The Dissolve

By Nathan Rabin
A film that grows less compelling and original by the minute, R.I.P.D. serves due notice that the mismatched-buddy-cop movie is wearing out...

Slant Magazine

R.I.P.D. devotes far more energy to concept than execution, leaving most of the promising aspects high and dry.

The worst comic book adaptation since “Jonah Hex.”

There is less eye candy than you would expect, and it’s underwhelming.

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...

In R.I.P.D., we have a legitimate train wreck of a motion picture: a film that doesn't work on any level. It's not funny. It's not...

There is a legitimate film in here somewhere, buried deep beneath the rubble of its terrible script and editing.

It's an unpleasant way to pass a couple summer hours.

Mostly loud and graceless, despite some arresting hyperbolic visuals that deserve an action film of actual soul and purpose. It's simply...

It's nothing special. Which sort of makes it a loser all the way 'round. Expect a sad afterlife for it on cable.

R.I.P.D. is D.O.A

By MedRed
RIPD is Men in Black with a little Constantine thrown in. I had low expectations for this movie which were promptly justified in the 1st 15 minutes. It's fun, but not fun enough to see over the other...

RIPD is funny and clean

By lovingguyana
it's been a while since I have seen a movie so enjoyable, funny and clean, it was action packed and funny yet you could take your kid to see it. if you like Ghost, you'll like this; if you like Kevin...


By kut005
This movie should RIP. In a totally different class(Lower) then the Men in Black series. Not that funny, Jeff Bridges accent was annoying, poor character development, stupid premise....

In the same genre as Men in Black

By rocket_movie
Extremely clever. Lots of big laughs. fast action, and not so terribly predictable that you are yawning at the end. Strangely enough it's not Ryan Reynolds who is the heart throb in this film, it's...

Very Entertaining! The 3d Effect certainly made it worth seeing this in the theater. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for some laughs and action....

A lot of fun!

My husband, and sister and I laughed and really enjoyed this movie. The effects were good, Jeff Bridges was hilarious, and it was a surprise to see Kevin Bacon in the role of a villain. Yes, it is...

Took my grandsons to see this movie and they had a blast. I actually enjoyed the craziness of the characters in the movie. Its nice to have a little comedy and a clean movie to take children to...

RIPD... well.... OK

By tonyweiler
As I feared, this was another movie where the best scenes are in the previews. And as with some others, scenes in the previews where not all taken from the actual movie, like the guy with all the...

ummmmm.. a little to familiar

By negralinda201
The movie was to familiar to other movies that have been created. Like men in black and i. This was more like a cheese movie. It had its funny moments. It was okay. Your money is worth saving and...

Better than I thought it would be.

By docopenhaver
After all the "It's another blockbuster that's bombing!" noise, I didn't have much hope for this. Turned out to be a very good comic book adaptation. Even Ryan Reynolds was tolerable. Humor,...
