Spoiler Alert: Nobody got hurt during the 4DX experience
One of my favorite cartoons back in the day was Ant Man because he was not your typical super hero, even though he did have all the super powers of an Ant, but I liked how the cartoon did not take itself seriously because essentially it was a guy in an ant costume solving and preventing crimes. So, when I heard they were doing an Ant Man movie, I was super excited but then I saw the trailer for the movie, which I felt a bit disappointed that they didn’t go with the animated version of it with the goofy costume. But the nerd in me was going to see the movie regardless if wasn’t as true as the original, which I was pleasantly surprised on how fun the movie was, in which the 4DX experience probably helped with the overall experience.
4DX allows a motion picture presentation to be augmented with environmental effects such as seat motion, wind, rain, fog, lights, and scents along with the standard video and audio. My mom was raving about it when she traveled a year ago telling me the seats moved. So, I figured Ant Man was a great film to try out in 4DX. The movie itself was fun and exciting.
The Ant Man costume wasn’t that bad at all, which I actually thought it was pretty cool on how effective and multi-functioning his suit was during the film. Paul Rudd did an amazing job as the wise cracking cat burglar turned super hero, who loves his adorable daughter. He is willing to do anything to be with her, so he was to help out Michael Douglas character by stealing another version of the Ant Man costume because it would do more harm than good. Evangeline Lilly plays Michael Douglas’s daughter, which I have been a big fan of hers ever since Lost and lately for The Hobbit. She is so hot and she’s an amazing actress, which she was the one of the reasons why like the movie, but of course the 4DX experience totally put me over the top.
The prices for a 4DX movie is more expensive than your regular movie tickets. Two adults tickets for 4DX came out to close to $50 dollars, along with parking and concession snacks, it comes out to a very taxing day at the movies. But it was worth every dime because it felt like was watching a movie on a rollercoaster. The seats moved along with the action of the movie as water sprinkled on you anytime it was involved, plus you get a light and smoke show on top of the movie.
I thought the 4DX was amazing but is too expensive for any regular movie watching experience. It’s great if you have the money to splurge on expensive movie tickets but I think the 4DX is worth the money for special occasions. I would recommend watching Ant Man because it’s a fun family oriented movie and if you have the dough check it out in 4DX because it’s totally worth the expensive prices.
