A fun, irreverent movie about one of the original avengers (in the comic books at least). The Ant-Man name seemed to have more cachet in the late 60's when I first started reading Marvel comics. Today it is a name ripe for ridicule and the Ant-Man could have ended up a ridiculous movie if it had taken itself too seriously. The movie deals with the name by making it a product of times gone by when Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, was in his prime. The requisite costume and the name are handed down to Scott Lang, who shares the audience's opinion of the name. As the movie progresses, Scott earns respect from the audience for both the character and the name. The movie never takes itself too seriously and injects fun into just about every scene. The thomas the tank engine battle is a hoot. This movie is great for a night of light entertainment with the kids and a bowl of popcorn or even just the bowl of popcorn.
