Ant-Man (2015)

[rating=4]

Everybody is wondering what in the hell Marvel is thinking by introducing a character named Ant-Man to their cinematic universe? Well, even in the movie, they poke fun at the name and the ability of Scott Lang, the main protagonist of the film. And…it works! Ant-Man is a very exciting film and brings a very well-crafted character into a Marvel world filled with #Avengers and Ultrons and Thanoses and Thors. In fact, there’s a scene where a New Avenger is confronted by Ant-Man and the results are embarrassing enough to look the other way when revealing to Captain America.

The premise of the film is simple: It’s an introduction to the character, a lesser-known, to the world where Batman, Superman and Iron Man reign supreme. But in the same way the Guardians of the Galaxy became a huge hit from virtual unknowns, Disney/Marvel hope the same for Ant-Man (@antman). Hank Pym, the creator of the Ant-Man suit is being challenged by his former apprentice after he recreates his revolutionary formula. The apprentice, Darren Cross, becomes The Yellowjacket and of course, a small fight breaks out between hero and villain. The thing is, this movie works really well and is a LOT of fun!

The special effects in this really work as the visual to reduce Paul Rudd from 6-foot something into a tiny version of himself is smooth. The training session of going from large to small all while fighting was intriguing but even more interesting was when they put it all in play. Everything balanced out very well and Ant-Man will be a great addition to the Marvel Universe.

Don’t forget to view the mid-ending credits to see what’s in store for the future. Evangeline Lilly (@evangelinelilly) looks like #hulksmash material and Michael Douglas does his thing as usual. Comic relief in the form of Michael Pe‚àö¬±a (@realmichaelpena), T.I. (@tip), and David Dastmalchian rounds out the crew. Check it out twice because I think it’s worth it. Yup!
