Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Movie Review

Set almost entirely in the world of computer-generated imagery, the cast of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania must surely be up for a new category of awards, most time spent in front of a green screen. Taking it all outside the realm of the real also unleashes some incredibly imaginative sets and creatures.

Paul Rudd has always been that anomaly in the Marvel catalogue in that it is easier to see him as a comic presence rather than a heroic one and that continues this time around. That circumstance makes for the film’s most charming moments. Once things drop into the world of zeros and ones, it’s just a matter of business as usual.



The Ant-Man films have lived mostly outside the Avengers’ based chapters and Quantumania feels amongst the most separate. There are a few mentions, including a funny scene with M.O.D.O.K. (Corey Stoll) but it’s not until the final of the two crazy credits that things get pulled into the larger world of the MCU.

Much thought has gone into creating arresting visuals and inhabitants of the Quantum Realm and in that regard, it’s an impressive display. The storyline and the character arcs of its main players unfortunately form some of its least impressive attributes. It is still enjoyable but seems a minor pleasure compared to other outings in the world created by the late and great Stan Lee.
