In the scene where Scott Lang finally learns to control the ants with Hope van Dyne in the car, Lang tells the ants to spin a Lincoln cent on its side and the coin rings. The composition of that Lincoln cent is 97.5 percent zinc and 2.5 percent copper (copper-plated zinc), and would not ring if flipped or spun. Only Lincoln cents made of 95 percent copper and 5 percent zinc, which was minted up until 1982, would have made that ringing sound. See more »

Ant Man is about a likable burglar, played by Paul Rudd, who finds a suit which allows him to shrink down to the size of the ant. The owner of the suit, and previous Ant Man (Michael Douglas) trains the main character to use the suit in order to stop the villain, who is attempting to militarize a shrinking suit of his own. The cast is solid and has good chemistry, and the movie is pleasantly humorous. The action, though there is not a lot of it, is exciting. It includes great special effects, largely in sequences when the hero shrinks and controls ants to aid him. On the other hand the story is for the most part underwhelming, though it does benefit from having a smaller scale than most superhero movies. The villain of the movie, played by Corey Stoll, is wasted, lacking interesting personal motivation or interaction with the main character until the ending.
