Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)

STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

Verdict – 2/5

 
Pros –
1) That post-credit scene where Pym, Hope, and Janet disintegrate.
2) Return of the Original Wasp.
3) Randall Park as Jimmy Woo proved a better comic relief than Michael Peña as Luis.

 

Cons –
1) The absence of a co-Avenger.Not a single Avenger played a supporting role neither a cameo. Weirdly, the Ant-Man universe is cut-off from the main Avenger universe.
2) Ava Starr / Ghost subplot – unnecessary and absurd sub-plot.

Verdict – 0/5

 

PROS –

CONS –
1) Silly Main Plot: Heist
2) First MCU film without the trademark “Jon Favreau” essence since Iron-Man (2008). It’s just a check-list.

4) Paul Rudd: seems constrained by the director
5) It was supposed to be an “Edgar Wright” movie
