Repo Men is a 2010 American-Canadian science fiction action-thriller film directed by Miguel Sapochnik, and starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker. It is based on the novel The Repossession Mambo by Eric Garcia.
The film opens in a destitute ghetto and a man using an old typewriter. We hear Remy musing on the fate of Schrödinger's cat.
In 2025, a corporation called "The Union" has perfected bio-mechanical organs, which are available to those with enough money or "good credit". If a customer falls three months behind on payments, a "repo man" is sent to reclaim the artificial organ (artiforgs). The repossession procedure almost always results in the customer's death. Remy (Jude Law) and his partner Jake Freivald (Forest Whitaker) are considered the best of the Union's repo men.
