If you felt Infinity War was bad - like a slog to get through - then you really have to see Ant-Man and the Wasp. Rather than handle the big issues of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the sequel to 2015's Ant-Man earns a place as one of the best Marvel movies by putting characters first and letting them tell a personal story. It builds a tight, small-scale adventure while still providing plenty of clues and Easter eggs for Marvel fans who know what they're seeking.
Infinity War left many open-ended questions, such as: What happened to half the population of the universe? Ant-Man and the Wasp doesn't tie up any of those loose ends, but it's not trying to, either. This makes it a much-needed break from the rest of the MCU. Before you read further to find out what Ant-Man and the Wasp gets right: There are plenty of spoilers ahead for both Infinity War and the Ant-Man sequel. Consider yourself warned.
