The movie starts off with Pandy (a woman with a red ring around her right eye) and Retro (a man with a TV for a head) awakening on Earth no clothes and with no memory of their pasts. After deciding that they need clothes and food the duo go on a crime spree and car chase through the streets of Tokyo with shotguns, pistols, and apparent super-strength involving a completely bizarre NeckSnap martial arts move, ridiculous amounts of gunplay, a battle with a giant robot, and probably a hundred dead policemen.

Added DiffLines:

* TheUnfettered: Pandy and Retro acts as this while being the main characters. Their first inclination towards obtaining food and clothing after losing their memories is to cause massive citywide destruction to get what they want and instigate a violent police chase. They then proceeded to breakout by using other prisoners as fodder while slaughtering any enemy who gets in their way. They even disregard the death of their mutant son after no more than a few minutes of pondering.


* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: It's not explained how Pandy and Retro are capable of their unbelievable feats of agility, strength, and dexterity. It's assumed to be the work of the mutant gene cluster in the Pandy, but Retro's body seems completely human yet still capable of similar feats.

It's implied from flashbacks that Retro may have been experimented on by the Warden's father as a former prisoner, but this was not confirmed.
