Counting the outbreak of the epidemic in 2020, until February 16 of this year, audiences in mainland China have not watched a new Marvel superhero movie in cinemas for more than three years.
In 2020, because of the outbreak of the epidemic, the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” did not launch a superhero blockbuster in a year’s time.
By 2021, the epidemic has eased a little, “Marvel Cinematic Universe” has launched four films in a row, but for various reasons these four Marvel films have not been able to pass the Chinese mainland audit.
In 2022, the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” released three more films, which, like the previous year, were not released in Chinese theaters for various reasons, except for the late ‘Black Panther : Wakanda Forever’.
The reason why the above time to end on February 16 this year, it is because by February 17, the Chinese mainland audience finally ushered in a new Marvel superhero film, this new Marvel superhero film is to open the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” the fifth phase of the first film ‘ Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’.
‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ is the first Marvel superhero blockbuster to hit theaters in mainland China in the last three years or so (not counting ‘Black Panther : Wakanda Forever’), and it’s also the first film to open the fifth phase of the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” the fifth phase of the first film, so this film can naturally attract a lot of viewers to the theater to watch.
However, even if it attracted a lot of viewers, but because the film itself is not too good, so ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ is difficult to be like those comic book movies three or four years ago, to create a very impressive box office results.
In terms of special effects, ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ is not too much of an improvement, but rather a step in the same direction, without making people feel amazing.
From the point of view of the story plot, ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ has a lot of implausible places.
For Ant-Man such a “dessert role”, why will drag the family with the old and the young to go hard on the strength of the villain Kang, this off a lot of viewers have expressed their incomprehension, feeling is a bug in the setting.
On the whole, ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ is not a very strong viewing experience, and it does not have a plot worth remembering.
No wonder the film’s Rotten Tomatoes freshness rating was only 53% (it has dropped to 49% now) after the overseas media’s word-of-mouth ban was officially lifted.
Overall, ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ is indeed not very good looking, but it’s not very hard to watch either.
In ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’, they have added at least some new characters, and the characters are still very strong in their settings.
There is also a big battle at the end of the film is also quite wonderful, is a return to the normal level of Marvel.
Overall, the quality of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ is not as good as the pre-2019 Marvel films, but it is better than those seven Phase 4 films.
