I was pretty hyped up for this movie since it was supposed to be the first official arrival of Kang to set up The Kang Dynasty. It did deliver on Kang and The Kang Dynasty setup but not the way I expected. As reviews came out before the movie they were bad. That’s never a good sign. Audiences felt different for the most part. I heard from people that it was good not great, that it could have been better which has kind of been the theme of the last few Marvel movies. Sure most of the characters didn’t have much an arch if at all but it was fun and interesting. It was Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania.
It included a lot of the Ant-Man & Wasp movie qualities. It had some Scott Lang humor. The Quantum Realm was super cool, crazy, and interesting. The relationships between Ant family were fun and enjoyable including the new addition of Cassie Lang. Kang was a legit threat and terrifying person. MODOK was exactly what he should be as well. This film had a more serious tone than the others which is what people have been asking for from the MCU yet there were complaints this wasn’t funny enough.
Personally I enjoyed it quite a bit but I agree, it could have been better. A little more character development would have been appreciated and gone far especially with Scott. Though I’m not a huge fan of who MODOK is, it made sense and works. I was kind of hoping Kang would kill Scott or at least make it seem like it to establish Kang as more of a threat but the fear of what happened to Kang may be greater depending on the payout. The visuals were sick, the actors were awesome, and story was stellar. All in all I thought it was worth seeing in theaters and I’m looking forward to watching it again on Disney+.
Judgement: MUST SEE!
