4.0 out of 5 stars Blackest of black comedies - derivative but bloody good fun!, 1 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Repo Men [DVD] (DVD)
Wow! A whole movie based on a 1980's Monty Python sketch (which makes a delightful cameo part way through)!

Repo Men is a very black comedy at heart (no pun intended), which should appeal to those of you who thought Ichi The Killer was a hoot! There's some genuinely witty dialogue between Jude Law and Forest Whitaker and a few laugh-out-loud moments (I loved the "SHE's the surgeon???!!!" scene!). You will, however, probably be grinning and wincing in equal measure, as there's plenty of blood 'n guts on show to melt the hardened gore-hounds' butter. There's also the occasionally quite profound bit of social commentary and satirical sideswipe at capitalism gone mad.

OK so the "twist" is ripped pretty well straight from Terry Gilliam's Brazil, but it's still rather good fun. Oh and the soundtrack is an absolute stonker - the Dave Stewart track as the end credits roll is gonna be stuck in my head for days!

Hardly Oscar material, but well worth a look!
