Ant-Man And The Wasp

I have to admit that when Ant-Man was released, I almost did not see it. Later when I came to know that all MCU movies are inter-connected. I watched it.

It requires no guesses that when Ant-Man and the Wasp released, I made sure that I watch it so that I am able to connect the dots.

When you look at Ant-Man, he looks like the regular guy with family and ended up becoming a superhero. I think one would wonder why they should watch the movie when Ant-Man is not big of a superhero compared to Iron Man, Thor or Captain America who simply own their movies.

Everyone has a role to play in the built up of the aftermath of the use of Infinity stones and I believe Ant-Man will be playing a vital one. I think apart from Deadpool (who have no connections with the related MCU movies), Ant-Man is the other guy with a sense of humor.

Taking it from the Ant-Man movie and before the Avengers: Infinity War, Hank Pym & Hope believe that they can bring Janet back from the Quantum Realm. As Scott Lang was able to do that.

Meanwhile Scott is under house arrest for helping Captain America and is two days away to get his freedom back. Apparently when Hank & Hope do their experiment of connecting to the quantum realm, Scott end up with a vision and they realize that he is in quantum entanglement with her.

There is only one problem that apart from them, there is a ghost named Ava & Sonny Burch who are also behind it for their own reasons. 

Do they succeed in getting Janet back and saving the technology from falling in the wrong hands is what the movie is all about.

I have to say that Scott Lang played by Paul Rudd is very understated and he pulls it off very well. Apart from him, Michael Pena is the one to watch out for. He stood out in Ant-Man too and this one too. Evangeline Lilly does not shine out in this one. Michael Douglas was good with this one-liners

The pace of the movie is enough to keep you glued to the screen and not too fast to wonder what's going on.  Laurence Fishburne & Michelle Pfieffer make their presence felt in the movie albeit minuscule roles.

The plot of the movie is not that great but the direction of Peyton Reed makes sure that there is no room for boredom.

This movie is certainly worth a watch more than once. Do watch it.

P.S. Do not miss out on the post credit scene. Holds vital clue.
