Ant-Man and The Wasp: A-

As far as sequels go, so far this summer "The Incredibles 2" seemed to get it just right ahead of "Deadpool 2" and "Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom" — both fun, but not stellar. Then along came "Ant-Man and The Wasp." In the Marvel universe, there are a plethora of heroes vying for favorite status, and there is something more approachable and likable about Paul Rudd and this film. Simply, he's an everyman. He's THAT guy that everyone would love to have as a co-worker or buddy, and in this role, as a divorced dad on house arrest, audiences will again feel an affection for this ex-con. His Robin Hood vibes, coupled with the other ex-cons and business partners (Michael Peña, T.I. Harris, and David Dastmalchian), provide constant comic relief throughout. Homage must be given to "The Wasp" (Evangeline Lilly). She can fight and hold her own, sometimes better than Rudd, but their chemistry is sweet and overdone as oft is the case in such films. It is just as much her story, but Rudd does get the better jokes. 
 
The plot — The Wasp's mom has gone missing in the quantum realm. Her father, the well-coifed Michael Douglas, thinks they have the technology to get her back, but there's the tricky business of "Ghost," a super-powered being who wants the tech too, and her abilities make it easy for her to just walk through walls and people to get it. Then there's the obvious but delicious to watch Walton Goggins who simply wants to profit from it. A solid cast and a good script make for one enjoyable summer movie. 
 
**Make sure you stay until the very end through the credits!
