There are the recently dead instead of aliens and a cantankerous Jeff Bridges instead of Tommy Lee Jones, but this is nothing more than a cheap, lifeless knockoff of “Men In Black.” The only thing standing in the way of a copyright infringement lawsuit is that Ryan Reynolds was cast to play the new recruit rather than Chris Rock or Kevin Hart.

Reynolds — who can also be heard this weekend turning in bland voice work in “Turbo” — plays Nick, a generally good cop who has made a few mistakes. When he gets shot in the face by his crooked partner, Hayes (Kevin Bacon), Nick finds himself part of the Rest In Peace Department. His job is to round up those who have died but managed to find a way to avoid final judgment.
