Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)



Critic Consensus: A lighter, brighter superhero movie powered by the effortless charisma of Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, Ant-Man and The Wasp offers a much-needed MCU palate cleanser.

Critic Reviews for Ant-Man and the Wasp

All Critics (439) | Top Critics (81)

Director Peyton Reed and his army of screenwriters haven't made "Ant-Man And The Wasp" a terribly clever movie, but it's clever enough to keep you from reaching for bug spray. And in the summer, Marvel has apparently decided that's all that's required.

This feels like the movie Oceans 8 should've been.

March 5, 2019 | Full Review…

If the previous film was a bubbly champagne cocktail of a superhero movie, its sequel is something flatter and more concussive-akin to a series of vodka shots. Bottom line though, as long Paul Rudd is invited, it's still a party.

In "short," it's a pretty good time!

August 26, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It's featherweight fun that won't change your life, but that's perfectly OK.

August 25, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Its intent is limited to amusing and diverting for a couple of hours of high-summer fun. That it does.

Audience Reviews for Ant-Man and the Wasp

Light entertainment for those devoted fans of Marvel jonesing for a fix after Infinity War, Pt.1, and the Black Panther entries. There's nothing here to distract from anything serious over there, and that's the biggest failure, that they didn't even try to outdo themselves. This is a mid-level entry meant to be a mid-level entry, and they succeed in that regard. It's like you wanted a burger, fries and a coke meal deal but only got the french fries. Nonetheless, every thing is done well. Above reproach. Eh. They added Larry Fishburne and Michelle Pfeiffer, heavy hitters, and asked them to bunt. What?!?

Pretty much the definition of an okay movie. It's good for some giggles and action sequences, but not too much else. I can't say I am a huge fan of the Ant-Man series so far, the big appeal of this film was any answers to the ending of Avengers: Infinity War, and there really isn't much to that either. LIke the first Ant-Man, I probably won't remember this film when the third installment rolls around.

The hugely absurd, second-rate "quantum" science and the sloppy, harmless script are at least compensated by (relatively) effective action scenes and a (relatively) funny sense of humor, but the most ironic is that the only really interesting scene happens mid end-credits.
