Consensus: Ghostbusters does an impressive job of standing on its own as a freewheeling, marvelously cast supernatural comedy -- even if it can't help but pale somewhat in comparison with the classic original.

Paul Feig's "Ghostbusters" reboot contains some humor that works and a good deal of charm and nostalgic value, but it still ends up being a mostly-forgettable outing thanks to a lot of jokes that miss and an unremarkable story.

Not as bad as many have said but it's not this summer's best movie. Despite that, this new version will free us from the ghosts of boredom. [Full review in Spanish]

This is a mediocre horror/comedy that deserves neither high praise nor disparagement.

The screenplay is smart and funny, and the cast is flat-out hilarious.
