Storyline

In the future 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. Former soldier 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. But a side effect of the procedure is that his heart's no longer in the job. When he can't make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy's former partner Jake, to track him down.

An entertaining if formulaic sci-fi action film
31 October 2014 | by (San Antonio) – See all my reviews

Repo Men came out during a time where another movie called Repo! The Genetic Opera with very similar plot lines with the difference being that The Genetic Opera obviously had some singing. Repo Men is a more straight forward action sci-fi film that makes some commentary on class division and healthcare with some well-executed action although it isn't that great.

Good: I really like the pairing of Jude Law and Forest Whitaker. They work well together and provide a lot of great scenes and Law really brings it here. The action scenes are well done and the movie has a slick futuristic look to it. A good supporting cast with Liev Schreiber and Alice Braga.

Bad: The movie is rather pedestrian at times with the commentary being done well in other movies. The movie is also pretty long and the middle section drags a lot making the movie very uneven. It also moves at a predictable route for the most part.

Overall, it's not a terrible movie and it is entertaining, but it doesn't leave much an impression.
