Ryan Reynolds is killed on a police bust and ends up in the R.I.P.D. with Jeff Bridges playing his character from True Grit. Their boss is Mary-Louise Parker who is terribly underused here and could have really added something to the movie. The back and forth between Reynolds and Bridges is great, but there's not much else beyond that. It's a standard buddy cop comedy (new guy comes in, gets paired with guy who only works alone, they screw something up get kicked off the force, fight, then they save the day). I didn't like the Deados, they just looked out of place and those chases weren't all that interesting. There are some funny gags revolving their avatars (Bridges is a model, Reynolds is an old Asian man). It does turn into a Roland Emmerich disaster movie by the end. The CGI outside of the final action bit is mostly bad, except for the parts where everything is frozen and Reynolds is walking around.
It's not a terrible movie, but it could have been so much more. It does the bare minimum of the genre that's been done a million times and what it does bring to the table with the deados is pretty bad. Should have been better.
