The film was terrible. Not worth watching. turned it off after 30 mins. Nothing like the first two ghostbusters films. Complete Rubbish

I don't see why all the hate? It's a fantastic movie!

I do not see why so many people hate this movie? No it doesn't really have anything to do with the original films, but as great as they are, they are a little too old to be running around and saving the world from ghosts. A new team is what was needed and to restart the franchise is the best way to go. The fact that they are all female made no difference to me at all. I couldn't care less if they are male, female, or penguins. The acting and comedy are what matters and the cast are all brilliant in their roles. I would say the only two characters not acted too well (in my opinion) is the villain, and Chris Hemsworth. The villain just came across a bit too unlikable and a good movie needs a good villain you can love to hate, and I'm afraid I just didn't connect with him. And Chris Hemsworth was just too stupid to be a real person. I know it's played up for the laughs and I know he is a really funny guy, but in this movie he just didn't seem to hit the right tone. But as a movie overall I love it!!! The four leads are some of the funniest people on the big screen and every scene is hilarious. Kristen wiig is the stand out start for me. This movie made me a fan of hers! Buy it, see it, reserve judgment and enjoy the ride. This really is a great movie.

Very entertaining and not as bad as folk say!

I’ll be honest here, this film wasn’t as bad as folk make it out to be. Yes I grew up with the original’s, I watched the cartoons every Saturday morning, but I’m not one of those purists.

The movie did for me and my family what I wanted it too, it entertained us, we giggled, the kids hid behind the sofa a few times, but we loved it.

There are a few cringe moments, but name one single movie that hasn’t a cringe moment somewhere in it?

You couldn't give this film away. Trust me; they tried.

Awful film, terrible acting, bad plot and character dynamics.

Apparently Kevin Feige thought all of the primary characters should be the "comic relief". This doesn't work at all and turns an already unfunny script into a diabolically tedious affair.

I'd rather amputate a perfectly good limb with a rusty spoon than watch this film ever again.

I love you GB!!

Fabulous film in EVERY way. Wasn’t given a fair chance as online trolls gave it too much negative publicity before it even opened. It’s fantastic - great humour, excellent visuals and a great movie for an evening’s entertainment. I’ve watched it several times now and I appreciate it more and more every time I watch it. Great performances by all the actresses/ actors and I thoroughly enjoyed the different characters and personalities of each female ghostbuster. The writers/ directors have received a huge response since this movie has come out on DVD from fans calling for a sequel. I think they will do it at some point. If they do I hope people go and watch it and give it a fair chance.

A couple of hours of my life ill never get back.

An awful film, a remake of the original with mirrored story lines and nothing new save for the all female cast. I struggle to understand what the point of the film is or what its trying to achieve, it barely managed "entertaining" and I struggled to keep concentrating on watching it. This is another of those reboots where you are far better off watching the original, which is a far better film and still holds up today.
