Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Review

Marvel movies seem to both be gaining and losing popularity. With Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania the Marvel Cinematic Universe has officially reached 31 films. If you ask me, Marvel movies have been facing a steep downward slope with the previous film Thor: Love and Thunder being an absolute slog-fest and a waste of the talents of Christian Bale. Quantumania is a slight step up from past films thanks to the enjoyability of Paul Rudd as the titular Ant-Man and the story finally digging into the character of Kang the Conqueror, played by a standout Jonathan Majors. However, though the characters are enjoyable and the plot shows great signs of what is to come, Quantumania ultimately suffers from harsh pacing issues and some startling cases of CGI blunders. No time is given to the audience to reflect on anything they have viewed with the pacing somehow both running at the absolute speed of light, but also feeling like the film vastly exceeds its two-hour run time. Overall, it seems Quantumania is content to be just another decent entry to an increasingly formulaic film franchise; it ultimately only reaches the heights of the bugs in the film’s namesake.
