Repo Men has no heart (pun intended)


I'm not going to spend a lot of time on "Repo Men" because frankly it made me angry. About an hour in, I was secure in the fact it was a gratuitous, gory waste of my time. Move forward to the last half hour and I'm feeling manipulated into a false sense of sadness by a great soundtrack ( cannot get "Burn My Shadow" by Unkle out of my head) and the "twist ending".

"Twist Ending", I liked you when we first met but you have now overstayed your welcome. You jump out at the end with a "gotcha" but in reality I always see you coming. Stay away for a while and maybe we can be friends again someday.

When I heard the premise for this movie I thought it might have been interesting...when I heard the reviews I thought again

I might actually give it a chanc again on DVD. There was this whole mid section of the movie that was really good. It was as they stitched together maybe 3 different movies and each part suffered because they could not decide where to go....Also skip the last 10 minutes if you are squeamish...
