Your feelings here mirror my own in many ways. I think the first two Ant-Man movies had a really unique identity within the Marvel canon, combining Paul Rudd’s winning charisma with the action/comedy vernacular of a heist movie, and I think where this film missteps is in eschewing that template and tone. Pretty much everything that made the prior two films noteworthy and special is absent here, by design. The first two Ant-Man films did things that really wouldn’t happen anywhere else in the MCU, whereas this could have been any MCU film. Taking Rudd out of the writer’s seat was probably a conceptual error from the start.

We started watching this on D+ last night and after the first couple scenes I already have the sense that it's gonna be a chore to get through. Kind of like Pirates of the Caribbean 4. Or 3, for that matter.

You know, I watched this over the weekend and enjoyed it. I agree that the unique form the Ant-Man films had in the first two films was sorely missed, and while the quantum space was visually 'cool' I missed seeing Scott/Ant-Man doing his thing out in the real world. Lots to enjoy about the film and I found the visual effects much better than expected based on all the hubbub when the film was released theatrically. Still, I was entertained and found Jonathan Majors utterly compelling as the big bad.
