Repo Men: Directed by Miguel Sapochnik. With Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Alice Braga, Liev Schreiber. Set in the near future when artificial organs can be bought on credit, it revolves around a man who struggles to make the payments on a heart he has purchased. He must therefore go on the run before said ticker is repossessed.

“When the economic crisis first hit, Clive Owen came out with The International, a film about an evil bank. With the health care crisis now in full swing, Jude Law has come out with Repo Men, a film about evil health care people. Repo Men is good, but seems to have come out a bit early because this seems like a perfect summer film.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI cannot remember a time when Jude Law was this much fun. Fresh off a turn as Watson in Guy Ritchieu0026#39;s superb Sherlock Holmes, Law plays Remy, who work for the The Union, a company that supplies artificial body parts. If you canu0026#39;t pay for them, The Union sends Remy and his best mate Jake (Forrest Whitaker) after you. They cut you open and take the parts back. Its a bloody good time for all.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLaw is such a badass in this film. You would think a role like this would go to Jason Statham, but a renowned actor like Law, who really isnu0026#39;t used to being the badass, plays the part very well. With the amount of blood and violence and quick takes, you would think this flick was made by the Neveldine/Taylor duo. First time director Miguel Sapochnik does the film well, but youu0026#39;d like to see what an experienced director could do with it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhile Repo Men falls short with some of its blood for the sake of blood scenes and some acting shortcomings (Forrest is good but has too little to do), it makes up for it with Law and its twist ending. Go catch Repo Men. Youu0026#39;ll rip your heart out if you donu0026#39;t.”
