4 ENTERTAINMENT JULY 11-17, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER LIVING EDITION Enjoy the ride with 'Antman and the Wasp' ★★★ 1/2 This has without a doubt been Marvel Studios' year at the box office. "Black Panther," which was released in February and then fol- lowed up by "Avengers: Infinity War" in April, have amassed com- bined worldwide cumulative earn- ings of $3.4 billion. Parent corpora- tion Disney is no doubt pleased, as are shareholders, but more impor- tantly, both films were outstanding crowd-pleasers. Now on the heels of the gut punch that "Infinity War" was, comes "Ant Man and the Wasp." This sequel follows both the original "Ant-Man" with Paul Rudd but chronologically, in the Marvel Universe, is more of a sequel to "Captain America: Civil War." I know it gets confusing with these films sometimes, but it is worth it. This film finds Rudd's Scott Lang facing the ramifications from his involvement in "Civil War" and so he is finishing up a very long stint under house arrest with the govern- ment. His former teammate Hope (Evangeline Lilly) is on the run with her father Hank (Michael Douglas) though they think they've found a way to rescue Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer) from the Quantum Realm thanks to a dream Scott had. But there's also a new adversary for them to deal with, Ghost (Hannah John- Kamen). She has a bone to pick with Hank and, of course, Hope and Scott have to work together to stop her. In a crowded summer at the cinema, "Ant Man and the Wasp" brings a certain brevity and light- heartedness to all the high stakes hero and dino fare. The relationship Scott has with his daughter, Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson), is touching and there might be a few teases to her future dropped. Rudd's Scott is a great Ant Man and his humor, quips and observations have that every- man feel. Lilly's Wasp gets far more opportunity and time to shine here than the previous one, and she is the adult to Rudd's oft-child-like Ant Man. Michael Pena is back as Scott's ex-con cellmate Luis. Randall Park is added as a hilarious DHS agent, and Walton Goggins shows up as a nefarious mobster dealing in illicit technology. "Ant Man and the Wasp" doesn't come off as funny as its predecessor, but the laughs are still there. Like the first film, a lot of the best gags are when Rudd's Ant Man is having problems with his suit and can't control the sizes. There's an amusing sequence in his daughter's elementary school but the best action piece is one involving the heroic duo fending off bad guys along the streets and hills of San Francisco. It's also one of the refreshing aspects of this film that helps sets it apart from it's big brother "Avenger" films which often take place in New York City or other far off locales. Ant Man and his gang definitely have their own vibe going on and while they clearly reference those other superheroes, Lily's Wasp takes more than a few cheap shots at Scott for his other acquaintances. "Antman and the Wasp" is a fun and engrossing film that keeps you enthralled throughout. It's a slick, fast and wild ride with miniatur- ized heroes and some big ones too. Director Peyton Reed who helmed the first one returns for this one as well. The film is rated PG13.
