In just a few days left in the release of the Ant-Man and the Wasp, the official reviews are finally out and it seems that it will be the next film in their big hit movies list. All of the review out up till now only have good news for the fans, the film has a charm of its own and while some said that it does not have many consequences in other films and also wasn’t that important as it was considered being next in line after Infinity War, but still they gave the film a big thumbs up.
We collected some of the reviews for you:
Brandon Davis from ComicBook only had great things to say about the film in his review.
“In a world where bigger is often thought to mean better, especially in terms of sequels, Ant-Man and The Wasp comes along to prove it is not the case. A sequel to 2015’s Ant-Man, which was a heist flick burdened with introducing a hero many audiences were unfamiliar with, the latest entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a self-contained joy ride written to include great humor and surprising twists.”

Variety’s review was also a thumbs up. Owen Gleiberman also had a lot of good things to say about the movie.
“Ant-Man and the Wasp is a full two hours, yet even when it’s pulling out all the stops, the movie never gives you that sinking sensation you can get when a comic-book film’s extended climax kicks in, and you feel the visual-effects army taking over the movie. That’s because Peyton Reed invests every moment with personality. That’s not quite the same thing as humanity. But it’s enough to qualify as the miniature version.”

While everyone praised the movie, Indiewire said that while the movie was a good entertainer but it didn’t live up to the expectations the Infinity War had set for it.
“Ant-Man and the Wasp provides a blithe, forgettable antidote to the sprawling apocalyptic circumstances of Avengers: Infinity War just a few months earlier. It’s everything you might expect from a witty story about a shrinking superhero and gobbledygook involving the quantum realm, and it’s as ebullient and disposable as the last one.”

EW also had the same views as IndieWire, EW said that the movie is ‘forgettable’ after the Infinity War and gave it a disappointing C+.
“After I saw Ant-Man and the Wasp, I tried to remember if I saw Ant-Man and the Wasp. This is one of those Marvel products peddling self-aware detachment as a defining narrative strategy. Scientists will say science stuff — ‘quantum realm,’ ‘quantum entanglement,’ ‘quantum tunnel’ — and then Scott/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) will deadpan that everyone says “quantum” too much. Characters joke so much about Captain America: Civil War that you start to wonder if you paid movie-ticket prices to read the internet two years ago. It feels less like a feature film than a meme somebody made about an Ant-Man trailer.”

Rolling Stones gave the film 3 out of 4 and said that the Paul and Evangeline made the film a wonderful sequel to watch.
“Sometimes better-than-good things do come in small packages. The proof can be found in Ant-Man and the Wasp, a fizzy treat of a sequel that retains the becoming modesty of the original, but with a timely new twist. The Wasp, played by the radiant Evangeline Lilly, becomes the first female character ever to appear in the title of a Marvel movie.”

- The Hollywood Reporter
THR’s review was a bit of a balanced one, while they said that the film was a good entertainer but they pointed out that it was overshadowed by Infinity War.
“It’s hard to say which is the most lightweight, evanescent and inconsequential of the bunch — Ant-Man, the Wasp or Ant-Man and the Wasp. But while pondering this conundrum for two hours, it becomes increasingly difficult not to notice that this latest entry in the unstoppable Marvel Studios takeover of the world is probably the most amusing film the company has made since the Kevin Feige reign began a decade ago. With a domestic haul of “only” $180 million in 2015, the original Ant-Man stands as the company’s second-lowest grosser during that period, so Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War will not feel threatened. But young summer audiences will nonetheless delight in the goofy, low-stakes nonsense the most engaging characters generate.”

IGN also had similar views on the Ant-Man sequel as THR.
“Ant-Man and The Wasp doesn’t have as much style as James Gunn’s Guardians movies or Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok, but returning director Peyton Reed has honed in on everything that made the first Ant-Man so charming and doubled down on it, from the offbeat humor to the zippy energy radiating from every scene. It’s a smidge longer than its predecessor, but somehow feels tighter and more confident in its execution — a rare feat for a sequel.”
