Repo Men movie posterThis will be a (hopefully) weekly segment I will be doing. In it I watch a trailer for an upcoming or just released film without knowing anything else about the film. Who knows how this will turn out, but for my first article I chose to watch Repo Men online free after seeing an ad for it on television and being completely baffled.

I then watched the full movie on YouTube and link it here for you. So it looks like there’s a company in the near-future that constructs human organs that look like car engines. They cost 750 thousand dollars and yet they sell them on QVC. Right. And this company seems to hand out credit like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac because Forest Whitaker and Jude Law have to track down those that don’t pay and shoot them with tranq guns or something and then cut out their organs right there in the living room, presumably leaving them to die.

And you need to watch online the full movie – they seem to constantly be chasing down these delinquent payers, and shooting them as they run through forests or wherever people run. This is almost certainly a thinly veiled allegory for the recent credit crisis and housing bubble.

Jude and Forest grew up together (word for word in the plot), despite the fact that Whitaker was born before JFK was shot and Jude was born around the time Nixon was impeached. As usual in this sort of movie (see District 9), the protagonist must be fed some of his own medicine. In this case, Jude apparently screws up defibrillating someone and gets blown across the room (impressive), and then gets a car engine heart. Now he has moral trouble stealing other people’s organs and is the one who gets chased because he can’t pay. Oh, if you watch Repo Men you’ll find he also falls in love with a hottie who probably has a fake organ.

Liev Schreiber is the good old typical corporate villain and orders Jake to take down Jude. Then there’s a whole lot of shooting and ridiculous explosions. Showdown scene. Flash title. Deep voice saying Repo Men. Apparently there’s some ridiculous twist at the end but it didn’t show up in the trailer (unlike Shutter Island) so I can’t speak for it. It’s got a 20% on rotten tomatoes. Go figure.
