I'm trying to create a full list of the subgenres. Cyberpunk can best be defined as high tech meets low…
For a price, any organ in your body can be replaced. But it can also be repossessed.
In the future, medical technology has advanced to the point where people can buy artificial organs to extend their lives. But if they default on payments, an organization known as the Union sends agents to repossess the organs. Remy is one of the best agents in the business, but when he becomes the recipient of an artificial heart, he finds himself in the same dire straits as his many victims.
Without a doubt this has got to be one of the most underrated films ever! I loved the pairing of Jude Law and Forest Whitaker! And Live Schreiber is the cherry on top! It has an intriguing and very unique premise that is as dark as it is gruesomely gory!
The Sci-fi Action flick boasts plenty of relentlessly violent action scenes one of which was definitely an attempt at recreating the hallway fight scene in the original Oldboy!
The pink room scene blew me away!
J-Lizzle in the lab cooking up beatz with the Rza whilst Ghost Dog watches over.
The movie is all heart with no soul. The Oldboy rip-off felt like a corridor scene without an exit. And the Brazil ending saved it from completely falling off the cliff.
"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.

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.
Repo Men is ridiculous, implausible, and completely rips off the hallway fight scene from Old Boy. On the other hand it's good, gory fun, and while it rips it off, it's still pretty bad-ass, as are many other scenes. I must say, though, it went from a 3 to a 3.5 in the third act, but the very end almost took it back down to a 3. I would have preferred the pink door conclusion. Either way I enjoyed it and feel it's a bit underrated.
Bit slow to start, but turns into a capable chase thriller, with some great ideas - though never really fulfils them to their full potential.
One man having trouble paying for his heart must keep on step ahead in order to stay alive and that's your movie right there. it took me a while to finally watch this film because in the past it took me a while to watch it, Like I would watch about 10 mins of it and then turn it off and then a few weeks later I would try and sit throw it but couldn't, And finally the third time I finally watched all of it and I got to say that this movie sucks balls.
Derivative mashup of "Logan's Run" and "Brazil" spiced with a bit of the old ultra violence, some erotic surgery, and a nice performance from Forest Whitaker. I didn't hate it.
I thought it was a remake of the Repo Man. But it was a good.
Ein extrem guter Film mit vielen brutalen Szenen, guten Schauspielern und einem tollen Soundtrack. Die FSK:16 ist sehr überraschend.
Two hours of what should, at most, have been a 75 minute knockabout sci-fi thriller have worn me down so much I can't even write a coherent review. This is just a lazy mish-mash of stolen ideas from superior stories. A jumbled up mess that goes nowhere interesting and does nothing worthwhile. A big waste of a decent budget and cast.
This should've been a taut little 89 minute thriller and instead it's nearly two hours of overblown nonsense. Get me some scissors.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
