The wait is over: Marvel Studios’ ANT-MAN AND THE WASP (PG-13) is now playing in theaters everywhere! My family had a great time, and enjoyed this movie as much as the first ANT-MAN. Ant-Man is one of the more light-hearted heroes in the Avengers crew and brings hilarious comic relief to most scenes. This PG-13 action-packed joyride was exactly what my 8th grade daughter hopes for in a movie.
The high-quality special effects and attention-to-detail bring the ANT-MAN comic book character and his adventures to life on the big screen. We also appreciate the female roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Wasp is the perfect collaborative match to Ant-Man’s wit and intellect. Marvel women are wonderful role-models, with backgrounds in science, martial arts and more.
Get a taste of the movie in this “Powers” featurette with both Paul Rudd (“Ant-Man”) and Evangeline Lilly (“The Wasp”) talking about the film:
What is the movie about?
ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is a new chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that features heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink to the size of an ant. In the aftermath of CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, Scott Lang is stuck on house arrest as a result of his choices as both a Super Hero/Ant-Man and a father to his adorable daughter.
As he struggles to return balance to his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, Scott is also confronted by Hope van Dyne (The Wasp/Evangeline Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) with an urgent new mission.
Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside the Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from the past.
This superhero movie is thickly peppered with comedic dialogue and smart one-liners, as any Paul Rudd fan would easily recognize. My 13-year old daughter is beginning to understand and appreciate more drama and thicker plot-lines, which is the exact entertainment pocket for this type of movie. Also, in true Marvel movie tradition, STAY TO THE END OF THE CREDITS!!
According to Stella Rating: Family Viewing Disclaimer (1/low – 5/high scale)
My daughter loved ANT-MAN, and we all had high expectations for ANT-MAN AND THE WASP. It is a true PG-13 movie, primarily due to the fighting and language.
1 – SEX/NUDITY – Minor jokes are very subtle. There are a few kisses, and a scene of a bare-chested Paul Rudd.
3 – VIOLENCE/GORE – The PG-13 rating is appropriate for the fight scenes. There is no blood or gore, but several scenes include punching, fighting and intense car chases. Death is implied, as characters are injured.
2 – PROFANITY – Mild obscenity. Closer to PG-rating in this category.
I can’t wait to hear what you think! Feel free to comment with your spoiler-free thoughts.
