Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania becomes the second MCU film in history to get a ‘rotten’ rating

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania becomes the second MCU film in history to get a ‘rotten’ rating

The flick scored a dismal 53 per cent on the movie website.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has become the second Marvel Cinematic Universe film to receive a ‘rotten’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

As the reviews start to drip in for the latest MCU film, it's not looking amazing.

The flick has received a dismal 53 per cent on the film and television review website so far, making it the second-lowest rating in the MCU.

The lowest is Eternals, which sits at 47 per cent. Yikes.

Movie critic for Slant Magazine, Derek Smith, said it was a lukewarm way to kick off Phase Five.

He wrote: “Quantumania feels less the start of a new phase of Marvel films than a tired retread of adventures we’ve already been on.”

He added while the filmmakers were trying to set a more ‘ominous’ tone for the threequel, the ‘overabundance of unconvincing green screen’ made it fall flat.

Writer for Deadline, Pete Hammond, also said the flick failed to break new ground, as it’s nothing we haven’t seen before.

He said: “I have to confess I am getting quite sick of the sorcerer-style flashy and fiery effects so many of these comic book movies revel in. Mix it up next time, guys.”

While Kristy Puncho for Mashable said the film doesn’t capitalize on what made the franchise successful in the first place.

She said: “In all of this, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is a chaotic, woefully unfunny mess that has forgotten why its hero was such fun.”

But alas! Don’t completely lose hope moviegoers, as some gave the flick a thumbs up.

Fiction Machine writer Grant Watson called it a ‘wonderfully enjoyable blockbuster’.

While Laura Clifford from Reeling Reviews praised it for carving out a new purpose and world, which makes it ‘more entertaining than its predecessor’.

Just to catch you up to speed, the film will follow Ant-Man and the Wasp, who find themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures while embarking on an adventure that pushes them beyond the limits of what they thought possible.

Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly reprise their roles as superheroes.

Joining Rudd and Lilly is Kathryn Newton, Jonathan Majors, Michelle Pfeiffer, Bill Murray, Michael Douglas and Samuel L. Jackson.

Peyton Reed directed, with Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard as producers and Jeff Loveness as the main writer.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is scheduled to be released February 16.
