Baseado no livro The Repossession Mambo publicado em 2009 por Eric Garcia, Repo Men é uma ficção cientifica adaptada pelo próprio Garcia em parceria com Garrett Lerner, e direção de Miguel Sapochnik. Em um futuro próximo a sociedade utiliza com frequência os serviços da empresa The Union, que fornece órgãos mecânicos para seres humanos. Caso o comprador não honre a dívida, a empresa tem o direito legal de reintegração do orgão. Jude Law interpreta Remy, um coletor de órgãos da empresa The Union, quando sofrer um ataque cardíaco durante um serviço Remy é submetido a uma cirurgia, onde lhe é transplantado um dos corações fabricados pela The Union. Em consequência do ocorrido, Remy deixa de exercendo seu trabalho, sem ter como pagar a dívida, Remy passa a ser caçado pelo seu melhor, Jake interpretado por Forest Whitaker que também é um coletor, na fuga Remy conhece Beth interpretada por Alice Braga, Beth também é uma fugitiva que não pagou pelo seus órgãos, na fuga o casal vive uma estoria de amor dramática ao tentarem destruir a The Union. O elenco conta também com Liev Schreiber que interpreta Frank gerente da The Union. Os roteiristas tinha em mãos uma premissa intrigante o suficiente para fazer um filme épico, mas de repente tudo começa a escorrer pelo ralo e no final sobra pouco. A direção é cheia de imbecilidades, que sacrificam uma matéria prima louvável.

Plot: Somewhere in the near future a company loans artificial organs to the public, with interest. If they can't make their payments? The company will repossess the product with one of it's dedicated and enthusiastic staff members.
My Review: A fantastically built near future setting (minus the cars which look older than the release date) with an equally brilliant plot, script and cast. The execution of this movie only lacks in sound critiques by its audience.
This movie is a breath of fresh air, maybe not in complete originality of the plot's skeleton, but certainly in its meaty insides. Flush with quotable one-liners, realistic presentation of the actual "repossession" jobs, compelling and believable acting by both of it's main stars and an overall adeptness in hitting the mood between horror style gore and dark comedy. A completely original take on the presentation of graphic violence and melancholy unparalleled since the titan that is Pulp Fiction. The soundtrack alone is worth watching this movie.

An awesome film and a good insight to what could possibly be the future. Plenty of violence and action. Just remind me to never get an artificial organ. Jude Law aint such a poof neither. Your owe it to your family, you owe it to yourself to see this film.

Repo Men is a film that I don't think has ever been done before and why would it it's completely ridiculous, But it works so well, In the future if you can't pay for your organs they get repossessed, Easy plot some very graphic scenes too, With some great action it's got it all, And the twist at the end is one of the best in film today, People will love the end or feel like they just got a giant middle finger from the writers, Either way it's a great fun gory film that's full of shocks and will have you talking about the ending all night.

Cop-out ending prevents the film from a higher rating.

REPO MEN (Unrated) is exactly what it claims to be -- an action packed sci-fi thriller (of sorts). The only really off-putting part of the film is the wife's reaction to the accident Jude Law's character has. Otherwise, the movie moves along at a nice clip with several well done fight scenes and a generally believable course to an even more believable end. I thought it was a-okay.

Despite its interesting premise, this film is insipid and not very original, and it goes on limping between serious action and awkward satire. What makes it a bit better, though, is its last twenty minutes, with a terrific, badass ending that will leave you thrilled and chuckling at the same time.

Interesting movie, but not that great.

Borrowing a premise that was done better before in a more energetic way, Repo men wastes it's talented leads in an messed up mix of gruesome violence and genre cliches

Thought the critics were a little harsh with this one....I thought it was petty believable!

It starts off interesting and has a unique concept, but becomes ridiculous and over the top as the movie goes on. Jude Law and Forest Whitaker have always been great actors, but they couldn't save the mess the script had. It is one of those movies, when the credits rolled, that you ask yourself "What was that?". The second half played out like a cheesy, weird B-movie. Like I said, it starts off interesting, but becomes a mess and the "twists" in this movie are extremely disappointing.

A mess but also painfully underrated Repo Men is a slick,action packed sci fi film with an ending twist that will have you gasping... even if it is stolen from a great Terry Gilliam film.

Really good film. Great cast and acting. Brilliant plot with fantastic action, kept me gripped the whole way through. Brilliant twists and turns. Really made you think about things. And the ending was really good, with a fab twist, which made you wonder.

Way better than most people will tell you and has a moral message as well as typical government matrix that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Was great, then fizzled.
