I went into this movie wanting to hate it, because I wasn’t very happy about the way the previous one (which I really enjoyed) was treated. And they did gloss over it in this one, but I know the makers of both movies have been all lovey-dovey to each other on the socials, so I’m happy to let it go.
Which is a relief, because I loved this film. It was funny, the kids were great, Paul Rudd was doing what he does best, and the story worked - the nostalgia was there, and of course the end was pretty weepy. A great movie and it feels like they’ve left it open to more, so perhaps the Ghostbusters Cinematic Universe is on its way.
Rating: 5 / 5
