Repo Men takes place in a future where many people are facing crippling debt for their artificial organs. Two long-time friends (Jude Law and Forest Whitaker) are the best at repossessing these organs in a violent and deadly manner when customer accounts fall into arrears. Things get turned on their head when one of them ends up with one of their company's synthetic hearts and faces a sudden bout of conscience. I found this movie very compelling, full of ultra-cool violence and social satire. There is a really dark humour throughout that definitely won't appeal to everyone, but I loved it. Liv Strieber really stood out as the hilariously heartless boss who can't turn off his greasy salesman persona, even when dealing with friends. You could easily see this as a commentary on the current health care crisis, but I felt is was more a look at humanity. The repo men are so desensitized, so completely removed from reality and what they are doing that it is genuinely shocking. It is disturbing to see them enjoying a casual family barbeque after killing people without a second of remorse. An entertaining story that will make you think, while not taking itself too seriously.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting take on the Repo Man April 20 2013
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Repo Men(released Mar/10)stars,among others,Jude Law,Forest Whitaker,Liev Schreiber and Alice Braga.If you think this is just another remake of the /84 film Repo Man,think again.This film goes beyond the simple concept of that film,whose premise about the world of the folks who repossess goods to pay back debts was both serious and funny.No this film is serious all the way,with a decidedly sharper edge to it.
The film's premise here is based around the two main characters of the film,Whittaker and Law.They are a couple of guys whose relationship extends back to public school,through the service and now as Repo Men.But this isn't modern day but 2025.The two work for a huge conglomerate whose main function is to offer VERY pricey body replacement parts to clients.Law and Whittaker go after those who default in their payments by literally taking possession of the replacement organs on the spot.The fact that the person more often than not dies,is of no consequence.Also the company actually prefers a default,as they end up making more money! A company with a heart.
The film follows these two amigos through their "routine" days.Law's marriage shows signs of severe strain and Law has openly suggested to his pal that he might be transferring off the street and into sales.However during a routine repo of a man's heart,Law's defib unit short circuits,almost killing him.When Law comes to he's laying in a hospital bed with one of his companies artificial hearts inside him.Law wants it out,but unfortunately cannot survive without it.
When Law leaves the hospital and goes home his wife coldly gives him his briefcase and he is out on the street.He heads to Whittaker's for a place to crash.Soon the two are back out in the street but something has occurred with Law.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got more than i expected! Jan. 9 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I only assumed that I'd simply get the blu ray enhanced version of one of my favourite movies, but to my surprise it was full of so many extra scenes and extras that I was blown away. This is a fantastic buy if you've loved the movie and if you haven't watched it, I really recommend getting this to see it in all it's glory.
