From Amazon.co.uk

When it arrived on the big screen in 1987, Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop was like a high-voltage jolt of electricity, blending satire, thrills, and abundant violence with such energized gusto that audiences couldn't help feeling stunned and amazed. The movie was a huge hit, and has since earned enduring cult status as one of the seminal science fiction films of the 1980s. Followed by two sequels, a TV series, and countless novels and comic books, this original RoboCop is still the best by far, largely due to the audacity and unbridled bloodlust of director Verhoeven. However, the reasons many enjoyed the film are also the reasons some will surely wish to avoid it. Critic Pauline Kael called the movie a dubious example of "gallows pulp," and there's no denying that its view of mankind is bleak, depraved, and graphically violent. In the Detroit of the near future, a policeman (Peter Weller) is brutally gunned down by drug-dealing thugs and left for dead, but he survives (half of him, at least) and is integrated with state-of-the-art technology to become a half-robotic cop of the future, designed to revolutionize law enforcement. As RoboCop holds tight to his last remaining shred of humanity, he relentlessly pursues the criminals who "killed" him. All the while, Verhoeven (from a script by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner) injects this high-intensity tale with wickedly pointed humour and satire aimed at the men and media who cover a city out of control. --Jeff Shannon, amazon.com

Product Description

The future of law enforcement meets the ultimate high-definition experience — the newly remastered director’s cut on Blu-ray for spectacular image quality! When a good cop (Peter Weller) gets blown away by ruthless thugs, innovative scientists and doctors piece him back together as an unstoppable crime-fighting cyborg called Robocop. But while cleaning up the streets of violence-ravaged Detroit, Robocop is tormented by memories of his former life, and now he’s out for more than justice...he wants revenge!

By Fleece
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a much better transfer than the previous blu-ray release.
Same length also though it says Director's Cut.
Also one of the best sci-fi movies of the 80's that have more than quotable lines and memorable characters.

The Q&A was interesting and the villains of old Detroit has new interviews with the likes of
Kurtwood Smith reminiscing about the filming in the summer of 1986.
Can really recommend this version for a top level upgrade.
I'd buy that for a dollar!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars At last - a deserving Blu-ray release! 1 Feb 2014
By J. Bell
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The image quality is fantastic, the restoration is outstanding and the sound quality (DTS HD) is faultless throughout.

There are some nice extra features, including retrospective interviews, trailers and so on.

A worthy addition to any sci-fi movie fan's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robocop Blu-ray report 5 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
New transfer is fantastic on Blu-ray and much better than the previous effort.
It also comes with tons of special features, old and new as well as commentaries. Go ahead and buy this, its about the same price as a cinema ticket but 10 times better than the new robocop

By growly
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'm sure I'm not the only one that has bought this movie more times that I'd care to admit, from VHS,, Criterion DVD, blu ray, remastered blu ray and various DVD and blu ray steelbook versions.

The remastered blu ray steelbook has attracted some justified criticism for the artwork. But overall this is a delightful release. The remastered blu ray isn't perfect, but this is an old fairly low budget movie; the remastered version makes your older blu ray look dark and muddy. The audio is 5.1 DTS HD; purists may actually prefer the older blu ray's 4.0 soundtrack that mimicks the theatrical dolby surround mix.

This is the 'unrated' version of the movie - and it is region free, so international buyers can buy without fear of disc/player incompatibility.

There was a limited edition steelbook of the older blu ray; its difficult to find now. Overall this is the version of the movie to buy. You have a great remaster of an iconic movie packaged in a very nice steelbook (with some questionable artwork).

5.0 out of 5 stars The eighties - the golden age of action sci-fi 3 Jun 2004
Format:DVD
RoboCop first burst onto cinema screens when I was just twelve years old, and 18-rated movies had all the allure of adult freedom. Of course, like many other such films, including Arnold Schwarzenegger's output at the time, the violence and swearing which earns the rating is probably of less interest to grown-ups. What impresses me now is it's lean, tight editing (easily rivalling 'Die Hard' or 'Speed'), tongue-in-cheek, though sometimes brutal humour, and simple scenario of heroism vanquishing gleeful criminality, corporate greed destroyed from the inside, and human personality winning over blankly efficient technology.

As a design, RoboCop himself is an icon, still featuring in videogames long after the end of the film franchise, but it's the constant internal presence of murdered cop Murphy which makes the character memorable and eventually overwhelms the machine half entirely. The opposititon of Murphy's wronged family man and the cackling lout Clarence Boddicker and his cohorts may strike modern viewers as stereotypical, even dangerously simplistic, but latterday action adventures are often so bogged down with pointless introspection and ruminative psychobabble that the last thing they do is entertain. It has to be said that the director Paul Verhoeven is as unsubtle as he's ever been here, and certain scenes of the movie, in particular the killing of Murphy and rival law enforcer ED-209's fatal malfunction, are violent enough to shock. The original cinema and video releases featured cut-down versions of these scenes, and it's amazing how the addition of just a few seconds can make a moment so much more unsettling.

Those who have never seen this movie don't need telling that the special effects will never dazzle in the way that modern, CGI-heavy releases do.
