    I'm waiting for a movie where the future is something to be looked forward to, a future where things are, you know, good. Repo Men is not it. In this future, these repo men violently and graphically take back artificial body parts their recipients haven't fully paid for. It's another in a long line of dystopian future movies where violence and darkness are used to hide a lack of story.
    It's really too bad, because if the filmmakers had just given this a little more thought, they could have come up with a rumination on the state of our health care system that would have been pretty timely. Instead, they took they easy way out. Jude Law's Remy reposesses body parts. An accident puts an artificial heart in him, and ironically, he loses the heart to do his job. The rest of the film is a blood and guts bath as Remy's partner Jake (played by Forest Whitaker) tries to take the heart of of Jake.
    What starts out as a satire devolves into a rote chase film. The actors, both of whom have done pretty amazing work, are slumming here, and there's not much they can do. They're stuck in this movie that, like the future it portrays, is bad. Unfortunately, director Miguel Sapochnik sets it up this way, so my disappointment is his fault. Pick one idea an go with it: you've got a pretty good movie. Set up my expectations and dash them: you should have done better.

    Violent,unhappy,sado masochistc,gore flick that takes action to new level of fun and romance for people that like to go to movies anonymously for good laugh... Don't recommend for people to go to that are looking for a recessional ending
