Ghosted Movie Review: Script Analysis

Somebody needs to do research and probably make a true crime docu-series out of the phenomenon where creators think of an idea, hire big names to headline it, and forget to shape anything good ahead. Isn’t this a crime enough? Well, Ghosted, an emotion that the audience is supposed to feel more than a movie title, is precisely the aforementioned phenomenon where the writing digs a grave for itself and jumps in it too.

Written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Chris McKenna, Ghosted as a premise makes for a very lucrative adventurous rom-com. A star-crossed couple is suddenly on a mission to save the world because unlikely the woman in the dynamic is a secret agent and actually the hero of the story. A week away from the release of Citadel, where Priyanka Chopra Jonas does a fabulous job at this trajectory, the Ana de Armas starrer does nothing to turn its lucrative concept into an engaging movie.

There are indeed some earnest moments in the movie where you want to root for this man who is convincing a sad woman to buy a plant that doesn’t need much of care, so she can be out of stress about its well-being. In a way, he is selling himself to woman he has fallen in love with at the first sight. But all the metaphors die post this point, and left is a forced movie that doesn’t commit to any single genre at all.

While the rom-com part of it flickered restlessly, all the hopes got stuck to the action part of it. But Ghosted does nothing to redeem itself because there is no effort in making the action any good. Rather they try to blend the complexities between the two and their situation in the most haphazard manner. One cannot even enjoy the genuinely funny moments because the surrounding overpowers and the balance goes for a toss.

Ghosted Movie Review: Star Performance

Both Chris Evans and Ana de Armas are convinced that this is a good script and act like this is some very content-driven movie which had a hidden message to it. Evans uses the tricks or two he has learned as the Captain America to charm the audience and he does too, but to what cost?

For Ana, Ghosted feels like a breather after giving it all to Blonde, a questionable movie but a splendid performance. Here she cake walks through whatever is given to her, and at one point, you can see even she is slowly giving up. But that doesn’t stop her from claiming her zone in the dynamic she shared with Chris. Wish they were back together in a way better film. Because the last time was Knives Out, and we know how brilliant that one was and these two in it were.

Ghosted Movie Review: Direction, Music

Dexter Fletcher is not even trying to redeem his product at any dipping point. Even an audience member not so sound with the cinema technique can say where the movie losses its grip, never to be found again. The visuals are indeed good, but what can they do if the intent flickers most of the time.

The music created a little to no impact for me and we definitely expect better.

Ghosted Movie Review: The Last Word

Chris Evans and Ana de Armas deserve much more than a movie that doesn’t even try to use their calibre and unique chemistry.
