Best Robocop Has Ever Looked - Blu-ray Review,
This review is from: RoboCop Trilogy [Blu-ray]  (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.

Agreed re. mixing in all the reviews. I've moaned about it for ages but they take no notice. Had to wade through pages of DVD reviews for another movie earlier to find a Blu-ray review that described the extras. Very unhelpful.

Great review of the Blu-ray, yes it is frustrating that Amazon keeps lumping in DVD reviews with the Blu-rays and I wish they would take notice of there customers, but they never will because as long as they get your money that's all they care about.
btw: are you the same Pantheon from the Profiler web site?

I am the same Pantheon...but please don't hold that against me! I, too, wish Amazon would start listening to their customers. I also agree that that's unlikely to happen.

I agree with you mate it's just a pain having to go through all the reviews to find the version you want, they should listen to their customers after all we're the ones buying there products and it would just make things so much simpler. Also a great review which has really helped me out and made me decide if to buy this blu ray set and I'm now looking forward to watching the movies... Well the first 2 the 3rd was abit shocking but I'll still be watching it. Classic Sci-Fi

I have been pulling my hair out for this very reason and the other one, blu ray reviews in BLACK and, wait for it- yes dvd reviews in BLUE. Their good as that takes thought. And yes I did suggest they change it. I may be wrong but I think on Amazon. Com they have them the right way round. Might as well keep going, I got the film and the post was early that day so I'll give it 5 stars, aaaaaaaahh picture quality, sound quality is what you write about.
