Ok, so I unfortunately missed him in cinemas, but I finally got to watch him last Saturday. Wow! It was not what I was expecting, but it sure was awesome! I loved everything about it. Just like most Marvel movies, they took some parts from the comics, but changed the others. Of course, you do not need to be a comic book nerd to know that in the Marvel comics Hank Pym is Ant-man, not some Scotty Lang. But I sure did love that. Marvel probably changes details like that to make sure that people who read the comics don’t immediately know the entire movie by looking at the title. And that’s great.
Ant-man is the first single-character all-new Marvel movie since the Avengers, so you would think that the Avengers would somehow appear in the movie. And they did! Scott “borrowed” Stark’s tech as well as having an epic fight with Falcon. The second end-credit scene was super and of course you can see the other half of that scene in the Civil War trailer.
The special effects were pretty good with scenes like Ant-man and Yellow Jacket really quickly shrinking. And of course the Thomas the Tank Engine scene was awesome. It’s not hard to realise that all the scenes where they are small are CGI, but I really don’t mind. They did a super job anyway.
I would rate this movie 8.5. It’s 1 & 1/2 away from 10, not because it had too many flaws, but because it had some miss opportunities. For example, we saw Hydra in the movie, but why couldn’t they put in Ward instead of all those new faces. Also SHIELD was shown, but where was Coulson and Fury? Fine, fine. I know that Samuel Jackson’s contract is ending soon, and Marvel are saving it for the Infinity War, but it would have still been quite cool to see some familiar faces.
Anyway, thanks for reading this pie. As always, it would be great if you could fill in the poll and the contact form. If you really like my blog, then a follow would also be very much appreciated. Make sure to come back on Monday for another post.
