Movie Summary

Director:
Miguel Sapochnik
Released:
2010
Rating:
R
Repo Men is the 2010 action crime drama that is not about recovering automobiles from deadbeat debtors. In the future, organ failures are occurring all over the globe. A corporation called The Union supplies its customers with artificial organs to keep them going again and help them lead healthy lives. But there's a downside. If you don't pay for your artificial organ(s) in time, The Union will send repo men to come after you and repossess your organs - even if you're alive. One day, repo man Remy (Jude Law, A.I., Alfie, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Road to Perdition) gets into an accident while on the job that leads to a cardiac arrest. He wakes up in the hospital and realizes that his heart was replaced with an artificial one. He can't pay for it in time, so The Union sends out repo men to catch him and repossess his organ.
