Movie Review: Ant Man and the Wasp
Just when you thought marvel movies couldn’t get any better, they present you with the best of 2018
Exactly how would they do it?
In spite of lots of Marvel films being unleashed on audience every now and then, heroism is no place in sight. Set after ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and paving the way to the events of ”Avengers: Infinity War’, the Ant-man spin-off is an exciting fun ride that draws in you sincerely and entertains you with its CGI effects and comic mien.
The sequel shows Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) astutely juggling between his fatherhood duties, handling the FBI and another superhero mission. In spite of the fact that the contracting / shrinking capacity of the heroes is the film’s USP, what lies at the core of this film is the father-son bond between Casey-Scott and Hank-Hope. The director offers quite a humanly touch with the perfect blend of emotions & relationships, rather than being driven by the additional CGI or other technical effects added to the film. This indeed is reviving and maybe the motivation behind why Marvel films has such a gigantic fan base over the globe.
What’s funny to watch is Michael Pena’s superb screen presence and quick monolog combined with a rant on truth serum – Hence ending up being the film’s most amusing scene. But yes, apart from this, one can really feel the absence of a really good villain as compared to the other marvel movies.
By and large, ‘Ant Man’ and the Wasp is the Marvel underdog that scores huge, imitating the idea of the continuous Football World Cup. It likewise clarifies why Lang didn’t join the Avengers in Infinity War. Do watch it!
