Totally watchable
6 September 2015 | by Facundo RamosSee all my reviews

I've just seen Antboy and as expected, doesn't bring anything new to the super-heroic genre. It doesn't even bring anything new to the whole movie-about-child genre. But there's where the really interesting part is. All in all i feel like Antboy is a love letter to the superheroes stories most of us grew up with. It has almost every cliché from every single superhero movie you can remember without googling, and that's the reason that makes it so fun to watch. It might not be the best acting performance you'll ever see, but the kids are cool and the script is quite consistent all around. The tone is set properly and after seeing the trailer for the upcoming sequel i confirm what i said above. It's a fun, entertaining movie that doesn't bring any surprises but doesn't fall apart either (did anybody say Crap-tastic Four?). I would totally recommend it to someone who really loves superhero comics/movies. The rest might (and will) find it dull.

In a few words: Antboy is to the superhero genre what Fanboys is to Star Wars.
