⭐⭐⭐⭐ averaged across 1 films.

tl;dr: They still suffer from a slightly unbalanced tonal identity, but given the charms of Evangeline Lily and Paul Rudd happily blow past that to make the bug-heroes a fun outing.

Spoilers Ahead: My reviews are not spoiler-free. You have been warned.

Marvel movies work best when dabbling in different genres. Guardians went space opera; Iron Man embraced the war genre; Winter Solider played spy. Now, we have Marvel's heist movie: Antman! Wait, Antman?

Yep, Scott Lang is the new Danny Ocean, albeit less suave, more self-aware and with a crap ton of ants. Adorable, awesome ants.

Formicidae aside, Antman (film) manages to make Antman (hero) cool, funny and interesting. Hank Pym et al. remain, but with a new and intriguing path. Heck, Antman will probably be the best Marvel film of 2015!

P.S. Crazy ants are awesome, but living circuit-boards? Nope.
