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 it's highly skilled repo men to take back its property... with no concern for your comfort or survival. We must now decide if buying more time on Earth is worth the very deadly cost.
Jude Law plays Remy, 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 (Forest Whitaker), to track him down.
When the hunter becomes the hunted, Remy joins Beth (Alice Braga), another debtor who teaches him how to vanish from system. As Remy and Jake embark on a chase across a landscape populated by maniacal friends and foes, one man will become a reluctant champion for thousands on the run. His fight to survive will leave Remy with one option: take The Union down before it kills him first.

Futuristic action packed, mildly gorey film!!

This film came completely out of nowhere to be honest. Really wasnt expecting this.
Based in the not too distant future in my opinion. This film portraits events based on artificial organs. And hence the name repo men, getting them back when you dont keep up your payments. Just like the mortgage company taking back your house. Well sort of .. ha
Brilliantly put together with some fantastic fight scenes. And substantial gore to this film , Especially near the end i found things got slightly more gorey. Maybe you wont think so but i sure did..
A superb twist i must say to round it up, fantasticly executed. But giving me some substantial annoyance. But still very good.
Jude Law and Forest Whittaker pulled off some fantastic acting and really brought it home for this film.
Its different, its action packed, its gorey, 4/5 overall!! Recommend!!

This movie truly is a gem, certainly one of the best this year, fantastic story very original and an interesting yet bleak vision of what could happen! Some of the scenery of the movie is very blade runner with its style, theres a hint of other films too but still has its own unique look, the union are in charge of replacing your body parts helping you live longer for a very high price and a long term set of instalments to pay, however if you dont pay and fall behind they send out the repo men to take them back! Jude Law and Forest Whitaker are awesome and work well as partners and both play a really great role. The level of violence and bloodshed is off the scale in this movie so its never a dull moment! There is a very clever twist to the movie too that you would never see coming and never even imagine, its very well conceived. overall its a film well worth every penny. Quality entertainment.
