An enjoyable and entertaining sequel
7 July 2018 | by TheTopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

I didn't have high expectations for an Ant-man sequel, but this one delivered some entertainment fit for the entire family. Decent humor, fun action and a good story made this film enjoyable. CGI was decent as was the action. It's an 8/10 from me.
