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
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.
The screenwriters (Rudd among them) frequently mock their own sci-fi jargon, their snarkiness the strong suit in a movie offering little else except souped-up car chases.
A light and sunny entry in the ongoing Marvel canon that gets by on the cast's easygoing chemistry.
There's a fresh sense of looseness, lots of play and pockets of weird humor... That's the stuff that makes the movie really sing - not sting.
But for the most part, the two hours you'll spend running around with Marvel's Ant pals is fun and doesn't have the same emotional investment Infinity War or even Black Panther did earlier this year. And, for once in the MCU, that's kind of refreshing.
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.
