“RoboCop for the Future”

published 17/08/2013

Great action scenes, strong writing

Jerky effects for the ED-209

RoboCop (1987) "RoboCop" is a 1987 action film which was directed by Paul Verhoeven, who has also directed such films as "The Fourth Man" (1983), "Total Recall" (1990), and "Basic Instinct" (1992). Warning: Spoilers will likely be given during this review. Outline The film is 102 minutes in...

Paul Verhoven's deliriously satirical and violent action movie "Robocop" was unfairly and thoughtlessly written off in some quarters as a "Terminator" rip off, although it has very little in common with Cameron's relentless sci-fi hit. Notionally fitting the Science Fiction genre, it resembles...

Shameful sequels and franchise

"Part man. Part machine. All cop. The future of law enforcement. He's RoboCop. And in the near future, he's law enforcement's only hope. A sadistic crime wave is sweeping across America. In Old Detroit, the situation is so bad a private corporation, Omni Consumer Products (OCP), has assumed...

Great concept; direction; acting

Has dated somewhat; overly violent

In a crime ridden Detroit, mechanics company Omni Consumer Products (OCP) is looking to introduce the latest enforcement, the huge ED-209 droid (much like Star Wars' AT-ATs) to curb the problems, created by VP Dick Jones (Ronny Cox). However, when a test goes wrong and one of the board dies, it...

There's good films and then there's good films that defined a genre. Along with The Terminator, Robocop is considered to be one of the most definitive movies of Cyberpunk, a subgenre of Science Fiction; an exploration of man with machine. Paul Verhoeven's film is brutally violent, funny, and...

None

Paul Verhoven's 1987 sci-fi action film shares certain things with his later work Starship Troopers in its satirical attack on the gung-ho, gun-loving nature of mainstream American culture, whilst also taking pot-shots at the stranglehold of influence held by the mainstream media and large...

Lots of violence if you don't like it

This film is about the Detroit police force in the near future and them being run by a private company, OCP. It focuses around the brutal death of a police officer, Alex Murphy at the hand of Gang members. Instead of being left to die OCP use his body - whats left of it - to create a cyborg...

“Robot Kicks Corporate Ass”

published 12/07/2000

Good sci-fi yarn with plenty of action

Robocop is in some ways rather a prescient film, for at the time it was made (pre-1989) there were few (if any) films which featured corporations as the bad guy. As such, in Robocop's world we learn of the corporation, itself corrupt, which controls everything in a corrupt city through its law...

Let's face it, the 80's were crap. The majority of mainstream films made in that decade don't really hold up well now. They're all incredibly cheesy with a bad choice in soundtracks featuring bands who had big hair and loved synth's. You know the kind of songs that end up on those naff...

Director Paul Verhoeven's reputation was made on the basis of this slice of ultra-violent near-future science fiction. It arrived between the two Terminator films, evoking the explosively visceral approach of 1984's first while predating the corporate corruption plotline of the 1991 sequel...

One the best Sci-Fi movies ever made. Period.

Your friend then loses/scratches/breaks it. Do you: A). Not care, it'll be on telly again soon won't it? B)...

Good Effects, fun, voilent, blood, gore

80's clothes, hair styles, etc

Looking back on the 80's you have to remember Robocop as one of the best action/sci-fi films to come from that era, it had great special effects for the time and quite a humourous script. The story starts by introducing us to Murphy (Peter Weller), an experienced police officer who has just been...

Action, Acting & Robocops.

given a bad name by its graphic scenes.

I've had the double bill of Robocop 1 & 2 on video since before I was 10 and I seriously doubt there's a person on this planet that has watched either of the film's more than my good self. I pretty much know the script off by heart I've seen it that many times, for me it just doesn't get much...

Violent, a believable future

Too violent for some to stomach

Part man, part machine, all cop... RoboCop is a cult cinema classic of the eighties starring Peter Weller as RoboCop and is directed by the masterful Paul Verhoeven (Total Recall, Starship Troopers, Hollow Man). The story is set in the near future of a very capitalist America. OCP (Omni Comsumer...

Very violent

Paul Verhoeven's Robocop had a certain distinction whilst I was at college, namely that it was probably the film most mentioned as reference by my film-studies class. This was mainly due in no small part to my own devotion to the film at the time. From the outside it seems to be pretty much a...
