2015 Summer Movie Review: Ant-Man

Ant-Man is the final film in the second phase of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. I gotta admit, this is a fun send-off. It centers on Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a criminal who has just escaped from prison. With the help from scientist Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), he puts on a suit with a power to shrink in size but increase in strength. As Ant-Man, Lang, with the help of his teammates–Luis (a scene-stealing Michael Peña), Dave (T.I.), and Kurt (Dave Dastmalchian)–tries to pull off a heist involving Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) who creates the Yellowjacket suit, similar to the Ant-Man suit. This movie has Edgar Wright’s name written all over it. Despite only being attached as the screenwriter and with Peyton Reed sitting in the director’s chair, Ant-Man provides more laughs than most mainstream comedies, as well as the action, the emotion, and the fun of any superhero movie. Not to mention the effects during the sequences where Lang has shrunk into ant-size are reminiscent to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Cannot wait to see how phase three will turn out to be.

3.5/4
