Might I entertain that this plot of carving out people's organs by force is similar to a classic urban legend?

Sorry, I can only post the raw URL, I'm having trouble refining the text...

Yeah, the movie is pretty much a sci-fi on the infamous "wake in a tub of ice with your kidneys missing" urban legend.
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.

I just saw it.

It has an interesting premise and themes,but the first half is too slow and the second half is a walking cliche.And the twist ending was unnecessary.I mean,it covered the plot holes by stating they were so implaussible because they didn't happen,but what were they trying to tell us exactly with the twist?The plot hole that wasn't coevered was JAKE revealing he caused REMY's accident.So he knew that by busting that thing REMY would have an accident that would conveniently require to give him a new organ and then,in his weak state,continue to be a Repo Men instead of something more calmed like the salesman he wanted to be?!

Jude Law and Forrest Whitaker were good.Alice Braga?Not so much.

I give this 4/10.
