Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: As a recession-era satire, Repo Men strikes a very bitter chord.
Rotten: The overused homages and a tacked-on twist ending are just failed attempts to save Repo Men from its own shallow blood lust.
Rotten: Repo Men is a rare film where Toronto plays itself. It's also the first I've ever seen where a typewriter is used as a lethal weapon.
Rotten: Repo Men is basically a soulless slasher flick, and one that demeans its gifted performers.
The only thing good about this movie (not really the movie) was the posters and cover art and iTunes managed to screw that up.
The theme is a total rip from "Repo! The Genetic Rock Opera" which was, in my oppinion much better due to the musical styling in rock form. Bottom line it's the same movie without the 'killer' solos.
If possible I may just rent it, perhaps It could be an acceptable remake with higher quality gore.
The Ending will make you mad
I thought the movie was dark, cynical, yet optimistict and so I liked it a little. There's also a lot of blood splattered around every 2 minutes. Jude Law and Forest Whitaker were great together. However, I was very upset about how the movie ended and walked out raging. I won't tell you what happens but just trust me when I say that you will be very angry at the ending.
