    Thank heavens — or at least the “Department of Eternal Affairs” — for Jeff Bridges, whose hilariously free-associative performance as a 19th-century frontier marshal-turned-21st-century undead lawman is like an adrenaline shot to the heart of R.I.P.D.

  • Chris Nashawaty

    While he's (Bridges) having more fun than anyone in the audience is likely to be having, it's such a rip-snorting go-for-broke performance that it almost makes R.I.P.D. worth the price of admission. Almost.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Nothing short of wiping their memories with a real-life neuralizer is going to convince moviegoers that the supernatural buddy-cop comedy R.I.P.D. is anything more than a thinly disguised "Men In Black" ripoff.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    A film that grows less compelling and original by the minute, R.I.P.D. serves due notice that the mismatched-buddy-cop movie is wearing out its welcome all over again.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    Confusing and uninspired rather than completely inept, it’s still likely to be swiftly struck from the résumés of all involved.

    Empire Full Review
  • Eric Henderson

    R.I.P.D. devotes far more energy to concept than execution, leaving most of the promising aspects high and dry.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    There is less eye candy than you would expect, and it’s underwhelming.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    In R.I.P.D., we have a legitimate train wreck of a motion picture: a film that doesn't work on any level. It's not funny. It's not exciting. It's not engaging. It's a waste of time and money.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Perhaps there was a clever germ of an idea here, but the five credited writers didn't develop characters, scenarios or rules in this sci-fi world well enough to engage the audience.

  • Roger Moore

    The worst comic book adaptation since “Jonah Hex.”

  • Laremy Legel

    There is a legitimate film in here somewhere, buried deep beneath the rubble of its terrible script and editing. Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    With its low-stakes chase scenes, obvious-from-the-get-go villains and nonsensical plotting, this feels more like a 96-minute-long episode of Scooby-Doo that's been laboriously translated into another language and then back into English.

    It's an unpleasant way to pass a couple summer hours.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Chris Packham

    Unfortunately, the interesting drabness of the afterlife’s police department is paired with the colorless paucity of the film’s heavies...The deados, unmemorable CG brutes, spout generic bad-guy dialogue undistinguished by humor or characterization.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    The entire film has an oddly underdone quality to it, as if aiming not for greatness but to simply be passable.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Steven Boone

    Mostly loud and graceless, despite some arresting hyperbolic visuals that deserve an action film of actual soul and purpose. It's simply too generic at heart to justify director Schwentke's delirious, sidewinding, arcing, snap-zooming and whip-panning anti-gravity camerawork. Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    A dud that squanders a decent cast and succeeds neither as the comedy nor the action film it purports to be.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    R.I.P.D. never creates a believable universe, interesting action sequences, or dynamic characters. It’s a paint-by-numbers approach in which the film’s comedy and drama both fall flat.

  • Joe Neumaier

    It's nothing special. Which sort of makes it a loser all the way 'round. Expect a sad afterlife for it on cable.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Tired byplay between Reynolds’s mystified straight man and Bridges’s supernatural old pro will kill off any fond memories you have of zesty buddy films past and present.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    What’s missing is what’s often absent in industrial moviemaking of this type: story and characters, yes, but also the human touch and a sense that someone behind the scenes actually cares about the work.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Less a bad movie than simply not a movie, R.I.P.D. gives every indication of having been a sloppy first-draft script.

    Time Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    It so shamelessly borrows from so many other movies, and then does absolutely nothing to add to them -- nothing to raise the bar, nothing to make it more interesting, and really nothing to make it the least bit appealing.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    This is a second-rate special effects-dominated 3D entry that will join several prominent would-be blockbusters that need not be mentioned on the summer junk heap.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    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.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The whole thing seems ill-conceived from the start, unable to keep its parameters simple – think of Ghostbusters and “Don’t cross the streams!” – but also lacking any genuine comic spark or imagination. It’s an exhausting 98 minute ride to nowhere.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Gabe Toro

    This expensive misfire runs a little less than ninety minutes, which means that there’s likely a 105-110 minute long version that the producers hacked up in order to get the maximum amount of 3D showtimes to not embarrass the studio on opening weekend. Judging by the released product, that version is likely even worse, if such a thing were possible.
