Story: Scott Lang (Rudd), a petty thief, is trained to wear and operate a super-strong, size-modifying suit by tech genius Dr Pym (Douglas). Lang needs to save humanity from destruction by thwarting the plans of the evil Darren Cross (Stoll), Pym's nemesis.

Review: To start with, the idea of a superhero character that can shrink down to infinitesimal size, become stronger the tinier he gets and command an infinite army of ants, sounds extremely interesting. Reed and team have crafted a superhero film that is not only action-packed (not excessively so), but also funny and thankfully devoid of bluster. At its heart though, this is a heist movie.

Cross was Pym's protege but went renegade and tried to crack Pym's human-shrinking formula to create his own kind of 'ant man' suit - Yellowjacket. Pym knows that Cross will sell this deadly tech to the wrong people - something that can only bode ill for humanity. Lang is trained to infiltrate Cross's HQ and destroy Yellowjacket along with the entire facility. Pym's daughter Hope (Lilly) doubts Lang's competence for the task. That aside though, it's easy to discern the crackling chemistry between Lang and her from the outset.

Ant-Man's effects are often astounding - for one, flawlessly recreating a younger-looking Michael Douglas early on in the movie. Then of course, the plethora of ant scene renderings as well as other sequences, like Lang's journey into the sub-atomic realm.

But this isn't just a VFX flex-fest. Douglas' Pym could have had more of an edge (think Gordon Gekko) and Lilly is a bit ho-hum. However, Rudd's Lang is refreshingly self-effacing and charming. Pena is flat-out hilarious; apart from getting the last line of the film, he absolutely owns the scenes he's in. If he had a bigger part, doubtless he'd have stolen the show.

Guardians of the Galaxy ushered in a new flavor of superhero films - of fairly 'ordinary' people who learn to do extraordinary things - and this brings a more human angle to the film. Ant-Man continues the trend. Oh, and don't miss Marvel legend Stan Lee's cameo too!

frankly on paper this movie does not work. the idea is a big whopper. the plot has holes. the writing is sloppy, and michael douglas is here with the worst performance of his career. however, it still manages to entertain.
