The film is the 5th in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ( MCU) and 3rd in the Ant Man series.
The film hit screens on Feb 17th .

After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), the Ant-Man is settled in San Francisco and  lives the good life with his wife Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), the Wasp, and daughter Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton).
One day he discovers that Cassie has built  a tiny device with the help of her grandpa Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), through which one can penetrate into the Quantum Realm.
When her  grandmother Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) sees this,  she gets upset and asks her to immediately stop sending the  signals to that world.

But, things get out of hand and the next minute the entire family  is sucked into the Quantum Realm with its new beings and strange goings on. They discover many new secrets that Janet was hiding about  Kang: The Conqueror (Jonathan Majors). Why Janet terrified of him? What happens to them? Do they ever return home?

This time round too there are several marvellous elements like a new juice with powers, moving buildings and strangely built creatures in different shapes and materials and Ant Man in hundreds of avatars and Modak to name a few. The Wasp hasnt much to do,  this time its Janet, Ant Man and Cassie that are actively engaged in major turnarounds in the film.  Janet shines with a meaty part. 

Though Kang with his secrets is terrifying and has some gripping action portions of villainy, he seems weaker than one would expect as he doesnt get to his objectives easily.
Lord Kryler ( Bill Murray) has a brief but significant presence.

The vfx , edit and camera teams do a neat job. Watch out for interesting details of a peek into  future Marvel content, in the end- credits section.
The film maybe underwhelming in parts  but overall serves up ample entertainment for a watch.
