For a price, any organ in your body can be replaced. But it can also be repossessed.
In the near future, when artificial human organs can be bought on credit, one man makes a living by repossessing organs their users can't pay for. What happens when the best repo man in the business can't make payments on his own artificial heart?
Film #27 of No Rewatch November
Damn, they do not hold back! Jude gives the koreans a run for their money hammer-wise. It's his movie all the way. He's a total badass and he sells everything which is pretty well done considering a lot of what happens and a good deal of the dialogue is a hard sell.
"There'll be no violence and gore in the first 15 minutes of this film." I thought as I sat down with my full plate of roast chicken and potatoes. Barely had enough time to get my first bite in.
Mejor me hubieran dado Leche Betty de chiquito.
Gracias a esta película, tengo nuevos estándares para ver películas de ciencia ficción. "Está malona, pero al menos no es Repo Men".
Además, si viste Brazil, 12 Monkeys e incluso OldBoy, hay algunas escenas que te pueden dar mucho coraje.
Fans of sci-fi: definitely give this a shot. Those who are squeamish about operations and open wounds: consider yourself warned! I found the realistic look of some shots disgusting to the point of being almost unable to keep watching; they are, however, along with the indifference towards these acts, part of the unique world of the film. One nitpick: why make the setup (you'll know what scene I'm referring to) so extremely obvious?
Jude Law and Forest Whitaker are repo men; if you can't pay for your artificial organs they come and take them back, after a certain amount of time.
Jude Law then gets in an accident and gets an artificial heart. What follows is a classic "future society with a corrupt system/problem gets taken down". The insane gore and cool action scenes make this worth seeing, even if it takes some time getting there and some plots are pretty stupid (looking at you, big obvious plot twist).
Lastly, Jude Law's wife in this = worst wife ever. Stupid bitch; even her kid's smarter than her. Asshole.
This movie wasn't compelling, extraordinary, nor was it the best science fiction I have seen. BUT it certainly WAS entertaining from top to bottom, beginning was a little shapeless but once the middle came around so did my attention.
No es la mejor historia de ciencia ficción que he visto, es cierto. Pero el plot es ingenioso y la música también tiene sus aciertos. Lástima de la cheesy story que le metieron. Y la escena de la mesa (casi final), era un erotismo exagerado. Pero a fueeeeeerzas hay que meter esas cosas. GEEZ.
And now it is time to throw another rotten tomato!
I went to see this and although I knew it was rotten I still wanted to see one of my favorite actors - Jude Law - in a sci-fi performance. Gattaca was something he was in prior and I just had to see how well he performed.
1. They are using a modern day VW Toureg I think as the vehicle these people drive and a very POOR effort was made to make the world these people were in look futuristic at all (in terms of automobiles or places these people go and things they do) (-1000%)
2. There is a moral dilemma with the idea that you…
Fun no-expectations film.
Nice future organ romp.
Law & Whittaker make a great team who simply repo the company's property when the client fail to pay . The story isn't really unique but it is told well. The traffic-lighted conclusion is only a matter of guessing where it ends; that aside it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the film one bit .
Lemony Snicket plays a man who repossesses peoples' purchased organs if they fail to make their payments. And he has blood all over him.
As dystopian future movies go this is above par, but it doesn't bring much of anything new to the table. Engaging performances and energetic direction keep this film from feeling totally derivative, but there is that nagging sensation that we've seen all this before.
Regardless, I like Jude Law in this a lot, and I don't say that often.
Remy: If you're still counting, this knockout number four.
