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.

an interesting idea for a movie
20 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

In the near future, a mega company called 'The Union' has sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs that can be bought on credit. When the customers can't pay, they bring in Repo Men. Remy (Jude Law) is one of those repo men. Jake (Forest Whitaker) is a fellow repo man and a brute. Remy has known Jake since childhood when Jake was a big bully. Frank (Liev Schreiber) is the cold hearted organ salesman. After a failed extraction with a faulty shocker, Remy is given an artificial heart. His wife kicks him out for still keeping the job. That's when he starts having difficulties with his job.

It's a fascinating sci-fi concept. The audience badly needs a reason to root for these characters. It takes way too long to get the story to where Remy becomes compelling. It could easily chop off a chunk from the first half to speed up the pacing. The visual style has a slight Blade Runner vibe added to today's Toronto. It's not the best mid-range movie with big budget aspirations. The effects are not up to the top levels, and the action could be better. So could the movie have been much better.
