Trivia

Pym technologies' logo is a series of 4 circles (2 inner ones are large, 2 outer ones are small) connected by lines. The 2 circles on the left are closed in; the 2 on the right are open. From left to right, the pattern is downward (small circle to large circle)-upward (large circle to small circle)-downward (small circle to large circle), which could suggest shrinking and growing in size.

Goofs

(at around 1h 35 mins) When Yellowjacket gets hit by Thomas The Tank Engine we see the train fully derail onto the table top from the perspective of Cassie Lang, however the very next shot is of Yellowjacket on the tracks, with Thomas' face directly behind him, so Yellowjacket can throw Thomas at Ant-Man.

Peggy Carter: Tell me that isn't what I think it is.
Hank Pym: That depends if you think it's a poor attempt to replicate my work. Even for this group, that takes nerve.

'Ant-Man', Marvel's little hero
28 November 2015 | by Parzival2000See all my reviews

I went to see Avengers: Age of Ultron to the cinema, and it was not that bad. Still, the first one keeps the first position. After that, i knew that MCU's next movie was Ant-Man, a completely new hero. But i wasn't so excited for that movie. And it was weird, because i always do it when a new Marvel movie is about to come out. I thought it was going to be just fine, even boring, 'cause that particularly hero didn't look attractive. I was very wrong.

The movie is about Scott Lang, a thief who gets a second chance from Dr. Hank Pym, the inventor of the Pym Particle, that makes a man reduce his size and become stronger. What Pym needs Scott to do is to destroy the Jellowjacket, a suit similar to Pym's suit (Ant-Man's suit), created by Darren Cross. And it needs to be destroyed because Darren's intension is to sell that suit to Hydra.

The story is very simple, but it's entertaining enough to make us see it to the end. I was afraid that Ant-Man would be full of comedy, like Guardians of the Galaxy, that had so much that was tiresome. But this film had jokes in the right moment, it was very well used.

To be honest, i was very surprised by Ant-Man. Paul Rudd makes a very good performance as Scott. I think that the best part of the entire film was the battle between Scott and Anthony Mackie's Falcon in the Avenger's new base. An epic battle with a short appearance of a new Avenger. I recommend this movie to any MCU's fan. Now we have to wait for Captain America: Civil War, that promises to be awesome.
