See the Review of Ant-Man and the Wasp

After all this time, I still wonder what Edgar Wright would have done for the record. However, what Peyton Reed showed us in the first Ant-Man showed signs of originality in a formal Marvel Movie. it was not without flaws, but an easy-to-watch film that was not too difficult for its audience. After the infinity debate, which many of us have probably not fully recovered from yet, a hero like Ant-Man is a good dose of morphine to remind us how much fun the MCU can be. Size plays a role in Ant-Man and the Wasp, but although the Movie highlights what made the first Ant-Man a success, I felt like Deja vu infected this movie because it felt too similar.


Peyton Reed has reduced Ant-Man and the Wasp to subatomic precision, retaining the Charm associated with the ability to resize. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) shows even more heart by trying to be a good father and a hero while he is under house seize for his actions in the civil debate. I found the scenes where Scott tries to be the father of his daughter Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson) very sweet and communicative, the lengths where Scott likes to stage a whole adventure with cardboard around his house so that he can make Cassie happy, give a lot of heart to the character of Scott, briefly seen in the first Film.

We studied a name in the title to switch to The Wasp or Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), which Fans will remember who wanted a piece of Action and finally got something, even more than Ant-Man. The film takes the desires of its characters from the first Film and uses them as the basis for its plot style that surpasses Ant-Man, including in terms of what she can do with this shrinking ability. His character remains in the family domain as we explore his relationship with Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), his father.

Of course we get more Ant-Man Action and although the first scene introduces us to the kind of Action that comes from the resizing ability, I feel like the action scenes in Ant-Man and the Wasp become more memorable because there are much more interesting ways in which the Film uses this ability and integrates it The inclusion of objects such as cars, a Pez vending machine and even an entire building once shrunk and rolled like a suitcase creates wonders, because once something is smaller and/or larger, it is scalable and adaptable, he plays with the element that made Ant-Man unique.


Note that all the good points I made about Ant-Man and the Wasp are elements that we already knew, because it is impossible to look for an exceptional quality that goes further in this Film. A lot of people will leave this movie saying, “it wasn’t as good as the first one”. Even the strong humor I felt varied between Wisecracks and sitcom events. The main culprit of this turnover is the character Jimmy Woo (Randall Park), an FBI Agent who spends most of his time trapping Scott by breaking up his property. This has blurred the comic tone of the film and it has a prologue effect on a good mood that arrives awkwardly. I’m sure that “Wazzup!”was a pensioner joke decades ago.

The Tone of this film is paralyzed not only by the humor, but also by the editing. Ant-Man and the Wasp is a very cropped film where the cuts are too sharp. It’s almost as if the Film has a sound, but the editing is out of sync. There are scenes like the school scene where Scott gets his suit back when he’s the size of a child that can’t be found in both the humor and the action. I waited for the Moment when a teacher would consider him a child, but that Moment never came.


A big review of the first Ant-Man was that the villain was too much of a role model villain. Ant-Man and the wasp try to solve this problem with Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), who has a small connection with Hank Pym. However, if you think about the great Marvel villains, Ghost will not appear on any List, because the Motivation is not perceived as strong.

Ant-Man and the Wasp was a huge disappointment for me after I received it positively in the Film. The progress of the film stopped and I was wondering where you could take this hero. The story consisted of already planned things and places, and when she tried to become more interesting, she felt hopeless. I would have preferred to see a movie about Scott Lang The father rather than Scott Lang The Ant-Man, because that’s where the Movie shone the most, Everything else felt rushed and just fun to have fun. Sure, you can have fun, but you better be prepared to feel the sting of the movie after that.
