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.

science fiction at it's creepy best
23 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

I was able to see this at a preview and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a creepy, engaging, quirky, science-fiction, buddy-movie thriller. It had a compelling and unexpected story that was at times darkly funny. It's really a scary cautionary tale about the convergence of greed and consumerism with the medical industry. Oddly appropriate for the conversation about Universal Health Care that the United States will be having this year. The visual world that the film draws you into is very eerie, slick, modern and showy for the people who can afford health care and dark and grimy in the underworld shadows. Jude Law was quite a surprise - I've never seen him play a character like this. He did a great job at being both tough and vulnerable (and handsome). This movie is definitely not for the squeamish. But, if you like watching surgery shows you will love this.
