So, when I was offered the chance to see Ant-Man, well, I didn't know what I was getting myself into. Sure, Marvel does a great job with the movies, and sure, I love all the Avengers movies, and sure, it was a chance to see Paul Rudd... so, I wasn't too worried. But I had no expectations going in.
I can now proudly announce that I am a huge Ant-Man fan! Okay, maybe I shouldn't use the word "huge" when referring to Ant-Man. Sorry, little guy!
What is it about, you ask?
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.
I loved every minute of this movie! Well, except when Scott Lang, aka Paul Rudd got punched in his handsome face... but I digress. I loved the story development, I loved the journey Scott Lang took to discover his "inner hero". Add in great action sequences and you've got yourself a great movie. Plus, this show was funny! Really funny! I loved when Scott Lang was trying to learn how to control the ants, very funny stuff (and a little creepy-crawly too!)
Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas were great and Corey Stoll was a great bad guy! I especially loved Ant-Man's human side-kicks!
Go see Ant-Man! I think you'll really like it, and maybe even get a new appreciation for ants. Oh yeah, and don't forget to stay through the ending credits. There are two surprises!
I got to see this in 3D IMAX and wow! Wow! let me say it again... Wow! If you get a chance, I highly recommend seeing this in 3D. It was incredible!
I believe I will be taking all my family to see Ant-Man this weekend! It opens today, July 17th in theaters nationwide. Have fun!
