Repo Men trailer

Dec. 23, 2009by: Niki Stephens

Quick note, this is not a reboot of the genetic opera.

That being said, the trailer for REPO MEN might look uninspired, but I'll be the first to say I'd watch the hell out of this.

The repo guys in this story, Jude Law and Forest Whitaker don't collect just anything. If someone misses a payment, they go after them and rip open their chest for an artificial heart. Law and Whitaker are in the business of taking back expensive artificial organs. Everything seems all fun and bloody until Law's heart gets a jolt from the RZA and his awesome hair. After receiving his new heart, the debt becomes too much and his old partner (Whitaker) must hunt him down.

Liev Schreiber adds another reason to make me want to see this. Plus, when I heard the remix for "The Outsider" by A Perfect Circle, I was immediately drawn in. What do you guys think? Is it worth your time?

Extra Tidbit: Jude Law and sci-fi movies are always a good idea in my opinion.

Looks Good but...

The filmmakers have to agree this idea came from Bousman's movie...It's the exact same idea. Still wanna see it, just want to make sure credit is given where it's due.

yeh, 'REPO the genetic opera'. this film is a genetic copyfor shame, you couldnt even change the tittle more. the only difference is its replacement organs that look like shellfish in place of soft tissue ones, and no singing.

this looks a little like "Repo: The Genetic Opera", but without all the things that made it suck.

Don't care what any other clown says but this looks like another reason 2010 is going to be a kick ass year in film.

Doesn't sit well.

I understand that movies can be similar from time to time, but this is ridiculous. I mean this is like law suit worthy in my opinion.
It's not like the concept is a commonly used staple like a "buddy cop" movie or something, this is a stolen concept from a very original film.

Repossession Mambo finally gets a trailer and a release date. Only been waiting about two years...Repo! The Genetic Opera got in the way.

Fuck this...

Repo The Genetic Opera kicked ass! My friends and I watch it every month as it makes a great drinking game. I can't stand how closed minded people can be sometimes. I won't watch this specifically because they're clearly trying to capitalize on the cult popularity of 'The Genetic Opera.' This is no better than the 'Vampire Diaries' and 'True Blood' being made specifically to capitalize off the Twilight hype. (Although I have heard 'True Blood' is good. Twilight still blows though.) Come up with

Come up with something original hollywood.... and btw... why is Jude Law still getting work?

Looks Good. Real Good.

Yet another movie to look forward to. However it does seem odd that they were able to essentialy use the same plot from that repo opera movie. Which I could barely watch. That thing was bad. Real bad.

Great cast.

But there's no getting past the fact that it's "Logan's Run" meets the donor organ collectors from "Monty Python and the Meaning of Life."
