Passed 37 years since the movie of The Ghostbusters She burst onto the screen to pierce the hearts of children and adults who remember her fondly to this day. And is that the way are director Ivan Reitman and its cast led by Bill Murray He knew how to combine the comedy with science fiction, not only conquered viewers but also industry professionals who recognized her with two Oscars and three Golden Globes. It would seem that what happened in 1984 It was in the past, but the truth is that it is more alive than ever.
In this sense, it arrives Ghostbusters: The Legacy, a film directed by Jason Reitman -Son of the original director- who takes up those elements presented years ago to give them a new look without losing the nostalgia as the main attraction. And here is the first challenge of the film: present a compelling story for those fans who know all the details of the Ghostbusters, at the same time that they must involve a new generation of viewers in the plot.
They definitely get it. The new cast led by Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Paul Rudd, Logan Kim and Celeste O’Connor manages to develop the story by exciting even those who have not experienced the launch of previous films in the first person. On this occasion, they narrate the moment in which a single mother with a few financial problems to solve, must move with her two children to a small town where her grandfather’s old house awaits them.
That’s not all, because whoever they present as the recently deceased man is none other than the Doctor Egon Spengler, one of the ghostbusters originals that left a secret legacy for anyone who can decipher it. And his grandchildren, Phoebe y Trevor, they will be more than attracted to this mission that has them as protagonists. Mckenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard are responsible for interpreting those children – or rather adolescents – very different from each other but, at the same time, united as few. Both represent the best actors of his generation and they exhibit a remarkable performance throughout the duration of the film.
For their part, Paul Rudd and Carrie Coon personify Callie Spengler and Professor Grooberson. It is true that both fulfill their role correctly and give with their roles the comedy that obviously needs Ghostbusters. However, the true charm is held by the youngest, accompanied by a fun Logan Kim in the shoes of Podcast, a child fanatic of paranormal stories.
From start to finish, this new installment of the original universe of Ghostbusters, manages to keep attention with a story entertaining that fulfills its objective by prioritizing comedy, special effects and the eighties nostalgia that marks its presence in each of the scenes. And, as if that were not enough, with an ending and a scene post credits that will complete the tribute to the ghostbusters that marked a before and after with Ivan Reitman years ago.
