I’m dead.
05 February 2016

A cop is shot dead by his partner, only to come back in the ‘Rest In Peace Department’, an afterlife police force operating in the real world.

This has a Men in Black vibe to it but it’s more Men in Cack because it’s almost unwatchable. It’s a turd cocktail of bad writing, third rate special effects and paint-by-numbers direction. Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges should really have known better. The studio should be offering refunds to everyone who went to see this at the cinema, it’s just so dull.

I cannot remember the last time I saw something that cost $130 million to make that was less entertaining. In fact, it’s probably the worst movie ever made with that kind of budget. Avoid at all costs.
