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).

First off i own the robocop trilogy and Robocop had a poor release with no extras anyway moving on.

This new 4k remastered version is the best Robocop has looked with sharper pq with more grain and more natural colours.

Sq is 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.

Special features are as follows.

Q&A with the filmmakers [2012]

Flesh and steel; The making of Robocop

1987 Features shooting Robocop and making Robocop

The Boardroom Storyboard with Commentary by Animator Phil Tippett.

Deleted Scenes; Villains of Old Detroit; Special Effects Then And Now;

Robocop Creating A Legend; Paul Verhoeven Easter Egg

Commentary With Director Paul Verhoeven Writer Ed Neumeier and Executive Producer Jon Davison

Theatrical Trailer, Tv Spot.

My verdict would be this release is worth upgrading to from the old blu-ray release for the much better PQ and Special features.

Format: DVD
With the marketing and talk about the "new" Robocop film (which I have seen and no you are not missing anything not a patch on this film), it's easy to overlook one of the more interesting movies from the later 80's period.

Paul Verhoeven sits in the Director's chair and does a fine job, taking a bit of a chance by veering things off the beaten track and pulls it off in style. Robocop manages to mix a blend of film styles which is usually risky, and often fails..it's a serious film at times, but with a strong element of tongue in cheek, notably violent in places (there are several cuts of the film on disc one being no punches pulled gore or language wise), sad and emotional, and yet funny in places too.

If this sounds like a jack of all master of none film, you'd be mistaken...Verhoeven pulls it off and very well. Peter Weller puts in a fine performance as the lead character of Alex Murphy, the cop who becomes Robocop, a strong supporting cast featuring Nancy Allen, Miguel Ferrer is the ambitious OCP executive who comes up with the Robocop design, Kurtwood Smith (who makes a convincing gang leader) and old hands like Ronny Cox who's the no. 2 at OCP and priming himself for the top job and in leagues with Boddicker (Kurtwood)

A special mention has to go to Jesse D. Goins who's gang character Joe Cox has a unique and infectious laugh..as well as some truly classic phrases during the film..: "does it hurt..does it hurt?" "a new toy!" (you can't appreciate this performance until you see it)

Story wise it's a blast from start to finish, but with attention paid to please all corners. Murphy's fate is sealed in unfortunate circumstances he then becomes the part man part machine Robocop. we then see him wrestle with his past..
