“Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” — Non-spoiler Movie Review
Paul Rudd is back as Scott Lang, the petty thief transformed into the crime-fighting Ant-Man. Scott Lang’s Ant-Man is known for his quick wit and humor, as well as his resourcefulness and ability to think on his feet. He often uses his size-changing abilities and control over ants to outsmart and defeat his enemies. After he helped save the world in “Avengers: Endgame,” Scott is enjoying his newfound celebrity as the bestselling author of “Look Out for the Little Guy.”
He’s also raising his teen daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton) with the help of girlfriend Hope (Evangeline Lilly), aka The Wasp, and her parents Hank (Michael Douglas), the original Ant-Man, and Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer), who’s just back after 30 years of captivity in the Quantum Realm.
If there’s one thing Scott Lang always wanted in life, it was to spend more time with his daughter. Now Scott’s goal of spending time with Cassie is happening tenfold, as the two find themselves stuck in the Quantum Realm. After encountering their adversary Kang the Conqueror, Scott’s mission switches from just spending time with his daughter to safely navigating the Quantum Realm by her side.
Kang the Conqueror is a supervillain from the Marvel Comics universe who is known for his time-traveling abilities and his attempts to conquer different eras in history. He was created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby and made his first appearance in Avengers #8 in 1964.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Jonathan Majors has been cast as the character. Without giving any spoilers, we know his role as Kang in the MCU will be significant and have far-reaching consequences for the future of the franchise.
The first Ant-Man, one of the high points of the whole Marvel cinematic project, was distinguished by its goofy humor and smaller-scale story. This new movie is a total departure from the past two films. We did enjoy watching the movie and commend the cast. However, the pacing felt rushed and too much is thrown at audiences to digest. In our opinion, the humor was a bit off in a few scenes and reminded us of “Thor: Love and Thunder.”
I’m a Marvel fan and would certainly recommend it to those who want to see more of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, I’d have to give this film a 7/10 score.
BIG and small things await! “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” is now playing exclusively in theaters.
Directed by Peyton Reed and written by Jeff aliveness. The movie stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, Jonathan Majors, Kathryn Newton, and Michelle Pfeiffer. It has a runtime of 2 hours 5 minutes and has two post-credit scenes.
