Seriously One of the best MARVEL supeheroes ever the smallest superhero bad-ass
30 September 2018 | by rambofan4lifeSee all my reviews

Ant-Man is bad-ass spectacular heist adventure movie different than Iron Man but definitely one of my all time favorite MCU films. It was directed by Peyton Reed who previously directed Bring It On my all time favorite teen comedy movie. He directed brilliant the film. Paul Rudd is Scott Lang/ Ant-Man a master thief who becomes a new MARVEL superhero. Paul Rudd helped writing a screenplay for his character he was playing. There was 4 screen writers working on a script for this movie, that is why the movie turned out so good. I never heard before about Ant-Man but my coworker did heard about the "smallest superhero" Ant-Man. It is a good solid, decent intelligent origin story about redemption that is a kick-ass bad-ass movie. I have enjoy it very much.

After in 1989 Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) invents a serum and formula for Ant-Man suit and resigns from Howard Stark S.H.I.E.L.D.. In the present day Pym's estranged daughter, Hope van Dyne, and former assistant and brilliant scientist Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) have forced him out of his company, Pym Technologies. Cross is close to perfecting a shrinking suit of his own, the "Yellowjacket", which horrifies Pym. Because Cross almost figure it out a formula from Hank Pym for his Ant-Man shrink suit. Hank Pym recruits Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) a master thief who breaks in to his vault and steal his suit. Hank decides to give Scott Lang a chance to redeem him self and get him in to the suit. Hank becomes Scott's mentor so that Scott will break and steal in to Cross Technological Enterprises and destroy all the data base and steal the "Yellowjacket" suit that Darren Cross invented. With the support and help from Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), Hank Pym's estranged daughter and help with his there friends Luis (Michael Peña), Kurt (David Dastmalchian) and Dave (T.I.), Ant-Man goes on a deadly mission for his own redemption of his daughter.

This Is a decent marvel film about the smallest superhero. Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon is in this movie as one of the Avengers who is guardian Avengers building in which Scott Lang/Ant-Man has to break in to facility to steal a little technology because they need it to break in to Cross Technological Enterprises. Great fight sequence with Ant-Man and Falcon kick-ass. I never expect to be this movie so good: Scott Lang is an ex systems engineer at VistaCorp and petty criminal who served time in prison I would say 3 years in San Quentin State Prison. Scott decides to steal Ant-Man suit to support his daughter Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson). But since he broke out from jail and her step father who is a cop pursuing him. Scott Lang has only one chance to be in her daughter's life REDEMPTION.

Michael Douglas was awesome as mentor Dr. Hank Pym and father figure to Scott Lang. Paul Rudd was fantastic as Scott Lang/Ant-Man he was also in Captain America: Civil War in Captain America Team. Evangeline Lilly was great as Hope van Dyne she was good at her role. Corey Stoll is a terrific bad guy as Yellowjacket who wanted to kill Cassie (Scott Lang's) daughter and Ant-Man goes to save her. Michael Pena as Luis is great in this movie I love him like he saved that security guard decent. The fight sequences between Yellowjacket and Ant-Man is excellent comes handy in the movie hand to hand combat. This is like I would watch Aliens (1986) my favorite film of all time.

Ant-Man the smallest superhero I love this film to death it is my favorite MCU movie I cant wait to watch the sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp this October I will definitely review the film. ©
