CNET Top 5
The best and worst things about Ant-Man and the WaspMarvel Cinematic Universe movie No. 20 is out right now. Here's what's awesome about it and what's less than marvelous.
These are the top five best and worst things about Ant-Man and the Wasp. The 20th Marvel cinematic universal movie is out and there's a lot to discuss. If you wanna skip to the worst section, skip to this time code, 2:07, otherwise, let's talk about the best. And there will be some spoilers. You've been [UNKNOWN]. At number five is at Luis narration scene. In the first Ant-Man, there's a great scene where the character Luis tells a story about a tip he received. Every piece of dialog is spoken by Luis, and his voice Voice, without regard to what the original people sound like. In the sequel, we get a very similar storytelling, but this time, Evangeline Lilly and Paul Rudd get new voices. The scene delivers. Number 4, family comes first. Ant-Man as a character is pretty grounded. He wants to do right by his family. In the sequel, you've got Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne trying to get the original Wasp home. Then there is a complicated relationship between ghosts and Bill Foster,even when the story gets crazy with the ant-man being gigantic or scenes get tense the underlying thing that matters to each character is familly,and when the film is going on and on about quantum this and quatum that it's good to have a solid footing. At number 3 are Complicated Rivals. Marvel movies have had a bad guy problem. Many of then have been forgettable or interchangeable. Anyone remember Whiplash, or Malikit, the Ron and the Accuser? With Ant-Man and the Wasp, the trailer is essentially to say Ghost is the villain. But here's the thing, she's really not. She has her own back story and logical motivation For her actions, they just so happen to conflict with Ant-Man and the Wasp. Bill Foster and Hank Pym also have a complicated history, which brings me to number two, hints of evil Pym. If you guys have read the exploits of Hank Pym in the comics, you know he's not all good. The loving relationship the movie show us between the original Ant-Man and the Wasp It's a little different from the books, in this movie, Pym has some serious issues with Bill Foster dating back to when they were partners. Pym is also partly responsible for the creation of Ghost due to his [UNKNOWN]. Hank also spent some time in the quantum room which [UNKNOWN] cause some mental issues. So, maybe, we'll see a full on evil Pym in the future. Or maybe in the past. So, before we get to number one let's talk about what was bad about Antman and the Wasp. At number five, it's more of the same. The first Antman movie was a heist film. The sequel pretty much a heist movie too. Number four, lack of Michelle Pfeiffer. She is prominently features in marketing materials but she's not really in the movie all that much. That brings us to number three, glowy hands of convenience. Number two, tons of exposition and quantum jargon, it gets to the point Scott even makes a joke about adding the word quantum to everything. And at number one, that mid-credits scene. It was kind of a downer for such a fun movie. It was necessary But it was flat out evil. And here is an honorable mention, or is it dishonorable mention? Too much was given away by the trailers. Some truly awesome third act scenes were spoiled by the trailers. Stop doing that, knock it off! And the number one best thing about the Ant-Man and the Wasp film is Hope Van Dyne's Wasp. The Van Dyne character was already set up as someone who could take care of herself, once she's in that suit, she's incredible. It also seemed as though the filmmakers made an effort to make the Wasp's abilities different from Ant-Man's. Wasp kicks so much **** throughout the film, the movie should really be called The Wasp With Antman. Yes, Antman is very good and has some great scenes, but the Wasp really shines.
