Ghostbusters (2016)

Greeted with outright hostility even before its premiere, this reboot of the 1984 comedy classic is a solid and well-crafted gem that benefits from the chemistry among the cast, who are treated well by a balanced script that pays homage to the original without ever becoming a facsimile of it. Its four leading stars, along with a spirited, game Chris Hemsworth and a host of crowd-pleasing cameos, are perfectly suited to the material and the movie itself is expertly paced, wasting no time yet never feeling rushed, on the way to a fun climax that feels like a dream come true for fans of the original.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
