This was a bit late because the cinemas here have very limited screening schedule for this particular Marvel movie. Well I am still going to watch and make a review out of it, as some folks say, better late than never.
After going to that dark tone, Marvel brings us a lighter tone for a change. That is the movie: Ant-man and The Wasp. It is set after events in Captain America: Civil War. Here Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd is on house arrest but that won’t be keeping him in becoming Ant-man.
In addition to Ant-man is his new partner, The Wasp. They are now teaming up to save Hank Pym’s wife, Janet and to get away from bad people who wants their tech.
The Wasp is amazing here. Wasp’s fight scenes kind of reminds me of night-crawler from the first part of X-men’s second movie. Here she does not technically disappear or teleport, but the way she gets small, then pops up then small again and beats the crap of the goons, it kind of gives me that impression. But it is still very cool. I even like her fight scenes more than Ant-man. Maybe because she flies and has blasters.
Ant-man is more of a comic relief here. They gave him flaws and bit of stakes which is really good since he is sort of over-powered if you ask me. I am actually glad that they put some sort of consequence whenever he becomes big. It is like the idea is based from Ultra-man.
They have funny and sympathetic villains to entice the story. It seems Marvel Studios is learning from the weaknesses of their villains on previous Marvel films. Good for them. I hope they keep it up. They should not shrink to their old ways. Louis played by Michael Peña is still good at narrating stories.
This is a good light-hearted film. I’ll rate this movie 8 out of 10. 🙂
