Ant-Man: A Review
When it was first announced that Marvel was going to make an Ant-Man movie, I think most people thought they had lost their minds. Sure, Ant-Man had been a founding member of the Avengers back in the early 60’s, but most people had no idea who he was.
Then Guardians of the Galaxy happened, plus Edgar Wright was going to direct. Many were willing to give Marvel a chance. At least they were until Wright and Marvel parted ways. Most were back to square one wondering how in the world Marvel was going to make a good movie out of an obscure hero who shrinks and is called Ant-Man.
Well, wonder no more.
Andrew and I went to see this marvel of a movie (pun intended) Friday night. We had looked forward to it since seeing all of the previews and trailers. The question was, could it live up to our expectations?
Ant-Man is the story of the relationships between two fathers and two daughters. Both relationships have their obstacles to overcome. One is trying to reconcile with his after spending some time in prison. The other keeps pushing his away while being overprotective.
It is also a heist movie, a buddy movie, a comedy and a drama. In other words, it combines several different sources as Marvel continues to expand its comic book movie universe.
If you don’t know by now, we loved it. We recommend it and are glad that it was the latest number one movie for Marvel.
