Straining to be a social problem movie that Makes A Statement. Unfortunately that statement is so simplified that it feels almost insulting.
October 7, 2015
It easily takes home the Josef Mengele award as the vilest movie in recent memory.

Although it's an interesting premise, its lack of originality gives away where much of the film is going to go, that is, right up until you get to the unexpectedly bad ending.

I've seen a lot of this dystopian future in science fiction... so much so that it's become cliche.

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.

Enthusiastic stealing from other movies is great if I can feel the enthusiasm. I couldn't.

Sapochnik is completely unable to create suspension of disbelief, at least with the preposterous plot he had to work with.
December 15, 2010
This was too long, mean, and gory for me, though the satirical gloss and well-executed trick ending will probably impress some.

'You wouldn't steal a car. You wouldn't steal a handbag. You wouldn't steal a movie...' Well, hang on now. Those anti-piracy warnings shouldn't simply be reserved for the download-happy consumers at home.

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.

If only Sapochnik and Garcia had stuck more to their ideas than their guns, they'd really have something.

Better and smarter than you might expect.

If you like strange, dark humor and can sit through a lot of boredom to get there, you might like it about as middling as I do. Most people won't be able to put up with it that long, though.

July 4, 2010
The overused homages and a tacked-on twist ending are just failed attempts to save Repo Men from its own shallow blood lust.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.4/10
April 22, 2010
Beyond its shapeless sense of the future, humdrum story and fairly routine plot mechanics . . . this flick mostly recycles old action-movie parts.
April 22, 2010
It takes itself far too seriously when it should be having more fun with its speculative (high) concepts.

One of the worst endings of any film, ever. Seriously. Ever.

The plot becomes predictable before an ending that appears to have been borrowed from Terry Gilliam's Brazil. Never as cool or clever as it would like to think.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 19, 2010
The film bounces from knockaround black comedy to gruesome action film to not-quite-clever-enough sci-fi mindbender, without ever establishing a consistent tone or a style that works.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 16, 2010
Great stuff at first, but when Law grows a conscience and goes underground with the uninsured, the narrative excitement slumps.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
