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!

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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

Can really recommend this version for a top level upgrade.
I'd buy that for a dollar!!!

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).

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.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 30 Sep 2008
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.
