Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds star as two cops working for the Rest In Peace Department (R.I.P.D.), the greatest police force ever assembled from the spirits of the greatest cops who ever lived. Their job - protecting the living from monstrous spirits cleverly disguised as ordinary people. Wise-cracking Sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) is a veteran of the R.I.P.D. He is assigned Nick Walker (Reynolds), a rising star detective killed in his prime. The unlikely partners uncover a plot that could end life as we know it and have to work together before the earth is overcome by angry souls unwilling to face justice.

Once upon a time, there was an obscure comic called Men in Black. All about a secret organisation that protects the world from nasty aliens.

It became a not nearly so obscure movie.

Then along from the same comics company came R.I.P.D. The rest in peace Department. The spirits of the greatest police officers who ever lived. Who protect the world from nasty undead.

It, like Men in Black, mixes comedy with drama.

So it was a logical candidate for a movie version.

Could lighting strike twice?

Ryan Reynolds stars as Nick Walker. A detective. He loves his wife. He wishes they had more money. His somewhat sleazy partner [Kevin Bacon] offers him a chance to get that. But when he gets cold feet, his partner kills him.

Roy finds himself offered the chance by a tough lady officer [Mary Louise Parker] to work for the R.I.P.D. He finds himself partnered with Roy Pulsifer [Jeff Bridges] a tough uncompromising wild west sheriff who does things his own way.

Can the two manage to work together? Can Roy move on and let go? And can they stop a deadly plot that threatens all of humanity?

R.I.P.D. is one of those films that tries to start a franchise. Thus it has to set things up and provide a story also. Whereas Men in Black just managed to be comedy/action/science fiction and nothing else, R.I.P.D. throws in comedy, action, drama, mismatched cops who start off bickering and learn to work together, and coming to terms and moving on grief storyline also.

It may sound as if it would be unbalanced, but it actually does manage to mix it all in quite well, with each storyline getting just the right amount of space.

One star each for Ryan and Jeff...only because I like both of them....and the other star, well...the plot and script did entertain me. Hubby fell asleep after 1hr, need I say more. Seriously ..rent this one online...no need to buy. No need to own it, watching it once was enough for me.

Firstly for all the critics, you're right, the story in the film is not as good as the story in the book and looking at how much money they threw at this there is no real reason for deviating from the book. The book is about demons on the earthly plain and the film replaces them with 'deados', dead people who won't stay dead and as such are like caricature monsters, think Mr Hyde from 'Van Helsing'.
That said this is an entertaining romp following the adventures of a recently killed Boston detective who is enlisted in the R.I.P.D. and partnered with a Wyatt Earp like sheriff to deal with the deados and either capture them or send them back downstairs. It is very much like 'Men in Black' but lacks the lead characters great chemistry. Jeff Bridges is a little bit over the top as Roy the sheriff but he is entertaining enough and the film flows along at a good rate.
If you're looking for an enjoyable adventure then you won't be disappointed, just don't look for anything deeper from this movie.

This film is mindless fun. If that's what you're looking for you could do a lot worse. It's not going to change the world and it will never be considered intellectual but it's a good fun watch. I can understand why fans of the comic book might be disappointed but seriously folks, it's just a movie, unclench and enjoy.

The one negative point for me was Jeff Bridges voice/accent. It was so thick that I didn't have a clue what he was saying for the first twenty minutes but then I think my ears became attuned to it.

There are plenty of reviews already, and yes, it's MiB mixed with Ghost with 24 with Ghostbusters, and no, it doesn't really know what it want s to be - but it's very enjoyable for all that. Don't try to take it seriously, best taken with alcohol.

***This review is for the film only***

Considering that this film has been one of, if not the biggest summer flop, I was expecting it to be really bad. But having watched it myself, I have to say that it's actually pretty darn good.

The film begins with a Boston cop named Nick Walker (Ryan Reynolds) having a dispute with his best friend and partner, Bobby Hayes (Kevin Bacon), about turning in some gold pieces which they found at a recent drug bust.
During an unexpected shoot out, Walker is shot and killed by his partner and is sucked up into the clouds and recruited by the R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department). The R.I.P.D.s main function in the afterlife, is in catching souls who have refused to leave the land of the living, known as deado's. Nick is partnered with an old, gruff, U.S marshal from the wild west, Roy Pulsipher (Jeff Bridges). Together, they are sent back to earth under the guise of an alter ego avatar (I.E Roy looks like a supermodel, while poor Nick resembles an old, decrepid Chinese man) to rid the living world of the deado's and to foil their diabolical plans to take over the world.

R.I.P.D is pretty much Men in Black but with zombies/ghosts instead of aliens.

Sure it has a lot of scenes that we have all seen before, but it is also packed full of hilarious jokes and spectacular set pieces to keep the film from ever feeling stale.

The effects range from absolutely brilliant to weird and cartoonish but for the kind of film this is, they do work very well, this is a comic style comedy after all.

Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds are a brilliantly funny team and Kevin Bacon is his usual sinister, yet supercool self.
