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.
