  • Ant-Man

    Ant-Man (2015)

    Rated PG-13, 117 min. Directed by Peyton Reed. Starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Peña, Bobby Cannavale, T.I., Martin Donovan and David Dastmalchian.

    Marvel's long-awaited Ant-Man project – a breezy, funny, well-crafted summer confection that more than makes up for this summer's overwrought Avengers entry – opens as electrical engineer-turned-thief Scott Lang (Rudd) is released from prison into the arms of Luis (Peña), a fellow ex-con with a hot tip on burgling some old guy’s house. That old guy ends up being Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas), a scientist who has discovered the key to shrinking anything to miniature size – technology which baddie Darren Cross (Stoll) now seeks to militarize. Soon, Pym enlists Lang to don an experimental suit, enabling him to shrink down and command ant armies at will, in order to retrieve Cross’ prototype, Yellowjacket. Many hijinks ensue in what is essentially the Marvel Universe's first straight-up comedy, and thankfully, it works. Ant-Man is infectious, silly entertainment, a popcorn flick that knows what it is and does what it does to an intoxicating degree. Read a full review of Ant-Man.
