GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE is an entertaining but mostly average reboot. The acting is ok — the kids do an excellent job and are central to the story. The pacing is good and the humour entertaining. There are some fun action sequences, and the special effects are exactly what you’d expect in a movie like this. If you’re a Ghostbusters fan, you’ll have an enjoyable time — and, with a bit of parental guidance, I suspect the kids will too. I’d recommend GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE for kids 10+.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

  • LIMBO (2020) ** – interminably long and unbearably boring.
  • SCREAM (2022) **½ – popcorny fun.
