What distinguishes Ant-Man and The Wasp from your run of the mill superhero flicks is the humor. Thanks to a smart script that connects all the dots and the scene-stealing antics of Michael Pena this movie rocks. Fun Special effects, impeccable acting, superb timing and a cast of believable if not maniacal villains and heroes with a superb science fiction backdrop come together to make this film an absolute charmer fit for all ages.
Made in 3-D the film also boasts some big name co-stars integral to the plot , an add on scene part-way through the closing credits that you most definitely should stay for and perhaps a few choice words from Stan the Man himself . All told look for a third Ant Man movie to be green-lit as we speak. Yes, this little film with heart packs a king-sized wallop.
