Ant-Man is an entertaining super hero style movie. We can’t fault it. The plot is engaging, the cast works well together, the action sequences are well done and exciting to watch. We also really liked the unique difference with Ant-Man versus the multitude of other super hero movie characters out there – namely that he can shrink down to ant size as and when he wants to, using it to good effect to confuse baddies while giving them a belt across the chops!
If we were looking to be hyper critical about the Ant-Man movie, it is a familiar format, because there are only so many ways to produce a super hero story, but nevertheless based on our viewing of the film, it ticks all the right boxes. Don’t expect highly complicated plot construction, but you can expect an entertaining cinematic experience.
We can see a generation of little boys being obsessed with playing with ants based on this film! The supporting cast includes an ant army which should have grubby little boys all around the world getting even grubbier in the search for ants!
WHO’S IT FOR: The film is rated at 12A in the UK. The film does feature multiple use of a slang/swear word for excrement (the word begins with S & ends with T), so parents may not be so sure about letting their kids watch it, but apart from that probably unneccesary profanity the film would otherwise be totally suitable for a family audience.
THE TOY VERDICT: We liked Ant-Man, it is a well made and entertaining film…would we say it’s the best super hero movie we have ever seen…probably not, but nevertheless it is more than good enough!
