We found them all more than capable of taking on the action as well as the comedy. It just could have been put together and paced better, but it's still fun, especially if you see it with a big audience.
The Ghostbusters are back, and while they may not look the way some "fans" would like, Paul Feig has assembled a terrific new cast with the potential to launch a franchise well worth investing your time and money in.
Ghostbusters isn't as good a movie as the original, but there's no shame in failing to reach the level of a classic. It's still a fun and funny film with plenty going for it particularly a wildly talented cast that is pretty obviously having a ball.
