Life for Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is good. He is basking in the recognition
and fame that has come with his work with the Avengers and saving half the
universe from Thanos and has even become a best-selling author.
He has a successful relationship with Hope (Evangeline Lilly) who has
taken her father’s company to new heights and they have managed to blend
their personal and professional lives and enjoy a very happy life.
Scott does worry about his daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton) as he lost
several years with her during the Blip and she is an activist who has been
arrested for her efforts including a hysterical prank on the police with
Cassie is constantly on her father for not doing more as she feels that he
is more focused on the past battles with the Avengers and not the day to
day struggles people are facing. Over dinner, she tells Hope and her dad as
well as Hank (Michael Douglas), and Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer), whom she
studied Hank’s journals while they were in the Blip and has developed a
Quantum beacon which can map the Quantum Realm without having to venture
to the sub-atomic relay where until recently nobody had been able to
This news sends Janet into a panic during a demonstration and the four are
soon sucked into the realm and discover a diverse and thriving ecosystem
as well as an abundance of strange and dangerous creatures.
Janet is clearly hiding something and is frantic that they must leave but
their party has been scattered and they soon learn that she fears and
individual known as Kang (Jonathan Majors).
While she was trapped in the realm for thirty years, Janet encountered
King and helped him regain his power source but in doing so, learned he
was a banished conquerer who can manipulate time, space, and the
Her actions to trap Kang and lead a resistance to the vast empire he
created has set the stage as Janet has now returned to see what has
developed and Kang will stop at nothing to regain his power source to
escape and wreck his wrath on trillions.
Naturally, it is up to Scott, Hope, and the team to find a way to fight the
evil and powerful Kang to save the day.
The film is a darker tale than people might expect from an Ant-man movie
but in kicking off Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the movie is
a visual splendor filled with amazing visuals, landscapes, and characters.
The film takes a bit of time to get to the action but when it arrives it
delivers and the performance of Majors as Kang is captivating it will
be interesting to see where the storyline evolves over the next series of
films leading up to “The Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” and beyond.
“Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania may not break loads of new ground in
terms of a Marvel film but Director Peyton Reed knows the characters well
and delivers a story that should resonate with the fans and the strong
cast and addition of Majors along with the great visuals make this
another winner for Marvel.
4 stars out of 5
FULL SPOILER-FREE REVIEW @ https://www.msbreviews.com/movie-reviews/ant-man-and-the-wasp-quantumania-review
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania warrants the divisive reception. Immersive visuals, more than satisfying action, and absolutely exceptional performances, aside from Kathryn Newton due to lack of direction. Unfortunately, the excessive, repetitive, unnecessary dialogue driven by exposition, along with a lack of stronger tonal balance – fewer jokes by Marvel standard, but the cringe level affects transitions to/from more serious moments – and an underdeveloped narrative devoid of true stakes – character arcs are almost non-existent – make this an overall very inconsistent watch. Still, JONATHAN MAJORS AS KANG! Wow!”
Kang pulled his punches?
Quantum Mania takes the MCU deeper into the quantum realm and presents us a real first taste of Kang the Conqueror. Thanos and his Infinity War are now part of the past in a timeline that has been upended by the discovery of the multiverse. The hype surrounding Ant-Man and the Wasp 2(?) seemed impossible to meet. The same weight was put on the Multiverse of Madness which cracked under the pressure of expectation. Unfortunately, QuantumMania suffers the same fate. Kang is intimidating, powerful and compelling but has been muzzled and restrained by a screenplay that lacks courage and risk when it mattered. Majors is fantastic as the character and I can’t wait to see him develop this character and other variants further. However, I can’t help but see a missed opportunity here to plant Kang like a unavoidable tree in the multiverse saga. It feels like Marvel prefers to put all their eggs in the basket of Loki season 2 rather than a feature film.
It’s not all bad though. On the contrary. The film is often times charming, engaging and genuinely funny. It has some fantastic set pieces with inconsistent CGI which has become the new norm for Marvel as of late. Our main cast of characters are solid, though I can’t help but feel Hope has been left by the wayside here. Quantum Mania is a solid entry in the MCU but lacks any weight to be memorable or revolutionary. It had a great opportunity to shock and surprise but chose to play it safe and missed out on some great potential.
Big, Small, Antman’s Got A Little of It All And Sometimes Too much
The Graphics/World Design -Marvel really has a great budget to create worlds from our imagination and this installment continues to make it happen.
-Lavish colors, odd beasts, a world that Strange World was trying to make but with more thought and layering.
-Great cultures, a comic book sense of atmosphere, and a new world to which lots of foundations may just build from in the future.
-Feels like a strong mash up of Star Wars, Marvel, and Battlestar with pinches of other movies to help spice up a few things with them as well. Nice references indeed.
The Comedy At Times -The comedy is awesome often thanks to writing and Paul Rudd making the lines come to life.
-The snarky humor and sarcasm works very well, and I truly did laugh a bunch at how he just owns AntMan and makes it work on levels to be fun.
-There are plenty of aggressive lines that will be there for people to enjoy, several filled with cursing so caution, but it works when in balance and timed just right.
-And some running gags add a little spice to the mix as well, and that was awesome to say the least.
-Overall, the comedy works for me, but there are limitations to be mentioned at a later section.
The Action At Times -The action does have these moments that show Marvel can still make a good fight.
-Choreography has some flavor, the powers are fun, and the use of that awesome design comes out pretty well.
-Several moments have some impressive strategy behind it, and again surprises me with how some of these stunt people can move.
-And there is musical and visual support to help make everything come to life and have that movie magic that we love in these films.
-Throw in some emotional moments that work to add that bite and edge, and several comedic moments, and AntMan 3 really helps add a little more sauce to the factor that many come to these movies for.
The Character Development At Times -Kang is the lead for me on this film, in just how much they took the one moment we had with him before and amplifies it so well. He gets a lot of time to flourish and I totally agree that he is worth it.
-As for Scott, again he and Janet get some surprising levels that I love and these moments really help amplify those who seem somewhat forgettable, a joke of the movie, and really bring them to the forefront to be the heroes we want.
The Acting -Marvel is not often loaded with duds, so I can’t say that I was surprised to see a strong hand played for this film.
-I’d say just about everyone hits their mark, but I have limited room, so I’ll stick to the three top listed and go from there.
-Rudd is hilarious, hands down a solid balance of comedy, emotion, and bravado that establishes the themes of this movie and often does not stray into overacting. So natural in his delivery he keeps entertainment and drama in check.
-Lilly was fine in her time on the screen, but I can’t say that Hope had the same punches or influence on me as the past. She seemed a little laid back, lackluster, and then finally picks it up but not to the degree I’ve seen her in other films.
-Majors though, wow, Majors kills this role. The man knows how to articulate movements, add elements to his speech and craft this role so well. Kang is such a layered villain and Majors destroys it with the way he incorporates so much into one man. What a fantastic ability to do so much.
The Pace Is A Fast -Normally this is a good thing, and by the end you’ll see why it might be a bit bad.
-Quantumania really has a lot of things launching from it, and not everything was fleshed out, thought through, or detailed as Phase 1 and 2 were able to do for the most part.
-It was great to see so much, and yet, it moved a tad too fast for me to really get everything down and have that commitment.
-Perhaps they tried to launch too much and had they toned back, several parts of this could have had a consistently strong bite that these climactic moments had.
-Though my bladder was happy, I think this one needed to slow down a bit in my opinion.
The Character Development Is Bland At Times -With that pace, some development felt a bit simplified and lacking.
-Hope gets little for me in terms of truly worthwhile investment, and Hank is more comedic than truly amazing, lost to a secondary character status.
-Several other new members are there to have an inconsistent bite, and though there are shining moments, there are sadly not the same speed that I like in my character stories.
-Thus, these blander moments aren’t the worst, but given the magic of Avengers and Civil War, I guess I expected more in this tale.
Many Elements Feel Simplified: -Again, there is a lot of potential in this movie, and yet… did it fully achieve it?
-Some levels, yes, there are these champion aspects I wish I got more time with and had smoother transitions.
-And yet other things just felt so watered down. Several cultural tribes and relationships. New characters who had abilities to dig out things, but were comedic only, and even several elements of exploration were lost.
-All this build up at times sometimes just flops out and again, we are left with a bare bone, C-grade means to tell the tale.
The Comedy Forced Sometimes -There is plenty of good laughs to be had and I admit again I chuckled a bunch, especially some of the adult jokes.
-But… again we have been robbed of balance and sometimes the comedy tried too hard to be funny for me and tripped up the momentum to be had.
-A running gag about how to punch sometimes flopped for me, other times it was just stopping to joke during an action scene, and other times was just a joke going too far for me that it lost its edge for me.
-I’m not saying it reached levels of Thor, but… I can also say sometimes the edge needed to win and stay while the jokes were left behind.
The Action Could Have Been More -Again, there are moments where the action is on fire and some of the best I’ve seen in a while.
-But that doesn’t mean it approaches the level that other films have done and given the buildup, I guess I feel more of it than other films.
-Many action sequences last less than 5 minutes, with a tad simplification and a minimization to the chaos they could have had.
-A few bad guys to beat down or at least scare off? Maybe a run in with Kang earlier and fleeing from him to an extent far less trivial.
-And they still have not gotten big battles with lots of pieces the due time and natural development I know they can do.
-Thus, the action could have been more in my opinion.
The VERDICT The opening hand for Phase 5 is heavy and truly a visionary wonder to behold. AntMan’s third trip to the screens is loaded with a bunch of things you might like in regards to your movie with action, comedy, edge, emotion, and stakes that have been absent in a lot of Marvel’s productions. It really has a lot of good in my opinion and has done the job of set up and entertainment to the point that there is a lot to uncover. Some good character use, a dab of emotion, and some focus on evolving characters is a nice foundation, and the comedic antics with the comic capers of fighting further help add the spice to things that I like in a movie. Not to mention, Majors really is a welcome addition for me and what he has done with a villain in terms of exciting layers. And yet, the movie still has balance issues, primarily in the form of doing a consistent job of handling everything and not doing too much. I think there was a lot they try to accomplish, which they kind of did, but I just think more time or less content would have helped with character usage, action, and that full effect I like to see in other movies. Still, I don’t think this is horrible, nor do I think it is perfect, but the opening gamble was enjoyable for me. My scores are:
Action/Adventure/Comedy: 8.0 Movie Overall: 7.0.
