Review: Ant-Man

Ant-Man
07.16.2015
8 10
 

PLOT: Former cat-burglar Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is given a chance at redemption when scientist Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) chooses him for a top-secret mission to infiltrate his old company and destroy a prototype that allows people to be shrunk down to ant-size while achieving super-human strength. To do this, he’ll have to adopt Pym’s former identity – Ant-Man.

REVIEW: Marvel is extremely consistent as far as big-screen spectacle goes. While their mammoth superhero sequel AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON underwhelmed many fans (myself included) they bounce back big time with Peyton Reed’s ANT-MAN. While the behind-the-scenes drama, which involved the departure of Edgar Wright and the eleventh hour hiring of Peyton Reed, might make you think ANT-MAN was bound to be a mess you’d be wrong. While decidedly smaller scale (pun intended) than their recent releases, against all odds ANT-MAN emerges as one of the better Marvel movies – one that’s conjures up favorable comparisons to GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.

 

While it remains to be seen if ANT-MAN will be a breakout hit like GOTG the two films do indeed seem cut from the same cloth. Like James Gunn, Peyton Reed goes for fun over drama and pathos every time. Using a similarly bold color palette, ANT-MAN looks different than the desaturated blockbusters that crowd the multiplex (AGE OF ULTRON included) which serves the 3D conversion extremely well (as does the boxier 1:85:1 aspect ratio). While known mostly for comedies, years ago Reed was actually up for FANTASTIC FOUR and its clear the man knows exactly how to make an appealing superhero flick – opting for a heist driven plotline that makes this feel like the OCEANS’ ELEVEN of Marvel movies.

The chief asset here is without a doubt the impeccable cast. Paul Rudd is cast to perfection as the likable, decidedly non-super heroic Lang. Having had a hand in the screenplay with his ANCHORMAN director Adam McKay, Rudd’s personality comes through strongly. While funny, Rudd never tries to do a Tony Stark but rather shapes his own genial persona to the part. Lang’s just a nice guy trying to do right by his family and he’s unique as far as the Marvel heroes go. It should also be stated that like Chris Pratt, Rudd’s gotten himself into superhero shape, sporting an impressive six pack and some nifty parkour moves which are integrated into the ant-sized set pieces.

 

Evangeline Lily is similarly great as Lang’s love interest and Pym’s daughter, who’s cozying up to the snarling villain (an appropriately smarmy and over-the-top Corey Stoll) to let the heroes infiltrate his office. It’s teased that at one point she could emerge as a super heroine in her own right and Lily seems ideally cast opposite Rudd. Likewise, Michael Pena steals every scene he’s in as Rudd’s none-too-bright former cellmate, with some amazing deadpan delivery that brought the house down every time.

As good as they all are, Michael Douglas comes pretty close to stealing the show as former Ant-Man Hank Pym. Douglas is so good and oozes personality in the part, making one wish he’d get his own ANT-MAN prequel – something that doesn’t seem too far-fetched thanks to a 1989-set prologue that features an amazing cgi-facelift for Douglas who looks like he walked off the set of BLACK RAIN. While mostly sidelined as the younger actors do all the heroics, Douglas still has that thousand watt movie star charisma that’s unmistakable.

 

Another great thing about ANT-MAN is the way the action never becomes bombastic or overwhelming. Superhero movies often have a tendency of getting caught-up in all the sound and fury of trying to out-do themselves with each set piece. By saving the big action stuff until the extremely creative and effective finale, Reed is able to build a real sense of anticipation. Watching Rudd come into his own towards the end is surprisingly thrilling thanks to the fact that we’ve been allowed to invest in the character so fully.

In the end, ANT-MAN isn’t Marvel’s biggest or most lavish production, but it is one of their most creative. While we’ll never know what an Edgar Wright version would have been like, Peyton Reed has done a terrific job crafting a truly unusual and entertaining addition to the canon and one that should generate great word-of-mouth. It’s tough to imagine anyone not liking this.

The perfect Lemoncello

Grab a gallon size masonry jar.
Cut up 6 lemons into half inch wide slices
Shove them in the jar.
Pour in a bottle of mid grade vodka (don't use the high end it won't pick up the flavor as much)
Smirnoff works well.
Screw on lid and store in a cool dark place for three weeks.
Once every three days or so give it a check and shake it a little.

In an effort to make this bearable for all of us I will provide nice little pointers.

The perfect Margarita:
Fill Pint glass with ice
Add 2.5 ounces of Blanco Tequila
Fill with fresh Simply Lime juice from the juice section (try Simply Raspberry Lemonade)
Grab a mixing glass and transfer from one glass to the next and back.
Top with Grand Mariner or Chambord (I like raspberry)

Ansnwer to Thomas Elliot

So Thomas Elliot below thinks it will be funny to lower the status of this story by posting a bunch of BS negative posts. I will post 7 random positive reviews to counter act it. FYI, I have not seen Antman, it looks fun, I will try to make it out this weekend to see it, this is simply an immature reaction to a childish A-Hole!!! I'll try to make it fun.

Hope Van Dyne says to Darren Cross that he is losing his mind due to the Pym Particles because Hank Pym said the same thing earlier in the movie. Darren's Cross reaction was basically "What? That doesn't make sense." I wish I could have asked what Hank and Hope's reasoning was in that regard.

After everything positive I have heard about this movie, both from critics and from friends who have seen it, I am excited. Marvel rarely does wrong by me, and I am both surprised and excited that this is another good one for them.

I really wanted to like this movie, but Ant-Man was awful. There were entire plot elements that didn't make any sense. Darren Cross apparently went crazy because he didn't protect his brain when using the yellowjacket suit, except he didn't start using the suit until the third act of the movie. He was clearly evil and crazy WAY before that. That was just bad writing on Marvel's part. I'm not shocked that Joblo gave this movie an 8 out of 10, because they give high scores to every Marvel-Studios

Seriously guys, how could you give this train wreck an 8 out of 10? You guys are pro biased for everything made by Marvel Studios, and it's getting old. You're also clearly anti anything made by Fox-Marvel. Even though my roommate saw the new Fantastic Four and said it was stellar, I will not be surprised if Joblo gives that film a terrible score just because of the studio it's made by. It's a damn shame, at least a lot of us can see through you now.

As far as I remember, it's the exposure to Pym Particles without protection, not necessarily while using the suit... And he had plenty of exposure during the many tests he made.
Beside, they didn't know he was crazy before and might just try to find a 'logical' explanation to his behavior.

SPOILERS

This movie is so bad that these good reviews only confuse me. It isn't just bad, it's incompetent storytelling. There is a scene where Ant-Man has to shrink between molecules, but if he does it then he'll shrink forever unable to stop. So he shrinks between the molecules of titanium, and when he comes out the other side he is bigger than the circuity that he begins to smash. He was suppose to be the size of a molecule unable to grow. This film doesn't even pay attention to it's own freaking

So he shrinks between the molecules of titanium, and when he comes out the other side he is bigger than the circuity that he begins to smash. He was suppose to be the size of a molecule unable to grow. This film doesn't even pay attention to it's own freaking rules.

Then we are told that the villain went crazy because he shrank without proper protection for his brain. Yet he was acting crazy and killing people long before he ever figured out how to shrink himself. In fact the majority of the movie is the villain trying to learn Ant-Man's secret to shrinking. That is just lazy storytelling. That is just doing stuff while not even paying attention to what came before.

That's not to mention the awful three friends that feel more like characters from a Scary Movie sequel than a Marvel Movie. They were just painfully bad, particularly Pena. This film felt like an Eddie Murphy movie. I feel that people are giving anything Marvel related a pass (especially Bumbray, who gives every over hyped comic book movie an 8/10 or 9/10). I've seen critics rip apart far better films than this. It doesn't make sense.

Your first point is valid, or it's just that he could re-grow a little before loosing control of the suit totally... Yeah, I know, not buying it either.
The second one has explanations: 1) they might mean the exposure to the PP during the numerous tests, because, as far as I remember they talk about the Particles, not the costume. 2) They never realized he was already crazy, so they try to explain (to themselves) why he is acting crazy all of a sudden.
just my opinion, anyway !

Maybe in 10 years we'll get a "Death of Edgar Wright's Ant-Man" documentary but until then, I really don't have any interest in Ant-Man. The whole comic book genre is being stretched way too thin at this point and while I'm hoping DC can make some dynamic films in their attempts to one up the sterlie and predictable MCU, I think Ant-Man may be the turning point where the bubble finally bursts.

Loving the solid critic rating!

I was very slow to believe in this film but have liked the trailers, the comments from the stars, and all the publicity this film has received since it got back on track after Wright left.

The reviews are not only slightly higher than Age Of Ultron, the average score is higher. This could be a really fun summer film (probably the last fun one of the summer).

I'm pumped for this movie. Marvel at least knows how to market their stuff to a wife audience, while DC makes every movie look like an emo chicks wet dream.

There's no reason to boycott this movie. The credits at the end say "ANT MAN Director: Peyton Cornish Written by: Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish (and two others) Story by: Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish Producer: Kevin Feige Executive Producers: Stan Lee and Edgar Wright. Only a five year old would have a problem with this: if Edgar Wright's name appears in the credits then he got paid for the work he did.

What???

This is where things get a bit silly in my opinion. I haven't liked anything I've seen so far for FF for example. But if the reviews come out and most of them are good, of course I'll give it a shot. Reviews for this movie have been mostly positive. To dig heels in at this point without seeing it shows a nonsensical determination to dislike. Looking forward to seeing it. Not looking forward to FF but will be happy to see good reviews if they come.

I still can't get over that it's Ant Man. A movie about a guy with ant strength. That's so ridiculous. This seems like it's more for the kiddies than adults and young adults. I'm going to have to take a pass, especially since it got a 64 on metacritic. Sorry, I can't trust the reviews on here when it comes to comic movies. I feel like it's too biased. Maybe I'll check it out when it hits Netflix and I'm bored.

I have already made up my mind. Like I said before the movie looks ridiculous. I'm not interested in it. I would have only gave it a shot had reviews (with the exception of here) were raving about how great it is. Much like GOTG where I had no intentions on seeing it b/c I thought it was going to be crap. I finally gave it a shot b/c everyone everywhere said it was spectacular. But at the end of the day, it turned out to be mediocre IMO,

If you don't trust the reviews on this website anymore, thats fine, its completely your choice. But don't make the basis of your argument on that Ant-Man isn't believable, but something like, Thor or Iron Man is. A guy to have Ant like strength isn't plausible, yet a man in a suit, carrying a nuke into space is? I know you never said that, I'm only making a statement. They're comic book movies, sometimes having an imagination and enjoying what you're watching is what the movies is all about.

So what you're saying is, I should just accept anything? Yeah how about an eel that rides a motorbike and even though he doesn't have any legs or arms, he fights crime. There's a level of suspension of disbelief and a man shrunk down to an ant fighting people walks that line. So yes, I have no problem with the characters of Ironman, Thor, or Hulk. But this movie seems like the product of running out of ideas and releasing anything.

And Des1 what are you talking about? Movies? Please name
So what you're saying is, I should just accept anything? Yeah how about an eel that rides a motorbike and even though he doesn't have any legs or arms, he fights crime. There's a level of suspension of disbelief and a man shrunk down to an ant fighting people walks that line. So yes, I have no problem with the characters of Ironman, Thor, or Hulk. But this movie seems like the product of running out of ideas and releasing anything.

And Des1 what are you talking about? Movies? Please name them. And I'm surprised that you would like this movie. I think you warned me about The Following and that turned out to be shit.

Ant Man, one of the oldest of Marvel's heroes, an original member of The Avengers, original creator of Ultron (Hank Pym was). Ant Man has been a key hero in Marvel's lineup for decades, and while not popular with people who don't follow comics, he is popular with those who follow Marvel. Ant Man is about more than just having ant strength. Hank Pym, the original Ant Man, is a genius. You might want to do some research to find out just how big apart of the Marvel universe Ant Man and those who

Sounds much better than expected. I guess I wont be boycotting this one in support of Wright after all.

Glad to read the positive review. I'm not expecting Winter Soldier, or Guardians type of quality, but if it's anything like the first Iron Man (which it seems to be in terms of storyline and how low scale it looks), then that's perfectly fine with me. Can't wait.

Well if Wright didn't drag his feet for 8 years than you would have. Good riddance. He is the reason Ant-Man and Wasp weren't in The Avengers.

There's plenty of blame to go around. Wright and Feige went back and forth for many years with Feige ordering changes to Wright's script until Wright finally quit. What we got was a good movie though: it's more like Men In Black 3 than X-Men 3 though. It was worth the wait.

I see someone managed to steal the to the day care computer room.

Looking forward to this movie. Seen a lot of decent reviews. Not expecting groundbreaking but expecting to be entertained.

Hmm it's Mr. Bumbray reviewing a Marvel movie, I'm posting before I read the review, how much did he spoil if he hated it?

Let me put this way: go see the movie first and then Chris will describe in detail for you the movie you just saw.

I swear every Marvel film gets an 8 out of 10.. and they are not all that good.. its like they just give it an 8 to appease the fans.. If they give it a true rating there will be backlash (too low), if they are too high the opposing fans will rage, so they give it an 8. I wish the review were a little more true to what the films truly are, cause I'm sorry Marvel films are not all that good at all. Some are, and are deserving of an 8 and so on, but for the most part they are over rated.

Iron man and gotg and possibly winter soldier are lights. The rest are 6's or lower.

If Iron Man, GOTG and Winter Soldier are eights then this is an eight.

Great review as usual, Mr. Bumbray!

I won't lie, I was worried about this movie after all the Edgar Wright shenanigans and the somewhat out of nowhere hiring of Reed to replace him. It wasn't until some of the later trailers (specifically the one that played up the father-daughter aspect) that finally got me on board with this. After the over the top zaniness of Age of Ultron (which I thoroughly enjoyed from a character and thematic point of view, though I certainly see its flaws), I keep getting the feeling that Ant-Man will be

After the over the top zaniness of Age of Ultron (which I thoroughly enjoyed from a character and thematic point of view, though I certainly see its flaws), I keep getting the feeling that Ant-Man will be the perfect palette cleanser, choosing to go low stakes and personal instead of oversized and epic. Looking forward to seeing this!

8 out of 10 is fine by me. I got a vibe of the first Iron Man movie from watching Ant-Man's trailer and behind the scenes. If that's the case, I'm all game.
