Three years after Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp is released. This film takes place in the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War. Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Pau Rudd) is under house arrest and enjoys spending time with his daughter, Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson). Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope Van Dyne/Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) urgently need Ant-Man's help to find Janet Van Dyne/the original Wasp (Michelle Pfeiffer) in the Quantum Realm. They have to overcome many obstacles along the way in order to get the quantum tunnel to work. Ant-Man and the Wasp is a light-hearted movie filled with timely humor and spectacular action scenes. I personally like this sequel better than the original Ant-Man. It's lots of fun to watch! Ant-Man/Scott Lang is a very likable character and a cool dad. The beauty and value of family connection are shown throughout the movie. The villains are not very villainous but still interesting. The 3 sidekicks are awesome, especially Luis (Michael Pena). He is hilarious. I'm glad to see the original cast return because the chemistry between them is excellent. I love the stunning visual effects of changing people and things into various sizes. Shrinking and enlarging work quite well to enhance comedy and action. Ant-Man and the Wasp is definitely a laugh-out-loud, entertaining film for the whole family.
P.S. Remember to stay and watch the post-credits scenes :)!
