So this is what you get when you mix Men in Black with Ghostbusters. R.I.P.D. is a 3D supernatural action film based on the Dark Horse Comics series Rest in Peace Department by Peter M. Lenkov (Demoliton Man, Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever). The film is directed by Robert Schwentke (Red, Flightplan) and stars Jeff Bridges, Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Bacon and Mary-Louise Parker.

R.I.P.D. hits theaters on July 19.

Lonely Soldier Boy from these forums illustrated some of the comic books that this was based on.

Well I'm a HUGE LSB fan - so I will have to check out his work on it!

I am not the target market for this kind of movie as I never even saw MIB...

First reaction - sounds like garbage. Second reaction - I liked "The Frighteners" so who am I to judge?

Well, if I can see Marisa Miller's stellar body flattened across a windshield it might prove to be worth it...

Could be interesting, but lets just see how it pans out.

Ouch!

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 9%
Metacritic Score: 14

"The worst comic book adaptation since Jonah Hex." - Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service

"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. The plot manages to be fully predictable and freakishly bonkers at the same time, seemingly born of the same kind of brainstorming-on-L.S.D. session that must have given us Howard the Duck." - Kyle Smith, New York Post

I think he did right after "Two Guys, a girl, and a pizza place" personally.

Just the name alone makes it bad. I think Jeff Bridges just didn't have anything better to do at the time.

The only good performance Ryan Reynolds has done was in Ted. And he wasn't even credited in that film.
