The first Ant Man movie was one of those stealth Marvel movies featuring a relatively unknown character that kind of snuck up audiences and was a surprise hit. Ant Man and Wasp came in with far more fanfare, since the characters were now more established and well known. I was big fan of the first movie. It was clever and funny with a good cast. I don’t know if I quite liked the sequel as much as I liked the first movie, but it was a definite winner.
To create the timeline, this movie happens two years after Captain America: Civil War and just before Avengers: Infinity Wars. Because of his role in the aforementioned movie, the Ant Man isn’t on good terms with his cohort or her father, Hank Pym, however they need his help in retrieving the original Wasp, who they believe is still stuck in some sort of quantum zone that Ant Man travelled to in the first movie.
There’s no true villain in this movie (except for the generic evil rich business types that are trying to get Hank Pym’s technology, and they weren’t all that impressive). They did introduce the Ghost, who isn’t exactly a supervillain, but is constantly going against the heroes in the movie—hey, they need someone with superpowers that they can fight against. Anyway, she does have some cool powers. There are loads of action scenes, including some really cool ones where things get super huge or shrink. Mostly, what I enjoyed about the movie is its sense of humor. Luis was great for his comic relief, especially his recapping of past events. The FBI agents were hard to take seriously, but also brought in comic relief. Although, this won’t crack my top ten Marvel movies, it was fun and worth watching.
