Marvel's Ant-Man is an action packed movie, which does not disappoint its audiences. It combines the science fiction and action genres to create a fun and exciting movie that has been dubbed as the next blockbuster film. Like all Marvel Movies, it is light-hearted, yet exciting to watch. This story follows a scientist named Scott Lang, who finds himself in the middle of a superhero story.
While the first part has great action, a lot of the characters do not get enough screen time, yet the director John Hughes shows a lot of passion, talent and his fantastic performance in this movie will make you a fan of him in no time. The movie takes place in a futuristic city called New York, where Scott Lang works as a substitute school teacher and takes care of his family's kid named Hope Van Dyne. Hope is the only daughter of a wealthy businessman named Dr. Hank Pym.
Upon seeing the Ant-Man suit, Hope cannot believe that she has become a superhero. She does not know how the suit can help her in any way, but she has the powers of flight. Hope's mother would worry if Hope becomes a superhero because of her parents' money and her future, so that is why Hope is always with her friend Pepper Potts. Hope has been doing well until the introduction of her father, Hank Pym, a renowned scientist who's the head of his own Pym Technology.
The movie focuses on the small moments between the two friends. We see the unique and cute moments, which happen almost every day. It is also a surprise for most viewers about what happens between Hank and Hope; how does a father and daughter become friends?
The story of the movie is not about only Scott Lang, but his best friend, played by Michael Douglas, who is also playing heroic roles and he brings a lot of tension to the movie. Meanwhile, during the night, when everyone else in the city is asleep, Scott wakes up, to his nightmare where he has been abducted by the bad guys, who also takes Hope captive.
In the beginning of the movie, we know that Scott Lang has the power of Ant-Man, but we are not given any details about his power and origin. As a result, the viewer cannot connect with him at all. But soon, the storyline of the movie is solved and the viewers understand what this power really is and what exactly the scientist was doing.
At the end of the movie, the team couldn't do anything when they fail to rescue their friend. When they return home, they find out that Hope and Scott were separated. There are only a few minutes left until the movie ends, when the heroic action starts again.
In the movie, we get to witness some strong action scenes, which include fighting with a strange and evil villain, trying to escape from a cage, making of a new suit, and rescuing a friend. You can enjoy this movie without watching too much suspense and watching the villain, because the movie is not overly dramatic.
