REAL HEROES. NOT ACTUAL SIZE.
After the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is under house arrest; soon, he becomes involved in an attempt to find Hope’s (Evangeline Lilly) mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) who’s been trapped in the quantum realm for 30 years. A sequel that almost matches the original, as it continues to explore everyday dangers for Marvel’s smallest superhero. Terrific visual effects in 3D (especially during a San Francisco chase) and the movie remains true to its humorous and appealingly family-friendly tone. Thin story, but the cast and sheer sense of fun make up for it.
