With a poorly conceived story and even worse twist, I can't recommend this film
Saw it in Russia, in Russian. I think that made it more fun (12/18/2011)
Pretty gnarly film that keeps getting crazier until the gloriously bloody finale.
Good movie until the end. That final scene is disgusting.
Repo Men is a 2010 science fiction action-thriller film directed by Miguel Sapochnik, and starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker. It is based on the novel Repossession Mambo by Eric Garcia. In 2025, a corporation called "The Union" has perfected the creation of bio-mechanical organs, which are available to those with money or "good credit". If a customer falls three months behind on payments, a "repo-man" is sent to reclaim the artificial organ. The process of the repossession almost always results in the death of the customer. Remy (Jude Law) and his partner Jake Freivald (Forest Whitaker) are considered the best of the Union's repo men, though this causes personal issues between Remy and his wife, Carol (Carice van Houten), causing Remy to request a transfer to sales. At his final repossession job, Remy is wounded and forced to receive an artificial heart, which his sales job can not hope to pay for, forcing him back into repo.
