Be the person they think you are.
Scott (Paul Rudd) has recently gotten out of jail for grand larceny and it determined to set himself straight so that he can spend time with his young daughter. He finds it hard to get a job with his record and reluctantly takes a job offer from his friend, Luis (Michael Peña) to help rob a rich man's mansion. That rich man ends up being Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and it turns out he lets Scott break in. He wants his talents specifically to become the Ant-Man and steal back some tech Pym hid from the world, only for his former protege Daren Cross (Corey Stoll) to dig up and try to perfect for himself.
Not surprisingly, the best parts of Ant-Man are the references made to the Avengers. Another Peggy Carter cameo, an "old storage shed" turning out to be the Avengers' new headquarters, a brief fight with The Falcon himself. Rudd is a very charismatic lead, but he's almost overshadowed by the awesomeness that is Michael Peña. While those two are high points on the acting front, Stoll and Evangeline Lilly are the lows. Stoll doesn't elevate Cross above anything other than a cartoony villain, and Lilly seems to be there only go between smirking and resting bitch face.
Still, while Ant-Man might not be the best super hero movie out there, it does well enough differentiating itself. The climax has a lot less destruction than other Marvel films, which is a bit of a welcomed change. Plus, you get to see Avon Barksdale as a cop, and there's a hell of a tease for Civil War after the credits.

Moment Brittani almost killed someone: Remember when I saw Wild and I complained about the couple I was sitting next to that kept saying "She's going to get raped. Right here, this is where it happens." etc etc? Well, I'm about 80% sure I sat next to this obnoxious assholes AGAIN. The lady gave me a weird look when I sat down, I figured it's because my assigned seat was right next to theirs and the theater wasn't full yet. (Yes, this particular theater here make you pick your seat when you buy your ticket) When the movie starts, they both kept talking to each other. The guy actually got up to answer a call, and when he came back, detailed his entire call to his wife WHILE the movie was playing. And they laughed SO loudly at the dumbest jokes. Just like the last time.
