Ant-Man and the Wasp (12A)

Science Fiction, Fantasy, Action

US sci-fi action adventure in which the two superheroes take on a new foe who is determined to steal their technology.

The critical consensus

While it proves an all-round well-mounted distraction, Ant-Man And The Wasp undeniably lacks the scale and ambition of recent Marvel entries.

With inventive action and a gag-rate that bests most comedies, Ant-Man and the Wasp is the kind of slick entertainment you’ve come to expect from the MCU, with Rudd and Lilly’s winning double act at the centre.

Fun but forgettable – and not enough Michelle Pfeiffer.

***(*)(*)Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 29/07/2018

For all its flaws, Ant-Man and the Wasp never loses sight of the fun. The humour and unflappable comedic timing of its cast remains the franchise’s strength, and entertaining action sequences manage to uplift an ultimately heavy-handed sequel.

Want a tightly packed bundle of fast dialogue, heady danger and speculation as to which stars are coming back for a third film? Ant-Man and the Wasp is that ticket.

****(*)Karen Krizanovich, The List, 30/07/2018

This little mite is proving just as durable as Captain America, Iron-Man or any of the other, more sizeable superheroes in the Marvel stable. There is no sign anybody will be squashing him just yet.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 01/08/2018

Insect-sized Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly team up for a superhero sequel that’s funny, engaging and downright lovable.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 02/08/2018

Such unobtrusive self-awareness is in keeping with the style of returning director Payton Reed, who likes making light of all the pseudo-science chat in the script.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 02/08/2018

While there are good aspects to the film and it doesn’t take itself too seriously, it still follows a formula. It falls under the subtitle of ‘it’s good… For a Marvel film’.
