This was a fun movie. Imagine having to be the guy that repossesses things that other people can't afford to pay for anymore. Now imagine if that was an artificial heart, or liver, or eyes or kidneys. Yes, it is that horrific, and yet, it is just a job. Imagine too, through no fault of your own, you end up with one of these things inside you, and suddenly you, a REPO MAN, can't afford to pay. Your best buddy is coming to repossess and you suddenly need help.
The movie is good, but the book is better. How does he survive or does he?
In the future humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called "The Union". The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you don't pay your bill, "The Union" sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its property... with no concern for your comfort or survival. Former soldier Remy is one of the best organ repo men in the business. But when he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the company's top-of-the-line heart-replacement... as well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his heart's no longer in the job. When he can't make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remy's former partner Jake, to track him down.
