"Repo men"

"Voici en images ce qui nous attend tous bientôt, et ce que vivent déjà les Chinois, les Africains, les Roumains, Turcs, Indiens, Latino-Américains et peut-être quelques autres en Occident pour lesquels on ne sait encore rien." (Un médecin, 06/04/2010)

"In a near future when artificial organs can be bought on credit – as well as repossessed - a former repo man goes on the run when he can't repay his debts."

Repo! the Genetic Opera and Repo Men: both the same, both different, both worth your time!, 28 March 2010

Author: benmcfee from Canada

"There is a great deal of controversy surrounding this film's blatant similarity to Repo! The Genetic Opera. Some call this malicious larceny, and others offer coincidence as a possible explanation.

The first difference between these films is obvious. One is a rock opera. The other is a drama. But these are not the only differences.

While both films are character studies of a man who repossesses human organs for a living, the approaches taken are quite different. Nathan Wallace in the Opera is a loving father, and caring person who has been coerced into doing a job he finds horrific. It drives him mad, and effectively splits him into two people. One of the Opera's main themes is emancipation and redemption; both his own and that of his sheltered daughter, Shilo. Remy, in Repo Men, is a thug, pure and simple. He jokes about the people he kills. He makes a game out of the slaughter. His change of heart only comes when just this happens: he needs his heart changed.

The Opera seems to focus more on moral decadence. It's a society obsessed with plastic surgery, drugs, money and power. It is a world where not only is human life cheap, but death is profit. Imperialism is the main villain. Repo Men makes a statement, but it's more of an afterthought than anything. The Union in Repo Men really seems to think that it's doing good. GeneCo in the Opera makes no such pretence. It doesn't have to. Organ failure in that world is epidemic. Anyone who doesn't go to GeneCo simply dies. They've got the world by the balls.

Both these films are very well done. Both have some serious flaws. Other reviewers have commented much more effectively than I on these, so I won't get redundant and repeat them here. I will say that while the imagery, and the rock opera approach to Opera is far superior, Repo Men has better dialogue. Each movie should be seen, as they both compliment one another very nicely."
