“Ant-Man and the Wasp” Teen View






Review by Ian Delia

If you have seen the movie “Captain America: Civil War”, Ant- man made an appearance as a partner of Captain America. As an effect of that clash of the Avengers, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) was put on house arrest and wears an ankle monitor. He was also told to destroy the Ant-Man suit and never to make contact with Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) or his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly).

But like all superhero movies, the main characters never do what the authorities want them to do. It’s no different in this episode of Ant-Man as Pym enlists Scott to work with him to find his wife Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) who he feels is alive and lost in the Quantum Realm.

Having seen Janet during the battle in Civil War they are hoping that he may remember where she may be. So begins a quest that will take you on a wild roller coaster ride to the impossible. But first he must get his suit, get rid of the pesky ankle monitor and team up with the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly). Peyton Reed returns as director of Ant-Man and the Wasp and he uses most of the characters from his first outing.

Reed does a good job of using the massive amount of CGI in the film and accomplishes a tough task with excellent results. I especially like the trip into the Quantum Realm. The visual journey is like looking into a Kaleidoscope of colors as you travel into the unknown. For Ant-Man this is the trip of a lifetime traveling through an infinite amount of dimensions.

This movie has introduced an old character but in a new part. Hope van Dyne is given a suit that Dr. Pym upgraded while Ant-Man was on house arrest. She then becomes the “Wasp”. With her new suit she has amazing abilities like Ant-Man, but she also has the exceptional modification that makes her fly.

In every Marvel movie there is a super villain and here she’s a criminal named “Ava”. (Hannah John-Kamen). When she becomes a villain she turns into “Ghost”. She has the ability to walk through walls and able to throw a physical punch from afar with a real fist. As for getting her powers, she was not given them using a suit like Ant-Man or wasp. Her powers were given to her due to a failed project in the quantum realm conducted by S.H.I.E.L.D.


The use of other Inventions in the movie will grasp your attention. There is now a remote which can grow and shrink items. Do you remember “Hot Wheels” the toy cars, well they become enlarged by the touch of a button on this remote and the car is completely derivable. Even Pym’s lab that is in a big building gets shrunk down to the size of a suit case. Very cool.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is rated by MPAA: Rated PG – 13 for some Sci-fi action violence, and use of profane language. (4 out of 5 Stars)
