Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

Kang the Conqueror makes his imperial appearance in – Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania, directed by Peyton Reed.


Featuring a long list of Hollywood superstars such as Jonathan Majors, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, and more.


Since its release on 17th February 2023, Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania has collected over 400 Million US Dollars worldwide, receiving mixed reactions from both Marvel fans and critics alike.


However, is the movie any good? Let’s dive into the quantum realm and find out.


Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne are dragged into the Quantum Realm, along with Hope’s parents and Scott’s daughter Cassie. Together they must find a way to escape, but what secrets is Hope’s mother hiding? And who is the mysterious Kang?


Friendly disclaimer that the following review will contain spoilers from “Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania”, you have warned.


Akin to other Marvel movies out there, there’s always a family-orientated plot surrounding their movies, which can either propel the movie sky high or bring it to a complete halt.


Scott Lang played by Paul Rudd is no different in this scenario, whereas, after the events of Endgame, being reunited with his daughter Cassandra Lang played by Kathryn Newton, feels it imperative to be there for his daughter no matter what.


However, Cassandra has grown up, she’s no longer that little girl that needs protecting from the world, she’s out and about, figuring out what she can do to make the world a better place, whilst watching from the shadows of her father, who’s an Avenger, read books to kids and do talk shows.


A beautiful introduction for what’s to come, focusing on the good times with family, whilst slowly and carefully setting up for the big-time baddie that’s been secretly kept hidden from us, by the one we trust the most.


For a movie that’s called Ant-man and the Wasp, Hope van Dyne played by Evangeline Lilly who is the wasp herself lol, appears very little, it’s her mother, Janet van Dyne that steals the show when it’s revealed that she’s been aware of an entity, and individual within the Quantum realm that is capable of living outside of time and exterminating anyone that comes in his way.


This entity is none other than one of many variants of ‘Kang the Conqueror’ played by Jonathan Majors, who we first met in Loki: season 1.


Unlike the variant in Loki who had lost his reason to continue living as he had already won the multiverse war, the variant living in the Quantum realm had only just begun.
Jonathan Majors delivers a riveting rendition of the Conqueror, exuding elegance, knowledge, power, and wealth beyond our wildest dreams all within the calm, the unfazed demeanor of the one that knows all.


An incredible amount of detail was done with the CGI effects, I would even go so far as to say that – this is probably the best CGI I’ve seen of Marvel Studios, depicting the Quantum realm in great depth showcasing, its many beautiful worlds, and all its intriguing creatures.


Nothing is perfect as there are a few wide shots that seem off, for example in the restaurant where we meet Lord Krylar played by Bill Murray. You would somewhat see that the characters were standing in front of a green screen, aside from that I had no complaints, viewing aside.


I won’t even address Modok, anything I say about him would be considered exaggeration and trolling so I digress.


Now onto the only cons, I have about this movie.


Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania goes out of its way to introduce the main antagonist of Phase 5 of the MCU Universe that will require the assistance of the entire universe to bring down, yet, its buildup, tension, and suspense are hindered by one character.


Cassandra Lang.
Her character is disappointing and lackluster. She’s the only character in this film that feels like dead weight and doesn’t seem to grasp the hopeless situation they’re in, nor who they’re dealing with.


Kang is threatening to kill everyone you love and the friends you just made and yet, you’re here, smiling as if it’s your first father-and-daughter road trip in the Quantum Realm.


All in all, Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania offers those out with their loved ones, family, and friends a moment of good laughs, it’s a family-oriented movie that can be watched with the kids whilst menacingly keeping us enthralled by Kang the Conqueror and the endless possibilities it will take to defeat him.


I give Ant-man and the Wasp: Quatumania 4 out of 5 ratings.


Let me know in the comments section below what your thoughts on the movie are. Did you enjoy it or not?

Peyton Reed

He says to Scott, “You're an Avenger? Have I killed you before?” It's like, “Wait, holy shit, you've battled the Avengers before? Were they variants of Avengers, and you've done it so many times, you can't quite remember?” That's scary. That's a whole new flavor for an antagonist in one of these movies.
