Ghostbusters 2016 movie review

16 July 2016

Many have their say about the new reboot Ghostbusters movie and here is my review of the movie after I catch it as I think it will be fair to make any statement without watching.

To begin with, some would say it is not fair to compare this with the old version but if they do not want people to compare, they should give it another name rather than using the same name, making reference of the old version and trying so hard to get all the older actors to make cameo.

No I didn't care to watch in 3D.

SPOILER Alert but since you not going to watch who cares right?

The Characters
Being a fair person that I am, I have to give credit where credit is due. All 4 of the actress are funny and it entertained me with their on screen humour.

Now with pleasantry out of the way, let me be frank. Now among 4 of them, 1 or 2 of them trying to play a scientist and for that it really hard for me to buy that idea because on the screen time , it does not come across to me they are smart or intelligent as a scientist. As for the engineer inventor, it did make me believe she can create those gadgets. Good job!

She is my favourite in the movie. 

I don't really get it why they need the character of Chris the beefcake to be in the movie. Is it to bring across the point that we use sexy woman and now replace by Hot guy like Thor. If that is the point, then point taken. However Chris did steal the screen time and attention no doubt especially when he is dancing.

Plot and screenplay
Now remember they use the same logo and tagline but that tag line never really come cross in the movie. It is just like using the same tag line and logo to get the fan to come in? Even the tagline doesn't make sense as the original Ghostbusters they did a advertisement of putting their number to call them and thus "Who you gonna call" make sense

Let's start from the beginning where someone just see the ghost, that very much duplicate the original ghostbusters screenplay which for a momment I thought it was good.  Then one by one you will see reference of the Ghostbusters actor appearing to the Cameo and it got people to be excited.

Now talking about Cameo it was not only the original actor but also the Ghost as well such as Marshmallow man, slimmer and the ghost that got electrocuted.

Unlike the original story where the Ghost appearance was a spiritual planning, this is actually a human planning to open a portal and rule human race. Instead of trying to be original, the ending was a giant Ghost which was the ghost form of the logo. That was a rip off I feel and have no originality.

Yes many fans want to bust you

Gadgets and Ecto-1
Now the Gadgets I have to say is cooler than before which is a good thing and all thanks to her.

Most of the fighting scene you will see the gadgets get into play and it is entertaining.

Final verdict 
So all in all is the movie entertaining? Yes the movie is entertaining if it is not called the Ghostbusters as in the movie even the girls do not really like that name as they originally only want to study Ghost and not solve people haunting issue.


Those original characters cameo at that time make me excited but they don't do much part in the movie and after the movie as I write this review, I asked myself why do they want to do that at all. I mean is it rather meaningless. I would rather these girls learned from the original Ghostbusters and take over the job from there.

Seriously how many girls would want to take a job like wearing overall, work in a dirty environment like slim and carry heavy equipment? Plus these group does not really seems to want to earn money and have endless supplies to build high end gadgets and remodel their car. Not to mention hire a Hot man as a vase sitting in the office to have some eye candy.

So should Ghostbusters fan watched this movie? It is entertaining (thanks to the actress to deliver the humour)  but after watching this movie, you will not remember this movie as related to the Ghostbusters because the story was very much like the original and it is not really scary as it should be. We know there will be a continuation like it or not because they are here to make money. So even if you watch it or not may not make a difference but it is just a waste that they want to touch the original and do a reboot because it was not necessary at all. Ghostbusters exist in the 80s era and that is that.

Please do an original actor for the Ghostbusters since some of them are still alive instead SONY.
