Critic Reviews

It’s a time-waster with brains, but ultimately not enough brains, and one that wastes too much time.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
If Repo Men could have sustained its ghoulish humor, it might have been a guilty pleasure.
There's not a lot of humor here, just violence and more violence. The acting is fine enough - Whitaker, of the talented bunch, seems to be having the best time - but the slicing and dicing overpowers the cast, the story and everything else.
Repo Men makes sci-fi's strongest possible case for universal health care.
A grisly one-note chase thriller.
Orlando Sentinel
This is not a bad cast, but whatever wit the script aims for is lost in the queasy details director Miguel Sapochnik found more fascinating.
The Hollywood Reporter
Comprising reclaimed bits from "Blade Runner," "A Clockwork Orange" and "Children of Men" and glibly served up with hyper Guy Ritchie attitude by first-time feature director Miguel Sapochnik, the resulting in-your-face mess never knows what it wants to be when it grows up.
This ultra-gory speculative noir is, at its infrequent best, certifiably nuts; the rest of the time, it's one numbingly brutal slog.
Village Voice
The movie shares this premise with 2008's "Repo!: The Genetic Opera." It would be worth researching who ripped off whom if both weren't ghastly.
Has exactly the same premise (Repo! The Genetic Opera).
