ADVENTURE

Quantumania Is a Slick, Slightly Empty, Sci-Fi Adventure Film

An evil ruler with a legion of faceless soldiers at their disposal. A band of heroes, traveling across vast new worlds filled with evocative and wild creatures. Transports that look like giant stingrays. Enormous battles across towering technological wonders. A cantina. Yup, that all sounds like Star Wars, but it’s actually Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, a massive sci-fi adventure that takes both Ant-Man, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to brand new places, with both good and bad results.

The good? Characters we know and love, like Scott Lang as Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne as Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) are forced into a fantastic new world filled with untold visual and storytelling wonders, all up against a game-changing new villain named Kang (Jonathan Majors). The bad? That world is so unbelievably monumental and needs so much explaining, it often comes at the expense of meaningful character development leaving the film with a fun, yet flat, feeling.

Look. It’s been 15 years at this point. If you love the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’ll probably like Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania more than you don’t. It’s an entertaining, epic exercise in world-building with huge set pieces and surprises a-plenty. The MCU sprinkled with Star Wars, Dune, and Heavy Metal Magazine. Conversely, if you don’t get goosebumps every time the “Marvel Studios” logo hits the screen, chances are it’s not going to work as well for you. It’s uneven in terms of pacing and character while relying heavily on the audience having a pre-existing connection with this franchise.

Scott Lang, a former criminal who becomes a superhero after inheriting the Ant-Man suit from the first Ant-Man, Hank Pym, was introduced to audiences in the first Ant-Man film, which was released in 2015. Since that time, the comical and endearing protagonist has grown in popularity, and actor Paul Rudd has received acclaim for the role he played in bringing the character to life.

The sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, was released three years later in 2018, and featured the return of Scott Lang as well as the introduction of several new characters. These new characters included Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), who takes on the role of the Wasp, and Janet Pym (Michelle Pfeiffer), who was held captive in the Quantum Realm for many years. The movie was well received by audiences and critics alike, and it left many yearning for more.
