    Ant-man and The Wasp (2018, Peyton Reed)

    The first Ant-man was a nice, funny smaller film in the MCU film series and this is pretty much the same. I think if you liked the first one you will enjoy this one and is a nice light comedy entry right after the gloomy ending of Avengers: Infinity War.

    The narrative is not quite as focused as the first but that is not surprising with this one having a lot more characters including a second main title character (The Wasp). The Wasp kind of steals the show as far as the action scenes and as far as the thrust of the story.

    There is a few things that are a bit easy to predict including a certain casting choice combined with the de-aging technology that will give away a plot point pretty early on. Also it is strange to see the Scott Lang/Ant-man character being much more of a bumbler in this one after he proved his metal in his earlier outings.

    So in the end it is a fun, 'somewhat' inconsequential film that has some fun action and some good laughs. However this is combined with some plot holes as well as lazy or messy story telling that the films good nature will overcome for most viewers but makes it just not quite as good as the first film.
