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.
Ant-Man's encounter with the Avengers secures his place among their ranks. He saves the world and accepts his role in life like all good super heroes do in the end. It even ends by teasing us with the likelihood of a sequel.
The effects were good. See it in 3D for sure. There is adventure, humor and even a little romance.
Overall I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.
