Bored spirits leave hell for earth.
18 February 2005 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

The Chinese Ghostbuster (1994) is an average effort from the team of Wu Ma and the late Lam Ching-ying. Wu Ma stars as a ghost who's searching for the perfect husband for his daughter. In order to get her married, the two decide to leave the spirit plain and head for the land of the living. To their surprise the world had drastically changed since they've last visited. The duo finds a likely candidate in a street hustler. The ghostly pair chase the poor guy until he seeks the help of a tao priest (Lam Ching-ying). Will the Tao priest send these wandering spirits back to hell or will the hustler join is ghostly bride forever?

The genre was getting tired and the two actors didn't seem to have their hearts in the right place. Wu Ma and Lam Ching-ying have played these roles so many times that they could have done them in their sleep. By seeing the finished product it looks like they did just that.

Recommended for genre fans.
