      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Repo Man is many things: an alien-invasion film, a punk-rock musical, a send-up of consumerism. One thing it isn't is boring.

      Georgan G Have to give this film credit for being very unique and a cult classic. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/20/24 Full Review Hagbard C The 80's Reagan didn't want you to know about. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/10/24 Full Review Khalid K So stupid, it's stupid. It attracts people who want to seem intelligent and so they find hidden meaning. There is no meaning here. It's stupid, not funny, stupid. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review noneya b I don't see this as pretentious only like a strange fever dream … it's really great aslftervyou respect how bad it is 10/10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review David B I have to watch it every few years, it's great with or without mushrooms! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/03/23 Full Review S R Painful and tedious. Once again the horrible shock value for the 80s doesn't pay off. I'm not sure why people liked this one, other than it shows you about the profession. Saw on Delta. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 10/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Carrie Rickey Boston Herald Repo Man is the saltiest, sweetest, most sublimely sleazy tickle in the Los Angeles ribs. If it doesn't convulse you with belly laughs, then you're a stiff. Aug 12, 2022 Full Review James Berardinelli ReelViews It never overstays its welcome and is generally a fun, wild ride, even though it may at times be difficult to figure out where the journey began and where... Rated: 3/4 Mar 28, 2022 Full Review Empire Magazine Fine, stylish debut from Alex Cox with some great turns from the two leads. Rated: 4/5 Apr 29, 2008 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation There are stretches when the only thing propelling this forward and giving it any pace is the Tito Larriva and The Plugz Latino punk/surf rock score, which sounds like Dick Dale went Tex Mex. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 6, 2024 Full Review Don Shanahan Cinephile Hissy Fit Podcast The quirky and punk 80s were good for something. Sep 30, 2022 Full Review Kristy Strouse Film Inquiry Repo Man is, if nothing else, one of a kind. This mash-up of sci-fi, humor, and peculiarities, is a cult classic worthy of its following and influential in its intrinsically offset experience. It’s freak, and that’s a good thing.
