The Incredible Shrinking Ant-Man

I got a pass from my lovely bride to go catch a late evening show of Ant-Man. I enjoyed it greatly. It was pretty much everything that an old Ant-Man fan might hope for. I suspect those less well-versed in the history of the MU will enjoy it too.

High points:

  • Paul Rudd does a fine job as Scott Lang.
  • Michael Douglas does a fine job as an older Hank Pym.
  • Hank Pym does not get crapped on by the writers. (After what has happened in the MU over the years, this was in some doubt.)
  • I happened to catch a 3-D show. For this film, it was worth it. Some of the shots reminded me of the original Tron.
  • Yes, I am old. :)
  • Good script.
  • Good effects.
  • And a Hayley Atwell cameo.

    So what's not to like?
