Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Review.


Ben Rhoades, Staff Writer

Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is the third installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universes Ant Man series. The movie features Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly returning as Scott Lang/Ant Man and Hope van Dyne/Wasp, respectively. This time around, the two heroes are joined by Jonathan Majors as the villainous villain Kang the Conqueror, as well as Kathryn Newton as the mysterious and powerful Cassie Lang, a.k.a. Stature.

The movie starts off with Scott, Hope, Cassie, Hank, and Janet getting transported to the quantum realm by an invention gone wrong, splitting them up into two groups. Through traversing the strange world down below, they find each other again only to end up finding themselves on the run from Kang the Conqueror, a villain from the future who is seeking to take over the present. They enlist the help of Cassie, Scotts daughter, to help them stop Kang. As the movie progresses, we see Scott and Hope using their combined powers to fight Kang and his minions, while Cassie unlocks her own special abilities. The movie has some great action sequences, combining the Ant Man and Wasps sizechanging abilities with the Wasps flight and energy blaster, as well as some great special effects. We also get to explore the dark past of Janet Van Dyne and her experiences with the quantum realm, as well as how her time there led to a powerful butterfly effect. 

The movie also features some great comedic moments, courtesy of Paul Rudd and Jonathan Majors, which makes the movie a lot of fun to watch. Overall, I would recommend this movie if you are looking for something fun to do, or if you’re bored on a weekend.
