R.I.P.D.

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

Jeff Bridges shows new re­cruit Ryan Reynolds the ways of the R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Depart­ment) – an af­ter­life po­lice force bat­tling to com­bat a ris­ing force of ne­far­i­ous corpses – in this supernatural ac­tion com­edy adapted from the Dark Horse comic. Co-stars Kevin Ba­con and Mary-Louise Parker. They say: Not much wit, not much in­no­va­tion, some nice bits from Bridges and an over­all air of un­der­achieve­ment. (Re­port, Page 12.) Wesay: Rid­dick, Kick-Ass 2, Ely­sium and White House Down all of­fer a stronger big-screen kick and at least hold the courage of their (not al­ways right­eous) con­vic­tions. Di­rected by Robert Sch­wen­tke ( Red), this is auto-pilot bland. Run­ning time 96 min­utes. Robina, Pa­cific Fair, Aus­tralia Fair, Coolan­gatta, Har­bour Town, Nerang.
