The debacle that was Antman & Wasp Quantumania 

The out-of-this-world film, “Antman and Wasp Quantumania” follows the events that were portrayed in the series “Loki” that lead the characters in a series of life-and-death situations. 

So far, these movies have primarily managed to create a decent mix of emotion, jokey humor and superheroes. 

If successful, most of these elements will result in full power. When they fail, the films tend to be too sentimental, comical or full of impressive action scenes. 

“Quantumania” makes you appreciate achievements like the “Avatar” movies even more. There too, we mostly have decorative environments created with visual effects. 

These scenes are roughly thought out and considered; they have a vision, coherence and internal logic with the respect that contributes to the film. 

This film does lack what other Marvel films had, with it being intriguing and also a monumental phenomenon that was the “Avengers.”

Directed by Peyton Reed (the first film had multiple screenwriters), “Quantumania” moves innocently at first, fueled by the charm and professionalism of the cast and the expectations of the story. 

The realm has an ominous hue, fractals, biomorphic organisms, streams of fire and strange creatures, including Bill Murray.

There were great performances from all of the actors and actresses in this film, including Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michelle Pfeiffer and more. 

The main asset of the film is Jonathan Majors as Kang, the conqueror and his performance was excellent due to the fact that he honestly was seen as a great evil manipulator. 

This quest got them outside their comfort zones and pushed them beyond the limits of anything they thought possible.

Although this film did have great acting and was comical, it seemed not to have the audience’s attention and was slow at specific points. 

Overall this film could be seen as underwhelming and lacking in the audience’s eyes which could leave others hoping for more in future Marvel movies.
