Editorial Reviews

Spoiled rich girl Pixxi De La Chasse has been disinherited by her family due to her numerous arrests for bad driving, her failure to get a job and her overall lack of some semblance of a responsible life. When her car gets repossessed, Pixxi ends up getting hired by repo men Arizona Gray and Aquas, and she soon becomes the best repo chick around with the help of her entourage - punk girl confidante, model-looks bodyguard and flaming hair stylist. While on the hunt for some antique railroad cars which carry a million-dollar bounty reward (also being sought by a secret government agency!) clueless Pixxi ends up on a wacky train ride which is actually a plot by a terrorist organization. If their demands for the criminalization of golf are not met, then the train (whose caboose is carrying long-missing growler bombs from the Soviet Communist era!) is headed straight for downtown Los Angeles. It's up to Pixxi De La Chasse to save LA! Bonus Features include: Movie Trailer & Featurette.

1.0 out of 5 stars What happened to the once great Alex Cox? September 6, 2013
By EJon
Format:DVD
I *really* wanted to like this movie. In the short period from 1984 to 1987, Alex Cox gave us the Repo Man, Sid and Nancy, Straight to Hell, and Walker (yes, I even liked Walker!). He's sort of foundered ever since, and I was hoping this might be his redemption. I was destined to be very disappointed.

First there's the filming technique. It's done almost entirely on green screen, and then set against backgrounds mostly made of models, many of them literally model train sets. This all seemed naggingly familiar, then hit it hit me: the great Alex Cox had ripped off Thomas the Tank Engine! I guess this was supposed to be surreal and artsy, but it just looked cheap and stupid. Reportedly, he did this to stay below the $200k threshold of the Screen Actors Guild. The thing is, Repo Man was filmed for $160k and (even correcting for inflation) looks about 20 times more professional than this movie.

Although this isn't really a sequel, he puts in a number of the people from the original, but this mostly reminds you that they haven't worked much since. There are also some fairly big name actors, like Patricia Arquette, Karen Black, Chloe Webb, and Miguel Sandoval, and they're completely wasted - with the arguable exception of Sandoval, who does a fairly decent job. It shot in 10 days, using what appears to be a rough draft of a concept for a script. It appears they also did it Ed Wood style, always using the first take.

The plot is a weird mix of heavy handed social commentary and a desperate attempt to capture the quirky magic of Repo man, and it fails at both. Because it's trying so hard, it also fall short in the "so bad it's good" category.

Finally, the music, or lack of it.

1.0 out of 5 stars beyond bad April 25, 2013
Format:DVD
This is at a level of bad that is somewhat difficult to believe. Its a badly written script done against green screens with crude visual effects thrown in. Even bad television has higher production values than this thing. A Paris Hilton clone has family problems. There isn't a likeable or funny character in the whole thing. About every five minutes like clockwork the film delivers a bleedingly obvious political point. Its not funny. Its not subtile. Its a director reduced to exploiting his own work (repo man) in an embarrasing way.

I edge towards thinking that this was deliberately bad. That someone was going through the motions or a score was being settled or an artist was showing contempt for money-people and/or fans. Or else its to raise money for something else.

The budget was low, but not that low. The talent of the cast wasn't tapped at all. Sometimes bad things can be interesting. But this is a chore to even sit through.

2.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to like this movie, but . . . May 19, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Like a lot of people from my generation, Alex Cox's "Repo Man" was an important part of my life. This strange, nihilistic, cult-classic captured the odd mood of my time. Therefore it was only natural that when I heard of this I'd seek it out and give it a look over.
Unfortunately I was very disappointed.
There's just not much to this movie. Filmed quickly, the script seemed to lack much in the way of mood, meaning or point. The dialogue often seems pointless and it was difficult for me to really see what it was aimed at commenting on. (Ok, there's economic problems, see, and a growing gap between the rich and poor, but, and I think this is where the film diverged a bit from Repo Man, nobody really seemed to be attached to the problem in a spiritual sense. Their actions may have resulted from the situation but their personalities did not seem to have been created in response to the setting.)
All in all, a great disappointment that was 25 years in the making. I wish it had been better.

1.0 out of 5 stars You may be sorely disappointed! April 3, 2011
By Mr. B
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are expected a sequel to Repo Man you will be sorely disappointed.

This move is an odd work of art and I don't mean that in a good way.
It was mostly shot in front of green screens with the backgrounds added after. The characters are weird and almost cartoonish and nothing is taken very seriously in this art movie, quiet the opposite of Repo Man. After you watch the movie you may grasp some concept of what the background setting is, as a character did at the end, but you are really only left confused and wondering why.

A few of the actors in Repo Man appear in the movie, but all that does is give it something in common with Plan 9 From Outer Space. Although it was comforting to hear Olivia Barash's (Leila) raspy voice in a cameo towards the end.

So unless your are some weird fan of Alex Cox creations, I would not buy this thing. There's a reason it never made it into the theaters.

Geez, 12 minutes into this film and I was about to run to the bathroom to throw up twice. Only someone as ignorant as the people are in this film, would see something enjoyable about this film.

Just when I thought that I've seen the stupidest movie ever imagined (examples: Tropic Thunder, Postal, etc.), I see something new that takes the lead.

How could such a reasonably attractive female (Jaclyn Jonet) allow herself to participate in such a stupid film? Didn't she read the script first, or could it be true that she's too stupid to read? Because she acted so unquestionably stupid that I thought that was just natural for her character because she played "stupid" so well.

If I had a son that acted like any of these retards in the film, I would have had that child of mine "put down", so to speak.

Well, I had the self-forced, brain-hemorrhaging, patience to watch this film for about 45 minutes before I screamed "I can't take this anymore!", and darn near broke my DVD player removing this rented DVD from my disc player.

This movie was totally retarded! I'm embarrassed to even say that I rented this film. What a wasted three days between Netflix DVD rentals. I need a healthy educational documentary to bring me back to my senses and to flush the memory of this garbage-laden movie from my thoughts.
