(2013) R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department)
SCIENCE-FICTION ACTION COMEDY
The theme is similar to the "Men In Black" movies except that we can't even understand what Jeff Bridges is talking about half the time as he's talking like there's something in his mouth. During a routine operation, Boston cop, Nick (Ryan Reynolds) gets shot by his partner of 5 years, Hayes (Kevin Bacon) since he refuses to be crooked regarding some gold. Nick's spirit then gets sucked up by some vortex, landing him on front of Proctor (Mary-Louise Parker) who has the authority to give specific people to become R.I.P.D. under new identities who's partnered with RIPD veteran, Roy(Jeff Bridges) whose job is to show him the ropes. His main objective is to eliminate alien beings disguised as human beings called "Deados" and to retrieve any gold bullions they're hiding around from the city of Boston.
If this was somehow connected to the "Men In Black" movies then I'll have to say it would probably be the worst one of the lot, since it's stryline and chemistry is overshadowed by clichés, stupidity, and special effects.
