We had the chance to see Ant Man and the Wasp last week and we had such a fun time. For some reason my girls never saw the first Ant Man, but they caught onto the story pretty quickly and really enjoyed it. The theater was full and throughout the film there was a lot (and I mean a lot) of laughter. The comedy was great but I feel like the story line was a little weird.
Overall this show was a great family film, it has more heart to it than most superhero films but it was a bit too long. The kids absolutley loved it, Myron and I would say 3 out of 5 stars. Be sure to stay after BOTH sets of credits.
