Scott Lang, better known as Ant-Man, is back! But unfortunately he is grounded for his meddling during his time with the Avengers, so he has to stay in his house. Scott makes the best of his situation and turns his whole place into an amazing playground for his daughter who is allowed to visit him on a regular basis.

However, things start to change when Scott has a vision about Hope’s Mom Janet. He is able to reach Hope and her father Hank although he doesn’t think much of it. Hank and Hope on the other hand believe that Janet is still alive and want to retrieve her from the sub-atomic realm. They kidnap the unwilling Scott from his house arrest so he can help them get a device to build a machine to make the sub-atomic realm easily accessible.

When things start to get rough, due to an enemy who can walk through walls, Hope turns into the Wasp to fight side by side with Ant-Man.

Get ready for fast adventures, old friends, jokes and suspensions in all dimensions.

The essence of “Ant-Man” is inherently silly, and that’s where the strength of the new movie lies. (IndieWire)

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” has a pleasingly breakneck, now-you-see-it-now-you-don’t surreal glee. It’s a cunningly swift and delightful comedy of scale. (Variety)

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” is merry and fleet, and no less enjoyable for being instantly forgettable. The buzz might be temporary, but it’s fun while it lasts. (Washington Post)
