Review:

Following on from events in Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang a.k.a. Ant-Man (Paul Rudd - Ant-Man) is still serving time for fighting alongside ‘Cap’. Ankle-tagged but only days away from completing his house arrest, he’s also been forbidden to have contact with Dr. Hank Pym, or Hank’s daughter Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly – The Hobbit; Lost). (Though, since he stole the Ant-Man suit - Hank’s life’s work - destroyed it and made them both fugitives in the process, this isn’t really a problem for him anyway…)

Meanwhile, since Scott’s return from the Quantum Realm in Ant-Man, Hank and Hope think there might be a way to bring back Hope’s mother, Janet, (Michelle Pfeiffer) who was trapped there decades ago. Thanks to Scott however, they have to complete their research in secret, and are always looking over their shoulders. Events conspire to drag Scott back into their lives again, and he wants to help (really he does!), but he also doesn’t want to go back to jail… Though their plans are constantly being jeopardised by either the police, who are trying to arrest them, or dangerous criminals who will steal and sell on their lab to anyone if the price is right.

This has all the great action sequences and stunning visuals that you know and love from a Marvel film. Paul Rudd is effortlessly likeable and his usual comic timing adds to the great fun the writers must have had with the ability to shrink and enlarge objects at will.
