Typical eye candy and gun blazing mixed with sci-fi elements touched with so-called comedy. This reviewer was reminded of horrendous mix of The Matrix, Ghostbusters and M.I.B. So many things wrong with the picture. It laced sufficient character development (especially for the veteran R.I.P.D. officer Roy Pulsipher), relationship of Nick and Julia felt flaky and cheesy, Ryan Reynolds lack of conviction (never liked his acting and choice of films), flimsy special effects and terrible screenplay. It was painful to view such a talented artist in Jeff Bridges to be connected with this outrageously ludicrous picture. So many questions with no answers: not sure how suddenly the "job" of Roy and Nick focused on vengeance, how suddenly Bobby Hayes (Bacon of all people) masterminds the opening of the portal, and many more plotholes which puts golf courses to shame. Not really funny at all and the only saving grace for this flick was the earnest performance of Bridges and his interesting character. Another addition to one of the worst films list.
