A brand new character coming out of the Marvel Universe to the big the screen, makes me nervous because Marvel in recent years have done so well with their movies you just know at some point they will slip up. Not saying they haven’t but by in large the recent batch of movies have been a huge success.
Ant-Man was a character that I knew nothing about, which is no surprise to you guys that follow this blog as in some respects I lead a very sheltered life, but that was also a good thing because other than seeing the trailer it gave me a fresh view on the movie instead of being influenced by external factors. I have to admit that the balance was there in this movie they had the right amount of drama and action, it was some where on par with Guardians of the Galaxy as it was slightly slower paced for me than the Iron Man and Avenger Movies. There was also a nice tie into The Avengers so it will be interesting to see if/when Ant-Man will be part of The Avengers team.
The acting in this movie for me was really good, it was strange seeing Michael Douglas in a Marvel movie but he did an awesome job, and played the part really well. After talking about Batman and DC over the last couple of weeks due to my game of choice I did find the villain really quite interesting in the movie due to the fact that with most Marvel Villains he wasn’t conflicted at all unlike DC villains, that said though I noticed that the Heroes in this movie were a little more conflicted.
Overall i would highly recommend this movie, which is no surprise and I would give this movie a 8/10 it was good and worth watching but it just didn’t have that final blockbuster feeling like other Marvel Movies have.
