Villain/ Big Bad45%
80% Marvel has done it again!
Hello and Welcome Reviewers!
Today I’m reviewing the Ant-Man movie.
Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.**
Ant-Man is a surprisingly funny Marvel movie. It’s not your typical comic book film. It’s more or less a heist film with comic book characters. This movie is filled with action, drama and some funny antics. You should bring the entire family to see this one.
This Ant-Man movie review contains possible spoilers. You’ve been warned.
** Warning, Possible Spoilers!!!! **
Michael Peña is hilarious in this movie. His character of Luis brings a ton of funny scenes and makes you fall in love with him. He is a side character but a very pivotal piece in the crew of Ant-Man. You think his character would be an annoying one but he surprises the crowd. The conversation flashbacks with him are one of the best moments of the movie.
The effect of shrinking Ant-Man was top-notch. This was one main thing you had to get right with this character because it’s his main tool. It looked near flawless. You see his surroundings after the transformation and you could see the ratio aspects of things increase or decrease; depending on the shrinking or growing.
Ant-Man vs. Falcon was a good fight. You’re able to witness the mixing of worlds when you introduce Ant-Man into the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). This fight didn’t feel one sided for the most part. The Falcon got in a few hits and held his own for a while until his defeat.
There are a lot of great moments from the movie. So much that I will just mention them in quick bullet form.
- Two after the movie scenes. Very big spoilers await. Highlight the two of them to see.
- Hank Pym showing off the new and improved Wasp suit to Hope.
- Falcon, Captain America and Bucky (Winter Soldier) in a bunker talking about teaming up with Ant-Man.
- Michael Douglas’ portrayal of Hank Pym was a good one. He gave a little insight into the nature of the character. We even got a chance to see him in costume.
- Multiple easter eggs of Marvel things. It looks like there were at least 10 or more references.
There’s one big bad point to this movie. It’s something Marvel seems to have trouble when making their movies. The villain for the movie is a weak one. He is easily defeated after a few moments. It feels like each Marvel villain contains one major weak point like the Deathstar in Star Wars. You would think they could have some counter measure or something. You never feel like the hero is in real danger while fighting the big bad person.
Hank Pym feels like a smart guy but his knowledge of the “Quantum zone” was limited. Maybe it’s just the geek side of me talking but I see Pym being a guy that would be curious enough to go to this zone and see the actual affects to the body. He’s a scientist and it would be very cool to do. It just seem like he never tried and therefore making the setting on his suit feel like a weird placement. Don’t have the setting if you’re not willing to go on it.
It would be a different movie if they made Yellow Jacket into a stronger villain. The fight scenes with Ant-Man and Yellow Jacket brought down the score of this movie for me. The amount of skill between the two characters was evident. Yellow Jacket had no way to win against Ant-Man. He seemed to be all over the place and made a lot of careless moves.
