In the future, artificial internal organs will be widely available, but their high cost will lead to a thriving, if bloody, repossession business--at least that's the idea in Repo Men, whose title characters must carry scalpels, and not scruples. When clients default--and, at 19 percent interest rates, it happens all the time--it's up to Remy (Jude Law) and Jake (Forest Whitaker), the two most swashbuckling field operatives at the Union company, to reclaim the merchandise. The film's reviewers largely seemed to miss the wicked humor that underlies Repo Men's kooky futuristic world, as Remy's domestic situation is portrayed with typical backyard barbecues and typical nagging wife who wants hubby to ask his boss about that promotion, already. Everything's amusingly typical, that is, except for the fact that Remy regularly charges into people's apartments and grabs their kidneys. It would be nice to report that director Miguel Sapochnik was able to maintain the initial air of satire (RoboCop comes to mind at least as often as an obvious inspiration such as Brazil), but this movie begins to stumble in its middle section, as Remy himself becomes a subject for organ replacement. (His efforts at self-medicating procedures, especially a climactic surgery sequence, leave Patrick Swayze's similar efforts in Road House far behind.) Sudden shifts to a woman-in-peril scenario--with capable Alice Braga as the target of Union's organ hunters--make for an even more puzzling turn, and the jumbled rhythm of the second act suggests a certain amount of postproduction futzing around. The soundtrack is rife with Guy Ritchie-style song cues, some of which are fun, and Liev Schreiber has a good time smirking his way through his role as Remy's cold-hearted boss. The biggest problem here is that once the movie is over, a great many things don't make any logical sense, and a last-minute switcheroo only muddies the waters. Which are pretty bloody to begin with. --Robert Horton

В ближайшем будущем люди смогут усовершенствовать свои тела, заменив отказавшие органы искусственными имплантатами. Есть только одно препятствие: это дорого, и если вы не в состоянии оплатить счета, части вашего тела будут изъяты "Потрошителями"… самыми болезненными и кровавыми способами! Джуд Лоу играет Реми, одного из Потрошителей. Когда он опаздывает с уплатой счетов за новое сердце, его старого напарника Джейка (обладатель премии Oscar Форест Уитейкер) посылают выследить Реми и вырвать сердце из его груди. Теперь, когда охотник сам стал жертвой, Реми присоединяется к Бет (Алиса Брага) и пускается в бега. Встречая по пути и друзей, и врагов, он становится рекордсменом среди тысяч таких же, как он, пытающихся спастись от Потрошителей.
