Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
All theaters should be required to have medical personnel available to treat customers who are bored to death!
Before saying a few words about this dreary film, let me register a strong criticism of AMC Theaters. It is offensive beyond words that each film is delayed 30 minutes so they can drown previews with a large group of commercials. AMC remains my last option to see a film for that reason.
On top of that, despite being a fan of the first one, this Ant-Man film was largely a waste of time despite being filled with great actors like Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer. On the upside, their acting skill keeps the tedious plot from completely falling apart.
Fortunately, the film has a great villain played by Jonathan Majors. Coming off a memorable role in this year’s Devotion, he plays Kang the Conqueror, trying to rule the underworld Quantumania.
It matters not how our heroes ended up there. Ms. Lilly’s Wasp plays second fiddle to her parents Janet (Ms. Pfeiffer) and Hank (Mr. Douglas) as they try to help Rudd’s Ant-Man eliminate Kang.
The movie is dominated by repetitive special effects whose only value is that it helps you ignore Bill Murray’s idiotic performance as Lord Krylar.
Let me describe this film in two words “Dull, Baby”! Then again, find a 12-year-old to take with you. They will like it!
