Ghost Ship was actually better than I expected, with an opening that beats-out the rest of the film. Another example of this formula can be found in another slightly better film, "Event Horizon", which is on a 'space-ship' rather than a regular one.
An ocean-liner disappears many years ago, only to be discovered again inhabited by ghostly beings. There are some parts better than others, with some good old/new fashion jumps. That's what really counts nowaday's, I suppose. But, there were many times when I was left scratching my head, "Where's Gabriel Byrne?" The old "Forget about the character's until the plot (did I just use the 'p' word as a descriptive?) needs them to turn up." On the other hand, there are quite a few surprises as far as the "why's and where's", but once you know this would you want to watch it again? Describing the acting as GOOD, would be devulged as the same GOOD as Samuel L. Jackson, Dustin Hoffman, and Sharon Stone in (the letdown in my life-creation of my favorite book) Sphere. If you Loved Ghost Ship, I can understand why.
But for me: A good one to watch once. Rent her. Fin'
