Follow in the footsteps of Jude Law! Be a REPO MAN online!

Up until a couple of weeks ago, I thought the forthcoming REPOMEN film was a remake of the cult classic. I know, I know, that was REPO MAN and not MEN, but the older you get, the more confused you get.
In the futuristic action-thriller “Repo Men,” 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.

Jude Law plays Remy, 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 (Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker), to track him down.

Now that the hunter has become the hunted, Remy joins Beth (Alice Braga), another debtor who teaches him how to vanish from the system. And as he and Jake embark on a chase across a landscape populated by maniacal friends and foes, one man will become a reluctant champion for thousands on the run.

The film is based on the novel “The Repossession Mambo” by Eric Garcia.

Knowing this, my interest has sky-rocketed! Garcia is a gifted, entertaining author and Forrest Whitaker is a fav of mine! So we have the pretty boy (Law) and the Oscar-winning actor (Forrest) in a film based on a book by a very talented writer (Garcia). Now I am not saying that Law isn’t as talented as he is pretty, but Forrest is the freakin’ man! An actor’s actor, a thespian of the highest order.

And Eric, I am sure you are lovely as well.

To get you primed for the film (which hits theaters on March 19th), the makers of the film have put a nifty (and mildy messed up) game online. You can take the role of a Repo Man and harvest organs. Who has not wanted to do that??

REPO MEN COMETH: It is your job to collect artiforge as they are overdue. Don’t harm the innocent civilians and be sure to play nice with Union’s paying customers.
If you are of a cracked nature, check out the game.
