Jeff Bridges was great, and It's nice to see a female star who is played as just smart, attractive and solidly in control rather than a brainless bimbo.
Ryan Reynolds does a solid job too. Great special effects.
I'd say a cross between Dead Like me and Men In Black.
Don't listen to the critics, this film was a blast to watch.
Are you going to "learn" anything from it? No. Folks, it is a freaking MOVIE. Don't get caught up in the topic of the afterlife. Suspend your personal beliefs (Movie Going 101) and just enjoy this epic comic offering.
After meeting his own demise, a crooked Boston cop (Ryan Reynolds) is given a choice in the afterlife. Join the forces of the "Rest in Peace Department" and hunt down Deados or take his chances on Judgment Day. He partners up with a former Wild West lawman (Jeff Bridges) to hunt down criminal souls who refuse to vacate the Earth after death and face their eternal punishment. The two discover a plot to reverse the tunnel to the afterlife, allowing millions of corrupt and angry souls to invade the world.
Jeff Bridges pours himself into the role of an old-fashioned Wild West sheriff struggling with the modern excesses of the world. Ryan Reynolds looks like he's having a good time, as well. You can tell Kevin Bacon loves playing a bad guy and he shows it here.
The DVD version of "R.I.P.D." includes a few bonus features. There are deleted and alternate scenes accompanied by a gag reel. A featurette entitled "Transferring 'R.I.P.D.' - The Making of" takes viewers behind the scenes of the film.
"R.I.P.D." is rated PG-13 for violence, sci-fi/fantasy action, some sensuality, and language including sex references. I agree with all of the above warnings. Also, the monsters in the movie are rather cartoonish and not as scary as one might think. There's nothing too over-the-top visually to be found.Read more ›
