Though there may be a few too many storylines occurring, Ant-Man and the Wasp is a fun entry in the Marvel Cinetmatic Universe that focuses the action on a smaller level while providing laughs.

While on house arrest, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) has a dream of Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) in the Quantum Realm. Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and her father Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) team up with Scott in the hopes that they could bring their long-lost family member back into the human world.

Between the FBI, criminal Sonny Burch (Walton Goggins) and the troubled Ava Starr (Hannah John-Kamen), none of these subplots receive the attention they need to be full-fleshed stories. Ava seems to be a fantastically interesting character, but she’s rushed with John-Kamen playing her one-note.

Final say: It’s got some issues. ★★★☆☆
