I like Paul Feig’s work (Freaks and Geeks is fantastic, Spy is hilarious, and I’ve generally liked his work apart from those two, although to not to the same extent), and I liked the first Ghostbusters film a lot, so I expected to like this one. Indeed, it was a pretty funny film. Not nearly as funny as Spy, as original as the original Ghostbusters film, or as charming as that original film, but still two hours well spent.
Chris Hemsworth, Kate McKinnon, the visuals of the ghosts, and some of the improv-y dialogue scenes were the highlights of the film. The villain, most of the actual plot, the action scenes, and some of the improv-y dialogue scenes were the low points of the film. Even lower than that was the more crass humour, something really not to my taste.
Not an especially memorable film, but far from a terrible one. I give it two and a half wontons, and a proton pack.
