Ant-Man 3D

Paul Rudd is Scott Lang, Marvel’s size-changing scientist in this superhero origin story directed by Peyton Reed (Yes Man). Co-stars Evangeline Lilly (The Hobbit), Michael Peña (Fury), Judy Greer (The Descendants) and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man.

Scott's a well-intentioned burglar fresh out of the slammer and eager to turn over a new leaf for the sake of his estranged daughter - until a classic "one last job" scenario leaes him seeing things in a new, miniaturised, light. He's been unwittingly recruited by Hank Pym, creator of a shrinking, super-powered suit, to take on the mantle of Ant-Man and prevent Pym's technology falling into the wrong hands.

Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) was originally set to helm the film until creative differences saw him hand the reigns over to Reed. Wright and writing partner Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) retain story and screenplay credits, joined in the latter by Rudd and Anchorman director Adam McKay.

Succeeds well enough as a genial diversion and sometimes a delightful one, predicated on the rarely heeded Hollywood wisdom that less really can be more.

Reed might lack the pop-art pizzazz and unruly ambition Wright might have provided (yes, that's a lot of "mights"...), but he nails the comedy/drama/action balance and slam-dunks the set-pieces.

Even the jokes that do work leave some laughs on the table, and the impulse to play things safe proves emblematic of a film that shrinks in the face of a challenge.

I walked into Ant-Man ready – at last – to be underwhelmed by Marvel. I left pretty happy.

There's no sensitivity, no eye for movement, no feeling for the way a camera can create emotion out of nothing, no heart beating beneath its celluloid skin.

Although the story dynamics are fundamentally silly and the family stuff is elemental button-pushing, a good cast led by a winning Paul Rudd puts the nonsense over in reasonably disarming fashion.

Extremely likable, with a few moments of proper wonder.
