Every bit the lifeless blockbuster that its name suggests.

The ingredients are all here, but this mash-up of Ghost with Men in Black is a painful misfire, neither funny nor engaging on any level.

A decent amount of fun, thanks to some amusing gags, a handful of nice ideas and a pair of enjoyable comic performances from Reynolds and Bridges.

A bloated blockbuster that squanders a promising premise in favour of soulless set-pieces and ejaculatory explosions of CGI.

You won't die laughing...but it's a pleasant enough diversion.

Confusing and uninspired rather than completely inept, it's still likely to be swiftly struck from the résumés of all involved.

FILMINK (Australia)

The brilliant Jeff Bridges is pretty much the whole show in this lazily enjoyable tale of afterlife cops doing battle with ghostly ghouls.

Rampant CGI monsters, aggressive 3D and a fine cast - especially a likeably grizzly Jeff Bridges - still can't bring this ho-hum Men In Black redux to life.

It's hard to think of a lazier, less-ambitious blockbuster in recent memory.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The movie might best be enjoyed by kids, although parents won't appreciate the 'comic' moment when the deceased Roy reports that the coyote that ate his carcass 'made love' to his skull.

I watched this movie with three chatty strangers on [a] Thursday night in an otherwise empty theater. Universal couldn't say "no." Looks like that's our job now.

Forgiving viewers may find enjoyment in R.I.P.D. but the film is so choppy and half-baked that living, thinking, moviegoers should let this one rest in peace.

It's a paint-by-numbers approach in which the film's comedy and drama both fall flat.

Funeral services are already under way at the nation's multiplexes, so the easily entertained might want to pay their respects before this one gets buried by newer releases.

Bridges essentially recycles his Rooster Cogburn mannerisms here - but in a movie whose action sequences steal from "The Matrix" and "Ghostbusters," who's going to notice?

The pleasures are only sporadic. R.I.P.D. simply can't overcome its flaws or the fact that it too closely resembles the far superior Men in Black.

This spends little time on exposition and doesn't go in for any false pathos; compared with most recent comic-book movies, this is lean, unpretentious filmmaking--and to my taste, a lot more fun for it.

Images of Jeff Bridges enjoying himself are almost enough to make a movie work. "R.I.P.D." does its best to stop him dead in his tracks.
