Format: DVD
You don't really hear a lot about Robocop anymore, but this really was one of the biggest films of the 1980s. For a teenager like me, Robocop was the baddest dude in town back in 1987 - and now, twenty plus years later, he's still pretty much the baddest dude in town. The film really hasn't aged much at all, which came as a pleasant surprise to me. Some of the special effects involving the giant Enforcement Droid (ED-209) aren't impressive as they used to be, and that one shot looking down at someone falling to his death looks absolutely awful, but everything else, especially Robocop himself, works like gangbusters. It's still quite a gritty film, with loads of realistic violence (vintage Paul Verhoeven, in other words). In fact, Verhoeven had to edit out some of the film's over-the-top comic violence just to secure an R rating (and the film was absolutely butchered for its foreign release in several countries). Even the political satire and emasculation of an overly exploitative mass media still ring quite true, as we intermittently watch a couple of newscasters smile and laugh their way through one tragic news story after another. And those commercials! The brand new 6000 SUX that gets an impressive 8.2 miles per gallon, all of the stupid "I'd buy that for a dollar!" ads, etc.

In this film's near-future setting, almost everything has been privatized, including hospitals and the entire police department of Detroit (now owned and run by the megacorporation Omni Consumer Products). The Old Man (Dan O'Herlihy) has long dreamed of replacing Old Detroit altogether with his own marketed utopia, but he needs to get crime under control before he can make Delta City a reality.

The 1987 classic Robocop is one of my all time favorite movies next to Scarface(1983), First Blood(1982), Goodfellas(1990), Braveheart(1995), The Exorcist(1973), Animal House(1978) and The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie(1979). When I first saw this movie in 1988 when I was 12, I was in for a time of my life. As for the first Robocop(forget the sequels), Old Detroit has become a violent wonderland of criminal activity. New officer Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) and Anne Lewis (Nancy Allen) are partners in a police force under siege from OCP, a company that wants to turn Old Detroit into a Metropolis kind of place. Whilst pursuing particularly bloodthirsty and disgusting badguys, led by the reprehensible Clarence Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith), whom had some of the funniest lines ever uttered by a villain in film, Murphy is captured, tortured, shot full of holes and killed. This scene is rather disturbing to watch for those who don't like violence. After his death, Murphy becomes ROBOCOP. Murphy now has a mechanical body and becomes a walking weapon of mass destruction! He in initially goes out to clean up the streets and uphold the law. However, the scientists forgot that he was human and Robocop subsequently has a flashback to the night that his human form was killed and is later haunted by memories of his wife and son. The nightmare sequence sets up one of the best revenge films I've ever seen next to the first First Blood. ROBOCOP then finds out the sinister secrets of OCP's #2 man (Ronny Cox) after assaulting Clarence and must do battle with the ED-209, an earlier robotic crimefighter design with heavy-duty guns and missiles. The rest of the film is great too. I can't give more away, you have to watch. Highly recommended!

"There's a new guy in town. His name's Robocop."

The above is what the creator of Robocop says as he looks over his creation.

In this movie, we get to see how exactly police officer Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) becomes the cyborg, Robocop. He is created just in time since he is now the first defence between the city ("Old Detroit") and a group of thugs determined to take over this city.

Making Robocop's job even tougher, is the fact that corruption extends into the upper echelons of the police hierarchy.

What makes this movie even more interesting is that Robocop still has memories or flashbacks of being fully human. As well, there are subtle themes regarding the media, corruption, privatization, identity, human nature, etc.

Beware that this movie can be quite violent but this violence is counter-balanced with comical elements.

I have to give kudos to Peter Weller's acting. Despite having on some hefty hardware, he still manages to bring out the humanity of Robocop. And Ronny Cox gives a tremendous performance as a corrupt corporate official.

As well, I found that the main background music added to each scene of this movie.

Finally, the DVD itself (the one released in 2001) has only one extra: the original theatrical trailer.

In conclusion, this is a sci-fi action movie that seems to work on several different levels. Also, it could very well show

"the future of law enforcement."

(1987; 1 hr, 37 min excluding end credits; wide screen; 16 scenes; rated 'R')
