Review: ‘Ant-Man & The Wasp’ delivers big with small stakes

The first Ant-Man is a good film. Immediately following Avengers: Age of Ultron is was light, funny, full of great performances, and had refreshingly small, personal stakes. Ant-Man & The Wasp continues these traditions: it’s a light, funny movie with some great performances, smaller, more personal stakes, and it immediately followed Avengers: Infinity War which had literal end-of-the-entire-universe stakes.

I fell pretty squarely in the “love it camp but in reflection I could have easily gone the other way. You see Anchorman was originally going to have a lot more going on. In fact there were so many different takes and removed sub plots that they were eventually assembled into a whole other film titled “Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie“.

Most of Wake Up isn’t good and it’s easy to see why none of it was included in Anchorman.

I am telling you all of this because I really feel like Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues could really have done with a bunch of stuff cut out.
