We saw Ant-Man this week and it was super fun! Coming after the more epic scale Guardians and Avengers movies, Marvel’s latest is a refreshingly down-to-earth comedy with heart and plenty of action — but mostly lots of laughs. While it’s technically a solo film compared to the team movies, Ant-Man is basically a superpowered heist flick, so you know he rolls with a team of quirky but lovable knucklehead offenders (primarily Michael Pena who steals the show more times you can count) — not to mention a huge army of several different types of ants, and a solid supporting cast.

On top of all this, Ant-Man has tons of organic ties to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including a hilarious and surprisingly lengthy cameo from an Avenger which we won’t spoil, plus two great credits scenes — so make sure you stay til the very end!
