There is a difference between compelling characters and compelling/cinematic action sequences. Outside of Ant Man I have a hard time recalling specifics of many battles in the Marvel movies. They make sense in the context of the film and few are offensively bad, but none are memorable or evolutionary.

I would tend to agree with this, yeah.

also agreed

I enjoyed that this movie didn’t have a “big bad guy” that the heroes had to defeat. Everyone had their own motivations that weren’t necessarily evil, besides Goggins, but he was more of a thorn than a typical big bad guy.

I also like the trend of these smaller marvel movies basically taking on a genre like the rescue mission in this one, the ensemble heist of the first one, or the sci-fi epic of Ragnarok.

Easily one of the best MCU movies, possibly the most fun. Great acting throughout, the main story was one of the weaker parts, but the action, the humour, the direction/moviemaking/details, the chemistry, all was superb.

I did it! I saw the movie!

Like everyone else said. Nice quaint little movie. The kiddies will like it.

Was Ghost super strong or something? Every time she punched someone they were out.

I liked the Asian fbi guy.

I've already forgotten everything else about it.

I dug it
Thoughts:

- Janet totally gave away how Thanos will be defeated. Hello Quantum Realm/ Microverse time tunnels
- Janet has become Captain Universe/ one with the Enigma Force
- the Hot Wheels box was WAAAAAAY cool
- kinda disappointed with how Bill Foster was portrayed.
Spoiler: show
at least he wasn't total evil bad guy. Really disappointed he wasn't Black Goliath in this

- Egghead and Centurion appear.
- the reference called out in Iron Man 2 was cool.

Overall, a very fun film. After what happened in IW, it was nice to have something that wasn't quite as Earth shattering while still being tied into the overall happenings in the MCU. I really hope they get to make a third because I want more Paul Rudd. I can't wait to see him (and hopefully Wasp) with Thor, Iron Man and Hulk. The actual original ( yes, I realize Lang and Hope aren't the original ones wearing the costumes...) Avengers just HAVE to be in a scene by themselves.

Joe, as a Rudd fan, you really need to see these two movies. You won't be disappointed.

Ant-Man is a really good movie. One of the best Marvel movies.

He’s goodhearted though. I’m sure he will take it well.

I figured you hadn’t yet. I made reference to it in my above post.

No, you really don’t HAVE to watch the first one to see this one, but you’d probably understand a few things better. Pretty much everything is referenced in this one but it’s fleshed out better in the actual movie.

And Joe, you need to see them. Rudd is spectacular in them. Lilly is even better in this one, too.

I am absolutely head over heels in love with Evangeline Lilly. Paul Rudd is okay. I guess.

I was under the impression you were a big fan of his. My mistake.
