Despite all the controversy surrounding Writer/Director Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, I found it mostly a lot of fun.  Co-Writer Katie Dippold’s contribution to the banter of the female team of ghost hunters and Melissa McCarthy’s exhuberance moved the story along briskly and joyfully.
Surprisingly, however, is the weakness of the climactic battle to save New York.  The turn to cinematic effects and awkward staging of the action actually stalls the energy that had been building rather than enhances it.
Instead of a dynamic experience, this was simply a pleasant diversion. And that is not the fault of McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.

I give Ghostbusters a 3.4 out of 5.
