  • Rene Rodriguez

    The sci-fi thriller Repo Men gets off to a sluggish start. But wait. You have to give the movie time to find its groove and establish its premise.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • John Anderson

    Repo Men grafts moral ambiguity onto the action thriller, and the result is a weird but likably misshapen beast.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    One problem with Repo Men is that there's not enough material to sustain a 111-minute motion picture.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    It’s a time-waster with brains, but ultimately not enough brains, and one that wastes too much time.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Repo Men makes sci-fi's strongest possible case for universal health care.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    There's a good idea behind Repo Men, not a whole lot of thinking, but at least one whole idea.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    There is a mild pleasure in the sight of Jude Law pirouetting with a hacksaw through gangs of extras, but the amusement is notional. I actually don’t find him terribly interesting as a kinetic object.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    If Repo Men could have sustained its ghoulish humor, it might have been a guilty pleasure.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    There's not a lot of humor here, just violence and more violence. The acting is fine enough - Whitaker, of the talented bunch, seems to be having the best time - but the slicing and dicing overpowers the cast, the story and everything else.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    It may have been a shrewd business decision by the film’s director, Miguel Sapochnik, to treat the story as a nasty, comic thriller. But when, after a certain point, Repo Men subsumes its satire to strenuous action sequences, it loses its edge and turns into a chase movie of no special distinction.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A grisly one-note chase thriller.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The big problem here is that dark sci-fi satire works best when it aims for several targets. Repo Men aims at corporate greed, which is good, but doesn’t fill in the details.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    A tedious example of speculative fiction.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Where has all the fun science-fiction filmmaking gone?

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    There's a key organ missing from the movie itself: a brain. In its place is a memory bank of other, better movies.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    As an account of how for-profit big business literally rips a consumer's heart out, Repo Men is too graphic for me.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Sitting through this movie is worse than being locked in a room with a continuous loop of "Nip/Tuck" playing on a jumbo screen.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jordan Burchette

    It’s not cynically bad, it’s simply a case of movie malpractice.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    This is not a bad cast, but whatever wit the script aims for is lost in the queasy details director Miguel Sapochnik found more fascinating.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Ian Buckwalter

    The overused homages and a tacked-on twist ending are just failed attempts to save Repo Men from its own shallow blood lust.

    NPR Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    What could have been a biting, darkly comic action flick about capitalistic health care run amok is instead a familiar, gory, post-apocalyptic slog.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Andy Klein

    Whitaker and Schreiber, both of whom are capable of brilliance, are stuck in one-dimensional roles. It’s not only the characters who have mechanical organs; the film itself is equally lifeless and cold.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Comprising reclaimed bits from "Blade Runner," "A Clockwork Orange" and "Children of Men" and glibly served up with hyper Guy Ritchie attitude by first-time feature director Miguel Sapochnik, the resulting in-your-face mess never knows what it wants to be when it grows up.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    It's sad when a bit of grim futuristic silliness like Repo Men falls short on all counts, down to the most basic level of entertainment value. Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Repo Men is a rare film where Toronto plays itself. It's also the first I've ever seen where a typewriter is used as a lethal weapon.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The obvious question about Repo Men: Why bother?

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Wade Major

    Should be immediately screened in film schools across the world as a shining example of everything that is wrong with the American studio system and the increasingly dreadful junk it produces.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    This ultra-gory speculative noir is, at its infrequent best, certifiably nuts; the rest of the time, it's one numbingly brutal slog.

    Variety Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    The movie shares this premise with 2008's "Repo!: The Genetic Opera." It would be worth researching who ripped off whom if both weren't ghastly.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Basically a soulless slasher flick, and one that demeans its gifted performers.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Has exactly the same premise (Repo! The Genetic Opera).
