“Ant-Man and the Wasp”–movie review   Leave a comment

Sequels are very seldom as good as the original and “Ant-Man and the Wasp” just shows that again. Not being a sci-fi or Marvel man the only reason I went to see the original was because I am a Paul Rudd fan and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the humor brought to it.

The sequel, written by 5 people, is a mish-mash of ideas, special effects, and illogical sequences all over the place. Ant-Man is now a small ant then a small man then a giant as is the Wasp, buildings, cars and anything else that comes along, except Michael Douglas and Michele Pfeiffer going back and forth through the 4th level! Oh did I mention that Douglas has a digital face lift while Michele doesn’t?

Along with every special effect you can think of, that is at least repeated 2-3 times as are the chases of all kinds there are more jokes thrown out that don’t land.

Paul Rudd is good as the Ant-Man and as a father to Abby Ryder Fortson along with at 14 other actors and comedians given time in the movie to do their ‘thing’ though some like Bobby Cannavale are completely wasted.

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” seems endless with 3-4 endings

Okay Tom Cruise don’t make me regret going to see “Mission Impossible” sequel number 563!
