Review: Ant-Man

by - July 20, 2015

As Marvel continue to dominate the silver screen Jim and I headed out to watch the newest release this weekend, that superhero everyone always wanted there to be a film of...

12A | 1h 57min | Sci-Fi/Action


Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is struggling return to life outside of prison and finding it difficult to provide for his daughter and get access to her. He turns back to a life of crime in order to make some money but upon breaking into Dr. Hank Pym's (Michael Douglas) house all he finds is a strange suit. Scott quickly get's caught up in a battle to keep an incredible piece of technology out of the baddies (Hyrda's) hands and must become the Ant-Man. It'll take all his courage and burglary skills to pull off one last heist. 


My Thoughts:
I have to say I wasn't expecting too much from this movie, why? because it feels like the cinema is being monopolised by the "Marvel Machine" and when I first heard that they were releasing Ant-Man my only though was - really?!


Well, I certainly was surprised, this is a great movie! It has everything you want; plenty of action, an easy story to follow, a hero with an emotional motive and a bit of gentle comedy. Paul Rudd's portrayal of Scott Lang was excellent, he was quick witted and a likeable lead and Evangeline Lilly (my new favourite actress since The Hobbit) did a great job as the strong, confident female lead. The storyline was easy to follow with a nod to other films within the Marvel franchise (the Avenger's of course) and was emotive enough to be believable. The comedy of the movie kept a good balance with the action and the scene's where Luis (Michael Peña) explains how he gathers his information are hilarious! 
This is a great film whether you're a group of teenagers, a couple or a full family so get yourselves down to your local cinema and give it a watch! Oh, don't forget  to hang around till the very end of the credits for a sneak peak at Avenger's Civil War.

  1. I saw a behind the scenes special on Sky movies and at first I thought it was weird, but the special effects look so cool and it took them 2 years to finish this movie, which says a lot!I am really looking forward to watching this :)

  2. I've seen the trailer a lot while at the movies, but it didn't really light a spark for me. Will maybe check it out when it comes on dvd :)


  3. Agreed! I wasn't expecting too much from this movie, since I'm not a huge "superhero" fan. All in all I really liked it, and I'm happy I went to go see it!
