    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.

    Amazon.com

    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

    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!

    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 Better than expected. August 25, 2010
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    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 Oh my Gosh January 30, 2011
    By Trinity
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    We're 50+ and we thought this was about repo-ing cars.....
    I popped it in and we sat to watch it while we had dinner.
    oh boy- oh boy- oh boy!
    So it was a bit of a shock at the beginning when it turned out to be something more. Hey, I was on a bit of a spending spree for DVD movies looking to stack up some entertainment for our evenings and snagged this one.

    How many of you reading this that have seen the movie are laughing your butts off right now? more than a few I'd say....

    Lucky for us, we rolled with it and at the end decided we liked it.
    If you're a Scifi fan and you don't mind some gore and appreciate a little moral quandary in your entertainment, my guess is you'll like it.

    We've gotten to the point where we WANT something different, something out of the ordinary. Just one thing....this is NOT about two guys going after cars that haven't been paid for. It's not Tokyo Shock which we like on occasion....
    but we definitely were surprised.

    I saw it had a wide variety of ratings and thought...ok it'll probably be something different. It is NOT a trip to Mamby Pamby Land or for those for whom the color yellow makes them sad. There's even one scene you'll probably back up and play a couple times while you laugh with tears rolling down your face.
    "Don't Taze Me Bro!!!"

    Everyone else has covered just about everything else in their reviews.
    It was good entertainment for an evening as an inexpensive used movie.
    'nuff said.
