Ant-Man and the Wasp is the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and follows Scott and Hope’s fight with a powerful new villain.
This movie is just straight fun. In my opinion, it’s probably one of the funniest Marvel movies. The main characters are all really witty, and the banter between them is really entertaining. And like the first, there are some really funny scenes involving tiny things becoming big, and big things becoming small. It also has a really funny supporting cast, including Scott’s friends from the first movie, Luis, Kurt, and Dave.
A decent sized portion of this movie is dedicated to exploring Hank and Hope’s past, and what happened to Janet, Hank’s wife and Hope’s mother who went sub-atomic a long time ago. The movie also shows how Scott deals with his family and being a father, while also being a superhero. Just like the first and many other Marvel movies, there’s a great message about coming together and family.
The action, like always, is really cool and fun. The aspect of growing and shrinking is focused upon more during fights, especially since Ant-Man can grow really big like he did in Captain America: Civil War. Also, the new villain adds a different dynamic and flair due to their unique powers. All of the sequences are really entertaining to watch, and paced really well with the rest of the movie.
Parents should know that this is one of the most family friendly Marvel movies, like the first. There’s only a few swear words, and the violence isn’t worse than any of the others.
It’s a great movie to bridge the gap between larger Marvel movies, as well as explain where a few heroes have been during Avengers: Infinity War. Ant-Man and the Wasp is a great new Marvel movie, thanks to it’s really enjoyable cast, extremely funny scenes, and super exciting action sequences.
P.S. As usual, you won’t want to miss the end credit scenes. Stay ALL the way until after the last credit rolls.
