"R.I.P.D." movie quotes bring the comic book "Rest In Peace Department" by Peter M. Lenkov to the big screen in an action-comedy film. Directed by Robert Schwentke, the film was adapted into a screenplay by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. The supernatural movie released by Universal Pictures hit theaters on July 19, 2013.
In "R.I.P.D.," Detective Nick Cruz Walker (Ryan Reynolds) is a star officer who is killed suddenly in the line of duty when he's shot by a perpetrator. He wakes up to find himself in what appears to be an office where he's being recruited for a new job. Nick meets Proctor (Mary-Louise Parker) who explains that he's needed in the R.I.P.D. or Rest in Peace Division, a division of the undead police force.
Nick soon also meets his new partner, Roy Pulsipher (Jeff Bridges), who explains the job to him. They are tasked with protecting the living by taking down those evil souls who for one reason or another refuse to move into the afterlife. Since they can't do that in their normal forms, they now have new appearances, Roy as a blonde bombshell and Nick as an old Asian man. While Nick eventually gets into his new position, he finds himself struggling between saving the world and getting revenge against the criminal who killed him.If you've already seen this movie except with aliens instead of undead called "Men in Black," the other viewing options in theaters at the same time including "Pacific Rim," "Grown Ups 2," "The Lone Ranger," "Despicable Me 2," "The Heat," "White House Down," "World War Z," "Man of Steel," "This Is the End," "After Earth," "Fast and Furious 6," "The Hangover Part III," "The Great Gatsby," "Oblivion," "G.I.
