ANT-MAN

Directed by Peyton Reed

Ant-Man, the film that could’ve been. The departure of Edgar Wright as director casts a massive shadow over Ant-Man, as the film functions like a chicken with it’s head chopped off. Riddled with holes in logic and story, it feels like the film plays out without any sort of real momentum, rather forcing the reluctant superhero story whilst stuffing in obligatory expositional dialogue to cover up its own tracks. It often became painful to watch the amazing cast deliver the lines fed to them: they deserve so much better. All fat with no skeleton, Ant-Man will unfortunately be remembered as that film that no one can really remember.
