Set in the near future when artificial organs can be bought on credit, it revolves around a man who struggles to make the payments on a heart he has purchased. He must therefore go on the run before said ticker is repossessed.
When a Las Vegas performer-turned-snitch named Buddy Israel decides to turn state's evidence and testify against the mob, it seems that a whole lot of people would like to make sure he's no longer breathing.
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.

All in all it was a good movie if they cut the last few minutes off. The last few minutes were severely lacking and kind of ruined the good feeling you get at the end of good movies. Jude Law was very good, but when is he not? Forest Whittaker was also good, but that's normal. We felt that the story line flowed okay but was a it predictable until the ending. The sci- fi theme was cool but the economic reality was bang on
We can almost expect to be in this place in the next 50 years if not
sooner. We think this is exactly where we are all heading. I loved the car - when can we get them The action scenes were good & just was enjoyable to watch, well until the final few minutes....There was good use of language and if it was a book it would be quite a good read.
