Ant-Man and Writing

Ant-Man-Banner-Slide

Ant-Man was the last superheroic movie that was added to the Marvel cinematic movie continuity last year (weird saying that). I didn’t get to it until later on in the year much after the fact. I had some time to watch it last month so I sat down and give it a look. Of course, when I watch a movie I’m not just looking to be entertained. I’m looking at all of the nuances like camera shots, dialogue, and the overall writing which to me, if it’s bad, the whole movie is a wash and it won’t matter what actor you put in it to try to save it. I was wondering if this was going to be one of those movies.

I don’t think so. As a matter of fact, I think it’s a given.
