Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantamania- Hit or Miss?


Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantamania is the start of Marvel Studios’ phase five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is the third movie to the Ant-Man series, which continues the story of Ant-Man and the Wasp, played by Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily. This movie also introduces a new villain to the series, Kang the Conqueror played by Jonathan Majors. We last saw Kang in the final episode of Marvel Studios’ Loki. Here is my spoiler free review.

This movie was my least favorite of the three Ant-Man films. Something that truly saved this movie for me was the amazing way Jonathan Majors portrayed Kang the Conqueror. He is a phenomenal actor and one of the best villain portrayals I’ve seen in awhile. I wanted this story to wrap Ant-Man’s story since it is the last one in his franchise. Instead it’s more of a start up story for the rest of phase five and something that upset me the most, is that we didn’t get to see most of the original actors from the first two Ant-Man movies. Scott Lang is probably one of my favorite Marvel characters and it’s still very refreshing to see that his level of humor is the same. Paul Rudd has a special way of adding his comedic timing to his character (Scott Lang). The movie didn’t have the best VFX, it felt more like a spy kids movie. Something else that I noticed is that they gave Kathryn Newton’s character, Cassie Lang, very awful dialog.  She is a phenomenal actor especially on Netflix’s The Society, so the director is to blame for the direction of Cassie’s character. The post credits were something I enjoyed as I do with every post-credits for Marvel movies and it showed us what our next journey will be with Kang the Conqueror. 


I did have a lot of fun watching this movie though, so it isn’t the absolute worst as critics are making this movie to be. This movie is a 3 out of 5 stars for me, it wasn’t the best but it was okay. That’s what this movie is, just okay. If you are someone like me who keeps up with everything Marvel puts out, I would definitely recommend watching this movie to understand the rest of phase 5, but if you aren’t, I would skip this movie in theaters.
