    In the future, artificial internal organs will be widely available, but their high cost will lead to a thriving, if bloody, repossession business--at least that's the idea in Repo Men, whose title characters must carry scalpels, and not scruples. When clients default--and, at 19 percent interest rates, it happens all the time--it's up to Remy (Jude Law) and Jake (Forest Whitaker), the two most swashbuckling field operatives at the Union company, to reclaim the merchandise. The film's reviewers largely seemed to miss the wicked humor that underlies Repo Men's kooky futuristic world, as Remy's domestic situation is portrayed with typical backyard barbecues and typical nagging wife who wants hubby to ask his boss about that promotion, already. Everything's amusingly typical, that is, except for the fact that Remy regularly charges into people's apartments and grabs their kidneys. It would be nice to report that director Miguel Sapochnik was able to maintain the initial air of satire (RoboCop comes to mind at least as often as an obvious inspiration such as Brazil), but this movie begins to stumble in its middle section, as Remy himself becomes a subject for organ replacement. (His efforts at self-medicating procedures, especially a climactic surgery sequence, leave Patrick Swayze's similar efforts in Road House far behind.) Sudden shifts to a woman-in-peril scenario--with capable Alice Braga as the target of Union's organ hunters--make for an even more puzzling turn, and the jumbled rhythm of the second act suggests a certain amount of postproduction futzing around. The soundtrack is rife with Guy Ritchie-style song cues, some of which are fun, and Liev Schreiber has a good time smirking his way through his role as Remy's cold-hearted boss. The biggest problem here is that once the movie is over, a great many things don't make any logical sense, and a last-minute switcheroo only muddies the waters. Which are pretty bloody to begin with. --Robert Horton

    Product Description

    Remy (Jude Law) and Jake (Forest Whitaker) are best friends and The Union’s most dangerous repossession men, reclaiming top-dollar organs when recipients fall behind on their payments. But after an on-the-job accident forces Remy to be outfitted with a top-of-the-line heart replacement, he finds himself in debt and unable to pay. Now, the hunter becomes the hunted as Jake will stop at nothing to track him down to finish the job.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Healthcare With An Inhuman Touch March 31, 2010
    Format:Blu-ray
    Being summarily clobbered by movie-goers and critics alike, REPO MEN will obviously not be for everyone. But it will be a great movie for the right person, and I was obviously one of those "right" people.

    So who is this movie directed at and why? Well, it's a combination of a smart espionage thriller in a science fiction setting, with a little comedy thrown in for good measure. This might sound like a recipe for disaster, but it is anything but. But is it right for you? That's a tough call. If you're in the medical field and are concerned about healthcare insurance, it will definitely pique your interest. If you enjoyed such films as Kill Bill and Bringing Out the Dead, this will be right up your alley.

    So why did I rate the film so high? Let's look at it for a minute...

    It's topical without being "in your face." It never tells you to believe that private insurance carriers are "bad" and simply shows us a ridiculous possible future where organs are built in factories and everyone who needs a pancreas, a liver, an ear, or whatever, can get one ...for a price. The Union is run by an unscrupulous business man named Frank (Liev Schreiber, Defiance). He's basically a used car salesman trying to get you to sign on the dotted line for organs you desperately need. But make sure you don't miss any payments after you've gotten your new kidney. Why? Because if you don't pay the exorbitant prices and interest rates, your organ will be repossessed. Oh yes, even if it's your heart. How will you survive without it? You won't.

    5.0 out of 5 stars REPO MAN October 24, 2010
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    This is an excellent blu ray movie with excellent futuristic visuals set in an ultra modern metropolis. Based on a credit system, if you have an organ transplant, and have not payed your bill on time, instead of paying a late fee, a repo man is sent to repossess the organ while you are still alive! You either die on the spot, or if you have other means for a quick transplant, you better do it before it's too late! Imagine if that became your future, with black market donors being a refuge for those who can't afford it. This movie is insanely excellent with two men whose job is to rip your insides out for pay!

    After having seen a couple of reviews before I bought this I was pleasantly surprised to find this film to be much more entertaining that expected. The ending was also a big plus in my opinion.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Repossessing Cinema May 19, 2010
    Format:DVD
    Like the unfortunate organ re-donors in this science-fiction thriller that have been rebuilt from borrowed parts, so too does Repo Men suffer the fate of being a movie built upon the foundations of many a science fiction cult classic.

    This is all a truly tragic fate, considering the moments of sheer brilliance present in this all too familiar cautionary tale set amidst an all too familiar dystopian future. In 2025, top-dog Remy (Jude Law) has the thankless task of brutally repossessing the artificial organs for which their owners have defaulted payments on. He does so with surgical precision until that one day, when a fateful slice would open Remy's own heart to the plight of humanity.

    With a plot largely transplanted from Fahrenheit 451 into the world of Repo: The Genetic Opera, cauterized with a sprinkling of Blade Runner and more than a few stitches of Brazil, Repo Man may have become in itself a cautionary tale against a clockwork picture. Also starring Forest Whitaker and Alice Braga, Repo Men is an unapologetically gory affair, fast paced and frenetic, yet suffering from uneven heavy-handedness.

    While newcomer Miguel Sapochnik excels at juggling the dramatic with the sterile action set pieces with the deft hands of an early Steven Spielberg or John Carpenter, the picture ultimately suffers in his inability to skillfully suture together those crucial visual clues, thus telegraphing the ending well in advance to anyone paying attention, though having a `borrowed' ending once again does not help matters much either.

    Yet in spite of this, the picture remains an enjoyable, if not déjà vu invoking thrill ride. One cannot help but root for the protagonist and empathize with the surprisingly layered, if not clichéd, antagonists.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Different December 4, 2012
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Good movie with an unexpected ending. Very intriguing storyline...I couldn't even imagine a life in this world of taking back organs if you don't pay up. Crazy! But very well executed.

    4.0 out of 5 stars dark and disturbing action June 24, 2012
    Format:Amazon Instant Video
    After reading the only review here i decided to counter that with my own opinion. This movie is no great art, but it's also definitely not the typical hollywood formula. For that reason mainstream audiences won't like it. But for lovers of action movies who appreciate film noir and like psychological surprises, this is a special little movie. It's twisted and violent, but really not what i expected. It will raise emotions in you, not the happy disney kind either.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Repossession is Nine Tenths of Jude Law May 24, 2011
    Format:DVD
    Wouldn't it be wonderful if we were able to replace vital organs as needed with no complications? Who wouldn't want to be able to see better, hear farther, live longer, ease the burden of things like Alzheimer's from our loved ones? But nothing comes free, right? In today's consumer-driven society, people generally appear to have great difficult grasping the difference between "necessity" and "desire". However, you better be very clear in your own mind about what both of those things mean to you, as well as possessing a definitive understanding of exactly what you are willing to pay to fulfill either. You better be able to pay in full too, or at the very least, keep up your payments faithfully. Because in this subtly dystopian future, The Union will send repo men to reclaim their products if you don't!

    Remy (Jude Law) and his best friend Jake (Forest Whitaker) were soldiers once. Perhaps that made it too easy for them to make the transition into the private sector as repossession agents for The Union. Repo men once recognized by the general public, are most definitely viewed with a fearful respect that is anything but flattering. In fact, this biased view of a jaded society is not only causing Remy to doubt his career choice, it is seriously upsetting the happy apple cart of his marriage.

    Still, repossessing the mechanical hearts, livers, eyes, and other essential bits manufactured and sold at exorbitant rates to a mostly willing public is better than trying to finesse a reluctant customer into signing the purchasing contract, isn't it? Those salesmen like Frank (Liev Schreiber), seem like heartless soulless demons devoted to the almighty dollar in comparison.
