Summary

Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) recruits Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a master thief just released from prison to become Ant-Man. Trained by Pym the miniature hero must use his new skills to prevent Cross from using the same technology as a weapon for evil.

Is The Plot Interesting? 

Not only does the movie have great action sequences but it also has emotional weight surrounding Scott Lang and his daughter. I really enjoyed watching their relationship grow.

Is The Acting Good?

Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas are good in Ant-Man. They show who their characters are really well. Evangeline Lilly and Michael Pena also add a lot to the movie; it wouldn’t be the same without them.

Is The Directing Good?

Ant-Man is a bit different to the other movies Peyton Reed has directed but that doesn’t mean that this genre doesn’t suit him, because it does. I can’t imagine a better director for this movie.

Is The Cinematography Good?

The way the movie’s action sequences are filmed show us just how Ant-Man is in proportion to everything else, like a toy train. The final sequence in the bedroom is the best for this.

Is It Worth Watching?

Marvel surprised me yet again. Ant-Man is a good movie that involves characters that I hadn’t really heard of… but it worked. And you could watch Ant-Man without any knowledge about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

4/5
