It could have been so much better...
30 June 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Initially I must admit that I had expected a tad more from "Ghost Squad" (aka "Gôsuto sukuwaddo") than what I ended up watching on the screen.

With that being said, don't get me wrong. I am not saying that "Ghost Squad" is a bad movie. It was entertaining enough for what it was, but it wasn't a particularly outstanding movie in the Japanese cinema.

The characters in the movie were for the most parts actually funny enough, but they weren't really given enough space to unfold themselves, given the limitations of the script and storyline.

As for the acting in the movie, well it was adequate. Especially when taking into consideration the type of movie that "Ghost Squad" is. Don't expect any outstanding award-winning performances here, though.

"Ghost Squad" is crammed with odd humor and weird effects, that is often seen in Japanese movies of this type. And it can be somewhat of an acquired taste, either you like it or you don't. Luckily I do like it.

However, there was just something missing from "Ghost Squad" to lift it up and out of the mediocre gutter. I can't really put my finger on what it was, but there was just something crucial missing from this movie. And as such, my rating of "Ghost Squad" lands on a very bland five out of ten stars.

"Ghost Squad" doesn't really have the contents to support a second viewing.
