R.I.P.D. Reviews

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.

Too bad director Robert Schwentke ("RED") and the writing team handling the 3-D screen adaptation don't hold up their end, failing to do much with a premise that felt like it could rate with, say, "Men in Black."

Mr. Bridges is almost always fun to watch, but even his squinting and Slim Pickens-style whooping can't make the time pass faster.

A half-hour into the film, and it feels like the eighth day of jury duty.

With its low-stakes chase scenes, obvious-from-the-get-go villains and nonsensical plotting, this feels more like a 96-minute-long episode of Scooby-Doo that's been laboriously translated into another language and then back into English.

R.I.P.D. is a dud that squanders a decent cast and succeeds neither as the comedy nor the action film it purports to be.

Even though the once-and-forever Dude abides by the rules of the game, he can't raise the pulse on this bomb.

Despite its flaws, "R.I.P.D." is a fairly entertaining and frequently funny movie.

The film is a visual mess, with cheap-looking effects hampered even further by crummy and unconvincing 3-D.

Benefits from a hilariously free-associative performance by Jeff Bridges.

The results feel rote and trite, like a mid-1980s NBC pilot designed to take the 9:00 hour between Misfits of Science and Manimal.

... the execution is pretty lively, irreverent, visually engaging, and every now and then almost actually witty.

It's not funny. It's not exciting. It's not engaging. It's a waste of time and money. Having seen it, I can understand why it was hidden from critics. The disappointment is that it wasn't hidden from everyone else as well.

Perhaps there was a clever germ of an idea here, but the five credited writers didn't develop characters, scenarios or rules in this sci-fi world well enough to engage the audience.

As a major undertaking with clear sequel ambitions, there's just not enough new and exciting here to cut it; when the brief 96-minute running time is one of its two or three only virtues, you know you're in trouble.

Every movie coming out this year but "R.I.P.D." should pause for a big sigh of relief: The possibility of any of them being called the worst cinematic effort of 2013 has, as of today, just about disappeared.
