POLL: What Did You Think Of RED 2 & R.I.P.D.?
Two comic book movies opened in theaters this weekend, Bruce Willis' Red 2 and Ryan Reynolds' R.I.P.D.. Based on the latest box office numbers both films won't even finish in the top three. Hit the jump to place your votes and tell us what you thought.
It's Comic-Con weekend! Which means it's a great time to be a comic book fan, and it's great to be a comic book movie, except if you're Red 2 and R.I.P.D.. As both films are getting clobbered at the box office by the horror film, The Conjuring. Heck, neither of them will even finish in the top three if the box office numbers hold up as they are. Now, that doesn't mean either film is bad. I for one thought Red 2 was a very good film. And if you missed it, I posted that Red 2 review a few days ago, which you can view by clicking here.
Now, for those that have seen one or both films, place your vote(s) in the poll(s) below. And please share your thoughts on them in the comment section. For those of you that did not see one or both films, you can vote, "Haven't seen it."
RED 2 - "Retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device." The film was directed by Dean Parisot ("Galaxy Quest"), from a screenplay written by Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber. It stars: Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Anthony Hopkins, David Thewlis, Brian Cox, Neal McDonough, Byung-hun Lee and Mary-Louise Parker. Red 2 hits theaters July 19, 2013.
Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly 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.
Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) has spent his career with the legendary police force known as R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous spirits who are cleverly disguised as ordinary people. His mission? To arrest and bring to justice a special brand of criminals trying to escape final judgment by hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth.
Once the wise-cracking Roy is assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his junior officer, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork. 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.
R.I.P.D. is directed by Robert Schwentke (Red) and produced by Neal H. Moritz (Fast & Furious series, I Am Legend), Mike Richardson (Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army) and Michael Fottrell (Live Free or Die Hard).
