This film reminded me a lot of the first time I came across Scott Lang in Iron Man #151. In the books, he was always a funny but dynamic hero, who stepped into his suit with an enjoyable mix of guts, luck and skill. What I appreciated about this movie is that it didn't pretend to be an epic like Ragnarok or Infinity War. It has all the charm of the one-issue Marvel books I was raised on. It tells a complete story, and you get the entertainment you paid for, without the emotional or narrative hangover of the "big" Marvel films. Paul Rudd nails the character as always, without overplaying either the comedy or complications of Lang's situation. Michael Douglas turns in his usual note-perfect performance. Evangeline Lilly makes the most of her expanded role, and shines much more than in the first film. Michael Peña remains the hardest working man in movies today, and steals every scene he's given.
