Consensus: It has its moments -- most of them courtesy of Jeff Bridges' rootin' tootin' performance as an undead Wild West sheriff -- but R.I.P.D. is ultimately too dim-witted and formulaic to satisfy.

I watched this movie with three chatty strangers on [a] Thursday night in an otherwise empty theater. Universal couldn't say "no." Looks like that's our job now.

Mr. Bridges is almost always fun to watch, but even his squinting and Slim Pickens-style whooping can't make the time pass faster.

Bake a 'Men In Black' pie; throw in some 'Ghostbusters,' 'This Is the End,' 'True Grit,' and 'Weeds,' drain the fun out, and you get the half-baked, derivative "R.I.P.D."

This spends little time on exposition and doesn't go in for any false pathos; compared with most recent comic-book movies, this is lean, unpretentious filmmaking--and to my taste, a lot more fun for it.

A half-hour into the film, and it feels like the eighth day of jury duty.

The kind of terrible that doesn't wash out, destined to be remembered among the pantheon of big budget bombs like "The Adventures Of Pluto Nash" and "Cutthroat Island."

Boston Globe

Too bad director Robert Schwentke ("RED") and the writing team handling the 3-D screen adaptation don't hold up their end, failing to do much with a premise that felt like it could rate with, say, "Men in Black."

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.

The Verge

It's not a buddy-cop movie, nor is it an action movie. It's just one vaguely funny joke told for 98 minutes.

** I've heard this compared to "Men in Black" a lot. While the premise is similar, "Men in Black" is a much better movie. Here, Jeff… More

Going into this movie, you should know what to expect and with that inn mind you should be able to enjoy it for what it is - a comedy.

fairly poor, like a bad men in black meets ghostbusters.

Intriguing and engaging concept but fails to fully appreciate its own making, amusing in places, can't help but feel someone else could have executed it… More
