Elevator Pitch A scientist who has developed miniaturisation technology in the form of a special suit, tricks a skilled burglar into joining him and his daughter in his fight to prevent the man who has taken over his company from developing and selling an alternative suit which he thinks will destroy the world.
Content A lengthy period of exposition as the burglar is selected, and then quite a bit of Ant Man boot camp, and the development of the alternative suit in the evil genius’s facility. Some time spent with ants as Ant Man develops his control over them and finally the climax in the research facility where the two miniaturised people fight it out.
A View Ant Man I have found out is part of the MCU, the Marvel Comics Universe, and so the Avengers got a mention and Ant Man fights a superhero at one time. Well liked by the critics and made lots of money: $57,000,000 on its opening weekend for instance. A watch if you are an MCU fan but a bit tedious if you aren’t.
