    "Great movie. Good price. Far out premise, fun to see with Emilio Estevez being so young and rebellious. Aliens from somewhere, (it is never even mentioned in the movie where or how they get here, why they are here, or what the hell they really are), get put in the trunk of a car that gets chased around LA by a bunch of Rebel Repo Men competing for the huge bounty the government puts on the car. They compete, race, fight, and generally cause havoc between themselves, and each other the whole time. Punk Rock Emilio, is the center of this tornado of chaos. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this LA Sci-Fi Social Statement. Great combination comedy, campy action, fun social statement on state of 1970's / 80's LA social conditions. If you are looking for a quality, moving, heart rending story... Look somewhere else. This is fun, campy, non-conformist, and if it is not a cult-classic already, it should be.

    "How about this for the plot: a rock-music enthusiast and a crazy repossession agent in pursuit of a car that is possibly connected to extraterrestrials. Never a dull moment in this film. I am surprised this is only 7th in this list. "

    "Very few sci-fi films would make you laugh like Repo Man. Mind you, it isn't a slapstick comedy. There really is a humor in some scenes and you wouldn't be able to help yourself."
