Kathy vs. T.K’s View of ANT MAN and the WASP – Rated PG-13

Ant Man and the wasp

ANT MAN and the WASP – Rated PG-13 – 1 hr. 58 mins. 

DIRECTOR:  Peyton Reed 

WRITERS:  Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Paul Rudd, Andrew Barrer, Gabriel Ferrari 

STARRING:  Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Pena, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale, Hannah John-Kamen and Abby Ryder Fortson

As we venture back into the world of ANT MAN/a.k.a. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), it seems that he is still on house arrest from his missteps with Captain America, a couple years back…

Enjoying family life with his daughter Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson), Scott can’t wait till he is free  to take on this fatherhood thing back into the outside world.  But it seems that Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and his beautiful daughter Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) are going to have to change Scott’s plans, as he is an integral part of their next mission, as they can’t seem to find a way to accomplish their operation without him…

I give ANT MAN and the WASP a rating of MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN:  Rudd’s endearing persona and charm are even more perfect as ANT MAN this time around, as his quest to be the perfect dad, and his feelings for Hope continue to evolve through every frame of this film ~ Plus, regardless if he’s BIG OR SMALL~Ant Man manages to DO IT ALL! Lilly is also absolutely fabulous all along the way as well, taking on a more significant role as the WASP, bringing to life the superhero partner that Ant Man can’t manage to function without.  And Douglas, Pena, T.I., Greer and Cannavale were also perfect this time around too, bringing back the magic of their characters from the original ANT MAN (2015), while adding the perfect cohesion to this film, every step of the way.

Add in the fabulous additions of Fishburne, John-Kamen, and Pfeiffer, playing Janet van Dyne to the storyline, and you have one absolutely marvelous film, leading the continuation of the MARVEL UNIVERSE into hyperdrive…

So, stay out of the summer heat this weekend and go catch ANT MAN and the WASP at a theater near you!  Rudd and Lilly are the perfect dynamic duo to make all your SUMMER MOVIE DREAMS come true! And don’t forget to stay until all the credits are over yet again… as the last frame of this one is as integral as it gets…
