This Ant-man sequel delivers some entertainment fit for the entire family. Decent humor and fun action sequences that would make your time worthwhile but when it comes to the story department, one feels the Marvel is just running out of ideas.
The Ant-Man is kept under house arrest for three years in the aftermath of Civil War, he tries to keep himself content by learning magic and spending the weekends with his daughter Cassie. That’s when he gets drawn into a surprise new mission by Hope Van Dyne and Hank Pym.
Ant-Man and the Wasp largely is a family film than anything else, and it is all about a family reunion. With lots of scientific terminologies being explained, the film has a very simple yet interesting writing to it.
Paul Rudd jumps into this suit that can make him really small, but this time a malfunction causes him to grow huge which creates some excitement towards the end. Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, the scientist who invented the substance that can change sizes, is trying hard to find his wife and the Ant-Man comes to his aid when needed.
It's a very straightforward story but it is made to look complicated. The screenplay has a bunch of stories running parallel before converging it all to one point. Ant-man has lots of engaging moments to rejoice but unfortunately, the film might not connect that emotionally well with some, maybe because of a not-so-exciting storyline. At no point, there is a super-high moment that you expect in a super-hero film, which affects the engagement.
All that said, the film is filled with action sequences and lots of organic comedy. In fact, one might even feel the makers have overstuffed the film with action sequences.
