This was another movie I was really looking forward to watching. I didn’t quite get to it on opening weekend, but it was close enough.
I definitely wouldn’t say this was a movie that could stand on its own, given its links to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I really liked seeing some of Scott and Cassie’s relationship, along with Scott’s interactions with his ex-wife and her new husband.
I really did like seeing the fallout from Civil War and it was pretty awesome to see the lengths Scott went to so he could do things with his daughter; and how he dragged Luis into it.
It was really good to see some of the nods to the comics, such as in regards to Goliath/Giant-Man. I also really liked that Ghost had a lot of of depth, even though, as a villain, she was rather weak.
While this movie didn’t have quite as much humour as the first one, there were some really good laugh out loud moments in this. And I really liked being able to see more of Hope’s relationship with her parents. It was nice to see glimpses of Janet interacting with both her husband and her daughter.
I also really liked the fact there was a lot of focus on Hope as a main character. It was really good to see that she was able to hold her own against Ghost and I loved seeing her and Scott fighting alongside each other.
I really liked the use of the technology, though I felt that the growing/shrinking was used to quite an extreme. I didn’t really understand the quantum realm and how everything worked with that, but I did think that, visually, it was absolutely fascinating.
There were a couple of extra scenes at the end of the credits, one of which tied very neatly into Infinity War.
All in all, this movie was a lot of fun to watch and I’d enjoy watching it a second time. It might not have been such a serious addition to the MCU, but it was definitely worth watching as part of the world; at least in my opinion.
