Reviews & comments

Refreshingly different

It's nice. Quite a different way of doing all the bloody gory violence and it's pulled off quite well. Credit to Eric Garcia for his ingenuity.

Worth a Watch - For Guys

I like the combination of gory action and deeper meaning. While the main character can be sometimes hard to relate too, I think over all the movie works well. May not be so popular with women as the gory scenes can get a bit intense.

This ultra-gory speculative noir is, at its infrequent best, certifiably nuts; the rest of the time, it's one numbingly brutal slog.

It may have been a shrewd business decision by the film’s director, Miguel Sapochnik, to treat the story as a nasty, comic thriller. But when, after a certain point, Repo Men subsumes its satire to strenuous action sequences, it loses its edge and turns into a chase movie of no special distinction.

Repo Men makes sci-fi's strongest possible case for universal health care.

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.
