ANT-MAN AND THE WASP MOVIE REVIEW
Ant-Man and the Wasp is directed by Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Micheal Pena, Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Hannah John-Karmen, Abby Ryder Fortson, Randall Park, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, and Michael Douglas. The plot of the movie is as Scott Lang balances being both a superhero and a father, Hope Van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past. There have been films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that I have loved, but I have not liked the majority of them. With this being the twentieth film I was expecting something amazing. Turns out they should have switched release dates and released Infinity War as the twentieth film. This movie was so boring it was hard to sit through. Just like in the first film I found myself not caring about Scott Lang it's mostly about him sneaking out while on house arrest. The character of Hope (The Wasp) played by Evangeline Lilly is given more to do in this film and I thought she was fine, but I didn't find anything about her character that interesting. Micheal Douglas is once again the only thing I like about this film. Micheal Pena is even more annoying in this and his humor still felt forced. Something happens towards the end that I can't get into because it will ruin the film for you, but it really doesn't make sense. Even if it was in the comics that's not fair because the majority of people who watch these movies don't read the comics. As for the villain, the character is named ghost and she can phase in and out of things. That character's backstory was intriguing, but the development of the character in the present was terrible. 1 out of 5 stars for Ant-Man and the Wasp. I hope you enjoyed my review.
