A novel “The Repossession Mambo” by Eric Garcia – although also the screenplay said to be the source of the novel.
Eric Garcia, Garrett Lerner
Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Alice Braga, Liev Schreiber, Carice van Houten, John Leguizamo
In the near future a conglomorate sells artifical organs to the population for big money, and if they fail to pay off the debt repo men carry out repossession, usually resulting in the death of the debtor. When one of the repo men acquires an artifical heart he finds he can no longer do his job, and so owes the company and must go on the run.
An alarming number of scenes of organs being recovered. As the story progresses an increasing level of violence with martial arts, a variety of handguns and edged weapons. Some nudity and a bit of non revelatory sex.
You need quite a strong stomach to watch this without looking away, but in general it holds together. However it was not much liked by the critics and lost money. Maybe a watch late at night with a few beers – for nothing.
