Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Review


Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp, Cassie Lang, Janet Van Dyne, and Dr. Hank Pym are thrown into a new adventure when they are unexpectedly transported to the Quantum Realm. There they find themselves up against the biggest threat they have ever had to face, Kang the Conqueror. 


Going into the theater, I expected the traditional Ant-Man and the Wasp film. Instead I was thrown into a new world. The Quantum Realm is a mixture of Marvel and Star Wars, as there are rebellions, different universes, aliens and guards very similar to storm troopers. Though the Quantum Realm was a sight to see, the plot of the film was lacking. It felt like watching a filler movie that was simply explaining the backstory of a new supervillain in the Marvel Universe. 


Though the plot wasn’t as interesting as the other two Ant-Man movies, the characters still were fun to watch. Cassie’s transformation into a superhero was entertaining and refreshing as she pushed Ant-Man to be not only a better superhero but also a more attentive father. Paul Rudd was cracking his usual dad jokes throughout the film and also pushing his memoir “Look Out For the Little Guy,” which had lines that made the audience laugh. 


I had high hopes for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania as I really enjoyed the first two movies in the trilogy, but though the characters were entertaining, the lacking plot overshadowed the actors and actresses performances.
