Consensus: Bombastic and intentionally gross, Repo! The Genetic Opera has a unique style but lacks the wit and substance to be involving.

Susan Walker
Toronto Star

As it has evolved from a 10-minute cabaret piece, through a short film Bousman made in Toronto, to the big screen, Repo! The Genetic Opera has gained in both guts and gusto.

I hated this movie.

The lowbrow and highfalutin collide in an orgy of upscale disembowelment as director Darren Lynn Bousman gives uneasy birth to the gore opera.

David Cronenberg might have made a great movie with the plot to Repo! The Genetic Opera.

I don't know if words can describe just how awful and disgusting and insulting this movie was to watch.

The case for its quality is solid, the music is catchy, and "Repo!" may just destined for cult royalty.

Hollywood Reporter

All-out thriller with few Bond touches but plenty of high-octane action.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

Like a compost of Rocky Horror and Sweeney Todd, but without the floridity or the savage wit.

I expected this film to be just completely downright awful and having no redeeming qualities. And yes, while it really isn't that great of a movie, it is… More
