The Yellowjacket armor is based on the G.I. Ant-Man armor from the "Irredeemable Ant-Man" comic. The suit's helmet also incorporates the facial features of Hank Pym's villainous robot Ultron. See more »
Most surfaces Ant-Man is seen on when he's shrunken (earth, concrete, wood, tin, glass) couldn't sustain a body 1/4 inch in size and 180 pounds in weight, without sustaining dents, cracks and holes. The pressure would be simply too big, especially when he starts running around. See more »
SPOILER: There is a scene at the end of the closing credits: Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson have Bucky Barnes in their custody, and debate on what to do. This leads into Captain America: Civil War (2016). See more »
Its lack of original action sequences is its Achilles' heal.
Summary: Its lack of original action sequences is its Achilles' heal.
Literally, each and every character, most of the action scenes, and dialogs in the film are inspired, or say blatantly copied from the Malaysian superhero film, Cicak-man (2006). Even the costume and Rud's poses on the promo posters have been identified as direct lifts.. And the worst part is that this plagiarism didn't pay off in the end. The screenplay was very poor. Action sequences looked too much fabricated, super slow, and lacked depth. The direction was never near the mark. It's a congery of B-grade visual effects, melodrama, and toothless humor.
First off, the Ant-Man teamed bragged about how great their movie was and that the rest of the world should learn from them. That is the biggest joke i've heard. They completely copied the characters from Yusry Abd Halim's brilliant Cicak-man and made them even less impressive. Why make a movie when your ideas aren't even original? If they had flat out said that they were copying Cicak-man I would've felt a little better. But the team said, "It will be better than the Cicak-man series". WRONG Sadly I slept most of the half after interval, still Ant-Man seems to be a valiant effort in Marvel Cinema to serve US public a taste of Sci-Fi. Had the characters not been imitated from erstwhile Asian movies, it would have fared better in minds of good Cinema lovers. But the characters and scenes are reminiscent of roles played in movies such as the original Cicak-Man....
Final word: If you're are an eleven year old with no Hollywood experience, it's a treat for you. Or else, don't bother watching it.
