Based on a comic book series, this unfortunate film has been compared to Men in Black, coming off second best. The aliens have been swapped for dead people, but the general plotline is pretty similar. After dying on the job, a young cop gets sent back to Earth as a member of the Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side. He has a partner to show him the ropes: a veteran sheriff who has spent his career in this legendary police force. When they uncover a plot that could end life as we know it, two of R.I.P.D.'s finest must miraculously restore the cosmic balance... or watch the tunnel to the afterlife begin sending angry souls the very wrong way. This film is releasing in both 2D and 3D, this is the 2D version.
