Paul Verhoeven directs this classic sci-fi action feature starring Peter Weller. Set in the near future, Detroit's soaring crime rate is unsuccessfully policed by a corporation which plans to build a new city. When the new 'enforcement droid' proves unworkable, a murdered cop (Weller) is wired into a computer-controlled titanium body and set to the task at hand. Unimpressed, 'Robocop' seeks vengeance on all sides in this violent but often funny tale.
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 alternate Blu-ray edition.

What this product is which I speak of; is the remastered version of Robocop from dvd's standard editions, to Blu-ray and all of its more upgraded and most brilliant HD viewing and sound performance (if you are lucky and happened to have such tech, this title best enjoyed on large HD widescreen with surround sound turned up, honestly have to say. Worth getting the popcorn and the beer out for, this and the Terminator movies as well within that, far out totally ;-) ). What you get for it; more enhanced quality in literally everything. So if you happened to be a fan of the film, this is one not to be missed in your memorabilia.
There is corruption within the system, with no-one able to expose it.
'Alex J Murphy'(Paul Weller) is a well respected officer that has been transferred
to the 'Detroit Police Department' he is teamed up with Officer 'Anne Lewis' (Nancy
Allen) who'll show him the ropes of his new posting.
'Murphy' and 'Lewis' become involved in an incident, which see's 'Murphy' left for
dead by the gang led by arch-villain 'Clarence J Boddicker' (Kurtwood Smith)
The O.C.P have been trying to develop a peace-keeping Cyborg, as yet, not without
A opportunity has arisen for the Organisation, they decide to rebuild the barely alive
cop, part Human-part Robot, in effect a machine that can be programmed to enforce
the rule of law on the streets of 'Detroit' --'Robocop'
Unlike the Cyborgs that have been unsuccessfully tested, Robocop will have the
additional element of a part-machine capable of making decisions the 'Cyborg' couldn't.
Robocop makes an instant impact on the City Streets, Crime-levels are beginning to
fall, but the elements of corruption within the system and it's involvement with the
gang that had all but ended 'Murphy's' life remains in tact.
One thing the O.C.P. have not counted upon is the possibility that 'Murphy/ Robocop
has vague memories of his previous life, 'Robocop' wants revenge against the gang
that had more than contributed to what he has now become.
I have recently watched and reviewed the 2013 version of this 1987 classic, because
I hadn't seen this version for some considerable time, I could not honestly make any
comparisons, the new -version is perfectly watchable and does contain up to date
Special-Effects the 87' movie didn't have access to, however, there is quite a gulf in the
content between the two, this version has much more attitude and a whole lot more action
on-board, along with more graphic violence....not sure this would be given an '18' by the
'Censorship-Board of today, however, as mentioned earlier there is quite a gulf between
the two versions.
An Action-packed Sci-Fi Classic (The 'Cyborg' isn't that good on a stairwell)
Picture Quality --Maybe not the best at times, however a very noticeable upgrade on the
