When Luis is posing as a guard, he whistles "It's a Small World". Not only is Ant-Man small, which makes the song appropriate, but the song is originally from a ride at Disneyland, which, like Marvel Studios, is owned by The Walt Disney Company. See more »
The first time Scott shrinks himself, he shrinks upwards, so that his newly miniaturized body is roughly where his head was originally. This causes him to fall 5-6 feet down into the tub. Every other time he shrinks for the rest of the movie, he shrinks downward, keeping his feet on the ground each time (save for when he shrinks in mid-air). See more »
He doesn't seem happy. Hello, Hank. You're supposed to be in Moscow.
I took a detour... Through your defense lab.

Tell me that isn't what I think it is.
That depends if you think it's a poor attempt to replicate my work. Even for this group, that takes nerve.
You were instructed to go to Russia. May I remind you, Dr. Pym, that you're a soldier...

Its a shame so much money was spent on so little. I'm not talking about the premise of the movie, a microscopic super hero. No I'm talking about the dismal film, Ant Man, represents.
This film, in spite of its budget and reasonable cast, feels a hell of a lot like a badly made B-Grade flick. The kind that goes straight to television. The acting is hammy and melodramatic, the storyline tedious and formulaic and the action badly timed and somehow, rather awkward and clumsy.
In fairness, this is not easy subject matter to migrate from comic book to big screen. The notion of a super hero who can shrink in size is a tough one requiring very careful handling and timing. The fact the subject matter is tossed around like a football is the reason its such a mess.
My advice, give this one a miss. Two out of ten from me.
