Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – Spoiler Free Review


Danny Lanza, Editor

As of late, Marvel projects have been extremely decisive when it comes to their reviews. This trend is not slowing down with “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. Many say that the film is a CGI mess of a movie, while others believe that the visuals were absolutely gorgeous. The film has had one of the most split community reviews about it, and this is why.

The movie begins with Scott Lang, living happily ever after in LA. He is riding on the back of his superhero career, and is now writing books about his time in the Avengers. This eventually turns bad for him. His daughter Cassie, who is now 18 years old, is back with Scott. She is riding with Climate Activists, and actually got arrested at a protest.

After Scott gets Cassie out of jail, we learn that she has been working with Hank Pym to contact the Quantum Realm. Scott is immediately very proud and impressed by his daughter, while Janet is terrified. She immediately tells Cassie to stop, but it is too late. Her Quantum Realm device fails, and everyone in the room is sucked into the Quantum Realm.

Once in the Quantum Realm, Janet immediately knows what to do. Scott and Cassie are separated from Hope, Janet, and Hank. Janet meets with Lord Krylar (Bill Murray) and tries to convince him to tell her what has been happening since she was saved from the Quantum Realm. He tells her about Kang the Conqueror, and how he is the one who controls the realm. No one can get past him.

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania has been one of the most fandom-dividing movies in MCU history. The movie itself has been criticized for its unfinished plot, horrible CGI, and just plain bad script. The movie has a 47% on Rotten Tomatoes. This makes it the worst-rated MCU movie of all time, tied with Eternals, which is a famously bad MCU project. It has grossed $463.4 million dollars at the time of writing. This makes it a complete box office bomb for Marvel, who have been struggling with box office returns recently.

The movie itself has also been praised for its amazing CGI according to another half of the fandom. This debate is not settled, and has been raging for over a month now. One thing the fandom can agree on, however, is Kang. Kang (Jonathan Majors) has been praised for being an amazing villain, and Majors has been praised for his acting. There is only one true way to have an opinion on a film, and that is to see it yourself. I would recommend this film, as I did enjoy it. However, many say that this could be the beginning of the end for the MCU. Sadly, we need to see if this comes true, as the current rating trend of MCU movies predicts the death of a studio.
