Marvel did it again. Just when you think they may have a flop on their hands, they produce a giant winner in Ant-Man. This is no small feat with their 12th consecutive #1 opening. The movie was hilarious, much funnier than the forgettable Avengers: Age of Ultron. More laugh out loud moments than The Guardians of the Galaxy, in my humble opinion (hold my tongue, I know). The dialogue was snappy, and the heist approach was fresh for a superhero flick.
The only bug spray I have to unload is the hero-villain setup. Haven’t we been there done that in Iron Man 1 when Tony Stark had to defeat the crazed CEO of his company who had developed his own super suit? Just saying…
Am I stomping on the ant hill or maybe just making a big deal over a tiny detail?
