The only reasons to see Miguel Sapochnik's Repo Men (Universal, 03.19.10) are a) the science-fiction angle, which gets me every time and b) Jude Law. Otherwise this mid-level studio film looks awfully familiar.
It tells the story of two "repo men" who repossess artifical organs - produced by an evil corporation known as 'The Union' - from the customers who can't pay their bills, no matter the circumstances. Of course, when Remy (Jude Law) is fitted with a new heart himself, the hunter becomes the hunted and it turns into a man-on-the-run corporate beatdown.
Now let the "which came first?" argument start between Repo Men and Repo! The Genetic Opera.
