Movie Review: Ant-Man and the Wasp

While not as stupendous as the first film, Ant-Man and the Wasp was still quite entertaining. Just the fact that it had a much smaller narrative - you know, with the entire universe not at stake this time - was a nice reprieve from all of the chaos from Avengers: Infinity War.

The visuals were, as usual, pretty impressive, the action sequences were both playful and stunning, the writing for the most part was clever and delivered with just the right amount of intensity, and the multiple comedic moments that ranged from situational slapstick to well-timed quips were quite good. Michael Pena's bit, in particular, was both brilliant and hysterical.

That said, I had a couple of quibbles with the film. I found the excessive amount of subplot frustratingly messy that it almost pulled me out of the actual narrative, the sporadic shifting of tone took away the emotional heft that they were going for, and the villains were a mixed bag - Ghost was intriguing at first, but didn't develop in anything else, while the other one felt almost inconsequential.

Ant-Man and the Wasp sure had its fair share of flaws and it wasn't a particularly jaw dropping experience I've had in the past, especially with a Marvel film, yet it still felt like a good and fun summer blockbuster.

Oh, and the first end credit scene was just..
