After dozens of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, we’re pretty sure that you already get the hang of its premise. While not all of their movies end up happily (we’re clearly talking about Avengers: Infinity War here), making its viewers jolly seems to be the top priority for most of Marvel movies. Its latest inception, Ant-Man & The Wasp is no exception as it brings streams of laughter from beginning to end. Directed by Peyton Reed, Paul Rudd reprises his role as Scott Lang a.k.a Ant-Man and this movie was set after the first Avenger movie when the crew saved Sokovia from destruction. The aftermath saw Scott Lang being on house arrest for two years, and without authorization to use his super suit, he was just like an ordinary man who tried his best to serve his sentence. Ant-Man’s suit inventors Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) with his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lily) were sought by the FBI for giving unauthorized technology to Scott, so they were on a run. Losing contact after a couple of years, Scott who had entered the sub-atomic realm on the first movie suddenly received signals from Janet, Hank Pym’s wife who never returned after she went sub-atomic 30 years ago.
Building a new technology in search of his long-lost wife, while being chased by the FBI, criminals who want to acquire the quantum technology, as well as Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), a woman with invisibility superpower, this odd team of three must rush against time for their ultimate mission. They bring fun action-packed scenes with hundreds of jokes thrown here and there. While some of the lines felt dry at times, the scriptwriter successfully instills portray Ant-Man as a funny character with a sense of naivety and innocence. Probably, being a dad in the MCU gives him an edge that other superheroes do not have. The plot was predictable to the least, with an ending that might make sense if you have watched previous movies from MCU. This movie also brings women power to the spotlight with The Wasp a.k.a Hope Van Dyne being a badass figure who could hold together Ant-Man. Go watch it for a two-hour laugh!
