Big or small, Antman and the Wasp is a fun movie for summer.
Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) has only three days left on his house arrest after the incident in Germany with the Avengers when Dr. Pym (Michael Douglas) and his daughter, Hope (Evangeline Lilly) seek him out to help with recovering Dr. Pym’s wife, Janet Van Dyne, (Michelle Pfeiffer) from the Quantum Realm. Caught up in a race against time to rescue Janet, Antman and the Wasp must battle Ghost, a young woman who phases (Ghost) and a smarmy technology dealer, as well as keeping the FBI from finding out the Scott is out of the house.
Balanced between funny moments, action and heart-warming, Antman and the Wasp is a fun movie for the summer. The whole movie encompasses a few days in Scott’s life as he tries to balance being a father, helping others and starting his own company. The moments with his daughter, Cassie are sure to tug at your heartstrings. But it’s the comedy which steals the movie. From the “Truth Serum” to “Channeling Janet”, the movie will have you laughing out loud.
With a marvelous cast including Lawrence Fishburn, Michael Pena and Judy Greer, in addition to the stars- Douglas, Rudd, Lilly and Pfeiffer, there are plenty of familiar faces. More serious than the first Antman movie, this sequel ties in nicely to the Infinity War movies and features two after credits’ scenes and a Stan Lee cameo.
The music reminded me of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies with songs by The Partridge Family The Four Seasons. Viewers of the certain age will be tapping their feet along with the music. Antman and the Wasp leaves you hanging as it segways into the Infinity War movie and possibly sets up what may happen in the future unnamed Infinity War sequel.
While a fun movie, Antman and the Wasp will appeal to fans of the Marvel Universe more than typical movie goers since they will understand the connections and comments about certain characters. But with a family friendly message, it’s a movie which will appeal to young and old alike.
It's all about the movies...
