Excerpt: Jeff Bridges must have lost a bet to get saddled with a script like this, as for Ryan Reynolds, are we really surprised he was in this? This is such a sad Men in Black ripoff that found a way to be even worse than MIB2, didn't think that was even possible. Avoid at ALL costs.
Excerpt: Actor Ryan Reynolds must be box office poison. Ever since his leap into superhero mode in X-Men Origins: Wolverine & Green Lantern, any other movie he has headlined or co-starred in has tanked at the box office."Safe House" and this one R.I.P.D. Not even the strength of Jeff Bridges can save this Men in Black offshoot. However if you take it for what its worth, goofy fun, then R.I.P.D ain't that bad.
Summary: If MiB and Ghost Busters had a baby… It's a fun movie based on a comic book, if you are going to review it based on it's standing next to Downton Abbey then, you probably should adjust your medication. It isn't high art, but it is enjoyable for what it is a silly summer action movie.
Summary: The summer movie season isn't exactly one of the better ones, with "The Lone Ranger" falling flat and no real dramatic gem. "Wolverine" is out next week and may be the hit Hollywood is hoping for next to the wonderful "Despicable Me 2". Despite its promos, "RIPD" doesn't live up to the preview's promise. I was suspicious when I didn't find any review in the paper, usually a warning sign. However, I wanted to give it a shot because the premise was a good idea.
Summary: I honestly don't understand all the hate. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this film. Yes it was a bit like MiB maybe and the CGI could've been a bit better, but my friends and I, as well as the packed theater, couldn't stop laughing. All I can say is don't listen to reviews and go see for yourself. If you go in expecting a bad movie, you're not going to enjoy yourself.
Summary: I have no idea why the other users on this site are being so harsh. I though it was an okay, some what cheesy action comedy. But anyone who says it's bad didn't needs to get better taste in movies. Personally, I had a great time seeing it, and I think you will too.
