To begin with, I. AM. THE. BIGGEST. MARVEL FAN. I see EVERYTHING that Marvel does (MCU). TV SHOWS (Including AoS), One-Shots, and movies in the format they're meant to be seen, IMAX 3D. And I have to say that, Ant-Man continues the streak of amazing Marvel films. This movie is nothing short of AWESOME!
I was a bit skeptical about this for two reasons. One is Edgar Wright leaving the project because he didn't want to connect it to the MCU. Also, there were too many writers involved with this movie, so the script COULD be convoluted. But it isn't.
The movie has a great cast. First off, Paul Rudd is fantastic as Scott Lang. His lines are great and he's an hilarious character. The villain, YELLOWJACKET, is a great villain. Usually, marvel villains aren't really good. But he is a great villain (But not as good as Ultron, that remains the best PHASE 2 villain). He is VERY menacing. Evangeline Lily and Michael Douglas are great. They both have great chemistry together. Michael Douglas plays the original Ant-Man and he is GREAT! Michael Peña, who I thought that he was gonna be HORRIBLE (The IMAX footage before Jurassic World misguided me). He was FUNNY AS HELL! His jokes hit and they are SPOT-ON. Especially a very memorable sequence. Bobby Cannavalle is good as well.
The action scenes in this movie are AMAZING!!!!! They are so original and are best seen in IMAX 3D. Everytime Ant-Man shrinks, you're sucked into the tiny world and when he enlarges, you're in the real world and it's balanced PERFECTLY! His ability is AWESOME and the 3D is WAAAAAAAAY better than Guardians Of The Galaxy. And that's saying a lot. The action scenes are epic and badass, especially a fight scene with a certain avenger... The whole 30 minute finale is amazing and super-immersive. See it in IMAX guys, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
I really didn't know how they would tie-in this film to the MCU. First off, the movie begins in 1989, in THE TRISKELLION with HOWARD STARK AND PEGGY CARTER, HOW ABOUT THAT. THERE IS A FIGHT WITH THE FALCON, A SPIDERMAN REFERENCE (YES!) and two AMAZING POST CREDIT SCENES!
STAY FOR THE END CREDITS GUYS!
This is the best MCU film. I say that now EVERYTIME! BUT IT'S TRUE! THIS MOVIE IS AWESOME! And so far, it's my favorite film of the year.
