At The Movies with TB: Ant Man Movie Review!
A bloke goes to jail and gets out … for whistle-blowing, being sacked and burgling the bosses that sacked him after he dobbed on them … or something.
A scientist can make little people … shhhh … it’s been a secret for decades …
The scientist’s assistant now runs the scientists lab after the scientist thumped the assistant and was then sacked from his own business (? yeah, that’s what I thought too).
The assistant finally finds out how to shrink living cells … notwithstanding the – Experimental Death of cuddly lambs C34 and C35 (one can only assume 33 preceded them).
The scientist’s daughter works for the assistant but plots with her dad.
The scientist’s tricks the ex-con into burgling his house – and putting on the Ant-Man suit …
The ex-con “accidentally” shrinks himself … Whoaa!
Now the ex-con has an ex-wife and a little daughter who he can’t visit ’cause he doesn’t have any money … so he agrees to become the Ant-Man to make a few quid (so he can see his daughter once in a while) and control lots of ants … ’cause they can lift fifty times their own weight y’know!
The scientist’s daughter gets ropey ’cause she wants to wear the ant suit and she knows the lab “inside out”.
The Ant-Man has three dopey mates … naturally … the Latino bloke can throw his voice into many other actors as he tells his tales … funny …
Ant-Man and the other three … one’s a Russian … finally blow up a big lab while the assistant scientist who has managed to shrink himself to look like a wasp goes around zapping stuff with two blue laser weapons …
The Wasp Man visits the little girl and Ant Man is not happy, there’s a big ant made who lives happily ever after …
Ant Man and the Wasp fight. Ant Man wins.
Ant Man is really good friends with his wife and her new fiancé – (did I mention he’s a cop?) – and his little daughter is happy and has a new pet …
Ant Man is then in the scientist’s house and the scientist catches his daughter and Ant Man.
Pros: Funny script, great graphics, well acted (even Michael Douglas), worth a big screen visit, The Minister likes Marvel movies (credit for TB 🙂 )
Cons: Bit slow in places, it is a fkn Marvel movie FFS!
