Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 07/06/1984
"...[REPO MAN] is the real thing. It's a sneakily rude, truly zany farce that treats its lunatic characters with a solmenity that perfectly matches the way in which they see themselves..."
Variety - 03/07/1984
"...REPO MAN has the type of unerring energy that leaves audiences breathless and entertained..."
Entertainment Weekly - 02/03/2006
"Estevez chases a 1964 Chevy Malibu from outer space in punk auteur Alex Cox's comic sci-fi satire." -- Grade: B+
Rolling Stone - 02/09/2006
"One giant nihilism-smothered sickly grin, the film depicts an otherworldly Los Angeles subculture in the time of Reagan and nuclear fear."
Uncut - 03/01/2012
5 stars out of 5 -- "Alex Cox has never bettered his feature debut, a brilliantly off-kilter thriller-of-sorts..."
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2012
"Alex Cox's debut feature fizzes with playful visual ideas and meta-movie gags of the kind Tarantino would adopt a decade or so later..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/14/2013
"The desolate Los Angeles streets are characters, much as they were in noir features of the '40s and '50s."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton star as repo men who get caught up in a series of bizarre adventures involving G-men, a nuclear scientist, UFO cultists and revolutionaries. Put your seat belt on and enjoy the wild ride in this groundbreaking, punk-rock, sci-fi black comedy with all-new bonus materials!

Product Description:

Otto (Emilio Estevez) is a Los Angeles punk, a loser with no direction and no role models. But he discovers a code of honor and higher purpose when he joins a select group of latter-day knights: the repo men. As a fledging apprentice, Otto slowly learns the ways of these high-caliber, overmedicated auto repossessors. And when a $20,000 bounty is placed on a mysterious missing car, Otto eludes the police, feds, religious cultists, and other repo men in a frantic search for this holy grail. Could one man's destiny lie in the back of a 1964 Chevy Malibu' Alex Cox's feature-film debut boasts a clever, satirical script that combines the larger-than-life edginess of urban L.A. with a bizarre array of science-fiction conspiracy theories. The film also features a strong soundtrack by an array of early 1980s punk and new wave bands and a terrific lead performance by Estevez.

Plot Synopsis:

This cult classic, the debut film by maverick director Alex Cox, stars Emilio Estevez as a young Los Angeles punker named Otto. Bored and directionless, Otto becomes the protégé of a deranged car repossessor and soon matches his mentor in skill. They compete for a bizarre repo prize--a '64 Chevy Malibu driven by a lobotomized nuclear scientist. A unique, masterful blend of blue-collar character bits, satirical conspiracy theories, and edgy science fiction make for an entertaining treat.
