The only thing i can say about this movie is Holy freaking moley this movie was AWESOME!! When i first heard about it, i'm thinking, "Why are they making a movie about a, not necessarily lesser superhero, but one not quite as well known". Well today i found out why.
When Paul Rudd was announced as "Ant-man" I was extremely skeptical as he's mostly done comedies, not many real serious parts. I love his comedies. I love you Man was my favorite of his. He stole the show in Ant-man. He successfully fused his comedic genius with the seriousness of the movie. A masterful performance. He definitely deserves an award for this.
Michael Douglas did a great job as Dr. Hank Pym, in the beginning of the movie was thinking that Bryan Cranston,
would have done better, but by the end of the movie, I was thoroughly convinced they chose the right man for the job. He pulls off the intimidation factor needed as well as the master/mentor needed to guide Scott Lang to become Ant-man.
Now here is a choice that i was not sure was going to work out very well. As I've seen him in other movies, but ones I've never watched twice. Then came along House of Cards and though he did an awesome job as Peter Russo, i was still unsure so to whether or not he would pull off Yellow Jacket. But, again, after seeing the movie, i was convinced they could not have found a better person to play opposite Paul Rudd/Ant-man. He pulls off the crazy psychotic bad guy a little too well.
Evangeline Lilly plays Hank Pym's daughter Hope Van Dyne. I don't remember much about her in the comics, but Lilly gives a passionate performance, and after her role in The Hobbit as the beautiful elf Tauriel, I would expect no less.
There is an awesome cameo from Anthony Mackie as Falcon
I wish i could put more than 10 stars on this review. I will most definitely go to see this more than once in theaters. Stay after ALL the credits, there 2 scenes. One eluding to the next Ant-man and one eluding to Captain America 3: Civil War. I really want to tell you what it is but i don't want to spoil it!!! I'm so excited for the coming months/years as the Marvel Universe expands beyond belief!
Go see this movie, you know me, if i'm willing to see it more than once in theaters, it's worth seeing at least once!!!
