This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.
Paul Verhoeven has enough trouble finding love from critics as it is, so it’s no wonder that a filmmaker emulating Verhoeven would have an even harder time. Repo Men was ripped apart by critics when it hit theaters, and its box office performance did little to compensate. On DVD though, it stands to shine. Those who love Verhoeven’s absurdist mix of grotesquely over-the-top violence and cynical satire will likely be able to overlook many of the film’s shortcomings, such as its trite romance and repellant characters. I can see why a lot of people would hate the film, but there’s a trashy weirdness to it that kept me interested—enough, anyway, to suggest considering it for a rental.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – Both rated and unrated cuts of the film will be included, as well as deleted scenes, The Union Commericals, an Inside the Visual Effects featurette.
