Robocop

Robocop RoboCop is a 1987 science fiction-action film directed by Paul Verhoeven. Set in a crime-ridden Detroit, Michigan in the near future, RoboCop centers on a police officer who is brutally murdered and subsequently re-created as a super-human cyborg known as "RoboCop". The film features Peter Weller, Dan O'Herlihy, Kurtwood Smith, Nancy Allen, Miguel Ferrer, and Ronny Cox. It received positive reviews and was cited as one of the best films of 1987, spawning merchandise, two sequels, a television series, two animated TV series, and a television mini-series, video games and two comic book adaptations. The film was produced for a relatively modest $13 million.

The Paul Verhoeven directed Robocop which starred Peter Weller in the title role is a sci-fi master-piece and will always be remembered as such. Despite bad sequels and poor television adaptations, the original's reverence and influence on the genre can never be denied. A recent attempt to revitalize the franchise didn't fare as well as hoped when the Robocop remake hit theaters to mixed reviews. More negative than positive. Most, good or bad, always compared the 2014 interpretation to the original 1987 classic. The following review will judge the film on it's own merit and will not be compared to the original.
