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.”

Boston Globe

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

USA Today

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.

By Steven Boone
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...

Funny With Good Special Effects

By doldfield
I laughed, I gasped, and almost peed my pants because I didn't want to miss any of this movie. I have been looking forward to watching this it since I first saw a preview. This is not a deep movie...

Jeff Bridges never fails to deliver! All the actors in this were great!! This was a wonderfully entertaining movie and I would recommed it to any one!!! Go see for yourself! Enjoy!...

Well, my wife said she had read it would be funny so I told her to buy the senior tickets. Yes, there were a few "yaks" but, mostly, it was a HUGE (as Fucillo says) disappointment. It appeared to...

Don't listen, silly fun

By oldfanboy
This is a fun action picture that is kind of a mashup of Ghostbusters and Men In Black, with a wild west character thrown for good measure. Special effects are fun and the actors are good. A good...

RIPD Off In the Summer

By JAL46
This was a "different" type of escape film for the summer movie season. It reminded me of "Ghostbusters," but without the charm of that flick. I thought that Jeff Bridges was good and really...

Great show! Lots of fun.. good banter.. good humor

By brad211
I was not expecting a lot, but I had to see this show because of Ryan Reynolds (Ryan Reynolds and I have the same birth date and year). I was impressed. CGI could have been better. But over all it was...

Go see it, good for a few laughs. Not really for children unless you are prepared to answer some questions. Updated (more or less) take on Men in Black, which I liked....

Cute idea, good actors, "eh" content

By lkbedard
The movie was cute, but didn't have as many laughs as we'd hoped. It didn't have enough character development to be a drama either. Kind of a cross between Men In Black and Ghostbusters without the...

Too crude

By pattiwallace
I took our 13 year--old daughter based on the review that it was like Men In Black. It's not a family movie. Teenage boys are the intended audience. The actors did a good job....
