Ant-Man Movie Review

Ant-Man Movie Review
Ready for your next Marvel movie fix?

If you haven't seen Ant-Man, it is definitely one you will want to watch soon.  In true Marvel style, good must conquer evil or the world will suffer.

One of the things I enjoy most about the Marvel movies is that they always choose the right actors to play the superheroes and villains.  Ant-Man is no exception.  Paul Rudd is the perfect actor to play the part of Ant-man.  Plus, Micheal Douglas stars as the extraordinarily intelligent inventor of the Ant-Man suit and shrinking abilities.

This movie also introduces us to the chosen actress to play the part of The Wasp.  Evangeline Lilly is awesome and I definitely look forward to seeing The Ant-Man and The Wasp Marvel Movie that released on July 6, 2018. 

UPDATE: I have now seen Ant-Man and The Wasp and have reviewed it Here: Ant-Man and The Wasp Movie Review

Plot of Antman - The Movie

(not the comic version)

Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) invented the Ant-man and the ability to shrink a man into the size of an ant.  Dr. Pym was in fact the first Ant-Man.  However, seeing how Ant-Man would be exploited and knowing there were others already trying to replicate his technology, Dr. Pym elected to resign, take the Ant-Man suit in order to safely hide it and his technology.  

 Ant-Man (Plus Bonus Features)The movie fast-tracks to current day where Darren Cross, his former mentee, is too close to replicating Pym's technology.  It is evident to Dr. Pym that it is time to act.  He carefully selects his successor, Scott Lang.  He has been watching Lang for some time, ever since he successfully stole money back from VistaCorp and returned the money to their victims.  Since Lang has a master's degree in electrical engineering as well as a vigilante mentality, Pym believes he will make the perfect Ant-Man.  

Dr. Pym and his daughter, Hope, train Scott Lang to work with ants and to become Ant-Man in preparation to "defeat" Darren Cross and his Yellowjacket invention.  The ants in the movie are also incredible!  They make a magnificent team.

This is a MUST SEE BEFORE you go to the theater to watch Ant-Man and The Wasp!

Marvel fans love Avengers: Infinity War!  All of our favorite Avengers, plus the Guardians of the Galaxy join the battle to save the world from evil domination and genocide by Thanos.

The movie Doctor Strange is based on the Marvel comics character. A fabulous fantasy fiction movie that is quite accurate with the depiction.

Guardians of the Galaxy is a truly fabulous Marvel movie that I would recommend for anyone! The movie is a mix of sci-fi, great animation, engaging stories, & witty dialog.

  1. We have loved all of the Marvel Movies so far, I wasn't really looking forward to watching Ant Man but I know my husband is. Now, you have piqued my interest with this one.

    1. Oh, I think you will like it Bev! You appreciate animals and creatures. I feel pretty sure you will like the ants and the movie.

  2. Another interesting sounding Marvel movie. Who would have thought an ant could become a superhero! Loved your review Sylvestermouse.

    1. Thank you Elf! I normally prefer that a movie stick to the original story, but I actually prefer the movie character over the comic character in Ant-Man.

  3. I love how you always surprise me with your eclectic movie and music tastes and reviews. You are an enigma! I can see how ants would make the perfect superheroes. I don't believe I have ever seen a Marvel movie. I feel boring compared to you. I'm glad you are here to stretch my horizons and prod me to get a bit more daring.

    1. roflol! You are not the first person in my life to make that observation. I suspect that is true because of the large family I was blessed to be born into. As the middle child, I was a part of everyone's life, their activities, their choices. The only thing I was never able to embrace and appreciate, tomatoes! I hate tomatoes, but fear not. There are plenty of tomato eating volunteers in the family.

  4. I haven't watched that many movies of late. I find most of the offerings not to my liking at all, but this one sounds quite good. I love it when the actor really takes on the persona of his character. This sounds like a movie I would enjoy a lot. Thank you for the recommendation.

  5. It hasn't occurred to me to watch this, but honestly you make it sound interesting and now I want to see it. If you enjoyed it, there's a good chance I will as well.

  6. You are making me want to watch ALL the Marvels now!
