Hank and Hope grudgingly reunite with Scott in an attempt to rescue Janet from the quantum realm, but their efforts are dogged by a mysterious figure who can phase in and out of existence and a greedy industrialist attempting to steal their technology.
This is as succinct as I can make the synopsis of the plot to this sequel to the enjoyably self-deprecating Ant-Man, and its clunkiness is a reflection of the main flaw of the film. The three plot threads run in parallel, never really intertwining into a single narrative making the story feel more like an episode of Catch The Pigeon than interesting drama.

All that is back and more - so if you liked it the first time around, the second is just as good.
Our sequel picks up nearly two years after the events of Civil War. Scott Lang (Rudd) is just days away from the end of his house arrest. The opening sequence shows him playing with his daughter, Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson) in an elaborate cardboard dungeon. His pal, Luis (Peña - who still gets all the best …
