Ant-Man and the Wasp, created by Marvel Cinematic Universe, based on characters by Stan Lee: a Film Review

Synopsis:

Two years have passed since Scott Lang was involved with the Avengers.  Two years since he was placed under house arrest.  And two years since he last saw Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne. 

Only days away from being released, Scott contacts Hank because of a dream he had about Janet, Hank’s wife lost long ago to the Quantum Realm.

Upon hearing of this contact Hope and Pym take it upon themselves to kidnap Scott in order to get his assistance in finding Janet in the Quantum Realm as he is the only one who has been sub-atomic and come back from it.

While trying to buy a part for the quantum tunnel the trio begins to build in their quest to bring Janet back, Hope is attacked by a strange, masked woman.  During the fight, in which Hope dons her mother’s Wasp suit and Scott steps in as Ant-Man they notice that their attacker seems out of phase with the current reality…

It seems that things are about to get very complicated as the Ghost, Sonny Birch and his crew as well as Pym, Lang and Hope all are vying to get the technology needed to make all of their dreams come true.

Review (contains spoilers):

An all-around great addition to the Ant-Man world.

It has all of the craziness of the first film.  We get some great action.  We get big and small…. all the little CGI moments that I was obsessed with in the first movie. We get the character of Ghost.  Along with all the warnings of messing around with the Quantum Realm…and time in general…which I’m sure is going to be important later…hint, hint, nudge, nudge.

The further we get into the MCU the more that little moments have big meanings for things later on in the universe.

How the writers keep track is kind of insane.  But you know.  They are great at what they do.

Just a generally fun and action-packed film.  Super enjoyable and a great example of how the MCU continues to CONSISTENLY create great entertainment.
