R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department), the film adaptation of Dark Horse Comics series, opens in theaters today and the critics are unsurprisingly unimpressed. It stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges and according to the reviews… it absolutely sucks. Like, the kind of sucking that actually sucks so much, it sucks.
It’s not unexpected, honestly. Although apparently the original comics have some sort of merit to them, the bits that we’ve seen of the film before its release were already doused in suckage. Whether this is due to the fact that Ryan Reynolds is the kiss of death for any comic book movie, although for some reason he keeps being cast in them, or because the writing just genuinely sucks… I suppose it really doesn’t matter. It just sucks.
Hit the jump to see the critics go to town.
