Saw Ant-Man yesterday and… I’m disappointed. I thought it was paced well, and Rudd, Pfeiffer and Majors were all great. I was expecting Cassie to be dreadful based on posts in this thread, but she was fine.
And yet. It was so unnecessarily goofy. I think it was objectively a better film than Love and Thunder, but I was expecting that to be a goofy comedy. This didn’t need to be, and it suffered for it.
The ‘Darren?!’ joke was done three times.
There was a surprise saviour by reinforcements three times.
Kang was overpowered by… a bunch of ants.
I said “I have holes!” under my breath before the character did, and then rolled my eyes.
“What’s the code?”
“I’d rather die”
(UGH. A truly cursed script.)
And while I didn’t think the CGI was bad at all, the art design was so derivative, and the quantum realm just didn’t make any sense to me. Why would there be a broccoli man at the subatomic level? Why was it all basically Tattooine with a painted skybox?
