Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania Non-Spoiler Movie Review

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania Non-Spoiler Movie Review

Jay Cochran - February 19, 2023
The MCU’s 5th Phase kicked off this weekend with the third installment in the Ant-Man movie franchise. Not having been overly impressed with Phase 4 and not having seen anything in the trailers that particularly stood out, I went into this movie with somewhat low expectations. Really the only reason I bothered going to see this one in the theater was to see the introduction to the MCU’s next Thanos-level threat with Kang The Conqueror played by actor Jonathan Majors. We had gotten a brief look at Majors in the Disney+ Loki Series playing one of the Kang variants “He Who Remains,” which by the way is not the same character we see in this movie.

So first I will say I was pleasantly surprised by this movie and enjoyed it much more than I thought I was going to. While I thought Major’s Kang was the highlight of the movie (which is good since we will be seeing a lot more of him in the future), I also enjoyed other aspects of the movie. Out of the three Ant-Man movies this ended up being my favorite. Most of this movie takes place in the Quantum Realm which was first introduced in the last Ant-Man movie, but in this one we really get a deep dive look at it. The visuals of this movie came off looking really good, especially seeing it on an IMAX 3D screen. We also get introduced to some pretty cool and unique looking alien characters in this one, and the overall movie has a very strong Jack Kirby look and feel to it which I think will make a lot of old time comic book readers happy.

Another thing I really liked about this movie is that it spent a lot of time focusing on not just Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne/Wasp (Evangeline Lilly), but also on the original Ant-Man and Wasp Hank Pym (Michael Douglass) and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfieiffer). In the previous movies they played much more in the way of secondary roles, but here they were very much front and center throughout the entire thing. Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton) is also brought to the forefront, and I thought she did a fairly decent job. I am sure we will be seeing her again in the MCU.

The movie wasn’t perfect by any means as there were some moments that got somewhat corny and/or predictable. Those who are fans of M.O.D.O.K from the comics may not like the MCU interpretation here. If you’ve seen the trailers then you likely know M.O.D.O.K is a familiar face here. I won’t say I hated him, but some of the interactions with him came off more silly than anything. He was definitely in this one to bring many of the comedic moments in the movie which I will say seemed to have been toned down from other recent MCU movies. I am all for a little comedy interjected into these movies but other MCU movies like say Love And Thunder have taken that aspect to extreme heights and I am glad to see that kind of thing toned down a bit here.

At the end of the day, the thing I liked the most about this movie is that it has gotten me excited for what is to come next in the MCU which is something I feel was missing throughout most of Phase 4.

Grade: B+
