Ant-Man Review

Good things come in small packages. 

Marvels latest superhero may be small, but he comes with one hell of a kick.

Ant-Man is the latest film in the Marvel Universe to hit the big screen, following Avengers: Age of Ultron. Personally I feel the previous few films have seriously lacked with plot and character relationships, opting for the bigger and bolder action scenes.

However Ant-Man, much like Guardians of the Galaxy has brought a  revitalised outlook on the superhero world. With Ant-Man we go back to the basics of a classic heist film, which brings with it humour, friendship, and a great cast, including Michael Douglas and Hobbit star Evangeline Lily.

Paul Rudd takes on the responsibility of wearing the infamous Ant-Man suit. Now Paul is known for his comedic roles, and with this character he doesn’t disappoint. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) has the sarcastic wit of Tony Stark – without the arrogance. Ant-Man brings the family element into play with Lang’s daughter, whom he is trying to build a life for.

Like all Marvel films Ant-Man includes great cameo appearances from some of our favourite characters.

I don’t want to spoil the plot but it’s definitely a must see!

Ant-Man may be a hero, but like any other superhuman he wouldn’t be anywhere without his sick kick, or in Ant-Mans case side kicks. Keep a look out for Antony!

Another audience favourite is Luis, played by Michael Pena. Luis is a criminal, friend and ex-cell mate of Scott Lang, throughout the film he brings entertainment and hilarious one liners – I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw this character pop up even more in the following Marvel releases.

Plus don’t forget to stay to the end for the always exciting glimpse at the next film in the Marvel series: Captain America Civil War, which wont be released until May 2016.

So until then, why not watch the trailer for Ant-Man right here.

Overall I would rate the film 7.5/10.
