    Great Movie

    Ant-Man looks great on Blu-ray. The 1.85:1 framing helps accentuate the movie's contrasting "large" and "small" visuals (something Reed and Rudd discuss in the commentary) and the Blu-ray captures that sense of large scale scope, evident even on surfaces far smaller than standard theater screens. The 1080p image, sourced from a digital shoot, is very clean and a touch smooth, but details are terrifically captured, particularly all of the little touches on the Ant-Man, Yellowjacket, and Falcon costumes. Nylon is particularly dense and tactile, but the more rubbery-looking supports on muscles and joints look great, too. The Ant-Man helmet, when seen in close-up, reveals terrific detailing in the way of scratches and wear. Colors are vibrant and pleasing. There's a decidedly slick, gray appearance to the film's early shots from 1989, but there's a color diversity and faultless saturation evident throughout. Scott's pink and blue Baskin Robbins uniform leaps off the screen. The red accents on the Ant-Man costume are deep and accurate. Bright city lights stand apart from inky deep blacks. Flesh tones raise no alarms. Light noise appears in a couple of lower-light scenes but is never intrusive. Macroblocking, banding, aliasing, and other issues are nonexistent. This is a stellar effort from Disney.

    Great modern superhero movie

    I found this movie to be a good breath of fresh air compared to a lot of the more recent superhero genre movies out there that are plagued by: over the top special effects, over the top violence and gore (FYI: there IS a separate genre for that sort of thing right?), poor scripting, poor plots, poor acting, alpha male bravado (unless of course that is being done comically), and way too serious or overly preachy dialogue where you download your brain into some blue aliens to fight those greedy industrial capitalists that will mow over plague carrying rodents to mine unobtainium. So now to THIS MOVIE: Without divulging too much about it I'd say it's everything a superhero movie should be: It has good character interaction and development which helps you to care about what's going on with them, it's good good action scenes, excellent comedy relief, excellent acting, and an engaging plot. Oh, and most importantly, it don't have no sappy blue creatures, political mantras that the director is trying to preach to you, 55 gallon buckets of rasberry syrup with people in a blender scenes, and characters that you would care less about what happened to them in the movie as they were less memorable than the free chotsky trinkets that corporations hand out at trade shows. So yeah, it's a great modern superhero movie that I enjoy watching over and over again.

    MCU keeps winning

    When I first heard that Marvel was doing an Ant-Man film, I was shocked. Granted, Ant-Man is part of The Avengers, I just didn't see that character working out in a solo film at this stage in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). I'm partial to comic book films but I felt that an Ant-Man movie was the final straw for comic book films. Luckily, my curiosity got the best of me and being that I have invested so much time and money in the previous MCU films, I decided to give this one a try and was happy with the results. Paul Rudd didn't strike me as a typical comic book superhero actor but he made it work. He brought the comedic timing and vulnerability that was needed for this role. Michael Douglas stole the show though. He was perfectly cast as Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man and mentor to Rudd's Scott Lang. Michael Pena and T.I. brought decent comic relief as Lang's sidekicks. Evangeline Lilly was great too and will be better when she dons the Wasp costume in the next go round. Corey Stoll wasn't perfect but was convincing enough as Darren Cross/Yellowjacket. Anthony Mackie's Falcon cameo was a nice tie-in with the Avengers movie. Overall, it's another solid addition to the ever growing MCU, right up there with the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy but much more grounded and smaller in scale (no pun intended).

    Not Overwhelming for Marvel to ME

    I was a bit disappointed in this Marvel movie. To me did not have the grandeur of the rest of the Marvel Universe. Many seem to have like this, I just think it fell flat and to me was a waste of time watching. From the start the plot seemed canned, Yet at the same time, the movie has a kind of been there, done that kind of feeling. Many of the characters and situations you will have seen before, or see that they've only been given a slight cosmetic change for this particular story. The movie also suffers from a problem many superhero movies have - being forced to go through the long process of showing how the main character became a superhero. This takes a long time, leaving only a limited amount of time to show the superhero after "graduation" to be in action. Also, there are some unclear or simply unexplained plot points, like why the cops took so long to confront the Michael Douglas character. In the end, the movie is kind of minor league stuff. Despite its many problems, the movie doesn't really provoke hatred in the viewer. But at the same time, it's missing real spark as well as originality in many areas. Your reaction to the movie will likely be more positive the less you have to pay for watching it, as well as being more positive the less demanding you are feeling at the time.

    I had made up my mind to skip this movie, even though I am a fan of the actors, the genre, and have seen every other Marvel movie. If I hadn't looked at the well-written, comprehensive and positive reviews here, I would have missed what is undoubtedly one of the best Marvel films to date! You can read all these great reviews here, so I will keep this short and sweet!. This was a joy to watch, innovative, with just the right blend of action, tension, family, incredible special effects, etc. Michael Douglas was fantastic as always, Paul Rudd took a strange role in a genre he is not used to and made it his own. Michael Pena was brilliant, and added some excellent comedic timing, with the lip syncing bits practically stealing the show. And Evangeline Lily, you simply have to appreciate for the ability to portray a strong, sexy woman who can hold her own, can still show some emotion, and all without relying on tactics like butt shots and thigh high slit skirts. As she was referred to in the film - "the mean pretty lady". You'll laugh, you'll be astonished, you might even tear up a bit (not me, but maybe you), you'll cheer. As with all Marvel films, wait for the final credits to finish, and let the anticipation begin!

    What a cast of characters! I thoroughly enjoyed the chemistry between the characters and the exceptional talent underneath. Beyond the acting, the thing that really excited me was the attention to detail in references to the physics of his shrinking capabilities. Only one thing didn't sit right with me (but I chose to ignore for the sake of entertainment) is his mass when small. To put it into layman's terms: Assume he weighs 200 Lbs when full size. His feet are distributing that weight among approximately 100 square inches. Now, when he shrinks, presumably his mass increases in density at the sub-atomic level and he retains the same mass as if he was full size. Matter can neither be created nor destroyed so it must either increase or decrease in density to give the illusion of either. Now his feet are distributing that same 200 Lbs in a tiny fraction of the footprint he had full size. This would be very much like setting a 200 Lb object on the head of a small finishing nail and not expecting it to pierce and sink into any porous materials. In other words, why didn't he sink into wooden floors, dirt, shoulders...you get the idea. All in all, I still say it earned the five stars!

    I've been scouting out this movie for quite sometime and just recently is dropped to 19.99 @ bestbuy. So I had to jump on it fast, plus it hardly drops below 35 bucks for more than a few days at a time. I saw it when it came to movie theaters, but didn't get to see it in 3D. The video quality and audio were the same as I remember seeing in the movie theater. I knew this movie would be close too a homerun once I saw it in 3D and it didn't disappoint. I didn't experience any ghosting or aliasing, the picture remained crisp the whole time. I couldn't give the 3D a 5 because they could've done more with it. I would've enjoyed some popout effects, but the overall depth and immersion is there. Sin City is still my favorite 3D movie to this date, it adds depth, immersion and popout effects to perfection. If this would've had the popout effects there might have been a tie on my list. But overall, I enjoyed the movie throughly. I highly recommend you pickup a copy when the price drops again. Hope my review helps.

    When I bought this BluRay from Best Buy I was expecting to add to my collection and enjoy a night in with my wife. Little did we know the cinematic masterpiece that we were about to witness. First of all, the packaging is top notch for a BluRay. Why spend the extra money on a metal box when plastic technology has come such a long way? The case is amazing in its translucent qualities giving an air of sophistication that is unheard of for an item in it's class. On top of that, it holds two discs along with promotional material! Now we get to the movie itself. The packaging made for a tough act to follow but boy does it deliver! This movie, ladies and gentlemen, is a cinematic masterpiece that rivals the likes of Gone With the Wind. The casting in this movie is superb. It is a crime that Michael Peña was snubbed at the oscars for his role in this film. The touching story of a father who must do the unthinkable to provide for his family tugs the heartstrings, and adds a human element that completely immersed the audience. In conclusion you cannot go wrong buying this movie. I can only hope that you find it as riveting as I did.
