It was a fun movie, I enjoyed watching it a lot. There were some genuinely funny moments. They changed canon in this movie probably more than any other, but realistically they had no other choice. The canon around ant-man had aged badly, to say the very least. In the end I was satisfied with what they did (except for the part about Janet.) The story telling scenes were awesome, I love the way they were done.
All this being said Tor.com asked if Ant-Man was a necessary part of the MCU canon? I would say no, it wasn’t. The movie didn’t really add anything to the MCU mythos or world building.
