Ant-Man (2015 PG-13), directed by Peyton Reed, is a super hero movie that is clever and witty and fits in nicely with the rest of the Avengers universe.
But there were too many bugs for me to enjoy it. I couldn’t laugh when the audience laughed. I couldn’t “ohh” when the Avengers references were made. Too many bugs. Literally.
Ants. All over the screen. Ick. Yuck. Gross.
Even now, safe at home, writing about the movie makes me squirm. But that’s just me.
You, if you like Agents of Shield and Iron Man and Hulk and Captain America and Avengers, you will like this movie.
Stay to the very very end for a nice tie in to other Marvel movies.

Dr Pym’s daughter Hope (Evangeline Lilly) is undercover trying to help.
Scott’s friends (T. I., Michael Pena, and David Dastmalchian) help him break in.
Scott has a daughter (Abby Ryder Fortson) and ex-wife (Judy Greer).
That’s me suffering in a swarm of bugs.
