I really did not plan to see Ant-Man. Honestly, when I first saw the trailer, I laughed.
While I have enjoyed the Marvel movies immensely, especially the Avengers movies, the whole concept of an Ant Man just seemed so silly. I just wasn't interested, but Scott really wanted to see it, so we saw it in 3D yesterday. And, I was pleasantly surprised.
Paul Rudd makes it. Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic cast: Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Judy Greer, Michael Pena, and more.
Michael Douglas was great and looks amazing.
But, Paul Rudd is just so endearing, he brings a charm to this movie that I wasn't expecting. There is something almost sweet about it.
The premise is based on the old comic. A special suit gives a man the ability to shrink in size but increase in strength. He also has a device giving him the ability to control the ants who are more or less his size when the suit is utilized.
Of course, the villain invents a similar suit and becomes the nemesis, the Yellow Jacket.
