I watched Antman a few months ago, but until now have been too busy to write a review on it. With it being summer, however, I finally found the time to do it! 🙂
Antman follows the life of Scott Lang – a thief who was just released from jail. His friend and fellow partner-in-crime picks him up. The viewer quickly learns that he has a daughter. Cassie. Scott tells his friend that he’s done with the life of being a thief – he has to start doing better. For his daughter.
The entire film is packed full of hilarious interactions between both the villain and the heroes. From unintended childlike remarks by Cassie – Antman’s daughter – that can be humorously appreciated by the older viewers for their meaning, to the laughable reactions of Scott Lang during his journey, it has many hilarious moments.
Scott, in my opinion, is one of the most relatable Marvel characters in terms of realistic reactions. When Hank – inventor of the Pym particle, asks him to sneak into a high security building to steal something from the *music escalates* bad guy, he responds with a, “I think our first move should be calling the Avengers.”
I love that. It’s so realistic to how most of us would react if we were in his situation.
Father-daughter relationships are really emphasized, I think, in Antman whether it be Scott and Cassie or Hank and Hope. They each have their struggles and issues, although, Hank and Hope’s more so. I enjoyed how Hank and Hope both in their own way offered advice or helped Scott in terms of Cassie with their own experiences and stories.
And of course, there was action as every Marvel movie has. Though this one was neat, since it was from a different perspective than the typical fighting: fighting at bug-size.
Overall, I really enjoyed Antman and would definitely recommend it. So readers, if you have seen Antman, what did you think of it?
