The events in this remake take place 27 years after Ghostbusters 2, in what we presume is an alternate New York City. Instead of four males, we get four female Ghostbusters. The humor, much like the characters, is sometimes so dumb it is embarrassing. Mind you, this is the film’s biggest flaw. Everything, here, is bigger and more colorful than what we are used to and it feels great!
All actors deserve a round of applause for keeping up with a script that is both dialogue and action heavy. We constantly alternate between humor, slapstick comedy, light horror and action. In the middle of all this are a bunch of cameos present to please the faithful fans. Like its predecessors, the film is accessible to all audiences, given they can take a couple of jump scares and fart jokes.
The first half will make you laugh and the second one will have your heart pumping. The last act is incredibly satisfying, high on emotions and big on special effects. It makes all the character exposition worthwhile. This remake is both an ode to the classic Ghostbusters films and a long overdue upgrade with digital effects instead of practical ones. The new generation of moviegoers will love it!
