Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Paul Verhoeven was almost unknown in Hollywood prior to the release of RoboCop in 1987. But after this ultra-violent yet strangely subversive and satirical sci-fi picture became a huge hit his reputation for extravagant and excessive, yet superbly well-crafted filmmaking was assured. Controversial as ever, Verhoeven saw the blue-collar cop (Peter Weller) who is transformed into an invincible cyborg as "an American Jesus with a gun", and so the film dabbles with death and resurrection imagery as well as mercilessly satirising Reagan-era America. No targets escape Verhoeven's unflinching camera eye, from yuppie excess and corporate backstabbing to rampant consumerism and vacuous media personalities. As with his later sci-fi satire Starship Troopers the extremely bloody violence resolutely remains on the same level as a Tom and Jerry cartoon.

The inevitable sequel, competently directed by Irvin Kershner, thankfully continues to mine the dark vein of anti-consumerist satire while being reflexively aware that it is itself a shining example of that which it is lampooning. Sadly the third instalment in the series, now without Peter Weller in the title role, is exactly the kind of dumbed-down production-line flick that the corporate suits of OCP might have dreamed up at a marketing meeting. Its only virtue is a decent music score from regular Verhoeven collaborator Basil Poledouris, whose splendid march theme returned from the original score.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Robocop Has Ever Looked - Blu-ray Review 29 Jan 2013
By Pantheon TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
First: Amazon...stop lumping blu-ray and DVD reviews together - it's confusing and it renders many of them meaningless. Also, what's with reviews for VHS???? You can't buy them any more, and they look awful; so who cares about them? Just my opinion.

As for Robocop. I'm so glad I decided to buy this blu-ray box (despite the poor reviews). I've owned this film on VHS and twice on DVD and I can honestly say that this blu-ray is the best this film has ever looked or sounded. It's a dated movie with pretty shoddy special effects and all of that is glaringly obvious when watching this blu-ray; but if you love the film anyway that shouldn't matter to you.

Other people have listed the audio tracks, talked about quality, subtitles and the lack of extras...but what I couldn't find a reference to is which version of Robocop is in this boxset. Well, I've just finished watching it and I can assure everyone that it's the, far superior, Director's Cut on this disc.
So, if you don't care about the lack of extras this is the set to buy.

P.S. A request (or plea) to anyone who thinks about reviewing a blu-ray: Please, please, please, can you give details about picture quality, audio details, extras or your opinion on whether the blu is better than the DVD. These reviews that say "I like this film, it's good" or "I've just got my disc and watched it," mean absolutely nothing and are a waste of space.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the original.. 5 April 2011
By Will
Format:DVD
The original Robocop is a masterpiece, a brilliant film, I would put it up there with the likes of Terminator, Aliens, Leon and other great action films. The sequel is...mediocre but not bad, Robocop 3 is truly abysmal. This is only worth buying if you can't get the original on its own, which you can now. The original amazon are selling seperately is the 2003 MGM release which is the best version, surpassing even the usually untouchable for films "Criterion" region 1 release. It's probably the same version included in this trilogy only you wont have the embarressment of Robocop 2 and espeically 3 in your collection.

1-Awsome film, original and the best, I remember the first time watching this aged 13, i'm 29 now and i've just bought the boxset and it was like the first time again.
2- Not bad for a sequel, I really enjoyed this film, but not as good as the first
3- How to ruin a trilogy, totally rubbish, this should have had a better story line and Peter Weller as Robocop.
I have just finished watching the 3 films over the last few day, The next time I fancy watching them again I won't watch the third film.

RoboCop:
Amazing! Hailed by critics and audiences alike. Sensational effects(without the use of CGI) especially the stop-motion animation by Phil Tippett. ED209 is…well, amazing! A strong score and strong characters propel this unbelievable, yet be warned, very violent futuristic action movie along. It deserves 6 stars!!!!!
RobCop 2:
With less glamourised violence and a weak script, this sequel has little to offer except it's stop motion effects.
RoboCop:
It is quite astonishing to note that such a great original could have spawned one of the worst movies ever made. It has turned a series famous for extreme violence into a PG-13 kiddie adventure. The script is full of holes and clichés (the bad kind). I mean, Robot Ninjas? COME ON!
