Consensus: Led by a charming performance from Paul Rudd, Ant-Man offers Marvel thrills on an appropriately smaller scale -- albeit not as smoothly as its most successful predecessors.

No other Marvel installment has felt as weighed down by its obligations to the franchise.

The overwhelming, self-serious sense that we are watching something Very Important blissfully doesn't exist in Ant-Man. It's just plain fun: light, breezy, simple and enjoyable.

Yes, it's funny at times and nearly always entertaining but, helped by a terrific cast and a thoughtfully constructed screenplay, Ant-Man has enough gravitas and drama to keep an open-minded adult audience entertained, alongside its target younger market.

Ant-Man is a very enjoyable movie on its own merit. Paul Rudd's everyman charm is put to good use as Scott Lang, but Michael Pena walks away with the best parts of the movie as Scott's former cell mate, Luis.

Gotta be worst of the Marvel's superhero flicks I've watched so far. Fails to rise above mediocrity, thanks to the shabby execution, poor dialogues… More

Funny and action-packed. Definitely looking forward for a sequel or at least seeing Rudd playing this role again.

Its funny to think that when I first heard about an Ant-Man movie being made, I admit, I scoffed at it. I really thought there was no way they could make a… More

Paul Rudd leads this cheerful romp in the Marvel canon, one bolstered by fun and inventiveness rather than the usual superhero conventions some claim to grow… More
