Crap of the lowest order

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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: There are several problems here terrible CGI, awful chemistry, and a forgettable story. Overall I know they were trying to capitalize on MIB's success, but just like MIB 3 this film is just not that fun. Plus what was with that terrible accent by Jeff Bridges? D
