a western [but] also a punk road movie, a conspiratorial cold-war chase caper, a paranoid apocalypse sci-fi, a postmodern mixed "plate of shrimp", a hilarious Eighties satire and a wry lowlife rejoinder to Reagan's upwardly mobile American dream.

It's a one of a kind anomaly with Emilio Estevez at his best.
March 4, 2014
It's kind of a road movie and kind of a science fiction movie and kind of a look at those unsung heroes who repossess cars amid the haze of serious drug use.

It was 1984 and Americans were on course to re-elect a s****y, sadistic, semi-sentient president. In a f****** landslide.

A playful mood informs Repo Man, yet Cox also takes time to comment on the seamy side of LA, the crushing realities of living in a comformist society, and the problems inherent in a decade that so baldly worships Reagan, L. Ron Hubbard and TV evangelists.

A 1984 underground touchstone [that's] a creepy visitation from a fracturing society.

Half-shaggy, half-annihilating vision of a junk culture

Repo Man has the type of unerring energy that leaves audiences breathless and entertained.
June 4, 2007
Cox's style is a step beyond camp into a comedy of pure disgust; much of the film is churlishly unpleasant, but there's a core of genuine anger that gives the project an emotional validation lacking in the flabby American comedies of the early 80s.
April 9, 2007
The punk/sci-fi film to beat.

December 23, 2006
A sci-fi thriller takes a wacky look at a particular LA subculture and a zany farce with lunatic characters, including a TV evangelist who preaches against "Godless Communism" abroad and liberal humanism at home.

There are endless things to enjoy, from Robby Müller's crisp camerawork to a superb set of performances, from witty movie parodies to a tremendous punk soundtrack.
February 18, 2006
Right up there with the 1980s cult classics like Heathers, Buckaroo Banzai, and Brazil.

...the movie, more often than not, just comes off as strange for strangeness' sake.

Emilio and Cox topped out early with this dirty little postmodern classic.
