Plot Outline:

Otto is a punk who has lost his job, his girl and his future (thanks to his parents giving away his college fund to a televangelist). Lucky for him, he has found kindred spirits in a group of local repo men with big attitudes and unique views on life. When a Chevy Malibu shows up with a whopping $20,000 reward, the chase is on, but the car houses a dangerous cargo. -- Chris Kavan

2.5/4 

80's urban punk flick, fused with an odd comedic sensibility and contains a sci-fi side plot. Scenes flow in a non-linear fashion until the two plots combine in the finale. It's a weird sendoff with no real conclusion, but it works for this type of film. Some see a corny facade hiding political and other themes. All I see is an eccentric and mildly entertaining cult movie.

I gotta say, I wasn't expecting a whole lot from this movie. But, I really enjoyed it. I love how, at the end, it uses that wonderful 80's special effects. lol. But, seriously, it's a damn good movie.

I could not stand this movie, as it came off to be a try hard mainstream movie, that wasn't funny. Not to mention I can't stand sci-fi. Don't bother watching this unless your a teenage boy who enjoys movies like The Matrix. Otherwise, it will just be a waste of your time.

A product of the 80s for sure, but this is fun romp with great scenes of urban decay and crime, a critique of religion and a healthy dose of atomic fear. Sure, it looks dated, but cult films will never die.

"Repo Man" by Yojimbo

Otto is a white suburban punk in a dead end job, but when he falls in with a crew of disreputable repo men he becomes involved in a conspiracy to cover up the existence of aliens. This all sounds very sci-fi but Repo Man is pure cult film making, so anyone expecting rayguns or spaceships is going to be utterly bemused. Its formula of oddball characters, bizarre situations, surreal humour and foul mouthed dialogue will be familiar to fans of the Tarantino and Rodriguez school, but Repo Man was made when it was still a kindergarten. This is the film that made me fall in love with Harry Dean Stanton and his hilarious rants are one of the many reasons why this film is so special; even Emilio Estevez is great (and I can't think of one other good film he's been in), as is the rest of the no-nam...
