R.I.P.D.: Rest in Peace Department

Sound & Vision Magazine
12 February 2014
  • Excerpt: The 3D sports remarkable clarity and depth of field and utilizes every opportunity to showcase it with no halo or ghosting effects to speak of. The action moves fast and furiously, but an early scene involves the newly deceased Nick walking through a frozen-in-time diorama of the last moment of his life. The imagery is sharp and detailed while debris floats in the foreground as the camera moves seamlessly through the scenery and the background stays crisp and clear.

R.I.P.D.

Slant Magazine
6 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Can a movie simultaneously be composed by a committee specifically designed to orchestrate the most blandly mass-appeal entertainment and still be completely, erratically incoherent? And can such a film, when plunked down in the high noon of a movie-going season almost totally populated by samey big-ticket action mayhem, not manage to tempt contrarians ready to devour anything that seemingly refuses to stay within any definable template?

R.I.P.D. Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: The Film Some comic books are best left on paper. Such is the case with R.I.P.D. Oh sure, the pitch probably sounded great. Ryan Reynolds is too nice to be a corrupt cop. However, before he can redeem himself, he meets with an unfortunate accident, courtesy of Kevin Bacon. Of course, sudden death isn't going to get in the way of this cop's promising career. Instead, he's resurrected as part of the Rest In Peace Department (R.I.P.D.

R.I.P.D.

BluRay Authority
28 October 2013
  • Excerpt: It’s been said that there are no original story lines since Shakespeare did them all.  That’s been quite some time.  Still, authors, screenwriters and filmmakers alike have managed to eek out a pretty good living even taking this into account.  As per usual – what am I getting at?  Well, what happens when you combine Ghostbusters with Men in Black ?  In essence you end up with R.I.P.D. And as much as some want to poke fun at this concept, I rather enjoyed it.

R.I.P.D. (2013)

blu-ray.com
25 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Even as an at-times shameless Men in Black clone, R.I.P.D. could be much, much better. A sharper vision, more decisive direction, a smarter screenplay and less generic baddies would have gone a long way to patching the film's wounds, which is where the cast -- Schwentke's saving grace -- comes into play. R.I.P.D. never amounts to a good film, but Reynolds and Bridges give it a go anyway and breathe as much life into the horrifying hijinks as possible.

R.I.P.D.

High-Def Digest
21 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Very loosely based on the comic by Peter M. Lenkov, 'R.I.P.D.' is brimming with wildly fantastic CGI marvels, sensational action sequences, and a dazzling host of colorful characters. Unfortunately, the supernatural buddy-cop fantasy is a joyless, comatose mess with leaden performances from Reynolds, Parker, and Bacon, leaving Bridges to carry the movie as the story's only highlight.

R.I.P.D.

Cinema Blend
19 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Poor Ryan Reynolds. After the back-to-back box office flops that were Green Lantern and The Change-Up , the struggling leading man really could have used another hit in the vein of Safe House . But R.I.P.D. with its sloppy mix of crime drama and action comedy isn't it. Simply put, this is a bad movie. That's not to say it's not fun though. Based on the comic book Rest in Peace Department by Peter M. Lenkov, R.I.P.D.

Film Review: ‘R.I.P.D.’

Variety
19 July 2013
  • Summary: This generally uninspired mashup of 'Ghostbusters' and 'Men in Black' benefits from a hilariously free-associative performance by Jeff Bridges.
