Ant-Man and the Wasp is a fun and ultimately entertaining comic book movie and although it doesn’t measure up, at least in its depth, to other Marvel movies, still is a movie the entire family can watch and enjoy.

Traffic still is as engrossing today as it was the first day I saw it in the theaters 11 years ago.
