Well, I ended up seeing this gem of a movie and ended up writing a review for the site I contribute to, so if you have any interest in seeing what I had to say about this Men In Black style movie, head on over to LostInReviews.com and see what I got to say.
I will just bury the lead and let you see what I had to say.
Do you remember great buddy cop movies like 48 Hours, Lethal Weapon, Hot Fuzz, or maybe Dragnet? Perhaps some alien/other worldly action comedies that utilize a partner mentality like Men in Black and Ghostbusters. Well R.I.P.D. is not the movie for you, sadly, if the trailer and premise was anything you got excited for. In a summer where inevitable sequels, remakes, and established properties are going to rule the roost, R.I.P.D. is a bad mashup of so many other movies that its bloated corpse will float to the top of the list of bad movies this summer. Thankfully, the smell is masked by some (few) things about a movie that is based on so many other movies and an established comic book property.
