I had to watch it twice & NOT because it was so nice.The 1st time I watched Ant-Man I fell asleep in the middle & woke up when it was about over.When I woke up I wasn't going to give it a 2nd chance but I did anyway.This time I was able to stay awake.The 2nd time watching it was better than the 1st.I wasn't as bored but the movie felt like it dragged on & on & on.1 of the best things about Ant-Man were the scenes with Abby Ryder Fortson & Paul Rudd (I could watch those over & over again) Also the special effects were just awesome.I loved how things that were small were made BIG & things that were BIG were made small.The fight between Ant-Man & Yellowjacket was my favorite part of the movie.I won't even go into it.You just have to see it for yourself.Even though the only thing I truly …

"My days of breaking into places and stealing shit are done.
What do you want me to do?
I want you to break into a place and steal some shit."
Is it a plane? Is it a bird? Is it Superman? No, it's just an ordinary guy named Scott Lang (Rudd Paul) who stole from some millionaires in a digital, Robin Hood-like way in the past and who can transform into a superhero the size of an ant by using a high-tech suit. This suit was designed by Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and reduces the distance between atoms. Thus, it's not a spider bite or the exposure to certain radiations that created Ant-man. Is it so super hero-like, say, like Spiderman? Yes and no. I don't think there's need for a sequel. The overall content is a bit too ... euh ... I could say a bit to "little" for that. But the …

Ant-Man (2015) PG-13 Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is a car burglar who is hand-picked by Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to become Ant-Man. Ant-Man can decrease in size but, also, can increase in strength. I enjoyed this film that is more in the vein of Guardians of the Galaxy with the amount of humor in it and the hero of the story who is dependent on his wits, rather than a superpower. I liked Rudd in the role, as he has a smart-ass quality to him, but not so much that you don’t like him. He plays off of both Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly (who plays the daughter of Dr. Pym), and there are some real sparks between Lilly and Rudd. Corey Stoll plays the villain well, bringing just enough menace to the role to make it enjoyable to watch. The action sequences are fast moving and …

When Ant-Man was announced, I was skeptical, but the fact Edgar Wright was on board gave me hope. When Wright left the project due to creative differences, I was upset. But even though Ant-Man have been given the short shrift compared to other Marvel films, it turns out Ant-Man can certainly hold his own against the mightiest of Avengers.
Ant-Man really reminds me of the original Iron Man - it has a good blend of action and humor. I like to think a lot of that still had to do with Wright's original script - I think his influence can still be felt. I was also worried that Paul Rudd wouldn't be able to play a convincing super hero lead, but that doubt was misplaced as well. Rudd manages to pull the role off quite well, with that trademark deadpan humor that works surprisingly well for …

Scott Lang/Ant-Man: "Hello. I'm Ant-Man. Haven't you heard of me? No, you wouldn't have heard of me".
The story to Ant-Man is about Scott Lang who has worked alongside his friend and mentor Dr. Hank Pym but has never truly asserted himself. Now, armed with a suit that shrinks him in size but greatly increases his strength, Lang, now dubbed Ant-Man, will have to find the hero inside himself in order to pull off a heist that may very well be the key to saving the world.
The tiny superhero himself Ant-Man was originally going to be directed by the comedy genius himself Edgar Wright. Everyone and I do mean everyone was hyped about his next upcoming movie since this is the same guy who brought us such films as Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. But one day we all got the sad news that …

Ant-Man – Rating – 8 out of 10
Ant Man is possibly a good addition to the Avengers’ clan. As the name suggests, he is neither regular-sized not Super-sized hero – He is small – yet powerful.
While this cannot be compared with the grandeur of Avengers movie, the special effects must be given a lot of credit. The special effects are excellent to such an extent that you forget your hero is ant-sized.
Here we have a superhero who shrinks and grows back at blink of an eye. He fights the bad guy’s similar prototype and saves the world from annihilation.
The story is simple but very fast paced which ensures that you are at the edge of your seat throughout. There are very little dull moments but you can easily live …

'Ant-Man' is Marvel's latest, and possibly last, origin movie. We are treated to a smaller scale story (no pun intended). There's no saving the world for this outing, only stopping a potential threat that could eventually lead to a future catastrophe. Equal screen time is given between character development, backstory, humor, and action. The three main players of Scott, Hank, and Hope are the basic focus of the entire movie. Their eventual bonding is worth the investment. No other characters receive near as much presence or development, including the villain. The rest are sideline to their specific genre tropes, but they do so in a non-annoying and often funny fashion. There's much good humor throughout. I did laugh out loud on multiple occasions. Characters never hesitate to …
