Ant-Man is by no stretch of the imagination Marvel’s most popular or exciting character. He’s not Spider-Man, Iron Man or Captain America by a long-shot. Hell when this film was announced movie enthusiast didn’t even understand why Marvel Studios was making this movie.
Comic book enthusiast know the importance of Ant-Man to the Avengers as Hank Pym is one of the founder members of the super team. Director Peyton Reed manages to shine a light on one of Marvel’s goofiest characters and Paul Rudd injects life into the character in only way he knows how with witty humor.
Ant-Man opens up in the year 1989, a much younger Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) walking into a gathering with some familiar faces. At the round table sits Tony Stark’s father Howard Stark (John Slattery), Peggy Carter a.k.a. Agent Carter and Mitchell Carson ( Martin Donovan). Pym is clearly not too happy with his friends at S.H.I.E.L.D. who want to weaponize his shrinking substance named Pym Particles. The meeting doesn’t end well with Pym vowing that he will never let his suit or Pym Particle get in their hands. Pay attention folks as this will come up later in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
We zap to the present and we are introduced to Pym’s former protege, now head of Pym Industries Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) . He is on the verge of replicating Pym’s formula which is not a good thing at all. Pym’s daughter Hope (Evangeline Lilly) is secretly keeping an eye on Cross for her dad. Eventually Cross cracks the code and figures out how to make his own shrinking formula much to the dismay of Pym.
Stoll decides to sell his formula and the Yellowjacket suit to the notorious bad guys in the Marvel universe Hydra.
That’s where Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) comes into the picture. Lang is a reformed burglar, who doesn’t like to be called a robber because he hates violence. He is determined to walk the straight path and stray away from his criminal ways. Lang wants to be able to see his daughter again, but his mean ex-wife who is ironically married to a hard-nosed cop Paxton (Bobby Cannavale) won’t allow him until he has better living arrangements. Scott gets a job at Baskin Robbins apparently the go to place for felons to work but he is ultimately fired cause of criminal past. As they all joke in the movie Baskin Robbin’s finds out everything.With no options left Lang turns back to his old ways, he takes a job proposed to him by his hilarious criminal buddies Luis (Michael Pena),Dave (T.I.) and Kurt (David Dastmalchian) to break into the house of old millionaire scientist Pym and crack his safe.
Lang has no idea Pym set the whole thing up, he’s actually being tested by Pym so he can be a part of an even greater heist with some large implications in the balance.
Pym is now too old to don the Ant-Man suit, he offers Lang the opportunity of a lifetime and in the process see his daughter again.
Hope hates the idea and insists that she should be the one to pull off the daring heist by wearing the suit by her dad wants no parts of that idea and for good reason too. Reluctant at first, Lang realizes he has nothing to lose and decides to take the job and the training sequence begins.
Ant-Man isn’t your typical superhero film and that’s a good thing, it’s more of a heist movie with a superhero twist. Reed manages to keep the feel of a Marvel film in the M.C.U (Marvel Cinematic Universe) but also separates his film from the rest. Ant-Man’s transitions from full-size to shrinking work flawlessly and if you see the film in IMAX it almost feels as if you’re shrinking with Lang. His insect compatriots, as creepy as they are when he is small, will ultimately grow on you and you will come to love them in the film as the movie goes on. The action in the film though not in abundance is enough, again we point out this is a heist movie. The final climatic battle though is definitely one for the ages with some hilarious twists as both Ant-Man and Yellowjacket battle out on toy train set in Lang’s daughter’s room.
Ant-Man also does manage to squeeze in a lot of Marvel easter eggs and there is a great cameo from a particular Avenger so keep your eyes open for them. Ant-Man is definitely in a class by itself and stands out more than Avengers: Age of Ultron. We highly recommend you check out this film its the perfect blend of comedy, action and just all things Marvel. If you can dish out the extra bucks to see it in IMAX, it’s totally worth it.
Pssssssss stick around around after the credits for an awesome goodie!
