, Bill Foster (Laurence Fishburne), is trying to save a quantumly unstable girl, Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) that Hank has the technology for. In this film it is apparent that Marvel is getting more creative with there villains, there isn’t too much of a villain in this film, it’s more of just a race against time and no one really has a very ill intent. Though there is a lack of a very mean villain, the film has suits that shrink, and resize and what-not, which make for some creative action scenes. The contrast between the scenes of Hank being extremely small cutting to see Scott extremely large are done very well. some of the parts were a little confusing and it just cut to another scene with little explanation, but it wasn’t too bad. Comedically, this movie excells, like the first film, but I think that the ongoing joke of Luis (Michael Peña) having long backstories for everything should have been used just a little more. This movie is good.
