Repo Men

Writers Eric Garcia and Garrett Lerner team with director Miguel Sapochnik to adapt Garcia's novel about a repo man named Remy whose body has been constructed almost entirely of artificial organs. When Remy (Jude Law) fails to keep up on payments for his recent heart transplant, his former partner vows to take back the organ by force if necessary. Meanwhile, Remy finds an unexpected ally in the form of his long-lost wife, Beth (Alice Braga), who has also been retrofitted with numerous artificial organs. Now, despite the fact that they haven't seen each other since Remy joined the army ten years ago, the desperate repo man and his sympathetic wife attempt a daring escape from a man who holds the lives of millions in the palm of his hands. Forest Whitaker and Liev Schreiber co-star.

This movie was just "eh" for me - I felt like it really dragged on in spots. There is a lot of blood and killing in this movie so if you're not comfortable with it - be forewarned, you'll see a lot of graphic scenes. I think the idea of this movie had potential, I think it fell apart when they attempted to write it in a movie format. The biggest twist is how this movie ends, you don't see it coming. I am still undecided if I liked the ending or not.

  1. I saw an interview with Jude Law promoting this movie. Maybe I'll wait for it to show up in the Red Box. It should at least be worth a dollar to see him, right?
