Action, Comedy, Sci-Fi

Director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today.

The critical consensus

An effectively spooky opening gives way to a film that’s fun, funny and full of energy. It’s almost as if it never mattered that the four main characters were women. Strange that.

Paul Feig answers the sceptics in style with this funny and touching reboot.

2016’s Ghostbusters are triumphant. They are hilarious. They are smart. They are utterly dorky. They are totally badass.

****(*)Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent, 11/07/2016

Haters will have to work hard to be horrified by Paul Feig’s deft thrills-chills-and-giggles remake, though it’s not McCarthy’s finest hour.

All the noise and commotion can’t hide the ghoulish inanity at the heart of the movie.

Paul Feig’s reboot pays tribute to the 80s blockbuster with in-jokes and cameos – but it’s a brand new work, firing off top-quality zingers every 10 seconds.

The four of them together are endearing while Bill Murray has the best of the cameo roles on offer. This isn’t the greatest film of the summer but it could have been much worse.

The smart, funny cast may succeed in defeating the misogynistic nonsense surrounding this all-female re-boot of Ghostbusters, but ultimately the film itself isn’t able to deliver for its talent.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 16/07/2016

Despite a brilliant cast, this all-female reboot fails to deliver the gag power of the original. However, it’s hardly the disaster the trolls have been predicting.
