Watched this Ant-Man and the Wasp over the weekend. And to be honest, this one was a breath of fresh air since Infinity War.
I got a chance to see this film in 3D, and for the most part, the visuals are very impressive, and I do recommend seeing it in that format. The conflict in this movie is on a much smaller scale (no pun intended) compared to Infinity War, where the events don’t involve the whole world being in peril unlike other superhero films. Ghost isn’t another one-dimensional villain; there’s more layers to her character and for the most part there’s a lot of interesting things to her. I’d also like to mention for a movie with a runtime of 1h and 58m, this moves pretty fast; there’s no breaks, and that’s good. I think it keeps the audience engaged in a way.
Now there a few negatives in this movie, one; Walter Goggins’ role in this movie is not necessarily needed. I get that his purpose is to give some more weight to the overall plot as our heroes have a goal, but I felt he wasn’t needed in this movie. If Ghost was the main antagonist instead of him, she would serve the story better. Given all the many circumstances in this film, a few subplots could be removed, and it would have been more cohesive. Another complaint I have is that this movie can ruin great moments with comedy (a typical complaint I have with most MCU films), where the scene could have had a more serious tone to the film.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is a good sequel to its predecessor. I find the first one better, but this one was good too, but I felt there were too many subplots and humour that felt ruined some moments. I would say it’s worth seeing, and now I pass the question onto you; what is your take on this movie? I’d like to know your thoughts of it in the comments below.
