From the team that brought you TEENAGERS FROM MARS, and The Couriers comes REPO, an all-out action comedy about two small-time repo men named KD and Emil. Usually their job is repossessing cars from deadbeats who owe the wrong kind of people money. Today the job is different—the repo of an escaped clone. More specifically, its beating heart!
With a multi-million dollar price on the clone’s head attracting every hyper-violent repo team in the quad—not to mention the Clone Liberation Army—our boys will have to fight their way through an ever-growing body count just to stay one step ahead of the pack, snatch the clone and hopefully make it out with their lives.
Part LETHAL WEAPON. Part AKIRA. All AWESOME.
