Movie Review: Ant-Man and the Wasp

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” as of 2018 is the latest and newest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. However after the events of “Avengers Infinity War,” the Marvel film that came out only months before, “Ant-Man and the Wasp” was considered a nice, funny, and family friendly movie that made the Marvel Cinematic Universe tone much more light-hearted, well at least for the most part.

This particular Marvel film seemed to be fitting the mold of the more recent Marvel films, and that mold is comedy. Lately the Marvel has been producing many funny, comedy style movies. These include but are not limited to: “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Ant-Man,” “Spiderman: Homecoming,” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp.”

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” was released July 6 and was directed by Peyton Reed. This film also starred Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Evangeline Lilly (Wasp), and Michael Peña (Luis). It was also given an 87% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Overall, I think it’s a really nice and funny movie. Also I was a huge supporter for this movie because this was the Wasp’s cinematic debut. And considering the Wasp was the first female avenger in the Marvel comics, I definitely think it was about time that she appear in a film.

Ghost was originally an Iron Man villain in the Marvel comics, but was transformed into an antagonist of “Ant-Man and Wasp.” Ghost was portrayed by Hannah John-Kamen, and she did a great job. I felt like her development transitioned and flowed nice and smoothly, and she really fit in with the tone of the movie as kind of the villain with a dark past to kind of tie down the humor and joke aspect of the movie.

Next I’m going to touch on and explain the end credit scene of the movie. In a quick description the end credit scene involves Hank Pym, Hope VanDine (Wasp), Hope’s mother, and Scott Lang (Ant-Man). They go and send Scott into the quantum realm to retrieve some particles that are only found within the quantum realm. But while Scott is in the quantum realm, Thanos snaps his fingers halfway across the world in Wakanda. Then, unfortunately Hope, Hank, and Hope’s mother disappear into dust. However Scott does survive the snap. However he is still stuck in the quantum realm without anyone knowing he is there.

So overall, I think the movie was a total success. Marvel’s goal was to get out another family friendly comedy and “Ant-Man and the Wasp” definitely was and it was so much more. So that’s why I’m going to give “Ant-Man and the Wasp” an 8.7/10.
