A savagely violent and still greatly relevant attack on 80s domestic policies, "RoboCop" has lost almost none of its luster.

Paul Verhoeven's ultra-violent blend of science fiction, action, and social commentary on top of social commentary remains relevant as cooler-room topical importance-and better than the well-intentioned but misguided 2014 remake. Unlike Joel Kinnamen, Peter Weller gives off the impression that RoboCop once had a human personality and conveys varying emotions well enough under all that makeup and costuming. Ronny Cox and Kurtwood Smith are having an absolute ball as the cackling bloodthirsty villains. The choreography of the action scenes is not as impressive as it might have been back in 1987; they still use stop-motion animation for some effects.

Memorable music as well as a good performance by Peter Weller, very well-directed action sequences by Paul Verhoeven. It falls out of place at some parts and the plot has more holes than there are gunshots holes in the movie, but on the surface it's good 1980's action fluff.

"I buy that for a dollar". the future Detroit is plagued by crime and the police are threatening to strike. When an officer is brutally shot down, a corporation steps in to create the ultimate in law enforcement: part man, part machine: Robocop. This movie was awesome with out no words, the Quotes in the movie was cool and remediable.

Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Yes, it's a cheesy 80's movie, but there are some themes that are still current, especially the corporate greed theme.

Some of the sci-fi universe created in this action thriller is a little corny, but the action scenes land hard and brutally. Peter Weller manages to convey the right spots of emotion, for someone playing a laconic robotic killing machine and Kurtwood Smith is slimy and hatable as the film's villain.

The action is brutal and gory. It also paints a grim future and is full of social commentary. A sci-fi action classic!

The future of law enforcement is a subject often covered in Sci Fi Movies from the good, Demolition Man (1993), the bad, Judge Dredd (1995) and the downright ugly, Mad Max (1979). Robocop is the finest example ever of civilization on the brink of anarchy and the methods used by cops to quell the oncoming tide. Satirical, Ultra violent and immensely entertaining, this is a film which quite rightly put director Paul Verhoeven on the map. A bona fide comic book movie for sure, but also one that is immensely intelligent and at times, moralistically thought provoking. Throw in some laugh out loud humour, religious allergies and excellent (for the 80s) special effects and you have a stonewall Sci Fi Classic.
