Here’s something I have been looking forward to seeing for a very long time. Billionaire, Dr. hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is a retired scientist that has created the formula and suit for the Ant-Man. Pym left the company in the hands of Darren Cross (Corey Stoll). Cross wants to figure put how to make this formula so the United States can wipe out any type of army. After realizing Cross is very close to figuring out the formula, Dr. Pym realizes he must act in a way that will stop Cross from doing this. Pym recruits Scott Lang (Paul Rudd). Lang has just been released from prison and needs any job he can so that he can be in his daughter’s life. Lang now becomes the Ant-Man and is trained by Pym and his daughter, Hope (Evangeline Lilly). The Ant-Man suit will allow him to shrink in size, have normal human strength and also control a huge army of ants. Lang must use his skills to stop Cross from releasing this formula and allowing the world to get their hands on it and using it as a terrible weapon.
This is a movie that I have been waiting for since I heard it was being made and I am so glad it did not disappoint. This is the new installment that Marvel has to offer and I think it kicked-ass. This is really a movie that gets the job done and is everything you want to see out of an awesome superhero movie. I also really have to touch on the humor in this movie because there were some scenes that were absolutely hysterical. This is one of the summer’s most entertaining and awesome movie’s that you will see. This has been one the world and all Marvel fans have been waiting for. Ant-Man provides the audience with so much entertainment, some awesome action scenes and great humor. Also, there are a lot of awesome visual effects.
The acting in Ant-Man is pretty solid and I think this may be the main reason this movie worked as well as it did. Knowing that Paul Rudd was the lead really scared me in the beginning. I did not think this was going to be the right role for him and that it would make the movie really bad. I was definitely wrong and I think that he really showed that he can not only be funny, but he can also be awesome and bad-ass. I really thought Michael Douglas was pretty solid in this. Going into this movie, I really didn’t understand why he was doing this, but he did not disappoint in any way and he was one of my favorite characters. Besides the movie being awesome, I think the solid acting we see help this movie surprise people in bigger ways than expected.
Ant-Man is probably one of the more funnier Marvel movies and it absolutely worked. The humor in this movie is just another thing piled on to what makes this movie as awesome as it was. It is really unbelievable that this worked as well as it did because it is definitely goofy in ways. This is just an all-around fun movie that even kids can enjoy. While this was aimed more towards teens and adults, this is absolutely something you can take your children to see and they will probably enjoy it as much as the adults. With the success of this movie, there is no doubt we are going to see a lot more of Ant-Man. This is one I definitely recommend going to see if you wanna be incredibly entertained or if you are a fan of the Marvel movies.
Overall, Ant-Man provides humor, entertainment and all kinds of awesomeness. We see good acting and some awesome visual effects. You will leave this wanting to see more of Ant-Man.
