This film is actually one of the worst marvel films there is. As a film in general it's good but not great, the shrinking novelty has worn off. There were a couple of laughs but didn't find it that funny or impressive and felt like a churned out sequel which should of been better

After the fate-of-the-universe shenanigans of Avengers: Infinity War just three months ago (two months if you live in a country where football isn't that popular), Marvel's twentieth entry into their unstoppable cinematic universe, or MCU, understandably plays the role of palette-cleanser. Infinity War included every Marvel superhero so far, except Hawkeye, and while we still await a solo outing for nobody's favourite Avenger, Ant-Man - who was also absent from the cosmic battle against Thanos - is back for a sequel. The first Ant-Man somehow survived the loss of director Edgar Wright and emerged as a lighter, smaller-scale branch of the ever-expanding MCU. It may have followed the formula of Iron Man's origin very closely, but it was incredibly inventive when its hero suited-up and scaled-down to dodge everything from huge feet pounding a dancefloor, a hungry rat, or the sight of his giant best friend naked. Without the comforts of the origin story however, Ant-Man and the Wasp and returning director Peyton Reed are at a loss which direction to go, and end up throwing multiple storylines at the wall to see what sticks. Sadly, not much does.It's been two years since Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), aka Ant-Man, was drafted into Captain America's crew for a battle against Tony Stark and the Sokovia Accords in Germany. As we saw from the ending of Captain America: Civil War, Lang was imprisoned, but is now being allowed to serve the remainder of his sentence under house arrest, under the watchful eye of FBI agent Jimmy Woo (a scene-stealing Randall Park). With his new friends off fighting global threats and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) not talking to him for stealing one of his suits, Lang passes the time building huge play-houses for his superhero-obsessed daughter Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson), as well as playing drums, watching a lot of television, and crying reading The Fault in our Stars. At night, he is plagued by nightmares of the Quantum Realm, the microscopic world he found himself in during his showdown with Darren Cross, where time and space become irrelevant. He doesn't know it, but Hank and his daughter Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) are also thinking about the Realm, in the hope of finding their wife/mother Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer), who disappeared thirty years earlier during a mission with her husband. When Lang starts to receive strange messages seemingly from Janet, Pym has no choice but to bring the cat-burglar back into the fold in the hope of nailing her location.The first Ant-Man kept its exposition zippy, sweeping you up into its flow so that all the scientific jibberish being explained simply washed over you. Ant-Man and the Wasp must hold the world record for the number of times the word 'quantum' has been used within two hours. Janet can communicate with Lang through quantum entanglement, where particles interact in ways that essentially make them indistinguishable, even when they are separated by a huge distance. The film's 'villain', Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) experiences molecular instability due to an accident during a quantum experiment, meaning that she can phase through solid matter at will. At one point, Lang questions if the boffins tasked with explaining all of this to us simply put the word 'quantum' in front of everything. This is played for laughs, but doesn't necessarily absolve the film of the problem. Also thrown into the mix is slimy businessman Sonny Burch, played by a wasted Walton Goggins, who wants his greedy hands of Pym's tech and will stop at nothing until he has it. For a series that now prides itself on a lighter tone, it's a lot of plot to take in. The trippy Quantum Realm was teased in the first Ant-Man, and it remains a tease here. There's literally a whole new world to explore at sub-atomic level, yet it remains a frustrating mystery.While there's way too much going on plot-wise, Ant-Man and the Wasp doesn't disappoint with its set-pieces. As glimpsed in the trailer, the heroes turn everything from a salt-shaker to a Hello Kitty pez dispenser into a weapon, normally hurled at their enemies and used to block their path. With her ability to fly and shoot from the wrist, Wasp gets to kick the most ass, dispensing a vehicle full of baddies with speed and efficiency, and all brought to life with stunning special effects. Lang's motor-mouthed associate Luis (Michael Pena) also returns for a beefier part, with his gift for story-telling once again proving a highlight. Laurence Fishburne helps establish some gravitas whenever he is on screen as Bill Foster, Pym's former co-worker on the G.O.L.I.A.T.H. project and whose existence was teased as far back as Iron Man 2. It's ultimately two hours of fluff and Peyton Reed (along with his five writers, including Rudd) knows it, and while this was very much part of the character's charm the first time around, many jokes here fall flat. There are nice touches, such as Pym's laboratory, populated by giant ants carrying out maintenance work and tiny objects blown up in size stitching the whole thing together, which can be shrunken down to luggage size with the click of a button. Lang's relationship with his daughter is also very touching. But Reed never fully commits to one idea and refuses to run with the many promising ideas the film touches on. With the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok willing to embrace the crazy, Ant-Man and the Wasp was always going to pale in comparison.

Directed by Peyton Reed, this 2018 film adds to, and expands on Ant-Man's role in the Marvel cinematic universe.Picking up about 2-3 years after "Captain America 3 - Civil War", Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is back as Ant-Man. His exploits in Civil War left him in some serious bother with homeland security, as a result he's been tagged and under house arrest. His connections to Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope Van-Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) are off-limits, but they aren't in talks anymore as he apparently didn't inform or consult them before his exploits in Civil War - so they are upset he took the suit and got caught. One day, Scott has a dream where he sees Janet Van-Dyne (Michelle Pheiffer) in the Quantum zone, which coincides with an experiment Hank and Hope have done. It seems they need each other more than ever - and thus another Ant-Man adventure starts off. This time he's got Hope fighting alongside him; she's been given a suit too which allows her to follow in her mother's footsteps, much like Scott is following in Hank's footsteps. This is a very light and family friendly film, much like the first film and even more so than the likes of Thor Ragnorak - which, let's be honest, was practically a comedy-action film rather than a straight up superhero fantasy film. I guess with Disney behind the ownership it was always going to be a light version of Ant-Man, so if you've come to see some of the exploits from the comics you'll be sorely disappointed - Hank Pym is an alcoholic who domestically abuses his family, Scott isn't entirely a bad guy looking out for himself, Janet isn't flirting with the first person to show her attention. The film follows Ant-Man and the Wasp as they try their best to decode the message from Janet, while staying out of reach of the authorities, out of reach of the bad guys, and one step ahead of the villain - Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen). I FTR have to be honest here, the portrayal of Ghost is a massive let down for me, because I really like the comic version. On the flipside, Ghost is a better villain then Yellow-Jacket (Corey Stoll) was in the first film, so there a slight improvement here. More humour than action, but not on the same level as other Marvel films this can still be an enjoyable ride. For the Marvel fanboys/girls this does answer some questions brought up by Infinity War, but they might want to consider this a filler story in the bigger, grittier universe. Michael Peña is great comic relief, although it's not entirely needed with everyone else playing fun roles. Goggins plays a role that could have been easily excluded from the role, but you know as soon as he's on screen that he's going to be the slapstick bad guy - and that he's been added to add an element of chaos and hopefully another dimension so the action isn't flat. The pace of the film is good and generally the plot is too - albeit sometimes the dialogue is delivered at hundreds of miles an hour to make the science less daunting - which I'm sure younger audiences will blank out anyway in favour of funny giant ants attacking people. All in all this film is pretty much what you'd expect having watched the first film, unfortunately it doesn't bring anything new - other than a positive female role for Marvel, with the Wasp being touch and intelligent. As such, I'm going to give this exactly the same rating as the first film, which was 7 out of 10.
