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.
Summary: I don't get all the hate this movie is great if you feel like watching a silly movie about killing dead people, laughed my head off. Sometimes you just need a dumb movie to make you feel all happy inside and this is what R.I.P.D is.
Summary: I totally don't understand all the hate towards this movie. Yes, R.I.P.D. has many parallels with Men In Black, but it's not the makers' fault, it's based on an existing comic after all. Besides, "a MIB clone" sounds like a compliment for me, since I absolutely love the MIB movies. Anyway, this movie's got stellar cast (Reynolds, cowboy Bridges, Kevin Bacon and the ever-pretty Mary-Louise I totally don't understand all the hate towards this movie. Yes, R.I.P.D.
Summary: Don't listen to all this hate. This movie was action packed and a good, imaginative story made this movie great. I can't believe all this hate for such a great movie. OK, maybe it was a bit like Men in Black but the story was completely original. Ryan Reynold and Jeff Bridges performance was great. definitely recommend this for people who want an original, funny, and well made sci-fi movie.
Summary: I rather enjoyed this movie. It was fairly clean for a PG-13. My son enjoyed it, as it brought back "old school" movie themes like Ghost Busters, a modern theme, and Men in Black charisma. It was funny, the monsters weren't super creepy. It probably would have done better with a little younger target age group. I recommend this.
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: For the supposed worst film of the year, It honestly wasn't that bad. I thought Bridges and Reynolds worked well together and as always Bacon makes for a good villain. Bits of comedy through out that were enjoyable. Yes it is sort of like Men In Black but it's far more action packed although not as well done. The biggest disappointment, for me, would be the special effects. For a film that For the supposed worst film of the year, It honestly wasn't that bad.
