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.
To foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a face-transplant surgery and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a ruthless terrorist, but the plan backfires when the same criminal impersonates the cop with the same method.
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.

This was really a great film, from the moment it began to the twist at the end. Jude Law really has become a class actor. Forrester is really menacing and lends his heavyweight acting presence to the role. Still, I cannot believe people are rating so low , do they simply not get it? Its a sci fi action flick, entertaining and a good way to spend a few hours.
(ie rotten tomatoes 22%!!! its captivating, thrilling and intelligent. The action scenes are awesome, really well crafted. Only bit that frustrated me was Jude Laws wife crackpot turn, I mean "a jobs a job" , right? well acted, good action, great pace, good twist , simply put- great film entertainment
