I watched this straight after the first one. It was just as good as the first film. I enjoyed it.
Who you gonna snore?
Ghostbusters II Is directed by Ivan Reitman and stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis & Ernie Hudson. Ramis & Aykroyd c-wrote the screenplay and it’s a sequel to the hugely successful Ghostbusters from 1984. Plot follows on from the first film but five years later and sees the Ghostbusters disbanded after being derided as frauds and handed a bill for the damages incurred as they saved the world! However, a new supernatural threat is bubbling down in the sewers of New York and now more than ever the Ghostbusters are back in vogue.
It was probably asking too much for this sequel to be as sparkling as the first film. More so when one considers that there was a 5 year gap in between and a new decade was soon to arrive that firmly had no place for 80s nostalgia. Oh Ghostbusters 2 was a success, very much so, but after the rush of fans wanting some more from the kooky parapsychologists had died down, the feedback was very mixed from fans and critics alike. Understandably so since everything about this sequel is tired. The characters look bored and lack the expresso timing that was once evident, especially Murray who is badly underused here, and more troubling is that his Venkman, the best thing about the original film, is reduced to being a normal type bloke. That’s criminal, because the spirited stuff falls to Aykroyd and co and tho they be solid pros, they ain’t got Murray’s wit and mannerisms.
The story too is weak. Featuring a seventeenth century tyrant and the inevitable rise of spooks unbound. Thankfully, tho, the effects are at least of the high and gloopy standard set first time around. And there’s some tight gags in there for the knowing Ghostbuster ear. But repetition hangs heavy throughout, Ramis & Aykroyd seemingly not grasping that what worked in 84 will not totally transfer well to a new crowd who are now older and wiser. There’s also the distinct feeling that this film is more about a cast get together to make some easy cash than enticing in a whole new audience. Peter MacNicol is a welcome introduction to proceedings as Janosz Poha, while more of “slimer” (who is now real cool) is never a bad thing. But the magic is gone and Ghostbusters 2 just comes off as shallow and dangerously close to soiling our love of the first picture. 4/10
Followed the first one too much.
This sequel to the successful movie Ghostbusters was itself, pretty successful. In the end though it did not do as well and just seemed a little flat. The story of the slime was pretty good and it was funny seeing them do kid’s birthday parties (though I doubt a kid at that time would have watched He-man cartoons). In the end this movie suffers from the fact that it follows the basic structure of the first movie so there is nothing really different about it. You have them investigating something, you have them dispatching a ghost, then you have the musical interval, then you have them locked up (in a loony bin this time), then you have a building taken over by the head ghost, and finally you have a giant thing walking through New York. It just seems to me that with ghosts and other things, you could come up with a totally original and funny script without having to follow what worked in the previous chapter. It is a shame too, that another Ghostbusters will probably never be made. It would be interesting to see it, considering all the advancements in special effects.
About As Enticing As A Snot Rag.
Ghostbusters 2 (1989): Dir: Ivan Reitman / Cast: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis: Sequel that cannot claim the success or match the original film’s uniqueness. Picking up where the original film left off, the boys with the proton packs are being sued for city damages and are reduced to making appearances at birthday parties for children. A purple slime of physical evil forms underneath the city. A figure in a painting attempts to draw power and emerge but he needs a child sacrifice and Sigourney Weaver’s child seems like the perfect target. This obviously puts the Ghostbusters back in business again. Basically a recycling of the first film only instead of a giant Stay Puff Marshmallow Man we are given a walking Statue of Liberty. Director Ivan Reitman returns and does what he can with special effects to boot. He obviously isn’t matching previous success with Ghostbusters or with other superb Reitman films such as Stripes or Twins. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis recite what they previously made great in the first film, and Sigourney Weaver returns once again with her kid fixated upon by a demon in a painting. Rick Moranis is also coasting on fumes here as well. The special effects can be complimented but they do not save the film, which is basically a pointless sequel that sinks like the slime in the sewer. Score: 2 / 10
