‘Ant Man,’ directed by Peyton Reed

Movie, 2015

Super-hero film which swerves around being half-way great entertainment, to occasional ludicrous, too-stretched daft, to just a little confusing, in either the too real stupid action scenes and intertextuality with other Marvel characters. It feels as if the tropes and clichés are given the twist of including intelligent yet brainwashed ants. That’s about it. Otherwise, you have removed parents, a protégé gone bad, sleazy power characters, an unlikely yet brilliant hero, blah blah blah. On its own merits, however, this film is pretty entertaining, with a reasonable amount of humour thrown in, which gives some hint of formulae being stretched.
