Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has received mixed reviews from critics. While the film has been praised for the introduction of Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror, it falls short in other areas such as the script, CGI quality, and originality. The film has scored only 53% on Rotten Tomatoes, making it only the second MCU film to receive a “rotten” rating.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania Review
Despite the negative reviews, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Michael Douglas reprise their roles, with Kathryn Newton and Michelle Pfeiffer joining the cast. The film follows the adventures of Scott Lang, a former thief turned superhero, as he teams up with Hope van Dyne and others to fight Kang the Conqueror, a time-traveling supervillain and the next big bad of the MCU.

Critics have not held back their criticism of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle described the film as “bad drama, bad science fiction, and a waste of everyone in it.” Derek Smith of Slant Magazine called it “a tired retread of adventures we’ve already been on.” Kristy Puchko of Mashable labeled it a “chaotic, woefully unfunny mess,” and David Sims of The Atlantic criticized it as a film “in service of the larger Marvel engine, an increasingly creaky machine that nevertheless keeps grinding away.”

The film’s saving grace is the introduction of Kang the Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors. Critics have praised Majors’ performance, calling him a “truly formidable and worthy villain” and “a thrilling villain poised to alter the course of the MCU.”
In conclusion, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania fails to live up to Marvel’s high standards. While the film has its moments, it ultimately falls short in many areas, leaving audiences wanting more. Nevertheless, fans of the MCU will likely still enjoy the film and will be excited to see what Kang the Conqueror brings to the future of the franchise.
