Review By: Scotty

Let me start out by saying I am a fan of Jude Law and Forest Whitaker and as I was going through my on demand menu and decided to watch this movie for that reason.  This movie is not to be confused with the 80’s classic Repo Man starring Emilio Estevez.

This movie is set in a future where people’s lives are extended by the purchasing of artificial organs from “The Union.” The problem is that these organs are expensive and many people end up not being able to pay for them.  When this happens in come the Repo Men who will find you and repossess their property at the expense of the patient’s lives.

Jude Law is Remy, and one of the best repo men, along with his long time friend Jake played by Forest Whitaker.  Remy is being pressured by his wife to go into sales instead of being in repo and as he was on his last job an accident occurs that causes Remy to need a heart from “The Union.”  The irony is intense as Remy can no longer do his job since the accident and now has no way to pay for his artificial organ; he is now on the list and the repo men are after him.

This science fiction movie was very graphic at times but I enjoyed watching the film.  I am not saying it is the greatest science fiction movie ever but if you like futuristic tales that mix in a little romance, irony, and a good cast you may enjoy this film.
