Review: The Brilli-Ant Man Movie

David A., Anchor

Ant-Man was released in theaters on June 29, 2015. Although it’s been seven years, it never gets old. This movie is a real entertainer that will leave you amazed every time you watch it. Just a few days ago, I saw this movie again and so today I will be sharing my opinion about it. Ant-Man running with a colony of ants in the movie Ant-Man

The movie is set in San Francisco, 2015. The plot begins after Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) was forced out of his company by Darren Cross (Corey Stoll). Years later, he decides to recruit Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), an expert thief who is just released from prison, to retrieve a dangerous weapon from Cross, which he had stolen from Hank. When Hank recruits Scott, he and his daughter Hope Pym (Evangeline Lilly) train Scott to use a special shrinking suit and become Ant-Man. As Ant-Man, Scott can control ants and even shrink to their size. Ant man later uses his skills to fight Darren, also known as the Yellowjacket, with the help of his friends Luis (Michael Pena) and Kurt (David Dastmalchiar). Ant Man then successfully prevents the Yellowjacket from using Hank’s technology as a weapon for evil. 

All the actors in this movie did a very fascinating job portraying their character. Some of them you just love for their personality. For example, I liked Luis because of how he was hilarious along with his friends. And of course, how could I leave out the spectacular superhero of Marvel, Ant Man. Ant man is another humorous character in the movie that puts you in a lighter mood instantly with his comedy. He also fulfills the role of Ant-Man very well, performing his character amazingly. All-in-all, the cast has done a very good job, and the movie wouldn’t be the same without them.

This film is light-hearted and kid friendly. It is funny, entertaining and can be watched at any time. The realism of the film also made it very relatable as well. The action scenes of when Ant man transforms into a tiny hero were also done very well. For example, in one of the scenes while he is shrunk in a tub , the water starts to flow and it looks like he is in a tsunami.

The moral that I took from this movie is to never doubt the skills that you have, even if it may look small.

Any group of people would love this film. I would recommend it to someone who enjoys watching funny, action movies. Though, if you watch more total dark and destructive movies, you may not enjoy it as much. The rating of this movie is PG – 13. Overall, this is a great movie to watch, and I hope everyone will love it.

On a scale of 1 – 5 (5 being the highest) I would rate this movie a 5.
