From A Disappointed Marvel Fan: Ant-Man Tanked


Marvel just released one of their most disappointing movies of all time, “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania.” 

According to Rotten Tomatoes, it was one of Marvel’s worst rated movies, and personally, I thought that it was extremely boring and confusing. 

The movie lacked the special charm of the first Ant-Man movie. The sequel wasn’t funny at all, whereas I was laughing the entire time throughout the first film. 

What made the first Ant-Man special was Luis’ hilarious commentary. 

Unfortunately, in the latest movie Luis made no appearance and was not even mentioned a single time. 

Luis was the best character in the first Ant-Man movie, and his absence from the continuation of the story is a huge reason why this movie wasn’t on par with the other Ant-Man movies. 

On top of the best character having zero screen time, the film was also quite boring. It never really felt like anything was being accomplished and the story wasn’t developing.  

The ending was abrupt and unfulfilling, it seemed like all of a sudden there was a big final battle and then the movie was over. 

The first thing I felt about the movie when I left the theater was how uneventful it was. It felt like a waste of my time; nothing really happened for the whole two hours. The introduction of the Quantum realm in the movie also made it very confusing. The complex storyline was not portrayed in a way that was easy to understand.  

Furthermore, the addition of the Quantum realm into the storyline seemed to lack purpose. It felt like they were just introducing the audience to the Quantum realm instead of actually developing the backstory. I feel like the script writers took advantage of the Quantum realm being a new place by just adding new things to bail out the heroes. 

Marvel has had multiple movies lately that have felt just like “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” and they need to fix it soon before they start to lose fans.
