Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)

Initially intending to just watch parts of this movie for screenshots, I essentially watched the entire movie for a second time - I estimate having skipped past or missed ten minutes of the movie.

Hope van Dyne / Wasp (Evangeline Lilly)

In any case, seeing Evangeline Lilly as the Wasp was exciting. Her action scenes were top-notched. In particular, her first solo fight scene may have been the best in the movie.

In contrast, the final fight scene with Ava/Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) was anti-climatic: Scott/Ant-Man simply pulls the plug on Ava in order prevent her from extracting Janet's energy. Giving it some thought, it would have been cooler if the extraction had to be stopped by a remote carried by Ava and stopping her would be accomplished by a coordinated attack on her by Scott and Hope.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie and, if anything, the post end titles (pre credits) cut scene is a must-watch for anyone who follows most of the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Scott Lang / Ant-Man (Paul Rudd)

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 98% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.
