    Just got back from seeing it.

    I can't even describe the trip that was. Easily my best time in a cinema ever. The only moments I didn't want to scream, "FUCK YEAH," were the moments the entire cinema was deathly still.

    GO SEE IT!

    It was by far my favourite MCU movie, it truly is a fan's wet dream.

    Pros:
    As usual great acting all around. We've known most of these actors for several years and this time we really see them put through the winger even more than usual. I don't wan't to highlight any performances to avoid any spoiler except for Josh Brolin as Thanos who is truly incredible.

    Comedy. The stakes are at their highest and yet the jokes always manage to hit. No issues in the tone of the film.

    The action sequences are so over the top and creative! This is a new benchmark for Marvel (huge props to all the actors/technical artists/stuntmen/choregraphers). I can't stress it enough: they didn't hold anything back, with some fanservice and sheer moments of madness. And again it also helps that the characters involved are all familiar to the audience, making you extremely worry and invested in their fate.

    Cons

    The rythm is sometimes disjointed. We follow different groups of characters during the film doing their thing, but the films make strange cuts during some intense scenes with a group of characters and jumps suddenly to another group in a vastly different situation.

    With all the characters the film has to juggle with everyone gets it time to shine but some characters do end up feeling underused.

    Overall entertaining, with some moments that were done really well, and hit like a truck.

    There were a few scenes that were written pretty damn poorly, and broke even the hefty amount of suspension of disbelief that I give Marvel films. Really disliked how they handled some of the characters, felt hamfisted and unnecessary.

    On the other hand, Tom Holland and Robert Downey Junior fucking killed it this film. Superb acting.

    Also massive credit to the director/producers for the five minutes. Balls of solid fucking steel. Ending was fantastic.

    8/10 - one of my favourite Marvel films yet. Would recommend watching in cinemas.

    Watched it. Was good but not great. A bit disjointed, but still worth the watch.

    6.5/10

    Antman and the Wasp finally made it to the UK, and it was great fun. Much smaller scale (pun not wholly intended) than probably any other film in the MCU thus far - it's certainly not an end of the world scenario - but still packs in a whole lot of cool and inventive set pieces and some breezy comedy, while developing the characters a bit more. I barely remembered Cassie from the first film, but one of my main takeaways from this was wanting the MCU to carry on long enough for her to take up her dad's legacy.
    Given some casting news/rumours for Avengers 4, this might be happening sooner rather than later, but we'll see what happens. [\spoiler]

    Despite the more personal story though, it looks pretty likely that its going to be very important for future installments.
    The credit scene leaves Scott trapped in the quantum realm, seconds after being warned about time vortexes, while Hope, Hank and Janet are killed by the gauntlet. Time travel has been raised as a likely scenario for Avengers 4, so this is probably how that'll happen, if true.[\spoiler]
