Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has its moments, but it took me a while to really get into the story!!!
What I Like:
The one thing that really stood out for me was Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror, I liked his backstory and showing how menacing he could be, he is a formidable villain for sure
The So So:
-The world building of the Quantum Realm is big and weird, sort of like Strange World, with that said, the world building did make this film drag a lot, with that said it is an interesting world to learn more about
-The special effects was cool, but some of the scenes you can tell it was clearly green screen or CGI’d
-The comedy is hit or miss, I mean a lot of laughs is really because of the charm of Paul Rudd, but his charm can only last so long
What I Didn’t Like:
-M.O.D.O.K., without spoiling it, I didn’t like his character development, he does look weird, but that’s the least of my worries, I just didn’t like how they used him
With the superheroes of Ant-Man and the Wasp you get what you expect, and I like the family dynamic it brings out with these heroes. In regards to the world building of the Quantum Realm, it is something you have to get used to, and it can drag a bit. Yes I love Kang the Conqueror, but didn’t like M.O.D.O.K. With all that said, it is still a fun Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Just not the upper tier of great MCU films!!!
(Sidenote: Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths – After all his Oscar glory, director Alejandro G. Inarritu makes another film. I was just surprised it was on Netflix. With that being said, I can see why it got nominated for an Oscar for Best Cinematography. Other than that, I really didn’t get into the story. I didn’t get it, it dragged for 2 and a half hours, and I’m not sure if this is a snippet in the mind of Inarritu himself. Needless to say, this is one of the boring films by Inarritu, and you would think after 6 years he would come up with something great!!!
