Due to system overload a lot of the dead who are supposed to be in Hell have managed to escape capture and are walking among the living. It’s up to Reynolds and Bridges, an old-timey prospector type who died in the 1800s, to find them and send them where they belong. To call R.IP.D. “cartoonish” is probably a compliment—the design of the “dead-os” is neither fearfully monstrous nor Hobbitly detailed, landing somewhere around animated Garbage Pail Kid—but it’s not quite fun enough for these four excellent actors to justify taking the money. More fun than Man of Steel, but The Heat is still out.
