The Arkham Sessions, Ep. 174 – Ant-Man
Unfortunately, the film falls flat because his grief is eclipsed by Lang’s journey, his quick successes and easy breaks. Because Lang’s hardships rarely take hold, Ant-Man falls flat as a whole and the outcomes sometimes feel frustratingly disproportionate, especially when Lang is surrounded by less-privileged thieves and criminals. The Pym suit, like the proverbial invisible weightless knapsack of privilege, is like a pack that holds special provisions, maps, passports, codebooks, visas, tools, blank checks and other unearned assets that Lang can obliviously rely on to slip under and above the law.
