The Avengers is another thing, I was a bit irritated to find out several moons ago when the film hoarded most of the cinemas in the metro without giving non-superhero fans like me an option. This made me wonder if I’m part of an extinct species.
When I first got a glimpse of the poster of Ant-Man (which I wrote in a previous article), it was my son who pointed out that he wanted to watch the movie, Squinting my eyes to check the poster with a tiny object in the middle stirred my curiosity.
According to Marvel, Ant-Man is one of the founding member of The Avengers armed with an astonishing ability to shrink in scale but retain its weight and strength.
Watching the movie gave me a sense of viewing from a cinema and reading it thru a comic book.
I didn't notice the chyron that stated 20 years earlier in the initial scene and was surprised to see a much younger looking Michael Douglas that I instantly asked if he recently had a botox procedure. Michael Douglas (Dr. Pym) founded Pym Technologies and the person responsible for developing the shrinking technology.
Dr. Pym was forced to hide it from his partners to prevent them from using it mainly for the purpose of making money and in return causing chaos to mankind.
Movie-goers will be fully engage in every scene and this is the type of movie that you can watch even if you hadn't sleep the previous night.
Noticeably, the movie did not even dwell on a love angle or even suggested one until the very end.
Oh, did I also mention I hate ants, but seeing them all throughout the movie was tolerable.
This early, I can already tell that we’ll all be waiting for part 2 of Ant-Man.
I wouldn’t go through with the spoilers and encourage y’all to watch this movie, it’s worth every penny you’ll spend. Ant-Man started showing in cinemas July 15, 2015.
