| A below average unnecessary remake
So this film has been talked about allot recently but I have now seen the new Ghostbusters film and yeah this film isn't very good. The premise sees four women attempt to stop new York from being taken over by ghosts. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen wigg, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones are the Ghostbusters and there all alright in this film. I thought they had decent chemistry together and were sometimes funny. Its just I didn't really care about them as individual characters and I didn't think anyone stood out enough to truly care. Chris hemsworth plays Kevin there assistant and he does a good job as the funny bumbling idiot that works well with the girls. Unfortunately, though the villain is just very cliché and over the top making him completely useless and pointless to the plot of this film. The story in the film is incredibly simple and messy. It just has nothing to it, the characters don't develop at all and the main villain plot doesn't make entire sense. The script has some funny dialogue in it, it just never got me truly laughing too much. Also the dramatic moments all feel forced in the film. The style has some cool action scenes with some decent cgi ghosts involved. However, the film is overly long and the pacing of this film is a bit all over the place. Overall I don't think this film is as bad as everyone expected but it isn't worth seeing especially if you are a fan of the material.
