Called by Ken Russell "the greatest science-fiction film since Metropolis," controversial director Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop is a special effects-laden cult phenomenon. The film features a resurrected and roboticized hero (Peter Weller) in a new, supercharged cyborg body, struggling to reclaim his memory and avenge his own death. Writtern by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner, this film is a grown-up superhero fantasy come to vivid, bloody life!

"35 years after its initial release, RoboCop remains as biting a political satire as ever ..." - Douglas Davidson, Elements of Madness

"Verhoeven's view of America caricatures extreme evolutions in capitalism, media influence, desensitization to violence, gentrification, and our perception of heroes, each in service of a greater conversation about identity and culture." - Brian Eggert, Deep Focus Review

"Not only one of the most thoroughly entertaining quotable action movies of its era but a powerful satire of Reagan-era social policies." - Toussaint Egan, Polygon

"Peter Weller’s work as slain police officer Alex Murphy, and then as unstoppable law enforcement titan RoboCop, is a thing of peerless beauty." - Sara Michelle Fetters, MovieFreak.com
