A winning addition to Marvel's cinematic universe, Ant Man follows Dr Hank Pym (Douglas) as he fails in re-sizing himself, but unexpectedly imbues himself with the ability to talk to and control insects. With winning performances from Rudd, Cannavale and Douglas, this charming and eccentric heist film has a great sense of humour, though it's not all light-hearted. Father-daughter relationships add splendid emotional weight, while the film also addresses the female-fronted superhero film dilemma. Yes, there's mayhem, but it’s gilded with a sense of responsibility and mischief, all of which adds up to an utter delight.
