Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This was too long, mean, and gory for me, though the satirical gloss and well-executed trick ending will probably impress some."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Law and Whitaker are disastrous in the lead roles. It's a dreary and violent film that betrays its three years spent on the shelf."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"Although it's an interesting premise, its lack of originality gives away where much of the film is going to go, that is, right up until you get to the unexpectedly bad ending."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Enthusiastic stealing from other movies is great if I can feel the enthusiasm. I couldn't."
‑ Dave White,
"Repo Men never quite finds its own identity, abandoning any attempt at serious comment early on in favour of ludicrous levels of lopped limbs, cartilage and claret."
‑ Jordan Farley, SFX Magazine
"Better and smarter than you might expect."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"There are plenty of moments when the appearance of a flying, green-glow Chevy Malibu would be a welcome distraction."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"I've seen a lot of this dystopian future in science fiction... so much so that it's become cliche."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Sapochnik is completely unable to create suspension of disbelief, at least with the preposterous plot he had to work with."
‑ Matt Kelemen, Las Vegas CityLife
"If only Sapochnik and Garcia had stuck more to their ideas than their guns, they'd really have something."
‑ Rossiter Drake, San Francisco Examiner
"The overused homages and a tacked-on twist ending are just failed attempts to save Repo Men from its own shallow blood lust."
‑ Ian Buckwalter, NPR
"Alternately smirking and dully disgusting."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Sapochnik, Law, Whitaker, and Schreiber have so much fun with all the extremes, wallowing in their shameless excess with the right dollop of macabre, self-aware humor."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"'You wouldn't steal a car. You wouldn't steal a handbag. You wouldn't steal a movie...' Well, hang on now. Those anti-piracy warnings shouldn't simply be reserved for the download-happy consumers at home."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"If you like strange, dark humor and can sit through a lot of boredom to get there, you might like it about as middling as I do. Most people won't be able to put up with it that long, though."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
