    Spoiled rich bad girl heiress Pixxi De La Chasse (the adorable, buthopelessly charmless and obnoxious Jaclyn Jonet) gets disinherited byher snooty family and is forced to get a job as a repo chick. Sheproves to be a natural at the gig and sets her sights on nabbing atrain with a hefty one million dollar bounty on it. However, a group ofbumbling terrorists hijack the train and threaten to destroy LosAngeles unless their demands that golf is outlawed are met. Sound good?Well, it just ain't. Writer/director Alex Cox fails to bring even asmidgen of wit, style, or verve to the dopey premise. Moreover, themeandering narrative plods along at an excruciatingly sluggish pace andthe soundtrack is loaded with forgettable crummy songs. Worse yet, acool supporting cast is shamefully wasted on the lackluster material:Robert Beltran, Chloe Webb, Rosanna Arquette, Karen Black, Frances Bay,Del Zamora, and even original "Repo Man" holdover Olivia Barash. Thefact that the lead female character is an insufferably shallow andsnippy unappealing wealthy bitch who's way too similar to Paris Hiltonfor comfort doesn't help matters any. Shot largely in front of greenscreens, this film looks terribly cheap and cheesy. Only MiguelSandoval as laid-back and likable cowboy repo man supreme Arizona Graymanages to rise above the general tedium and mediocrity. Sorely bereftof the fierce punky vigor and gleeful nihilistic humor of the terrific1984 cult classic, this dreary dud is well worth avoiding.

    After hearing for years about the rumors of a sequel to "Repo Man," oneof the most out-there plot-driven insanely fabulous film from the 80's,and that it would be directed by Alex Cox, the godfather of punk films,I waited as delay after delay after delay came and went, and thenfinally – the promotional artwork for it arrived.

    Then I saw the poster. Oh my god.

    Was this a joke? Was I being punk'd by a lame over-hyped actor/modeltype on a now dead and useless music television show? Sadly, I was not.

    This disaster – this is the only way I can be honest and describe it -is somehow only tied in to the original film by name and just only amicrohair of it's plot included.

    I sad down and tried – TRIED – to understand the idea behind the scenesof this "creation," but was so overwhelmingly bad, so mind-numbinglyawful, that as soon as it was over I wanted to buy a gun, wait the 30days alone in my room to own it, and then go to the store, buy it,bring it home, open the box, load the gun with a specially madehollow-point mercury-tipped bullet, and then aim it at my head and pullthe trigger.

    I will NOT give you any details of the plot (oh yeah, right, there's aPLOT…) whatsoever, because anything I'd tell you would be too stupidto be believed or just too sad to describe here and make you enjoy theoriginal Repo less, as it has done for me.

    All I can say is that if you ever – EVER – actually find yourself in aposition to see this "film," please PLEASE be ready to be disappointed.

    I sat through this with all the hope and faith in Alex, but by the endcredits I felt more like Alex in "A Clockwork Orange" in full torturemode, and I lost my eyedropper of saline solution some time back.

    This isn't even worthy of fan submission sequels on any level. Therewere almost no original scenes "filmed" as it was 95% green-screen, thekiss of death for even the newest rookie of directors, and the acting?Positively awful.

    It was if Katy Perry was given a chance to drip her pink bubblegumpaintbrush of awfulness over some simplistic and sad video directing101 class at some suburban community college, complete with studentactors, veteran actors' talents who are completely wasted, and thenthere's Karen Black – ecch oh my god WHAT IS GOING ON HERE????????? Iwant to give it 1 out of ten, but that would almost insult anyone atthe bottom who earnestly tried to make a cohesive film and failedmiserably.

    This video "film" looks cheap, amateurish, and thought out with all thebrain power it took to push this out of their anus before flushing itdown onto Netflix, or whatever fools bought into this horrible horribleexcuse for "entertainment." I've seen fake Russian roulette snuffvideos with more thought out ideas.

    Sorry, I do feel really bad if you had anything to do with it,especially as an actor, because this has fail fail fail written allover it, and when you make up your resume for your next tryout for afilm, leave this off of it.

    This creatively bankrupt "film" will make you never want to try to doanything positive in your life ever again, and finally – please sueAlex Cox for your almost two hours back of your life, please?

    In the not too distant future of an alternate reality, a ParisHilton-like celebrity cut off from her fortune discovers she has aknack for the repossession business after joining a firm which not onlyhas cars in its holding yard but also factories, cruise ships and whatmight be a nuclear power plant. Enticed by a million dollar bounty on avintage train, she ends up in the middle of a terrorist plot to forcethe President of the United States to outlaw golf and become a vegan.

    This movie isn't so much a "Repo Man" sequel as it is a remake taken toridiculous extremes at the expense of things like plot, characterdevelopment and cinematography. It's loaded with references andparallels to "Repo Man" and at least 8 actors from the original (notincluding Cox) appear here as well. I got a big kick out of this, butit will obviously be lost on anyone who isn't a "Repo Man" fan andwon't appeal to many of those who are, so we have a movie that bydesign has been made primarily for the benefit of a small subset of thesmall cult following of the original.

    The movie is unique, however, in the way it creates the fantasy worldin which the action takes place. A surreal environment is produced bybeing filmed entirely in green screen with the floors and backgroundsadded later. Although the opening scenes are made to look almostrealistic, the movie increasingly uses obvious toy models and cartoonanimations as it progresses. Most of the film's entertainment valuecomes from accepting this alternate reality as a place which is atleast possible in our imaginations even if completely implausible inthe real world.

    The point of the movie, of course, isn't the thin, absurd plot but thesatire which gets leveled at many aspects of modern society. I wouldassume that the shallow and fictitious nature of the environmentcreated in the film is supposed to represent those same qualities inthe targets being satirized. Topics such as celebrity culture,heartless corporations, liberal activists and homeland security all getthe Cox treatment. Unfortunately, it's done without the depth,coherence and brilliantly insightful dialog found throughout "RepoMan". Although I very much appreciate all the things Cox was trying todo, I would still find it hard to recommend this movie withoutattaching numerous qualifications to such a recommendation.
