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.
