Marvel has done it again with “Ant Man: Quantumania.” The newest installation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a fun and entertaining movie that fans are sure to love. With funny characters, fast paced action and beautiful work done by the CGI team, “Quantumania” is in the running for one of the best movies of the year.
While critics claim that the movie was mediocre at best, “Quantumania” has all of the stepping stones for a great movie. The characters all have amazing chemistry, playing off of each other very well and creating scenes that are both hilarious and heartwarming. The acting makes the emotional scenes hit hard with the cinematography and music score makes the audience sympathize with the characters.
Even though there were some plot points that could have been fleshed out more, like Scott and Cassie’s conflict on her going out and being an activist, “Quantumania” perfectly sets up the next movies in the MCU with the reintroduction to Kang the Conqueror and the multiverse along with the buildup for Loki season two.
While at this point it is all too common in the MCU, the usage of CGI is to be expected. However, the CGI and special effects in “Quantumania” were fantastic, creating an alien world that is both fantastical and mysterious. When applied with the cinematography, each shot in the movie is breathtaking to look at. While some movies in the MCU could do without, “Quantumania” does a good job with using the special effects.
Overall, while the movie isn’t perfect, it is still an entertaining watch for Marvel fans, or even those not familiar with the MCU. Great characters, story and fight choreography create an experience that should leave the audience satisfied.
