Excerpt: Synopsis: Alex Murphy - a police detective whose body is almost entirely destroyed by a car bomb - is re-born as a highly-efficient crime-fighting cyborg, the first produced by OmniCorp, an ethically-challenged military technology company that plans to make a fortune creating "RoboCops" for the American government.
Summary: 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.
Summary: "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.
Excerpt: So now I've finally seen this movie on BD, even after all the bad reviews. After seeing this, I can see why there's not going to be much re-issues on blu ray. This edition is probably the best the movie is going to get. There isn't much DNR issues or other post issues. Most issues just lie with the source film. The movie itself is really great as far as pop culture (everyone wanting a SUX car to the news segments).
Excerpt: Peter Weller stars as Alex Murphy, a veteran cop in the city of Old Detroit who is sadistically tortured and shot in the line of duty by Clarence Boddicker and his gang of truly hateful criminals. Kurtwood Smith's character is clearly an evil man, with no remorse or guilt for his ruthless actions.
Summary: 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.
Excerpt: A dedicated police officer is declared legally dead and reawakens to find that he has been transformed into a cyborg by a malevolent corporation. On the surface of it, Robocop looks like just another dumb sci-fi action film but beneath lurks a lot of clever ideas. The concept of an ultra violent law man operating in a near future society in which big business and gun culture has gone mad owes an obvious debt to British comic book Judge Dredd, as does its black humour...
