Synopysis: Writers Eric Garcia and Garrett Lerner team with director Miguel Sapochnik to adapt Garcia‘s novel about a repo man named Remy whose body has been constructed almost entirely of artificial organs. When Remy (Jude Law) fails to keep up on payments for his recent heart transplant, his former partner vows to take back the organ by force if necessary. Meanwhile, Remy finds an unexpected ally in the form of his long-lost wife, Beth (Alice Braga), who has also been retrofitted with numerous artificial organs. Now, despite the fact that they haven’t seen each other since Remy joined the army ten years ago, the desperate repo man and his sympathetic wife attempt a daring escape from a man who holds the lives of millions in the palm of his hands. Forest Whitaker and Liev Schreiber co-star.
Review: Ok this near future crap usually don’t fly with me but this time it was worth it. This particularly story I could see happening. And the love scene was amazing. I would kill to be that girl. There is something to be said about combining pain with pleasure. Ok now I got that out back to plot. There is a lot be said about this movie and the futuristic take on it. I can totally see the medical field and insurance companies implementing something of this nature. They give you a new heart you make arrangement to pay. You can’t pay..you no longer get the harassing phone calls you get a repo man to come and cut it out and return it and pass on to the next idiot. It’s a totally insane movie but totally believable. It could very well be our near future.
