Review

Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) returns in a story of hope and new chances. After the events of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang has given up being the Ant-Man to focus on raising his daughter and starting a new business. Estranged from him, Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) have been working underground in a personal project, until an urgent mission emerges and they are forced to team up with Lang once more.

In this sequel, Hope Van Dyne absolutely steals the show. We had already seen how brilliant she is, but in this story, she fully explodes her skills as a fighter, a tech genius, and hero. In a fight scene that takes place in a kitchen, action meets comedy delivering the kind of exhilarating scenes we always expect from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Peyton Reed’s movie has everything we love about Ant-Man; Family bonds, friendship, witty gags and thrilling action. There are not many new elements added to the story, but that is not necessary a bad thing. In simple terms, it means that if you liked the first movie, you are going to like this one too. Reed brings us the characters and elements we already love, now more mature. Like a bottle of good wine, the Ant-Man franchise has gotten better with time. The villain has a credible, realistic, relatable reason to be in conflict with our heroes. There is no “end of the world” scenario, no villain seeking world domination, but the situations this movie presents are critical and life-threatening for the characters. A conflict that shares a resemblance with the one in Spider-Man: Homecoming, where the villain was a working-class man trying to support his family, and the final confrontation was intimate, small, yet immensely significative to those involved.

After the heartbreaking end of Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp comes to cheer us up with an entertaining, heart-warming and exciting story. Are you watching Ant-Man and the Wasp this weekend?

Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) absolutely steals the show.
