A cop on a raid gets killed. When he crosses over to the other side he is brought into service for the R.I.P.D. which go after souls that go bad. The cop is partnered with a gruff old timer to learn and go after these souls. Shenanigans and adventures occur.
Yes this sounds like a movie you have probably seen a dozen times and in all honesty it looks like it has a generic style buddy pseudo-cop story. (Think ‘Men in Black’) Watching the trailer I feel this movie has at least three things going for it:
1. Ryan Reynolds plays the main cop. I like Ryan as an actor and in this role I could see him doing a good job.
2. There are parts throughout the trailer that had me laughing out loud. The “get in trouble at work” kind of laughing.
3. And, this is the best part, Jeff Bridges plays the old timer copper!
Where do I get my ticket?
Movie should be out in theatres June 28.
