Storyline

In the future humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called "The Union". The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you don't pay your bill, "The Union" sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its property... with no concern for your comfort or survival. Former soldier Remy is one of the best organ repo men in the business. But when he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the company's top-of-the-line heart-replacement... as well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his heart's no longer in the job. When he can't make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy's former partner Jake, to track him down. Written by Anonymous

Many people didn't get this movie.....this movie is NOT pointless
26 December 2012 | by (Botswana) – See all my reviews

Don't worry i summarize but there are no spoilers

So its the future and you lay bye mechanical replacement body parts, if yours don't work correctly. If you cant pay your monthly installments someone is sent to take it from you . As unrealistic as this sounds there is a cold reality that i feel many people missed from this movie:

The reality of cold hard cash vs human life. Corporate greed hits hard regardless of human life or worth and the violence in this movie hits the point home. I wonder what people think when peoples homes are repossessed and they have to live on the streets or they cant pay their medical bills and have to suffer without health-care. Thats what this movie is about. It doesn't matter how important whatever you have is(like a liver) if it is owed to us we take it.....and whatever the consequences are yours to face alone.... It really is an over the top dance of symbolism between our real life and the violence and coldness that is shown in the movie.

I think the extreme violence and the far farfetchedness of this movie made people totally not see point.

It isn't an easy movie to watch or swallow and definitely not for everybody. The movie feels a little uneven at times, and the characters are difficult to like.

However in a world where wars are fought over oil and people are tossed out on the street because they cant pay their medical bills. This story is an over the top exaggeration of the security guard who tosses people out on the street. How does he sleep at night. How does he justify his actions? This movie is far from pointless...
