Good Action Film of the Future!

Along with the Terminator this was the best scifi action film to come out during the 1980's. Though Peter Weller didn't become a household name, he does an excellent job as a murdered police officer, who is resurrected as a type of cyborg programmed to fight crime. As "Robocop" he dispenses justice with computer controlled pinpoint shooting accuracy.

There is a lot of camp (some of it is extremely funny) which does nothing to diminish the serious drama of the film. Nancy Allen does a good job as Robocop's partner and look for the guy from That 70's Show as the evil villian.

Robocop (1987) was an thrilling science fiction comic book movie from Paul Verhoven. It's also a hard hitting satire at a society driven by consumerism, ultra right wing politics and a collapse from within. Crime is at an all time high,poverty is rampant, the streets are a war zone and the police department is being run by a corporation who only cares about the bottom dollar. During one incident, a decorated police officer named Murphy and his partner were in pursuit of a gang of ruthless bank robbers, …

Robocop is over 20 years old and even today many people will profess to loving this film, no matter what their age. This is one of the only films that I can sincerely say I can watch over and over again from start to finish and never get bored.     The OCP (Omni Consumer Products) have been handed control of the local law enforcement of Detroit and their aim is to eradicate gang crime before construction begins on Delta City. A mega city that is set to bring Detroit into the …
