This feels like the movie Oceans 8 should've been.
September 7, 2018
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.
August 9, 2018
Its intent is limited to amusing and diverting for a couple of hours of high-summer fun. That it does.
August 6, 2018
This a film that's difficult to actively dislike - Rudd and his equally charming co-stars take care of that - and fun in the moment, but there's precious little that lingers after the credits roll.
August 2, 2018
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.
August 2, 2018
After 19 Marvel movies so far, and a growing sense of global self-importance (commercially and culturally), a throwaway superhero film is, in fact, just what we need.
August 2, 2018
The two great enemies of picnic now get co-billing in this hilarious, delightful and somehow downright lovable entertainment from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
July 19, 2018
A light and sunny entry in the ongoing Marvel canon that gets by on the cast's easygoing chemistry.
July 18, 2018
A joy to watch on the big screen.
July 10, 2018
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.
July 6, 2018
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.
July 6, 2018
Unlike the unaccountably dull "Ant-Man" feature that came and went three years ago, this one tangles us up cheerfully, almost instantly, in its high-tech bedazzlements and witty beguilements, never loosening its grip.
July 6, 2018
Ant-Man and the Wasp is an eager puppy of a $100 million superhero tentpole, and it knows precisely where on your face to lick you.
July 6, 2018
Would be okay and maybe even fun were it not for the frequent presence of a gruesome ghost haunting the proceedings: a woman in constant physical and emotional agony who is trying desperately not to die. A weirdly disturbing fly in the amiable ointment.
July 6, 2018
This "Ant-Man" entry stakes out its own corner of the Marvel Universe sandbox as a throwback to '80s-style childlike adventure.
July 6, 2018
Aside from a few flourishes of aesthetic inventiveness and a single moment of genuine wonder, "Ant-Man and The Wasp" doesn't do very much with its premise.
July 6, 2018
In a cinematic world crowded with comic-book flicks, "Ant-Man and the Wasp" stands out. And that's no small accomplishment.
July 5, 2018
Even when things get ultra-corny, Ant-Man and the Wasp keeps merrily buzzing along.
July 5, 2018
[Ant-Man] gets by on his propensity for knockabout humour, his child-like enthusiasms and the company he keeps. He's likeable, his films are kid-friendly, and that's about it.
July 5, 2018
Thankfully, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man is as engaging as ever. He almost single-handedly saves this sequel, which is genial enough but not nearly as much fun as the original.
