Repo Men Reviews

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.

Better and smarter than you might expect.
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.

Law and Whitaker are disastrous in the lead roles. It's a dreary and violent film that betrays its three years spent on the shelf.

There are plenty of moments when the appearance of a flying, green-glow Chevy Malibu would be a welcome distraction.

Alternately smirking and dully disgusting.

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

As a recession-era satire, Repo Men strikes a very bitter chord.

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

Repo Men is basically a soulless slasher flick, and one that demeans its gifted performers.
March 19, 2010
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 rare film where Toronto plays itself. It's also the first I've ever seen where a typewriter is used as a lethal weapon.

One can forgive the movie's defects, and its indecision about being tragedy or comedy.

It's a film to be endured more than experienced.

It's tough to recommend Repo Men outright, but you could do worse when trolling multiplex halls.

Why good actors like Forest Whitaker and Liev Schreiber have taken major roles in this wrongheaded effort is perhaps the most compelling question posed by this film.

Repo Men sets up and puts into motion an attention-grabbing premise, and then, for the most part, just goes to typical places with it.

There's a key organ missing from the movie itself: a brain. In its place is a memory bank of other, better movies.

March 18, 2010
With its radiantly ugly visuals, mean-spirited worldview and gut-wrenching levels of gore, Repo Men is about as entertaining as a burst appendix.

Under the uncertain direction of Miguel Sapochnik, the actors often seem at a loss...The inconsistency of tone is impossible to ignore.

I watched a third of the movie through the cracks of my fingers, wincing.

This is the sort of science fiction that opts for scissors to the groin or a bullet to the head rather than a complete thought.

March 18, 2010
It's a time-waster with brains, but ultimately not enough brains, and one that wastes too much time.

This is a long-delayed sci-fi slasher flick that the relieved producers are now tossing like a malodorous Molotov cocktail into the middle of our national health care debate.

I don't know if the makers of this film intended it as a comedy. A preview audience regarded it with polite silence, and left the theater in an orderly fashion.

March 18, 2010
This ultra-gory speculative noir is, at its infrequent best, certifiably nuts; the rest of the time, it's one numbingly brutal slog.

Let the 2010 Razzies race begin!
March 17, 2010
The movie goes completely insane, in the best way possible.

March 17, 2010
It's an intriguing premise, one director Miguel Sapochnik treats with all the subtlety of a head smashed in with a typewriter. Hey wait -- that happens!

[Repo Men] just turns into a grisly one-note chase thriller...

March 17, 2010
This is not a bad cast, but whatever wit the script aims for is lost in the queasy details director Miguel Sapochnik found more fascinating.

Another wholesale dystopian future, just like the last one.
