  • Peter Weller stars in this urban sci-fi Western as Murphy, a good cop who literally gets shot to pieces while on duty and winds up reborn as a crime-fighting machine. An ambitious executive (Miguel Ferrer) at OCP, the corporation running the futuristic city of Detroit, fuses Murphy's torso with bulletproof steel limbs and rewires his brain with computer chips so he will have no will of his own. Murphy's former partner (Nancy Allen) tries to help RoboCop remember his human past, but his circuitry blocks whatever dim memories remain. Luckily, a chance encounter with one of his killers wakes up the human essence in RoboCop, causing him to rebel against his programming and commence on a one-cyborg mission of vengeance that leads all the way to the top of OCP. This second English-language film by Dutch director Paul Verhoeven is unremittingly brutal, darkly comic, and filled with bits of clever satire and pathos. A special highlight is the hilariously incompetent ED-209, RoboCop's main rival in the department of automated law enforcement. Considered by many critics to be one of the best films of its genre, ROBOCOP was followed by several sequels and a 1994 TV series.

    "...Chilling, at times hilarious..." - Recommended
    Premiere

    "...ROBOCOP is a shrewdly enjoyable movie..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...Gut-level humor and technical wizardry....Robocop himself is a fascinating character..."
    Variety

    "...This movie has a motor humming inside. It's been assembled with ferocious, gleeful expertise, crammed with humor, cynicism and jolts of energy..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "This sicko futuristic satire of corporate Detroit is the movie that got director Paul Verhoeven out of Holland and ultimately into even beefier Hollywood megahits like TOTAL RECALL and BASIC INSTINCT..."
    USA Today

    "Paul Verhoeven's finest film isn't quite science-fact, but its corporation-driven, fat-cat future is our reality."
    Total Film

    "Weller is excellent, giving his metal man a very human heart....ROBOCOP turned out to be an extremely smart film." -- Grade: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t remains a fearlessly over the top, endlessly enjoyable action flick."
