What does these sentences mean?

"Odds against you? Nowhere to turn?" is a shorter way of asking the questions "Are the odds against you? Do you have nowhere to turn?". When the "odds are against you", it means that your probabilty of success is low. When you have "nowhere to turn", it means that you cannot find help or safety anywhere.

"Re:" and ">" seem to be elements copied from an old-style forum or bulletin board posting. I don't really understand the connection with "I just have seen that text at movie". Did the text appear on a computer screen in a scene in the movie? Is that what you mean?

Hi, the answer to your question that is listed as "correct" is accurate. Especially since this is an English forum. However, I think it is important to point out that there is a deeper meaning to the sentences in the film you were watching in order for it to make sense in the context of that film. You were watching "The Equalizer" starring Denzel Washington. It is a new film adaptation of the 1980's television show of the same name. In the television show from the '80's the main character (nicknamed "The Equalizer") would place personal adds in newspapers that would say, "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer. 212 555 4200."

In the new film version they are paying homage to the old television series by updating a familiar tagline for the modern era and using modern technology. So Denzel Washington's character is The Equalizer and he has posted an online personal that reads "Odds against you? Nowhere to turn?" in a similar fashion to the original Equalizer's newspaper ads. in that specific scene you are referencing, someone has replied (hence the "Re:") and has asked "I'm in trouble. Can you help?"

A second later you see Denzel's character typing back "Yes" implying that he will help the anonymous person asking for his help. Fans of the original series will instantly recognize this as a nod to the original series.
If the odds are against you then i can help if you need me.

Please don't add posts that contain nothing but a quotation of the original question. It adds nothing to the discussion to ask the same thing again, especially when the answer has already been given.
