Ant-Man is a bracing, giddy delight. It’s a comedy, and a neoclassical one, more closely related to Alfred Hitchcock’s “To Catch a Thief” and to hectically skimpy B-movies than to the other members of the Marvel family. It’s the non-bombastic superhero movie.

The movie, directed by Peyton Reed (“Down With Love,” “Bring It On”) and starring Paul Rudd, isn’t exactly or entirely fluffy, but it’s pretty damn agile, and as a result provides the most pure, uncomplicated fun, and even joy, of any Marvel picture I’ve seen.

In its very best moments, the film zings with an Aardman-esque zaniness that feels like pure Wright, even if his replacement as director, Peyton Reed, wisely resists the temptation to mimic his predecessor’s hyper-caffeinated visual style. But Ant-Man’s troubled genesis barely registers in the finished product.

What are people saying?

  • Trevor Tillman's rating of the film Ant-Man

    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).

  • Addy K.'s rating of the film Ant-Man

    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 many well-earned giggles, I was surprised that the film could've but didn't go for bigger laughs.

  • Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Ant-Man

    Surprisingly fun! There are some really creative action choices near the end of the film and the villain is very convincingly menacing. If it veered further from its boilerplate action/adventure plot formula it could've easily been one of my favorite popcorn movies of the decade.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Ant-Man

    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.

  • T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Ant-Man

    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.

  • Sefer Taslı Sapık's rating of the film Ant-Man

    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:

  • Murat Erdem's rating of the film Ant-Man

    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.

  • Ghostman's rating of the film Ant-Man

    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
