Ant Man and the Wasp Quantumania review

Ant Man and the Wasp Quantumania is the first MCU film of phase five. After the Avengers defeated Thanos Scott enjoys being praised as a hero but is sad that he lost five years of his daughter’s life. During that five year gap she created a machine that accidently transports them and the Pymm family to the Quantum Realm which is being rules by Kang the Conqueror. This film sadly doesn’t have the same charm, wit, and humor as the first two Ant Man films. I thought the Quantum Realm was a visually cool looking location. Some of the locations looked and felt like something from Star Wars.

While some of the actors such as Paul Rudd, Kathryn Newton, and Michelle Pfeiffer gave good performances, characters such as Hope and Hank unfortunately felt very underused in this film. What’s odd about that is that this film is literally called “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” so you’d think Hope would have a huge role. Bill Murray was also wasted here since he only has 2 scenes with him and just felt like a pointless cameo. Luis and the wombats don’t even make an appearance. The standout in the cast was definitely Jonathan Majors as Kang who was very threatening. I’m really looking forward to see what they do with Kang later on. SPOILERS: I also liked MODOK who turns out to actually be Darren Cross from the film.  

Ant Man 3 wasn’t the strongest phase opening film in the MCU and while it is better than the 2nd film, I still think the first film was better. While it lacks the previous film’s charm and most of the original cast felt underused it still has an threatening and very well established villain.
