DisEnvy at the Movies: Ant-Man


Riddled with production problems, switching directors, and scrapping original screenplay, and a lesser known character this movie was being looked at by many as Marvel's first failure.However, this movie exceeded all expectations.  

Paul Rudd plays Scott Lang who is an ex convict hired by Michael Douglas' Dr. Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, to help him recover an item that is near to his heart from Darren Cross, played by Corey Stoll. His daughter, Hope van Dyne (played by Evangeline Lilly), doesn't like this idea and wants to be in the Ant -Man suit herself. 

This movie is a perfect blend of action and comedy. Sup tingly there are alot of  heart felt moments between Scott and his daughter, and Hank & Hope. This is one of the more solid stories Marvel has put out in recent years, and a good way to end phase three of MCU. 

As the first real test for Scott happens, we see the true fighting power Ant-Man has and what his abilities are capable of. The fights between Yellowjacket and Ant-Man are well choreographed, and even have solid humor sprinkled throughout. 

It should also be noted to stay for the two post credit scenes. One happens actually mid credits, after the man cast, and the second is al the way at the tail. 

Although not the most successful Marvel Movie to date, Ant-Man is all about heart and sacrifice. And I would recommend this movie to anyone. 

8/10
