One night when driving home after a party, Starr and her friend Khalil get pulled over by the police for unclear reasons. Khalil doesn’t exactly follow the instructions of the police officer, who gets nervous, thinks he sees a gun, and shoots and kills Khalil.
Michael Douglas plays Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man – but now too old and worn to don the miniature superhero suit himself, he sets out to find a suitable replacement. Who knew that could be Paul Rudd (as Scott Lang), who shows that he can do more than just being the cutesy boyfriend in yet another middle of the road rom-com.
Michael Bay + Marky Mark + The Rock…? That doesn’t bode well…
So I started watching it with some trepidation. Guess what: it is surprisingly entertaining. No spoilers so I won’t go into the story, but these guys have lost the plot. And this is supposedly not even just based on a true story, it effectively is a (Bay-ified) docudrama of the actual events. The acting is surprisingly good – The Rock is funny in his reborn stupidity; Tony Shalboub is on form as asshole/victim, and Mark Wahlberg is believable as the man-with-a-plan.
