This is a fun and quirky hybrid movie that works just fine for what it is. R.I.P.D. 2: Rise of the Damned isn't working with the most elaborate budget, but it makes the most of each genre it operates in. The comedy aspects aren't particularly funny, but they're not bad either, and serve more to set an entertaining mood more than anything else. It's an effective combination of a Western, a fantasy, a comedy, and a zombie movie.

If there's any real problem with it, it's that the story gets a little too complicated as the movie gets deeper into the second act. There are some plot twists with these "deados" (aka undead bad guys from Hell intent on taking over the planet) that get to be a bit exhausting. Still, it doesn't take itself that seriously, and neither should the audience. It's entertaining.
