Before I get into this, there is something I would like to get off of my chest; that would be the fact that the trailers for Antman do not do the film any justice whatsoever. I mean Antman has crept into my top five Marvel movies of all time. The film itself is a breath of fresh air; it’s innovative in all of the good ways, and I can assure you that you’ve never laid your eyes upon anything quite like it.
What’s more, if you need a few good laughs this is definitely the movie for you to see, I honestly can’t think of an audience this film won’t suit, I even told my grandmother last night that she needs to see it. Director Peyton Reed and his team did a wonderful job creating a movie that not only a Marvel geek like myself; will love but a movie the whole family can enjoy together.
Let’s get into it, shall we?
Here are 3 Reasons Antman Should Lead This Year’s Summer Blockbusters.
1. The film will keep you entertained from start to finish:
A lot of times when I see movies in theaters, I get drowsy because of the cool air and comfortable seating that has lulls me to sleep while watching various titles, this was not the case at all during Antman. I was stunned by the shrinking scenes throughout the film as they were not gimmicky or repetitive in any way; I need to see more and I think you’ll feel the same way.
2. You will leave the theater in tears of laughter:
The best kind of comedy is the comedy that strikes out of nowhere and that’s what Antman offers. Marvel movies as a whole manage to deliver many hysterical moments, but Antman possibly has just as much fun and laughs as Guardians of the Galaxy, which was also a hit in regards to comedy.
3. The cast itself is outstanding:
Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and my boy Michael Pena ( Just to name a few ) kill it. It’s almost as if they weren’t acting at all and they had literally become the roles on the script. Michael Pena steals the show by a landslide, he was hilarious during all of the most convenient times and he is bound to become a fan favorite, he is definitely one of mine.
Golly, this movie is so ridiculously good, the storyline, cast, comedy, action, the list can continue. Don’t get me started about the two after credit scenes, yes, of course, there are after credit scenes, it’s a Marvel film. In the end, I fell in love with how big and detailed the Earth became when we shrunk, heck, I even learned about different species of ants! This movie is for everyone, and anyone can find enjoyment and that has to be my favorite part about the film. Take your kids, girlfriend, wife, grandmother, or even your friends to go see it, it’ll assure a fun night out. Don’t take them all out to see it at the same time!
Until next time, JJ King!
