Review:

Antman. I really, really, really wasn’t sure about this movie. Really

I’d never read the comic and until I hear rumours of it being made, I’d never even heard of it. I thought it was some lame attempt on Marvels part to force some silly new franchise on the public.

I. Was. Wrong.

Silliness aside, this was a great movie. Somewhat typical of Marvel (underdog wins the day) but entertaining the way only Marvel can do. The few references to Marvels other franchise was nice too, although I doubt there will be a crossover between Antman and the Avengers, or even a cameo on Agents of Shield, although, if they ever decide to turn this into a television show, I’d watch it.

Side note: Husband really, really liked it and considering he’s so picky, that’s saying a lot.

 

5 out of 5.
