REPO MEN - Review

Repo Men is confounding mess of a movie. It wildly throws itself between genres, tones, and styles. What's so frustrating is that some moments are tons of fun, others are irritatingly melancholy, and then there are moments where the film is so bad it's good. It's a whirlwind of a picture that sweeps you up and then smashes you back into the ground. It's fun and painful at the same time and those sides draw a stalemate in the story of guys who will murder you because you can't make a payment on your artificial organs. It's a kind of story that could go in any direction, but it's amazing how far it tries to go in every direction.

Remy (Jude Law) and Jake (Forest Whitaker) are 'repo men' for The Union, a corporation that sells artificial organs (called 'artiforgs') to desperate people. When people can't make the payments, the repo men come in, kill you, and take the artiforg back. It's never answered why this business is so successful and no one would expose the gruesome nature of its transactions.
