'Repo Men' Synopsis

In the futuristic action-thriller Repo Men, humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you don’t pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its property…with no concern for your comfort or survival.

Jude Law plays Remy, one of the best organ repo men in the business. But when he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the company’s top-of-the-line heart-replacement…as well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his heart’s no longer in the job. When he can’t make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy’s former partner Jake (Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker), to track him down.

Now that the hunter has become the hunted, Remy joins Beth (Alice Braga), another debtor who teaches him how to vanish from the system. And as he and Jake embark on a chase across a landscape populated by maniacal friends and foes, one man will become a reluctant champion for thousands on the run.

    @JaysonB190: I apologize for how rude my previous comment may have come off, but I wasn't intending to offend those who did enjoy the music. I didn't hate it as much it sounds, it just didn't measure up to the expectations others had built up for it in my mind. On that note, it wasn't necessarily bad, but it wasn't necessarily good either. This is of course my own opinion, and as far as I'm concerned these two worlds can live together in peace. I do enjoy musicals, a lot actually, and I enjoy dramas just as much, regardless of how similar the story may be. This just happens to be the exception that proves the rule (hypothetically as I never actually watched Repo Men).

    Park, while I bow courteously to your interest in this movie, please, and this goes for all people who have, do not insult "Repo! The Genetic Opera." I know your qualm relies on the music but that's what makes it awesome for fans such as myself and more.

    CAN'T OUR TWO SIMILAR WORLDS LIVE TOGETHER IN PEACE?! Probably not. I may go see this movie, even though my loyalty lies with Repo!. The two movies are pretty much one in the same, minus the music. Granted. If you didn't like Repo! The Genetic Opera for the music, here you go. Stop bitching about the Opera and let us die-hard fans deal with it.

    This is a total ripoff. It's the Lady Gaga of the movie industry. This movie has already been done and the trailer doesn't do it any justice. Really Jude Law? Really?

    To clarify my position, I found the story, the characters, and the general concept of the future environment to be all very good and I probably would have like it a lot had it been a straight science-fiction movie. What I didn't like was the rock opera execution. I found the lyrics were mediocre and cyclical and it made the story and characters feel extremely false and hard to believe. It made it feel very cheap.

    Oh, and it had Paris Hilton in it.

    The difference is that this actually looks like it will be executed well. Repo, while conceptually interesting, was a terrible movie. It sucked a lot. This actually looks good.
