RIPD

Year : 2013 Director : Robert Schwentke Running Time : 96 Genre : ,
Movie review score
2.5/5

What’s it about?
A recently slain cop joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department and tries to find the man who murdered him.

What did we think?
Anthony Sherratt says: It’s simply Men In Black with ghosts instead of aliens. And without as many laughs. Jeff Bridges has and is great fun while Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Bacon simply play the characters they normally play.

It’s actually not deserving of the scorn it received in the US as it’s not too bad a popcorn flick. It’s entertaining enough but to be frank, at the end of it there’s very little that will stick in your mind. Except Mary Louise-Parker and her boots. Mmmmmmm.
