    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 world well enough to engage the audience. show more

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

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    This is a second-rate special effects-dominated 3D entry that will join several prominent would-be blockbusters that need not be mentioned on the summer junk heap. show more

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

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

    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 exciting. It's not engaging. It's a waste of time and money. show more

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

    The worst comic book adaptation since “Jonah Hex.” show more

    Mostly loud and graceless, despite some arresting hyperbolic visuals that deserve an action film of actual soul and purpose. It's simply too generic at heart to justify director Schwentke's delirious, sidewinding, arcing, snap-zooming and whip-panning anti-gravity camerawork. show more

    For a movie that so strenuously rips off “Ghostbusters” and “Men in Black,” R.I.P.D. manages to come up with fresh new ways of being absolutely terrible. show more

    Pretty much Men in Black, but different people. Kinda lame but definitely watchable !

    I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was a total romp and it\'s always fun to watch the many faces of Jeff Bridges and the one face of Ryan Reynolds (FINE.

    This movie was utterly terrible. This movie is by far Jeff Bridges\' worst movie to date. It was terribly stupid. Do not waste your money on it. I don\'t usually fall asleep during movies but I did with this one. Just terrible.

    I enjoyed this movie never thinking it was like Men in Black, because the Men in Black movies are classics and as far as comparing any other moves to them, I don't go there. Some of my favorite actors provided some worthwhile entertainment.

    Poor knock off of Men in Black. Was ready to leave well before the movie was over.

    Horrible movie! No redeeming factors at all! Such a waste of money. Not funny, not interesting - no plot, and the action was weak. How did they ever get Bridges, Reynolds, and Bacon to appear in it?

    If this movie was meant to be a comedy, it isn\'t. If it was meant to be entertaining, it isn\'t. If Jeff Bridge\'s character was meant to disgust you, well I guess it was successful. Stupidest movie I have seen in a long time.

    Oh no!!! What do you get when you put Men in Black and Hellboy and stick them in a blender with a big hand full s--t? A c--p smoothie named R.I.P.D.! I will never get back the 90 minutes of my life I threw away by watching this movie.
