Ant-Man (2015)

US 117m, Colour
Director: Peyton Reed; Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Tip Harris, Anthony Mackie, Wood Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Michael Douglas

Ant-Man-2015Digging even further into the vaults of Marvel Comics, lesser superheros continue to make their way into motion pictures, and in the case of Ant-Man, the result is surprisingly good. As with most of these movies, a once ordinary man finds himself with incredible powers which he uses to save the world. An action film with exceptional special effects that beg to be used in a remake of The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957), Ant-Man is a fun comic-book adaptation that will undoubtedly result in a string of sequels (Klaus Ming March 2016).

    For me, this was very much in the “I’m glad I saw it, and I’m glad I didn’t pay to see it in a theater” category. Very entertaining — especially the vey witty use of flashbacks — but I had two main complaints:

    1) The “evil guy steals the good guys tech — and his company — and they fight at the end, both using the tech” plot. I feel like I’ve seen that story already in at least four Iron Man movies.

    2) No Wasp, until the very end? Really? I know Marvel will do almost anything in order to push their female characters away from center stage, but I remember when Ant-Man was introduced. The Wasp was always there, from the beginning. And she was no sidekick — she was the leader of the Avengers for a long time. I don’t think we’ll be seeing that in the movies. Unfortunately.

      Agreed, been there done that feel with the basic plot of Ant-Man. as for the Wasp – I’m afraid i didn’t notice (having little-to-no knowledge of this superhero).

      I’m guessing they were banking on the Wasp for Part II 🙂
