Paul Rudd stars as Scott Lang (who becomes "Ant Man" )- a character who was a thief but trying to reform to work for good, with new technology and a specially designed suit is able to shrink to about the size of an ant., with superhuman strength and is sent on an important mission.

A good film, similar in some ways to Marvel's other release - Iron Man but with a hero whose suit allows him to shrink to around ant size and and to team up with ants on a mission. Not necessarily the most believable film but good in it's own way.

The extras on the disc are generally good, though a bit more could have been spent on the behind the scenes/making of shots. This is a BD-J title and resume play works as long as reselect the option you were playing (search as a commentary).
