WITHIN THE MOVIES 4 - ANTMAN AND THE WASP REVIEW

July 21st, 2018

Within The Movies Episode 4

After the earth shattering ending of Infinity War, we're treated to the next chapter in line in the MCU with Antman and The Wasp! Directed by Peyton Reed and starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Pena, Antman and The Wasp is a prequel that takes place before Infinity War and after Civil War where we see the geng deal with the fallout from Civil War and the life-altering mission of rescuing Janet Van Dyne from the Quantum Realm! I'll be giving my thoughts on the movie and how it stacks up againts the previous MCU movies!   

 

Today's shownotes would be as follows: 

Impressions 

Mixed bag - A movie that is set just before infinity war with a convoluded story arc and villains. Enjoyed it but a messy movie compared to the recent success of the MCU. Not a lot at stake 

 

What I like 

A funny movie.  

As a connected cinematic movie, you would discover why and where was Antman when Infinity War happened – that end credit scene! Felt like got punch twice! 

Characters

Hope Van Dyne! 

Paul Rudd – Charming, Loveable criminal  

Antman’s connection to Cassie lang – his daughter 

The visuals were jaw-dropping – eg Janet and hank in their youth, The quantum realm 

 

What I don’t likeDisappointed 

Too many villains – sloppy writing, not focused 

Should’ve focus on Janet Van Dyne 

Story Wise – A smaller scale movie compared to infinity war 

As a movie itself, its charming as it continues where the first antman movie left out but was let down by its storywriting 

Janet Van Dyne – One dimentional 

Ghost – a blur (literally!)
