Ghostbusters 2Ghostbusters is a reboot to the original 1984 horror comedy movie where a group of men have the task of exterminating ghosts in New York City. This time around, the ghost fighters are 4 women, three scientists and a sidekick.

This is a very funny new take on a classic movie; it is not a sequel but a reboot to the original. The story and plot is simple, straight forward and not complicated. Like the original, the lady Ghostbusters were not taken seriously until the city needed their help with ghosts who are being brought from the “other side” by somebody who has an ax to grind with society.Ghostbusters 5

The women Ghostbusters are funny with great chemistry but Kate McKinnon stole the show which I think made the movie enjoyable to watch and Chris Hemsworth seemed to enjoy himself. Melissa McCarthy is also funny minus her trademark brand of crude comedy. There were cameo roles from the original movie with Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver.

There were references to the original but very subtle and not overwhelming. Overall, the movie is funny, well written and with great chemistry among the cast. Being a comedy, the plot is not complex and the pacing is fast and no dull moment and they kept the movie loyal to the original.

    Les effets spéciaux sont vraiment superbes. Je suis un fan de la Ghostbuster originale et de voir ce film était un regard neuf sur l’original que c’est ce qu’il est un tout nouveau regard sur le Ghostbuster. Je l’ai fait comme ce film et je pense que son magnifique film à regarder aussi longtemps que vous avez un esprit ouvert lorsque le regarder et ne pas penser trop sur les originaux.

    Je l’ai aimé. Les filles étaient vraiment drôle spécialement Kristen Wiig, et Leslie Jones était hilarant. Vraiment un film agréable à regarder avec des dames drôles. Les effets spéciaux un peu fait le film mal paraître et je trouve Kate McKinnon un peu exagéré mais dans l’ensemble le film était super et je rit beaucoup.
