Marvel’s latest addition to their universe Ant-Man opens in theaters everywhere today!! I was able to screen the movie last month while attending the press junket in LA. Being one of the first people to see it I walked in not knowing much about Ant-Man and not quite sure how I would feel about the movie. I left the movie loving it and not disappointed at all!! Here is a little bit about Ant-Man.
“The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.”
Paul Rudd does a fantastic job playing Scott Lang he brings humor, heart, and a little sarcasm to everything he does. You instantly fall in love and want to root him on during his journey as the Ant-Man. Of course what good is a Hero without his Antourage? Michael Pena almost steals the movie with his comedic stylings and fantastic character! I honestly had a great time with this movie. I loved the humor that was always there and the action was fantastic!! I have heard some say that they felt this was more of a heist movie than a super hero movie with a very Oceans 11 feel. I can agree with some parts of that but at the same time loved the feel of the heist, having his “Crew”, and saving the day.
I’ve had a few people ask me about taking their kids to see it.. to that I say do it!! There is very mild language ( they hear worse in the store trust me) and a fun action filled story that I think kids who enjoy these movies will enjoy! They have done amazing things with CGI and hey.. you can even learn a little more about ants in the process.
Make sure you see Ant-man in theaters EVERYWHERE starting today!! You wont want to miss it… and remember.. Stay after the credits!!
