R.I.P.D may look like something that you've seen before (and you kind of have) but with deft direction, the primal allure of redemption and lightning pace; prepare for a surprisingly entertaining ride.

It was nice to watch a movie that had no delusions of grandeur, a simple flick that both plays to its strengths and makes light of its own weaknesses.

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.

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

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

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.

A good action adventure with some comedy thrown in, and Mary Louise Parker steals the show

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

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

You won't see it popping up on any best-of lists, but it is an adequate 96-minute time-waster.

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

It's the sort of movie that, if the air conditioning is working and the popcorn is handy, can provide a nice way to beat the heat.

Please, please don't see it. Value your time more than I did.

What we are left with is a mildly entertaining, utterly harmless mid-summer blockbuster that marks another misstep in the career of Ryan Reynolds.

Bake a 'Men In Black' pie; throw in some 'Ghostbusters,' 'This Is the End,' 'True Grit,' and 'Weeds,' drain the fun out, and you get the half-baked, derivative 'R.I.P.D.'

The kind of terrible that doesn't wash out, destined to be remembered among the pantheon of big budget bombs like "The Adventures Of Pluto Nash" and "Cutthroat Island."

January 22, 2014
It's not a buddy-cop movie, nor is it an action movie. It's just one vaguely funny joke told for 98 minutes.
October 30, 2013
It's a predictable and cliché filled soap opera mess played straight with an afterlife gimmick.

a film so preoccupied with style, (the stars) wander around the film without anything of note to do

Bridges may be doing this for the pay cheque but at least he seems determined to give value for money.
