Buy it... if you appreciated Christophe Beck's snazzy caper style of Ant-Man but desire a more traditional, symphonic superhero atmosphere built on top of the same skittish rhythmic formations.

Avoid it... if your attraction to Beck's work for this franchise was in precisely the outward humor that has been supplanted by weightier dramatic fantasy for the sequel, despite a butt-kicking identity developed for the Wasp.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: (Christophe Beck/Various) Set at about the same time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the depressing events of Avengers: Infinity War, 2018's Ant-Man and the Wasp is a refreshingly optimistic and fun deviation from the darkness of its sibling films. While notably addressing the larger universe's events in a mid-credits scene, the sequel to 2015's Ant-Man is largely a standalone entry of wholesome superhero humor and action. Whereas the prior film established the character of Scott Lang as Ant-Man and followed his exciting heists with caper-like enthusiasm, this sequel explores Hope van Dyne and her evolution into the Wasp using a far more traditional fantasy plotline. The titular duo apply their size-altering technologies in an effort to rescue van Dyne's mother, the original Wasp, and help cure the quasi-villain, Ava Starr, who torments the protagonists' plans as her alter-ego, Ghost. The de-aging of actors Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer for flashbacks is a particularly noteworthy point of interest. Rather than the funk and chasing on display in Ant-Man, you receive a more traditional fantasy formula for Ant-Man and the Wasp, one reliant upon alternate universes and character confrontations. This shift in emphasis towards the melodramatic, while retaining just enough humor from the prior entry, yielded identically lucrative returns for the studio. The refocusing had a significant impact upon the music for the film as well, the increasingly serious score in Ant-Man and the Wasp reducing the presence of songs and jazzy underscore in favor of a much more prominent orchestral role in the soundscape. This development will disappoint the many fans of Christophe Beck's music for Ant-Man, the composer's mainstream breakthrough (despite prior successes in the Frozen and Percy Jackson franchises), but the equation will please those looking to hear more influences from Alan Silvestri and/or Brian Tyler in his music. Considered as a whole, this change in demeanor from Beck is a mixed bag, with some fantastic new highlights and some disappointing omissions as related to faithfulness to the prior score.
