For everyone that complains about how high your insurance and medical bills are; “The Union” will happily take your calls. Jude Law leads a star studded cast of bad asses hell bent on one thing; collecting your overdue organs. Loosely based on “Repo: The Genetic Opera” (Only worth watching to see Paris Hilton get whats coming to her).
The world is finally run by hospital bureaucrats, more specifically Liev Schreiber. The UNION grants new and better organs to anyone, for an impossible price. That’s where Law and Whitaker come into play. When you run up your 90 day grace period they repossess your overdue organs. But what happens when the man repossessing needs an organ of his own? After a failed collection, Law is forced to use his own artificial organ. From then on our hero runs for his life and the life of his spicy Latina (Braga). Now, this isn’t a spoiler site so I won’t give away anything, but this movie even though it seems like your run of the mill bloody action movie, creates a twist that would make M.Night Shamalamading-dong blush.
The DVD contains Deleted Scenes, Special UNION commercials (worth a few chuckles of their own) Featurette on the highly advanced visual effects. Commentary with the Director and Writers.
If you love seeing hearts and organs being ripped out of people’s chests, bouncing breasts, and huge explosions (if you’re on this site its assumed that’s your bread and butter), then do yourself a favor and buy the Blu Ray single disk unrated edition.
Don’t make this movie something it’s not. If you’re in the mood for tons of blood and some memorable explosions give Repo Men a peek. You won’t be dissapointed.
