The movie starts off with Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) playing with his daughter Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson) , the U.S government has placed him under a strict two-year house arrest after his rendezvous with Captain America. Therefore, he’s gotten pretty creative with being at home all day; he plays the drums, builds forts, and even learns magic tricks. He has three days till he is off house arrest when he has a supernatural dream. He dreams of Hope’s (Evangeline Lilly) mom Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer) who has been stuck inside a subatomic quantum realm for thirty years. He leaves Hank (Michael Douglas) a voicemail telling him of the dream when suddenly he is taken by Hope. Hope and Hank have built technological fortress that allows Ant-man to enter the quantum; they built it in hopes of being able to track down Janet. And once they realized that Scott dreamt her that their brains must be connected like an antenna.
However, a lot of obstacles get in the way of them reaching Janet. Which leads them through an up and down journey of trying to reunite Hope and Hank with Janet.
The film has a strong cast with Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas. There performances were solid and hilarious. Rudd is the perfect balance between father and superhero. Evangeline is the tough, ass-kicker that stand by her family, she is a protector. And Michael Douglas in the brilliant and respected physicist who longs to reunite his wife and daughter.
However, the characters that stood out in this second movie were Randall Park who plays Jimmy Woo, a S.H.I.E.LD agent and Micheal Pena who plays Luis, Lang’s closest friend. Both of them added a huge portion of comedy to the film and all their scenes were enjoyable and entertaining. Jimmy’s geekiness was pleasurable and Luis’s regular guy gimmick was off the charts funny. Both were highlights of the film.
There are two end credits. One immediately after the film and one after the credits. The first one was absolutely bone chilling! Without spoiling it, it makes perfect sense after watching Avengers: Infinity War and moves the story forward. The second end scene is supposed to be funny but truthfully could have been better, not worth the extra few minutes waiting for it.
Will there be a third movie?
That’s the question.
