Finally a new superhero from Marvel Universe featured in its own movie.  Ant Man is part of the Avengers team which consists of more popular teammates like Iron-Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America.  Being able to shrink back and forth in size at will and ability to talk with ants are really cool ability that should put him on par with the other heavyweights teammates.  

On to the movie, Paul Rudd playing as Scott Lang, the 2nd Ant Man.  He portrays it pretty well as usual Marvel movie always has lighter side of it.   Evangeline Lilly shows her muscular sexy side of her which I honesly never saw before in her other appearances.  Michael Douglas plays Hank Pym, 1st Ant Man, which I think it is his first involvement in a Marvel movie.  Nice going, Mike. Marvel movie is almost always a blockbuster and it is only right everyone wants some important part in it.  Coupled with percentage sharing compensation, it is even more enticing.  More popular the movie, more ka-ching in their cash register.  

I found Ant man better in comparison with some other Marvel movie like Wolverine and Thor series.  It is crisp and lighter and good to watch as a family.  Kids 5-6 years old and above can enjoy the movie unlike Wolverine that tend to scare them with the vicious retractable blades.  Of course Iron-Man is a different story.  But then again, it is my opinion only.  :)
