I was looking forward to another heist film set with superheroes. The first Ant-Man was such a change of pace and I love how within the Marvel studios they have seemed to make some of their films sub-genre films. For example, Ant-Man was a heist film, Winter Soldier was a political Thriller. This follow up while still being a really good superhero film just lost some of the magic that made the first one special. I love the attempt and saw what they were trying to do but throughout the film. However, they would set things up to make the audience think that these stakes were going to be good and then ten minutes later they would do something that would cheapen it.
The film rides on the shoulders of Paul Rudd and he is really enjoyable to watch. Some of the best parts of the film are watching the chemistry between him and Evangeline Lilly. She is the one who is kicking some major ass in the film and is a driving force in most of the action sequences. Hannah John Karen as Ghost was cool looking on screen but other than that she was just a lack luster villain.
While Ant-Man and Wasp is a visually stunning film, it drops the ball for me on story. Cinema Wise gives Ant-Man and Wasp a 3.25 out of 5. I wanted to like the film more than I actually did.
