Repo Men

Critics Consensus

Repo Men has an intriguing premise, as well as a likable pair of leads, but they're wasted on a rote screenplay, indifferent direction, and mind-numbing gore.

Movie Info

In the futuristic action-thriller "Repo Men," humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you don't pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its property -- with no concern for your comfort or survival. Remy is one of the best organ repo men in the business. But, when he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the company's top-of-the-line heart-replacement -- as well as a hefty debt. When he can't make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy's former partner Jake, to track him down.

  • 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.

  • The overused homages and a tacked-on twist ending are just failed attempts to save Repo Men from its own shallow blood lust.

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

    Apr 21, 2010 | Rating: 1/5
  • Great stuff at first, but when Law grows a conscience and goes underground with the uninsured, the narrative excitement slumps.

    Apr 16, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    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.

    Working for a mysterious, nefarious organization, two men collect organs on lease in the near future. Released in 2010, after the latest financial meltdown ravaged the U.S. economy, <i>Repo Men</i> is a satire clearly aimed at American big business, equating their greedy foreclosures with stealing people's lifeblood. It's clever, and the novel on which this film is based probably works better, but as a film, the exposition is entirely too long. Also, the characters degrade into gangster film cliches. Remy has the disapproving wife and innocent child, and he eventually grows a conscience about his work (but seems to have no problem with the blood-letting of his former co-workers), and Jake is as gung-ho as ever. We've seen these characters in many genres, and the concept doesn't do enough to set them apart. Other reviewers have revealed that there's a twist ending, so I'm able to say that I liked it without giving it away. Overall, there's a lot to like about the concept and the story here, but the characters remain types, not unique or fleshed-out people.

    The RZA was pretty cool...I guess. The acting by Jude Law and Forrest Whitaker can't stop the terrible mess this film becomes in its 2nd half. The ending is like Brazil, a deus machina, but fails flat. Overall, the only outstanding positive part would be the gore and action which shows that you don't mess with the organ business.

    This action film is filled with tones of epic gun-shooting and blood/gore, and is definately worth the watch.
