Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

An outlier that, for the most part, benefits from having relative autonomy from the rest of Marvel Studios' serialized world-building. As a result, it felt less like bloated television finale, and refreshingly, more like like the '90s, action-comedy, family films from Disney I grew up on as a kid. It also proves to me that for Marvel, smaller is better (no pun intended).
With a shell of a story, ANT MAN relies on the charms of its actors and its groovy macro cinematography to suck you in. Paul Rudd's "coming of age" as a father and the parallel with his mentor/boss Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is on the nose, but it's just emotionally resonant enough to carry the film. Although there are small laughs along the way, I was surprised that the film could have but didn't go for bigger ones.
Exhibit B alongside "Guardians" that Marvel is at their best when providing light but idiosyncratic comic book entertainment. There's no denying that the most inventive bits here are likely holdovers from Edgar Wright's draft (The Cure's "Plainsong," anyone?), but Paul Rudd turns up the charm and the film links to "Avengers" continuity without feeling convoluted. This may be summer 2015's most pleasant surprise.
Ant-Man is yet another bog-standard MCU film; it's somewhat fun, yet suffers from the lack of a compelling villain. In this case Wright's script gets to shine even if his particular style of visual comedy is absent (obviously). Hence, it looks different by the nature of its hero's powers of size reduction, but it's not very cinematically inventive in using this or in any other way.
Poorly written, played and directed, yet had the chance to watch it with my baby love. Thefefore, 3 stars for the sake of love. And for the sake of that lovely tune: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NgKGX4jl_8
Mizahı zayıf, hikaye bir çizgi roman filmine göre oldukça ağır. İlk yarım saati sanki dram filmi gibiydi. Çizgi roman filmleri bu realiteyi kaldırmaz. Hele böyle bir kahramanla asla olmaz o işler. Daha sulu ve kendisini bu kadar ciddiye almayan bir film izlemeliydik.
Has a few flaws but is great anyway. It's hard to tell how much better Edgar Right's directorial take would have been considering the fact he did the pre-viz scenes, it has the same cast and similar script and the movie has many obvious touches and themes present in his previous work. My guess it would have been better but that's no reason to hate on a fine piece of work. The cast is outstanding, all get to shine
Marvel adds some fun to its universe with this summer popcorn film that introduces another iconic character to the growing roster. Unlike other efforts of late this one actually feels like a comic adaptation with stellar action, great set pieces and effects, and a healthy dose of humour. Rudd acquaints himself well with able support from Douglas and Lily. One can well see the signature of Edgar Wright here though.
