In the aftermath of Captain America-Civil War, Avengers broke down. Scott Lang i.e Antman is struggling with his freedom as he broke the laws. In the beginning of the movie, Lang is home arrested for three long days. Within those three days life of Antman marks a huge curve.
Apparently, Lang’s past life of crime will now be erased by the domestic duties. But before the LoJack comes off, he’s drawn into another adventure with inventor Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), Pym’s daughter, Hope (Evangeline Lilly), and Hope’s long-lost mother, Janet, the Wasp in question who has been miniaturized and trapped for 30 years in the quantum realm, but who now might be capable of returning — with Ant-Man’s help, of course. Meanwhile, Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) and Bill Foster (Laurence Fishburne) try to obstruct their mission by creating a mess. The movie has great touch of humour and is a perfect film for entertainment. As rest of the Marvel movies, Antman and the Wasp also correlates to the most anticipated Marvel movie i.e Avengers 4.
Paul Rudd: Playing the lead role of Antman, Rudd has again accomplished his character and gave his best. Rudd has already been part of two Marvel movies prior to Antman and the Wasp. His humour was just amazing throughout the film.
Evangeline Lilly: Playing the character of Hope van Pym, Lilly has made absolute justice. She has done really impressive action scenes in the movie. Lilly has got a huge screen space and she had taken complete advantage of it. She might be seen in the upcoming Marvel series.
Michael Douglas: Being the father of Hope and the great scientist, Hank van Pym has played a huge role in the movie. Apart from being a good father and a rude scientist, Douglas was seen playing the role of a loving and caring husband. In the movie he has totally focused on rescuing his long lost beloved wife. The emotion of concern was greatly portrayed.
Hannah John-Kamen: Making the debut in Marvel series Hannah plays the role of Ghost whose cells have been tore apart in an accident. She tries to abduct the materials Hank has related to Quantum realm. Her suit is uniquely designed. She plays her role pretty well.
Michelle Pfeiffer: Apart from playing the role of Hank’s beloved wife and Hopes mother, she also plays the heroic woman, Wasp. She doesn’t has a huge screen space but she manages well.
Laurence Fishburne: Playing the role of guardian of Ghost, Bill Foster showcases the soft corner and doesn’t appear to be the villain. His character is neutral. In terms of acting he could have done much better than what he did.
Direction: Peyton Reed has directed the previous part of the series i.e Ant-Man and he had done really well then and he did equally impressive now. Reed focused on maximum amount of humor to keep film entertaining to the viewers. The dialogues were really amusing, hilarious and impressive. After Ant-Man movie, Reed continues to keep the level of bar higher.
Cinematography: The VFX in the movie is highly impressive. As compared to the previous part i.e Antman, Ant-Man and the Wasp has much more attractive graphics. Cinematographer Dante Spinotti has left no tables unturned and he has given his best.
Overall the movie is a must watch for Marvel fans as well as Non-Marvel fans. The movie is humourous, the action scenes are impressive and breath taking, dialogues are pretty good.
Cinespeaks would like to give 4 stars to the film.
