Movie Review ---- R.I.P.D.
Well, again, I really wanted to love this one..it has all the elements of a big summer block buster, a great actor (Jeff Bridges) and a cutie pie (Ryan Reynolds), but....something just didn't quite gel. It was a fun movie, lots of comedy and action, with some great graphics. The undead were well done, but seemed like a re-tread. It reminded me a lot of Ghostbusters. Bridges really chews up the scenery with his old cowboy self...he used almost the identical voice he used in True Grit. The story was so-so. I had no idea that Kevin Bacon was going to be in this movie, he didn't show up in any of the previews. That was a surprise.
I give it a 3, but John says 2.5, and I say wait until it comes to the small screen. I wish we had gone to see Reds 2 instead. Sigh.....
