I didn't care enough about Hawke's character to ignore a big problem in the story's logic: if this future has such incredible biotechnology, why can't Law just get his damaged body parts fixed?
Because he wanted suicide. Obvious depressed character is obvious.

Just because technology is advanced in one way doesn't mean it's advanced in every single way

Is this a joke? Did you watch the movie? Did you listen to the dialogs?
They could genetically change who you would be while in embryo form, not change your physical characteristics after born, you think Hawkes character would have all that effort to pretend he was perfect if he could become perfect with their biotechnology?
And besides, their genetics advancements were all to the embryonic field, not trauma treatment field.

He destroyed his body on purpose because the expectations of perfection were too high. This is a fundamental aspect of the movie that should explain the reviewer's question.
Couple this with the fact the the biotech allowed Hawke's character to lengthen his legs, and it starts to appear that the reviewer might have misunderstood or not paid attention to the simple parallels in the movie.

The kind of logical progression your making in this doesn't necessarily hold water. Medical progress doesn't work in a linear fashion, it happens at almost random, for instance, we can clone people, but cancer is still rampant.

You're mixing up Jude Law movies. This is Gattaca, not Repo Men.

This comment is extremely uninformed. We can already sequence human genomes, although not as quickly as in the film. Altering the genes someone is born with is also possible to a degree although not to the extent seen here. However regrowing a spinal cord is a different matter. Although it is theoretically possible it is unlikely to be viable any time soon and may well still be centuries off.
