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.

Trivia

Note that Jude Law's character does not have a name (a similar situation in the book). The mystery effect was somewhat ruined when marketing inserted a name for him in the film's first trailer. See more »

Goofs

Jake and Frank are denied access to the reclamation room because they lack an Artiforg to scan and are forced to scavenge one from a dead guard, despite being surrounded by dead Repo men who presumably had numerous reclaimed Artiforgs already in their possession. See more »

pretty intense and definitely worth seeing
23 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, being a fan of action and mediocre movies in general, i was pumped when i saw the previews for this movie. The film was not quite what i was expecting but was pretty much all i could have hoped for. I knew nothing of the book it was based on going in so i really cant comment on how it compares to the movie. the story was good with great action scenes and at times just plain brutal. this is much more a guy movie than anything else. Go see it, it was really good. The star rating does this film a terrible injustice, this is one of the few times i completely disagree with IMDb. This movie is action packed and extremely entertaining, take it as nothing more than that....
