Trivia

The laboratory incorporates elements of various scales and was obviously enhanced when at various scales. Examples of this include an enormous battery and electric guitar volume knob and the like, with most everything else at human scale. The wheels and tote handle were obviously installed when the building was at the smaller size then, as with the battery and knob, expanded along with the building. See more »

Goofs

(at around 26 minutes) When Hope is fighting the henchmen in the kitchen, you see one guy grab the only knife on a cutting board and throw it at her. In the slow motion scene you even see his long follow through. Yet as we track Hope, she dodges 3 knives in rapid succession which could not have been thrown that fast.

Also the knives are not flying end over end as they should be. See more »

Ant-Man and the Wasp: On par sequel
9 November 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

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.

The Good:

Incredible cast

Genuine laughs

Fits into the universe well

The Bad:

I still don't like Pena

Some of the impact was lost

Bit generic

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
