"In this episode we discuss Repo Men—twice the repo men of Repo Man, one-billionth as good a movie."

Movie Summary[]


Set in the near future when artificial organs can be bought on credit, it revolves around a man who struggles to make the payments on a heart he has purchased. He must therefore go on the run before said ticker is repossessed.


In the future, medical technology has advanced to the point where people can buy artificial organs to extend their lives. But if they default on payments, an organization known as the Union sends agents to repossess the organs. Remy is one of the best agents in the business, but when he becomes the recipient of an artificial heart, he finds himself in the same dire straits as his many victims. With his former partner in hot pursuit, Remy runs for his life.

  • It was a boring movie that couldn't decide what it wanted to be, and the protagonist was too unlikable to have a believable change of heart.

Just for the record (or perhaps off the record), I would not kick any of you out of bed, and I would write slash fiction to that effect if requested.
