Ghostbusters II

Critics Consensus

Thanks to the cast, Ghostbusters 2 is reasonably amusing, but it lacks the charm, wit, and energy of its predecessor.

Audience Reviews for Ghostbusters 2

    Nice follow-up to the 1984 classic!

    "GhostBusters 2" is a okay Sci-Fi movie. "GhostBusters 2" has good acting from "Bill Murray" and "Sigourney Weaver". This movie has an okay plot to it some scenes are funny and other scenes are just dumb, e.g. "Statue of Liberty" walking. The Special effects in this movie are pretty good, in my opinion better than the previous film.The soundtrack is okay, nothing amazing. I give "GhostBusters 2" a 6.5/10.

    Ghostbusters 2 tries to recreate the same magic that the original had, but falls short. The story takes an unconventional but interesting turn, yet still tries to repeat all of the same notes from the first film. Murray, Aykroyd, and Ramis deliver solid performances again, but the whole film comes off as a retread of the first one. The plot's just not as tight this time, and as a result it feels a little sloppy and rushed. Still, Ghostbusters 2 is a fun and action-packed film that delivers a lot of laughs.

    There are rare moments that are reminiscent of the first film, but otherwise Ghostbusters 2 falls into the gimmickry, that though worked in the first film, becomes repetitive and unoriginal in the second film. The "5 years later" concept never worked so well and the side jobs the 'Busters have taken on make for hilarious portions of the film, but regardless, the film becomes just another chapter in their one-and-done paranormal activities.
