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.
This film does what it says on the tin, quite a bit of action, a good twist, and a couple of stomach churning gratuitous organ removals, guaranteed to make the squeamish leave! Jude Law was good, although don't expect any nomination worthy performances. Special effects I thought were great. What did surprise me was the production quality of the blu-ray. The usual preview adverts were preceded by an announcement that it was downloading up to date reviews. Call me a geek, but this made me watch them intently, with no real idea whether I was watching something on the disk or something being streamed. The production quality of the disk, the previews, the menus and the film itself are excellent. Overall a good fun flick, I probably won't watch it again, although maybe with my son when he's old enough. 3 stars for the film plus an extra one for the quality of the disk.

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. 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.
