Ant-Man and the Wasp: A Big Upgrade from the First


“Ant-Man and the Wasp” takes place 2 years after Captain America:Civil War and a little bit before Infinity War.  The movie gets to the plot almost immediately unlike the first movie. “Ant-Man and the Wasp” opens with Scott Lang(Paul Rudd) under house arrest when suddenly he starts to gets visions of the quantum realm.  This causes him to call Dr. Pym(Michael Douglas) and Hope Pym(Evangeline Lilly) sending them on an adventure of a lifetime.   

There are new characters such as Ghost, Bill Foster, Sonny Burch, and Jimmy Woo.  The movie is set in San Francisco, California.  The movie is 2 hours and 5 minutes long and rated PG-13.        

Scott Lang is Ant-Man and a father at the same time.  He works hard to entertain his daughter while he runs a company called XCON with his convict friends from his home.  When Scott learns he has to become Ant-Man again, it comes into conflict with the fact that he has to help his family and friends and he is just days away from getting off of a house arrest caused by  the last time he did superhero work.  Paul Rudd is a compelling character with a laidback personality. Evangeline Lilly did a great job portraying Hope Pym.  Hope Pym wants to enter the quantum realm and get what she needs to do it as the Wasp.  Dr. Pym is the opposite of Scott and is very serious. Ghost is a character with a mysterious past and ties to the quantum realm.    Laurence Fishburne was great as Professor Bill Foster, another mysterious character.  Michael Peña returns as the ever humorous Luis

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” was a fast paced movie, but not confusing. There were some twists but not any humongous story changing twists.    

Whenever Ant-Man would shrink or grow they made it look very cool.  It made it look like other outlines of his body that would get smaller or larger as he quickly grew or reduced in size.  “Ant-Man and the Wasp” is one of the funniest superhero movies that I have seen.  The movie was funnier than the first and had more action and story. 

In “Ant-Man and the Wasp” the main villains backstory could have been explained a little bit better.

Therefore, “Ant-Man and the Wasp” is a movie that I would recommend to all my friends.  It is worth the money and you can still watch it if you haven’t seen the first film.  “Ant-Man and the  Wasp” is an excellent movie overall.
