Shorts: R.I.P.D. (2013)

Take Men in Black. Change aliens to dead. Tommy Lee Jones to Jeff Bridges. Will Smith to Ryan Reynolds. Make it less funny. And you pretty much got R.I.P.D. Ryan Reynolds is cop, who was killed by his partner. He is recruited to Rest In Peace Department. Jeff Bridges is his wild west sheriff partner. They hunt dead, who have stayed among the living.

Movie feels like cheap copy of first Men in Black. R.I.P.D is like Men in Black's agency. Dead turn in to monsters that look like Men in Black's aliens. Main characters are like alternative reality versions of agent J and agent K There are references to scifi classics like Blade Runner. How ever I would have preferred not to have that reference.

Worth checking if you want to see something similar to Men in Black. It is not good. Only average. But if you want something like that, you could make worse choices.
