Throughout the movie, as in Ant-Man, the mass (weight) of the objects which shrink and enlarge is never handled consistently. Sometimes objects (such as the people) retain their full weight when made very small, hence able to affect much larger objects with great force. But the same is not true when large heavy objects like cars and buildings are made small. Also, when Scott becomes very large, his mass is proportional to that, instead of remaining his actual ~200 lbs. See more »

There is a scene at the end of the closing credits: the giant ant plays a drum solo in Scott's house while an emergency broadcast plays throughout San Francisco. See more »
I love what Marvel have done in the creation of their "Universe" it's an overwhelming triumph and despite my fears they managed to slot Antman in there perfectly back in 2015.
A heavily comedic character is was heavy on charm, humour and elevated by a fantastic charm. Truth be told I found myself really hyped for the second movie, more than any other (Except GotG).
With every cast member both big and small returning a fantastic villian and the one and only Laurence Fishburne, the stars were aligning for another fantastic addition to the universe. And it is................kind of.
Regarding the previous films I've enjoyed them all with the exception of two. I didn't see the appeal in Dr Strange and thought that Black Panther was one of the most overrated movies in the history of the industry.
Antman 2 delivers, it does just not to the extent I hoped. Rudd, Lilly and Douglas are excellent once again and the story is fantastic though I think much of the impact of some of the story is highly lacking.
Our new villian delivered more than I'd ever expected, Pfeiffer was a great addition and Pena managed to annoy me less than usual!
The first movie got a solid 7/10 from me and this sequel is recieving the same. What that means is I consider it a good film, it's just not exactly groundbreaking stuff. I feel the movie played it a tad safe and didn't meet its potential.
Regardless it's funny, it's action packed and it's likeable and therefore it's another Marvel success in my book.
Fits into the universe well
I still don't like Pena
Some of the impact was lost
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Lilly is a very clever actress who picks her roles well
Someone still needs to explain to me how they do that age regression thing sfx
Walton Goggins has friends in high places
The size shifting has all kinds of bedroom possibilities
Truth serum IS a thing
