Has it really been three years since the release of “Ant-Man?”
When I saw “Ant-Man” three years ago, I knew nothing about it at all. But I wound up loving it. I enjoyed the light-hearted adventure and the humor, mixed with Marvel’s perfect balance of action. I was so upset to see that the screening of the sequel, Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” that we were invited to fell during our family vacation. Lucky for us, I have Ashley, who was more than willing to go see this movie in my place and review it for you! Check out what Ashley has to say about Marvel’s newest film and then go see it for yourself!
Ashley’s Review of Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp
When someone thinks of a Marvel movie, they tend to associate the film with doom and gloom. And even possibly, a super serious atmosphere with not a lot of humorous moments. But just like with the first Ant-Man, Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp” did not disappoint. “Ant-Man and the Wasp” took the humor that we grew to love in the first movie and intensified it, so much so that when you aren’t paying attention to the villain, you are focused on the jokes and the humor and the chemistry that all these characters have together.
One of the things I liked best about “Ant-Man and the Wasp” was that the film kept a great pace. Any parts of the movie that needed build-up, were absolutely worth it. The movie did not feel rushed or like any one particular part was taking forever. Marvel did a good job of giving us something on the happier side to focus on considering everything already going on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe right now. But that does not mean that we don’t still have a villain to worry about! The heroes are evenly matched by their villainous counterpart, to the point where I was even worried for them at times!
“Ant-Man and the Wasp” will also catch you up to the current state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so be prepared! This new Marvel film is definitely a family-friendly film. If you love Marvel movies and any of the humor and the action that was in the first Ant-Man, you will definitely be pleased with “Ant-Man and Wasp.” I know we were!
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes “Ant Man and The Wasp,” a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink.
