The story is quite well-written, and uses the character of Ant-man in many amusing ways. For you who do not know anything about Ant-man, the character foremostly has the ability to shrink himself to the size of an ant. With such an ability, it is possible to create intresting and creatively written scenarios. This creativity is something that is noticeable during the whole movie. The majority of the characters in the movie are well-written and suit their respective roles in the story very well. There were, however, a few that could have used some tweaking.
One of them was the antagonist (played by Corey Stoll), who felt somewhat one-dimensional. The other character who could have used some better writing (played by Michael Peña) is written in such a way that I can easily understand if people of the same etnicity as the charater take offence. Ant-man as a character lead to a lot of laughs in the theatre (although often at his own expense), but it can be discussed wether such a character is suitable for a film that is supposed to be family-friendly. If this had been a movie supposed to be watched by the same audience as Neighbours, The Dictator of The Pineapple Express, the question would be an easy one.
The majority of the actors did very well, with the possible exception of Corey Stoll. That might also be because the character as such is not very well written.
Ant-man is a film I recommend to those who are into superhero moies, no matter what publisher. Furthermore, I recommend this movie to those who would like to see a new twist on classical heist movies (such as Ocean Eleven or Tower Heist). In conclusion, I was very content with this move and will gladly watch it again.
