Biggest takeaways from Ghost Team:

  • Expectations going into this movie were lower than low. It has a bunch of recognizable faces but the premise and trailer made me know it was going to be background viewing.
  • This may seem mean, but what happened to Jon Heder? This may be the first movie I have seen him in since Blades Of Glory (2007)? He plays Louis, the man in charge of this rag tag group. He is perfectly fine in this movie, but no means the highlight.
  • The best character in the movie is its mopiest, Stan. Played by David Krumholtz, he has some of the best depressingly funny lines of the movie.
  • Paul W. Downs plays the most annoying character of Ghost Team. The tech guy Zak deserves everything bad that happens to him. Just rude.
  • For a low budget movie with not much of anything to look into, Ghost Team appeased me as background noise. Picked my head up and watched diligently for minutes at a time. It is not good by any meas, but for what its floor is, I’d say it does a little skip above that.
