Balancing home life and the life of a super hero, Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) finds himself torn between needs, wants, and demands as Hank Pym, Janet Van Dyne and Hope Van Dyne (Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Evangeline Lilly) come calling. Meanwhile the work of a dark character known as Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) stirs the pot further, now dropping to the sub-atomic level gains even more importance. Finding balance between big and small, this could take some work. Directed by Peyton Reed and Written by Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Paul Rudd, Andrew Barrer, and Gabriel Ferrari the entertainment demands for the sophomore dance of the lesser known comic hero are set sufficiently high, and, in light of recent events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (think Thanos’s hand of fate), the desire for levity is and was certainly necessary, proud to report, success. Sure, there are gimmicky tricks of shrinking and growing using “science,” but it’s still fun, the entertainment factor is still there, and the overall story is still successful in taking the viewer on a summertime popcorn chomper ride. Meanwhile, humor beats hit on a regular basis to provide the necessary chuckles to keep the ball rolling; and, the chemistry of the ensemble add extra glue to keep this picture together. Fun! Ant-Man and the Wasp is rated PG-13.
