Ant-Man started development way back in 2006 when "Promiscuous" by Nelly Furtado was topping the charts and the Marvel Cinematic Universe(MCU) was just starting to grow.  Since then it went through several rewrites directors and cast. The movie in theaters today still has the charm that Edgar Wright brought those 9 years ago.

The film follows a cast of insects: there are 2 Ant-Man(s),Wasp, Yellow-Jacket and literal ants. Also it stars some great talent; Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas plus a lot of great character actors. The story is that Scott Lang(Paul Rudd) a former burglar is out  to win back his daughter and must do a heist with help of Hank Pym to stop the secrets of the shrinking technology (Pym Particle) getting out and being weaponized.

I never thought we would see an Ant-Man movie, not after all the drama behind the making of the film and I never thought I would see a movie that includes such a full history of the characters. Paul Rudd nails the sarcasm of Scott Lang and he really is the burglar you can root for. The film isn't packed with over the top action, instead it has some great visual effects for the shrinking fight scenes but also one of the best paced MCU movies.  There are great cameos and nods to other Marvel properties more importantly it's fun.
