very good film, after 25 years still very fresh and an enjoyable si fi
@Enki812 this was such a perfect movie tho. the acting, the music,the effects(nothing over the top,seamless looking) i hate the new over the top cgi. one of the best scifi movies to come out of the 80s. one of the best period. big mistake to remake this, look at total recall,what a joke...
@SparkyKarl I was hoping they would tell another side of the story!
I seen the new trailer to Robcop to day, I must say I'm very disappointed you will never beat the original, I can remember watching this when In my childhood so to see what they have done to this film has really made me sad.
Best action of the 8o's! No, but nly because it was released with heavy competition.
Paul Verhoeven delivers this smart sci-fi with character that is more human than robot.
That's a damn fine film. It even has the dad from That 70's Show as a villain.
This movie has over the top gore and it just goes over the top.But despite that it's a great sci-fi crime movie that will keep you interested all the way through.
This movie is being re-made instead of the bastards paying money to come up with a new more rockin 21st century idea.... a prime example of what is wrong with the world....


Im not saying people dont have any awesome ideas... but what i am saying is stealing them package them with half as much enthusiasm . Only ends up being very shitty .. . FUCKING A
This is also another film series which I have been introduced to out of order (I watched Robocop 3 when I was 6 on holiday in Malta (don't ask)) and I have been told that this Robocop movie is the best out of the three currently made.
I did enjoy the movie, I have a lot of respect for Paul Verhoeven (though that was from watching The Black Book which wasn't the typical Paul Verhoeven movie) and though this film is currently very very dated I felt engrossed from beginning to end.
Avoiding the obvious comments about the likelihood of a robotic cop in the future this film is interesting for other reasons, certainly it contains elements of great switch your brain off and vegetate action; but also it contains a underlying plot that questions what it means to be human,the ethics of possible robotic technology as well as illustrating the dangers of private corporations (particularly relevant at the time).
Peter Weller certainly is convincing as Robocop but it has to be said that the success of the viewer emphasizing with Murphy is due to his performance as the pre Robo cop.
Ultimately though the film does suffer from the fact that it is a little predictable and the novelty factor wares off quite quickly.
In summary this is a good example of 80s Sci fi Fantasy and worthy of a prime place in ones DVD collection.
