I'm surprised to see how negative people are towards this movie here. I think it was great fun. A lot of clever uses of shrinking and growing, a lot of cool visuals and a lot of great jokes. It all worked for me.

It's not a bad movie. Or a good movie. It's just okay.

At no point did I feel like I wanted to be somewhere else and I doubt I'll remember it much a couple of years for now.

It passed the afternoon okay.

Ant-Man and the Wasp isn't just about Hope Van Dyne as the Wasp, but about Janet, the original Wasp as well. That's perhaps what I like most about the Ant-Man franchise - not the comedy, which other Marvel properties do as well or better, but the sense that this universe has a history the reaches back before Iron Man I that isn't just about Captain America. Hope is pretty great in this and the real badass hero to Scott Lang's comic relief, while Hank Pym gets more to do as well. While the first film had an underwhelming villain, the sequel instead goes for a variety of threats, which ties into the "everything goes wrong", overcomplicated vibe heist movies have. Works better that way, though it does mean the plot becomes a continuous chase for one MacGuffin or another. There are a lot of fun moments - though way too many of them were spoiled by the trailer, surely only a problem with the first viewing - but I feel like the movie only really kicks off when Luis gets interrogated. Until then, I was like, okay, enough with the technobabble.

Great fun and much better comedic acting than in most other Marvel films.

Not bad, but boy does it drag. I watch Infinity War and feel like it's short, I watch this, which is 30 minutes shorter, and I get bored before the halfway point. The story is just not that interesting, as I don't care about Hope's mother.

Totally silly but very entertaining fun sequel. Enjoyed it much more than other MCU movies. Forgetable but fun.

I enjoyed this movie, but not as much as the first Ant-Man. Everything about the movie is enjoyable, so I'd recommend it to anyone. It's just not terribly memorable.

I found it really funny, it's well-paced and it ties into the rest of the marvel universe perfectly. The acting could have been a bit better, but they may have rushed things a bit. Don't let either right-wing (wah, wah, not enough ant-man, too much wasp) or left-wing (wah, wah, not enough wasp, too much ant-man) politicized critiques stop you from watching it.

Ant Man and the Wasp is a walking example of why Marvel's films are not "good" films. Perhaps they're not meant to be. That's fine, but this film was shocking display of lazy, cliched writing. If you're okay with that, that's fine. I hope you enjoyed the film. I did not enjoy the film.

Firstly, the film telegraphs (not just foreshadows) much of its plot. The villain is contrived on misunderstanding and backstory we're not privy to. The characters chasing the mcguffin are all as thin as an eggshell. I lost count after 10 times when someone would say "Get the (mcguffin)" or "We need the (mcguffin)" or "I'm going after the (mcguffin)".

Furthermore, I lost count how many times characters commented on how the film's plot stopped progressing so that characters could make non-sequitur jokes. The jokes are entirely irrelevant to the plot and add nothing but comic relief - mentioning the comic relief is neither meta-humour nor actually funny. It's actually rather annoying.

The film has no message, no real chemistry between the actors, and is frankly an incomplete package given that we needed to have watched at least two other films starring Ant Man in order to understand what the backstory here was (excepting the telegraphed opening which told us how the film would go in the first 5 minutes).

Though, to be fair, I have to yield to the metric that the late-great Roger Ebert used to use: Is this film better than a film of the same actors eating lunch? It's close, but I will say - yes, probably. Is this film something that people in its target audience would enjoy (I am not its target audience)? Yes, most probably.

To that end it succeeds, but if you're not into Marvel's films, you're not going to be into this one either.

About the same level as the first one. No real villain, mostly Paul just being Paul, which is alright.

Decent villain would have made this a solid movie.

I am a huge Marvel fan and comic book movies fan in general thought this movie lacked a soul. Maybe in a world devoid of comic movies it would have been better, but this is a very very lazy movie. Lazy plot, lazy jokes, very little action scenes. The most important thing in the movie was the mid-credits scene.

There's a line where someone says something like "it feels like you guys just throw 'Quantum' in front of every word" and it truly feels like the writers really just did that and called it a day.

I still don't understand spoiler

I am a big fan of the first Ant-Man movie. I love Paul Rudd, and I think a lot of great things came out of his first time as a Marvel Superhero. So I had been looking forward to the follow-up, hoping for another good time at the movies. But what a disappointment. This was just dropped on the floor, it's like they didn't even try.

This film is just not good. I absolutely disagree with frankqb though, that Marvel's films are not "good" films. They definitely can be, and we've seen great examples of this. Iron Man, The Winter Soldier, some of these films pack a strong punch.

But Ant-Man & The Wasp was just bad. And what's with the title? They barely did anything together. Would've been better titled Ant-Man: Quantum.
