Conclusion: 3/5
The latest film from the Marvel franchise. There were times in this where it did lose its place a bit and didn’t know what to do. Was originally going to be directed by Edgar Wright who I think would have made a better job directing this film. I found it all to be very predictable. Wasn’t sure whether this was meant to be a comedy as it started out being quite funny and then lost its momentum in the middle. Paul Rudd has stated that he purchased a massive ant farm and watched how the ants worked together. Jessica Chastain was offered the role of the lead female but turned it down. The best thing about this film was the Visual Effects!! One film critic wrote about this film “Not so f-ant-astic, then just a little ant-iclimatic.”
