Armies from the afterlife
By Demi Braque
Academy award-winning actor Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart) returns to the screen to headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. (Rest in Peace Department).
Bridges plays Roycephus “Roy” Pulsifer, a legendary police agent tracking monstrous souls lingering among the living as ordinary people. After serving several tours of duty from multiple infractions on the department, Roy has assumed the ‘been there, seen that’ attitude.
Reynolds, on the other hand, takes on the role of Nick Walker, a recently slain cop who joins the team of undead police officers as he tries to avenge his untimely demise on the man who murdered him, Hayes (Kevin Bacon). Together, the duo returns to the streets of Boston in their avatars: Bridges as a buxom blonde (Marissa Miller) and Reynolds as an aging Chinese man (James Hong).
Distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures and Solar Entertainment, the comic caper is directed by Robert Schwentke, currently showing in cinemas nationwide.
