Two weeks ago I saw the movie “Ghostbusters: Legacy” at the cinema; it is the third official chapter of the saga composed of Ghostbusters – Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II (1989) directed by Jason Reitman, son of Ivan Reitman who had directed the first two.
The film is dedicated to Harold Ramis who played Egon Spengler in the first two films of the series, who died in 2014.
The main actors are: Mckenna Grace (Phoebe) Logan Kim (Podcast) Finn Wolfhard (Trevor) Paul Rudd (Mr. Grooberson).
Jason Reitman, the director of Ghostbusters, tries to do the miracle: he wants to move fans of the franchise, in fact in the first part of the film all the equipment of the first films of the saga is found, and he also wants to make the new generations discover the Ghostbusters, no longer with the old actors but with others, younger, better telling the birth of the Ghostbusters.
The film is a fun fantasy comedy, but at the same time engaging and thrilling, in fact, it leaves you attached to the screen until the last few scenes. There aren’t many stunts in the film but there are some amazing special effects that blow your mind.
In short, the film tells the story of a mother and her two children who, after moving to a small town, begin to discover their connection with the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy left by their grandfather.
I liked the film a lot, although I think they could add new ghosts with different powers than the old ones. In fact, I hope that if there is a sequel to Legacy they will add new things, more powerful weapons, different ghost powers… in order to make this saga full of new twists and exciting adventures.
