Your Average Ant-Man Review (No Spoilers)

ant-man-1435327553

 

As far as comic book/superhero movies go I wasn’t excited at al for the release of Ant-Man. Yeah i’m a hug comic and movie nerd, yes I have a titanic sized crush on Paul Rudd and yes Michael Douglas having sex with Matt Damon in “Behind the Candelabra” is still burned into my retinas (Maybe that’s why I didn’t want t see it). Ant-Man is a a lesser known (well, less mainstream) superhero, one that didn’t seem to stack up against The Hulk, or even Iron Man when it came to silver screen presence. Boy was I wrong. Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang was a delightful combination of wit, badassery, and empathy. Not to mention the Ant-man suite is as badass as any superhero costume can get (Ironman included).

Another surprising aspect of the film was its frequent connection with the Marvel cinematic universe. Way more references to The Avengers than I thought (plus a little nod to your friendly neighborhood web crawler?!?!?!?).

All-in-all I really enjoyed Ant-Man. I feel like it can stack up right along side the other Avengers stand-alones. Would I like to se a sequel with Paul Rudd as Ant-Man? Yeah I would, whether or not Ant-Man gets a sequel is yet to be known, but we can at least expect to see him in Civil War coming in 2016.

I give it a solid 8.15677654987 #MattStars

Hell of a time for comic book nerds.
