Sapochnik, Law, Whitaker, and Schreiber have so much fun with all the extremes, wallowing in their shameless excess with the right dollop of macabre, self-aware humor.

Repo Men never quite finds its own identity, abandoning any attempt at serious comment early on in favour of ludicrous levels of lopped limbs, cartilage and claret.

Better and smarter than you might expect.

The concept of organ repossession is introduced in masterful fashion by director Miguel Sapochnik, through a glorious juxtaposition of sound and vision entwined with a viciously dark humour.

Taken as a fairly inoffensive action flick, it's perfectly serviceable. Jude Law is easily the least irritating he's been in years, and the decade-too-old soundtrack still compliments the cartilage slicing, sinew-slicing action sequences.

It might not be the most original tale, but it's visceral, visual and vitriolic, with a line in sharp, dark humour.

Preposterous but nonetheless enjoyable, this is an impressively directed slice of sci-fi trash with some nice ideas and a strong performance from Jude Law.

...a frustratingly uneven yet sporadically electrifying sci-fi thriller...

If you're so inclined you may want to see it fast on the big screen. Then when it emerges as a cult favorite, you can say you were there at the beginning.

Facile with its colorful background strokes, breezy but effective with its characterizations and generally more thoughtful than it needs to be -- a spry, fun film that seems tailor-made for the current zeitgeist.

Sure, there are plenty of plot holes, but we didn't come to the movies for artiforg tort reform. We came for squibbulous close-quarters knife fights.

It's a mess of a movie in many ways, but it's a hot mess.

If you're like me, and you once financed an entire Spring Break to Panama City Beach with Discover Card cash advances at 43 percent interest, then Repo Men will hit a little too close to home.

Repo Men is a thrilling, bloody, organ-ripping sci-fi spin on a familiar theme.

It's a subversive little outing with a terrific soundtrack and a 'do-unto-others' moral, and it might appeal -- just a hunch -- to a young male audience.

Repo Men, rough though it is, is disturbing enough, funny enough and shocking enough to work on some weird level.

Still, despite its flaws, this ambitious parable is enjoyable, and sometimes viscerally moving.

At least a robotic handclap is due to director Sapochnik for working within his limitations (including obvious budgetary ones) and giving this Frankenstein beast as much forward momentum as it possesses.

Repo Men is a mess of a film but it's third act has an action scene that is so strong it is worth seeing. Two words for you; Hacksaw camera.
