If you can't make your car payments, you lose your car. If you can't make your house payments, you lose your home. If you can't make your liver transplant payments, you lose your liver and sometimes your life. At least that's how it works in Repo Men.
Remy (Jude Law) and Jake (Forest Whitaker) are the best transplant repo men in the biz. When it's time to collect, you can be behind on payments for 90 days, they will find you and take your organ back. It doesn't matter where you are. You could be at home, at work, in an elevator or even on the street. In fact, it doesn't even matter if you are unconcious or not. And they seem to really enjoy getting up to their elbows in blood, literally.
Then Remy gets a tast of his own medicine. After an accident he gets a new heart from The Union, the company which supplies the organs and employs him. 90 days go past and it's time for him to pay up but with the help of Beth (Alice Braga) he comes up with a plan to take The Union down and set all the organ recipients free. Beth by the way has an organ transplant for almost everything in her body and owes on every one of them. So what's the plan? Watch the movie!
I know it's a bit twisted, but the whole slicing someone up to repo organs was sweet viewing on screen. I actually found myself thinking, "this is sort of sexy" during a scene where Remy and Beth are scanning each others organs. If I describe it fully, then it ruins part of the movie but because I'm not giving all the details I'm sure you are thinking I'm crazy. You have to see it (although you still might think I'm crazy). There was plenty of drama, suspense, action and more comedy than I thought there would be. I was in the theater with about 15 other people and I could tell they wanted to laugh at things but must have felt awkward. Not me, I laugh when I want to laugh. There is also a tasty twist that caught me by surprise. Check it out.
