"Ant-Man And The Wasp" Movie Review
As we continue to recover from the devastating conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and The Wasp fly in to fill the void, and they do so with fun, comedic, and entertaining fashion. No, Ant-Man and the Wasp is not a profound entry in the MCU, but it serves as an upbeat note to leave on before the one-two punch of Captain Marvel and Infinity War 2 next year.
Much of Ant-Man 2 is what we're familiar with in previous Marvel movies; lots of action, MCU references, and some great comedic moments, like when Michael Peña's character is injected with Truth Serum and recounts way more than what the interrogators wanted. But what sets the Ant-Man segment of the MCU apart is the pure charisma of Paul Rudd. He helps uphold so much of the entertainment value of the film.
Ant-Man 2 inserts a shocking mid-credits scene that at least hints at its relevance to Infinity War 2. The rest of the film is simply a fun adventure meant to inform audiences more about these characters rather than deliver a profound narrative. Take it for what it is; a small component of a much bigger world.
