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!
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.

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
Kurtwood Smith reminiscing about the filming in the summer of 1986.
Can really recommend this version for a top level upgrade.
I'd buy that for a dollar!!!
There are some nice extra features, including retrospective interviews, trailers and so on.
A worthy addition to any sci-fi movie fan's collection.
As a design, RoboCop himself is an icon, still featuring in videogames long after the end of the film franchise, but it's the constant internal presence of murdered cop Murphy which makes the character memorable and eventually overwhelms the machine half entirely. The opposititon of Murphy's wronged family man and the cackling lout Clarence Boddicker and his cohorts may strike modern viewers as stereotypical, even dangerously simplistic, but latterday action adventures are often so bogged down with pointless introspection and ruminative psychobabble that the last thing they do is entertain. It has to be said that the director Paul Verhoeven is as unsubtle as he's ever been here, and certain scenes of the movie, in particular the killing of Murphy and rival law enforcer ED-209's fatal malfunction, are violent enough to shock. The original cinema and video releases featured cut-down versions of these scenes, and it's amazing how the addition of just a few seconds can make a moment so much more unsettling.
Those who have never seen this movie don't need telling that the special effects will never dazzle in the way that modern, CGI-heavy releases do.Read more ›
And the film has not aged a single year! Coming back to it for a rewatch after many years, I was expecting to see with my now matured eyes a clunky corney looking Robocop - but no way, jose! The design of the Robocop suit, if you want to call it that, is simply awesome. You look at it as one might look at a prototype model of some new sports car from Lotus or Ferrari. And the Robotic miming of Peter Weller is spot on.
One of the greatest, most memorable simply unmissable movies of all time. A cult Classic!!!

This classic movie from the 80s is essentially an old-fashioned tale of good versus evil. And it is a tale told bloodily, and with gusto. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Big Cheese
Unwatchable. This has to be the worst Blu-ray transfer I've ever seen. I'd give it zero stars if I could. It's like someone's remastered it with pieces of potato dipped in paint. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Borachon
