Movie Review: Repo Men

Repo Men, at it's core, is about selling your soul to the devil. A company called The Union manufactures and sells bionic organs and body parts to people who are in dire need for them. In most instances, these people cannot afford to pay the astronomical prices for these artificial organs and are faced with ludicrous interest rate plans. If they fall behind their monthly payment, repossession agents are sent after them and their artificial organs are essentially harvested from their bodies and taken back by The Union. Jude Law and Forest Whitaker play best buddies who work as repo men for The Union.

This movie is all over the place. It starts off light-hearted, then goes through a whole depressing, emotional phase and ends in very gory fashion. The premise is interesting enough (they always are) but the constant change in direction of the movie completely put me off.

I don't really see what the casting director saw in casting Forest Whitaker together in a movie like this one. I must say Jude Law brought his A-game in this one. His character is chock-full of charisma and underlying sarcasm. Forest Whitaker looked completely out of place and ultimately became an annoyance.

The gore in this movie is excessive and unnecessary to say the least. And there is an exponential increase in the bloodshed in this movie. By the end of the it, the floor had enough blood to fill a blood bank. The gore in this film is completely unexpected. Any of the pre-release marketing buzz, although there wasn't much of it, had very little indication of how inappropriate this film would be for the faint-hearted. Even the first half of the movie served no notice of the gore that was to be expected.

Having said all this, in some weird, creepy, crazy way, I was quite entertained by this movie. Although the humor could have been better and the movie could have been shorter, I felt a thrill watching all the mindless violence and the crappy B-grade plot organization with A-list actors.

The movie is executed poorly but interesting nonetheless. It's a weird one because despite my less-than-flattering review of the movie, it's worth a watch. Jude Law does a great job and if you're a fan of the dude, it's as good an excuse as any to go see the movie.

I give Repo Men 5 out of 10 Popcorns.

Movie Poster: Due Date


Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis and Jamie Foxx. Can you get a better combo than that? I don’t think so. Along with director Todd Phillips who did last year’s smash summer comedy The Hangover (also starring Galifianakis), they bring this year’s supposed big comedy- Due Date.

The teaser trailer for the film was released about a month ago and the poster was just made available on the web a few days ago. I think it’s very Hangover-ish, don’t you? You can check out both the poster and trailer below.


High-strung father-to-be Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) is forced to hitch a ride with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) on a long road trip in order to make it to his new child's birth on time.

The trailer wasn’t incredibly funny. But it was okay because I’m a big fan of Zach Galifianakis. He has his moments. The due date on Due Date is November 4 in Malaysia.

Free Step Up 3D Passes With Friendster Fizz


Do you love dance movies? More specifically, do you love the Step Up franchise? Well check this out. There’s a brand new profile by Friendster called Friendster Fizz dedicated to giving out freebies such as movies preview passes, movie premiums and much more.

They are starting this giveaway with free movie passes to the preview screening of the much anticipated dance flick, Step Up 3D.


Moose (Adam G.Sevani) who missed his flight back to Baltimore when the Maryland School of Arts (MSA) goes to Paris for an international dance competition. He soon makes friends with an American away from home and beautiful French sophisticate. They introduce Moose to the red-hot Parisian underground dance scene, and before long he is wowing the local dancers with his unique moves as they prepare for an underground dance competition. With time running out before the big event and their routine stolen by a rival crew, Moose turns to his loyal MSA crew in Baltimore for help.

Can Moose, the MSA crew and the French crew pull together a new dance number at the last minute? And will it be good enough to beat the world’s best street dancers? Will Moose kiss the frog?

Personally I’m super excited for this movie. Forget the plot. Forget the characters. Forget the dancing. Think of the 3D. I know I’ve said I hate all these gimmicky 3D movies of late, but Step Up 3D will be different.

There are essentially three types of 3D movies in cinemas right now:

  1. Film shot in 2D and later converted into 3D
  2. Film created in 3D and exported in 3D (eg. animations)
  3. CG effects combined with #1 above (eg. Avatar)

Step Up 3D won’t be anything like these because the film was actually shot using proper 3D cameras. So expect an incredible cinematic experience when you watch the movie.

All you have to do to stand a chance to win these free preview passes to the movie is become a fan of Friendster Fizz and post a comment stating why you would love to win those passes. Like these peeps right here.


The contest closes on August 18 so what are you waiting for? Check out Friendster Fizz now! Oh and pssst, by the way, if you post creative dance poses on their profile pages, you might also win additional Celebrity Fitness vouchers.

Check out the Step Up 3D trailer below.
