Ghostbusters: Answer The Call is fun for the whole family!
I am telling you right now to go and buy the new Ghostbusters movie and watch it! It is such a funny, thrilling ride and the special effects are phenomenal!
To be honest, I was a little apprehensive to watch the newest addition is the Ghostbusters legacy. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Were they going to try to redo the first Ghostbusters? What direction were they going to take!? On top of the millions of questions I had, I had heard A LOT of bad reviews. Needless to say, I was nervous.
First off, I want you to know that Ghostbusters: Answer The Call is its own movie. It was not, in any way trying to redo the first Ghostbusters. It wasn’t trying to disrespect the original movies in any way. In fact, if you play close attention it pays homage to the original Ghostbusters crew! I give it big kudos for that!
The stars of this movie are: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. Let me start by saying what an excellent cast! These women (and guy) were great together. I was very curious as to how Melissa McCarthy was going to be. Not because she isn’t funny, but because she can sometimes be over the top vulgar for me. However, she was nowhere near vulgar in this movie! She was very clean, and very very funny!
In fact, the whole movie was pretty clean which I was very happy to see. Kristen Wiig was her normal hilarious self, Kate McKinnon was amazing as crazy genius Holtzmann, and Leslie Jones really brought her A game. The person who stole the movie for me though, was Chris Hemsworth. Thor himself. He was so incredibly goofy and funny in this movie! It was so refreshing to see him play something other than the tough macho man.
On top of a great cast, the special effects in this movie were awesome! I don’t want to say too much for those of you that haven’t seen it, but the ghosts were very incredible, and the colors were so vibrant!
Please do yourself a favor and watch this movie! Do not listen to all those nay sayers out there! Just because the ghostbusters are all women does not make this a horrible movie! (Yes, that is what people are saying.)
