What is it about? The latest addition in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or the Avengers/Guardians of the Galaxy universe, is an amazing movie. After getting kicked out of his own company, Dr. Hank Pym recruits former thief Scott Lang, who was just released from prison. He trains him to become the Ant-Man, by using a suit that allows him to shrink, but have super-strength and an army of ants. Lang must prevent Darren Cross, whose former mentor was Pym, from using a similar suit for evil. You do not need to have seen the Avengers movies to understand Ant-Man, however there are some references to events in the Avengers movies.
How is it? 4.25/5 Overall, Ant-Man is one of the best films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and perhaps tied for the funniest with Guardians of the Galaxy. It is enjoyable for both Avengers fans and those who have not seen the Avengers.
How is the action, humor, and special effects? 5/5 The action in Ant-Man, combined with dazzling special effects is remarkable. However, it is not as large-scale as other Marvel movies, such as The Avengers. For example, the final battle takes place in a little girl’s bedroom on a toy train track, as compared to in The Avengers, where it takes place in the whole New York City. This is also a positive trait about the movie: it differentiates it from other Marvel movies. It is also lighter than other films in the Marvel universe, the concept itself being quite silly. Ant-Man is also a hilarious movie, and much of the humor comes from one of Lang’s thief friends, Luis, played by Michael Peña.
In conclusion, Ant-Man is an amazing movie.
