Ghost's costume is based on the character's modern design from Thunderbolts, but still incorporates the hood that was part of the original outfit back in The '80s. Incidentally, the final look bears more than a passing resemblance to the "hunter" character class in Bungie's hit videogames Destiny 1 & 2. See more »
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 »

Simple, funny and relaxing
I know it is kind of late but I just saw Ant-Man and the Wasp yesterday and thought I should leave a review for it. This was a more easy-going and funnier experience compared to the other two juggernauts Marvel brought to us this year. And while it is not as great as the other two, it was an enjoyable experience.
The film takes place after the events of Civil War and right before Infinity War. During this time, Scott Lang is under house arrest to be near his daughter Cassie. However, trouble arises when a mysterious character named Ghost shows up, and Scott will have to adopt the alter ego Ant-Man again with the help from the Wasp(Hope van Dyne) and Hank Pym to stop Ghost and fix their problems from the past.
The film's plot was rather simple, mostly because the story focuses on the characters and they delivered a plot which is easy to follow, but not too predictable. However, its simplicity also means some parts of the story will feel illogical. Any parts that didn't add up, they will either throw an exposition or the phrase 'Quantum' in there to explain. That's lazy writing.
The film haonls many characters and sadly, many of them felt out of place or under-developed. The main reason for this is the introduction of the Wasp. And while she was an amazing she character, she outshone the rest of the cast, including our main protagonist Scott/Ant-Man. Hannah John-Kamen and Laurence Fishburne's charcters were so underdeveloped that I couldn't care less about them. Maggie( Judy Greer) and Jim( Bobby Cannavale) were unnecessary and you can throw them out of the movie without worrying about changing the storyline. But still, kudos to the writers for making such an impressive introduction to the Wasp.
As for acting, most of the cast did they part, especially Evangeline Lilly. She is the perfect Wasp and created a great chemistry between Ant-Man and the Wasp. Paul Rudd is great as always, but I felt like he should have been given more things to do this time around. He was a very smart character in the original Ant-Man, but they made him a complete dummy this time around.
The worst part about this film is how they completely wasted the Quantum Realm. There is so much potential , but they just ignored it. I hope they show more of the Realm in the upcoming Avengers 4.
All in all, this was a very fun and enjoyble film. Despite some obvious flaws, Peyton Reed did try his best to improve what was not good enough in the first film and helped the film stand out among Black Panther and Infinity War. Recommended for families or those who just want to have a good time in the theater.
