What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Even Bridges can't save formulaic flop.
Rozanne Els Nie eens genotvolle Bridges can hier red.
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. Having seen it, I can understand why it was hidden from critics. The disappointment is that it wasn't hidden from everyone else as well.
T. Durgin For a studio dump job (a late July release with no critics' screenings), this was better than I thought it would be. But it's nothing you should pay full price for.
Tomatometer 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.
