So who’s playing the Emilio Estevez role? Jude Law? Forget it – this nasty non-thriller shares nothing but a similar title with Alex Cox’s nutty 1984 head trip through LA, and more’s the pity. Here, we’re in that gone-to-pot near-future so beloved of filmmakers, where Law and Whitaker (pictured) are pals and colleagues working in a debt-recovery department with a difference: they recover human organs. The film pitches friend against friend as Law ends up with a new ticker and darts about town with fellow post-op target Alice Braga in tow. Ideas, excitement and logic are ditched in favour of blood and gore – and there’s no fun to be had watching operations and knife fights. Law and Whitaker are disastrous in the lead roles. It’s a dreary and violent film that betrays its three years spent on the shelf.
