Ant-Man

Comic Action


 

Recently released from prison, Scott Lang takes part in a safe heist, and stumbles upon an odd looking costume that can shrink its wearer down to size.

A character based on an insect may not be the most appealing of superheroes, but rest assured, Ant-Man's entry into the comic universe is just as endearing as his fellow kin. This film sticks rigidly to the formula, with a cleverly selected cast, cheerful humour and splendid visuals bringing this bug-size world to sumptuous life. It is action on a scale rarely seen, armies of ants crawling through pipes and darting under doors achieves a newfangled manner of fun. This little guy packs a punch.
