So, Ant-Man is a 2015, Superhero, Action Film, directed by: Peyton Reed. Starring: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stroll, Michael Peña and Michael Douglas.
Ex-Special Operative and Ex-CEO of his own company, Hank Pym (Douglas) and his daughter, Hope Van Dyne (Lilly) must stop and steal back dangerous technology from Pym's busniess apprentice, Darren Cross (Stroll). To do this, they enlist the help of loving father, battling child support and burglar, Scott Lang (Rudd) by giving him the same technological suit that allows the wearer to shrink.
This film, I was very sceptical about because of the behind the scenes drama, but ended up loving it anyways.
I love the character of Lang. He's very different to the other heroes because he is a father and he was a criminal. But the fact he's been given a second chance and doesn't waste it, is actually very inspiring. He is also insanely funny. The entire cast is really, with Peña stealing the spotlight as Luis, Lang's best friend. The visuals of the "Ant-Man Suit" are spectacular also. The shrinking scenes were very entertaining and fun which I'm glad they went that way.
The villain. Another SHOCKER. He felt like an Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges, Iron Man) rip-off. In terms of a businessman with technology. Also the actors performances felt a bit forced. Not all of the jokes landed quite as well. And at the back of my head I was saying to myself "I wonder what the Edgar Wright film would've been like". Due to creative differences, Wright left the project and Reed stepped in.
In the end, I loved this film because it was a different kind of hero in this visually appealing film in an underrated Marvel movie. I'll give Ant-Man an A
