We recently saw 'Ant Man', the latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Although there is a lot of action there also is more comedy than other MCU movies which we liked. The plot of the movie involves shrinking technology, developed by Hank Pym (the original Ant Man) played by Michael Douglas, and keeping it safe from evildoers. The opening scene in 1989 involving a younger Hank Pym and his resignation from SHIELD that has Peggy Carter and the father of Tony Stark (Iron Man) was neat.
Flash-forward to present day and Hank Pym's protege has duplicated his shrinking technology so there is a need for a new Ant Man. Enter Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. Evangeline Lilly plays Hope Kym, Hank's estranged daughter.
Like we said lots of action and neat tie-ins to the other MCU movies. There is a scene with an Avenger and Ant Man will be in future movies. The requisite Stan Lee cameo was pretty cool too. As with all MCU movies there are extra bonus material in the credits. This time about 2 minutes into the credits is extra Ant Man material and there is more at the end of the credits.
Although not our favorite MCU movie it was still a good one and sure beat the heat being in a cool movie theater.
Till next time,
