Blant-Man and The Boresp is the definition of mediocre. I don’t think I’ve seen such a boring safe MCU movie since the first Ant-Man movie. I’m annoyed with you Marvel. You had a good track record since Civil War. I gave Dr Strange and Black Panther a pass but I’m not going to stand for it this time. There is only so many times you can make me forgive you for your boring safe superhero movies that half the planet are finally starting to get sick of. This is also one of the first Marvel movies that seems to have more of a focus on kids or even little little kids. Where I live the movie is rated PG! Since when have Superhero movies (excluding animated) been rated PG?
Skip on Marathon Watching: So if you’re familiar with the Infinity Wars ending which I presume is all of you by the box-office gross. So if you decide to have a marathon with a bunch of friends then you get to the end of Infinity War and go ‘Oh that was so awesome but too bad Ant-Man is next. (Moans)’ It feels weird because of the timeline and also since this movie is basically filler. The movie is about Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and his daughter Hope (Evangeline Lilly) wanting to bring back Hank’s wife from the void thing and they need Paul Rudd to put on the Ant-Man suit again to save the day from another obscure Marvel Villain that not even fans of the comics would’ve heard of. Also Michael Pena is back to just be there and get in the way.
There is other stuff too but… Just trust me you can skip this one and for that matter skip the first Ant-Man movie too.
The Minimal Effort Is Required To Make The Most Money: What I hate about this movie is just how ‘meh’ it is. The acting is alright, the action is kind of cool but forgettable, the soundtrack is the same as every superhero movie nowadays, the movie looks bland and everything is just okay and passable. As of writing this review it’s been less than an hour and I’m getting the disappointing feeling from this movie. (My expectations weren’t very high to begin with!) I think it’s best to compare this movie to Solo. Both don’t have a reason to exist besides Disney thinking it can get away with making it. Both feel like no love was put into it and both leave me wondering what was the point of all this. I guess it would be like if I just stopped putting effort into my review. Maybe I should try that ………

Quick Thoughts On Movie: People are praising Paul Rudd and I guess he did alright. Hank Pym is the most boring character ever. The first movie he was just puking out exposition everywhere and in this one he looked like he even didn’t want to be in the movie. I think the best actor in this movie is Evangeline Lilly since she acted like she wanted to be there instead of wanting to bolt from the set like that old guy. Michael Pena and the kid combined into useless characters who were just there. The villains I’m just going to skip because they’re all the same to me and lastly the FBI guy reminded me of Candace from Phineas and Ferb – always wanting to catch Paul Rudd in the act but doesn’t. This leads into another point which I’m saving for last. The story just focuses on the plot like Infinity War but this time I don’t care about anything that’s going on.
I’m not going to discuss spoilers because nothing really remarkable happened because if you knew the plot of this movie (which I‘ve just told you) then you’ve got a really good idea on what’s going to happen. The last thing about the plot is the Post Credit Scenes are not worth checking out. Last thing is the comedy which this movie keeps its light hearted tone which I can appreciate and I’m sorry I didn’t find it very funny. I think someone like Ant-Man should be light hearted which I’m fine with but half the jokes seemed like something a little kid would find funny and that leads me into.
This Movie is For Little Kids: This is the most childish MCU movie yet. The humour is brought down to kid level and half of the things that happen don’t make sense or are completely forgotten because kids don’t care about that stuff. What threw me off the most is when I sat in the cinema I watched trailers for Johnny English or Christopher Robin and Teen Titans Go even though the movie looked more mature, which sucks. I think this movie suffers because it’s so dumbed down. No one gets seriously hurt or if they do it’s very cartoony, everything is flat out explained because children aren’t that smart apparently and there is very little conflict. If you got rid of the villain then it would just be a bunch of cops and criminals chasing after our heroes.
The best way to describe Ant-Man and The Wasp is a straight to TV Disney Channel Sequel (with a bigger budget) which is such a shame. Another thing for a movie called Ant-Man and The Wasp it’s not really about Ant-Man and The Wasp (More False Advertising, Hooray!) they have a small flirtation and a few scenes of banter but it’s really about helping the boring old man with his lame science experiments. Also Michael Pena has to crash the party every once in awhile so the kids don’t get bored.
Final Thoughts: Ant-Man and The Wasp is the blandest movie I’ve seen this year. Something you would be excited to buy in a toy store but in less than a week it’s chucked into the bottom toy box to be forgotten forever because your kid got bored of it and went back to Lego or Nintendo Switch. It’s a 4/10. I wouldn’t watch this again it’s that bland. I guess if you have kids that are between 0 to 5 then I guess they might like it and to everyone else I would wait until it’s on Netflix or it’s in a second hand shop.
Those are my thoughts on Ant-Man and The Wasp so if you agree or disagree please let me know in the comments. If you can share it with your loved ones that would be great. If you haven’t noticed I’m a huge fan of movies, TV Shows & Video Games and I’m willing to suffer for my audience so let me know what I should review next. (Next will be the thing I keep mentioning, so stay tuned.)
Thanks for reading this review and I’ll see you again in the next review.
