Ant-Man 3D Movie Review

After we got turfed out of our hotel, we decided to see the newly released Ant-Man! It also helped this had in seat alcohol service ;-) A weird and brave film for Marvel to release as their summer tent pole, as not a lot of people would have heard of Ant-Man, basically a guy in a suit who can shrink to the size of an ant, with super ant strength and communication skills. He's a thief broken out of prison who is then used to break into Hank Pym's company and steal similar secret technology, as the world is dreaming of armies of micro terrorists apparently. Except of course they don't get there in time to stop them finishing the rival suit and you have various micro-battles popping in and out of full size when strength or speed is needed. The shrinking/strength idea is used very effectively in this film and is a clever idea/effect done very well. I'm not sure the hero himself is quite a likeable as Guardians of the Galaxy or The Avengers though. It also spends a great deal of time setting up the back story, a little too long before it gets to the action. Still a great original super hero film though.
