Ant-Man and the Wasp

{4.5/5} “I eat fear for breakfast.” — Scott’s 10-year-old daughter

Ant-Man and the Wasp, released in 2018

Hope’s mother, Janet, was lost in the quantum realm years ago, but now her father, Hank, thinks he might be able to get her back. Scott was in the quantum realm and made it back, and may have something in his head that can help them find Janet. Scott is under house arrest for another 3 days and can’t associate with them — but they kidnap him anyway.

This movie is hilarious. The trick of making things larger and smaller was used to tremendous effect.

There’s a lot of technobabble — other than that, it’s delightful from start to finish. It even has an antagonist with motivation.

Stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne. Directed by Peyton Reed (Ant-Man). Christophe Beck’s joyous Ant-Man theme pops up at suitable intervals.

The previous movie in the Marvel universe was Avengers: Infinity War.
