My Review:
Having seen Marvel bring out another movie to the MCU I just needed to see this film and got around to seeing it at the weekend. Although hearing a lot of mixed reactions I did like this film wasn't really impressed with it either.

The movie is about how Scott is under house arrest and has a dream about Hope's mother and them trying to bring her back from the quantum realm however there is a woman called Eva who is able to phase and want's the power that Hope's mother would have in order to get her life back to normal.

I thought that this film was humorous and it did make me laugh and I though that seeing how Hope and Scott still have feelings for each other was rather cute. I liked how the police kept trying to catch Scott away from his home as he is under house arrest however to no avail. With the acting still being good throughout I did find that this did make me enjoy the movie. I also thought that as they were looking for Hope's mother this was a good edition to the movie and I hope that in the future they use more of her character as she was able to be saved and did have powers which did come from the quantum realm. Alongside this having Hank made his lab small and using small cars as well as being able to make a small home was a great way of being able to take their work everywhere and make it harder for the villain to be able to get their hands on their work.

I did find however, that I was confused why Ava's character was in this movie as she did not really add much to the movie in terms of being a villain also the plot didn't really seem to go into depth making the audience question why this film was really made as it had no effect on anything else going on in the MCU or much on the film overall.

Overall, I liked this movie but thought that it needed more depth into it and a better understanding to the movie. I would recommend this movie to those who like the MCU and are wanting more of a comedic superhero movie. I would also recommend this movie to those who are wanting something really easy to follow.

My Rating: 4/5

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie.

By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
