a laugh-out-loud action romp, this movie will entertain anyone. with awesome performances, great effects, and lots of action, younger kids will be intrigued. but some of the violence and sexual innuendo makes this epic sci-fi film a better fit for older kids. there is lots of violence, beginning with a police raid with explosions and shootings of people. while on duty in the R.I.P.D, Roy and Nick shoot many monsters, making them explode into dust. the monsters themselves cause havoc by destroying things and rampaging through the streets. one even fires off a Gatling gun and kills a few officers. when the Spear of Jericho is used, clouds come down and demolish buildings, with falling cars and crumbling debris. another house rots away and falls apart. there are some non-lethal beatings and chases. amid all the action is some mild sexual comments about various body parts and some implied nudity near the beginning. Roy's avatar is looked upon longingly by others. most of the profanity is said by Roy and Nick.
