| Unfunny Destruction of the 1984 Cult-Comedy
"Ghostbusters" (2016) is one of the worst remakes ever made and an unfunny destruction of the 1984 cult-comedy. This female version is terrible with awful performances of the four humorless overrated lead actresses Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones that might work for stand-ups for American audiences, but have no capability to lead a worldwide blockbuster. Chris Hemsworth is not a bad actor and it is hard to understand why he accepted to perform the role of Kevin. Money probably (or certainly). Seth Rogen would be much more appropriate for this ridiculous role. The curriculum (or filmography) of the director and writer Paul Feig is enough to show who he is. The story is an atrocious combination of "Ghostbusters" and "Godzilla" with an absolutely annoying soundtrack. The only thing worthwhile are the state-of-art special effects. The cameo of countless people such as Sigourney Weaver, Andy Garcia, Ed Begley Jr., Charles Dance, Bill Murray, Ozzy Osbourne, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Elizabeth Perkins among others is a poor attempt of giving the fake status of cult to this garbage. Indeed a disrespect to the fans of the 1984 film. My vote is three.
