4.0 out of 5 stars Twenty years on..still seems very futuristic, 21 April 2007
This review is from: Robocop (Special Edition)[DVD] [1988] (DVD)
Some people will think this is just the average 80's action movie; in my opinion, it's a lot more than that. It makes a statement about modern society, by presenting a horrifying look into a future that maybe isn't as distant as you'd like to believe it is. The very essence of RoboCop himself(or itself) is a perfect cop, but with almost no human emotion; and that's what the government wants in a perfect cop, at least in this movie. Apart from the perfect future cop, this movie also has a few visions of the future of advertising, the future of buying a house, the future in board games, the future in pretty much everything that exist in or modern world today. Paul Verhoeven has a very interesting science fiction future world view, and he presents it very well in this movie, just as he presents a future war in Starship Troopers; whereas that's about waging war, this is about the modern police force, the police of tomorrow. Even if you don't care about the future view presented in this movie, give it a try; it's got great action too, some of the best for an 80's action movie
