Great science fiction from Verhoeven

"Robocop" was what gave the world the robotic police officer that would rival the Terminator as the greatest cyborg film character of all time. Although, I'm not gonna take a side in that debate, but I am gonna give Robocop the recognition it deserves. He was something that was totally new at the time (1987), and since then the movie got 2 (crappy) sequels, a comic book and a mini-series.

Robocop is set in the future and portrays a very dark version of Detroit, and its crime level has gone up considerably. In it, a cop named Alex Murphy gets literally blown away by a gang of nasty criminals on his first day on the job. But later a company (OCP) uses his remains to build a mechanical cop in order to cut down on the crime in order to build "Delta City" to replace the corrupted dystopia that was once Detroit. Later on, Robocop makes a name for himself around the city, but unexpectedly he starts remembering what he was before his death, and through this we start to learn more about Murphy since we didn't zilch about him before he died. And this is how he starts to regain his lost humanity. And the first rule about making a movie with a robot for a character is that you MUST make it human in some way, that's the reason why Robocop worked so well and why "Terminator 2" worked so well. Towards the ending, after he takes off his helmet for the final battle, reveals his face. And a little later, after the Old Man asks him for his name, he replies "Murphy", this is one of the most heart-touching moments in science fiction which generally don't have moments like those. The symbolism in here is perfect.

Another thing that really got me were the bad guys. And the best of the gang is without a doubt, Kurtwood Smith as Clarence Boddicker. Honestly, I have never seen a guy who looks like a 50 year old pencil pusher to be so threatening. He delivers his lines with such ferocity and perfection that he becomes perhaps one of the greatest villains in the history of cinema. And his classic lines, "Can you fly, Bobby?" and "B*****s, leave!" will never be forgotten. Also, his crew is worth noting, Emil will be known for the gas station scene (probably the best part of the movie), Joe will be remembered for his laugh and his "Does it hurt? Does it hurt?" line. And Leon will be recognized for his hilarious expression he makes when the disfigured Emil confronts him and when Robocop pulls his hair in the dance club. And lastly Clarence will be known for pretty much everything he does and says in here. And all these guys are MEAN, plain and simple. They basically kill and hurt others for their own amusement and express no pity or remorse at all. These guys are as real as movie villains could possibly get.

The action is excellent, the gas station scene was [email protected]$$, the drug factory shootout was fantastic and the ending when Robocop takes out all the bad guys in the same place where they killed him at the steel mill is unforgettable, thanks to the Cobra Assault Cannons (forgot what they're called), but it's one of the sweetest weapons ever made up in a film.

The one liners couldn't have been better. "Dead or alive, you're coming with me" is a quote that should've been on the Top 100, but for some reason, it's not. "Your move, creep" is another worth mentioning. And the before mentioned stuff that the bad guys say are pretty cool to say in real life situations as well.

Robocop is a classic in the golden age of science fiction when we didn't have too many of that over-the-top, unoriginal crap that we're getting now. I'm gonna cherish this movie forever, and I hope you will too.

One of the best action sci-fi 80s satire films of all time my number 1 personal favorite

RoboCop (1987) is one and the only one the original masterpiece RoboCop action sci-fi flick the 80's the best one of all time. It is my number 1 personal favorite action film it is right there with the Rambo films. This is ultimate awesome 80's movie one of the best movie ever. It is rated R action film with special effects, doesn't deal with CGI you have a lot of action blood squibs, business mens. Good cop been blow away and he is pieces together: part human part machine ultimate action film ever. Great Music Score by Basil Poledouris I absolutely love the theme for the RoboCop. Peter Weller is Officer Alex J. Murphy/RoboCop the only one. The film has a satire and a message in here. You'll see lots of heavy automatic, shot guns, handguns and explosive weapons with multiple huge explosions, with thousands of bullets fired in this movie. Bob Morton (Miguel Ferrer) is the heart of this film and I love him so much.

They are now making RoboCop Returns which will ignore RoboCop 2 and I think it will be a horrible movie. The movie it self has heart and soul in it, the fact is you have a human being who loses his humanity and it brought back to life, he is resurrected and he is a superhuman super cop who once again regains his humanity and his trouble been robot and human. You really feel sad for Alex who loses his family and everything.

As film as goes when a good cop Officer Alex J. Murphy (Peter Weller) gets blown away by ruthless thugs, innovative scientist OCP (Omni Consumer Products) piece him 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.

RoboCop is my comic book hero my childhood hero and the movie I grew up with it. This is the best movie ever my all time favorite action movie. It is the best of the best of all time. Clarence J. Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith) is really one of the best bad guys ever, you want to party with him. I love the 80's movies and this is my movie. I love the RoboCop suit design and I absolutely love The Enforcement Droid, Series 209, or ED-209, are a fully-automated series of peacekeeping machines created by Omni Consumer Products. The design for ED-209 is brilliant and the best thing off the film. I love it.

I grew up with this movie, it has a special place in my heart and I love it to death. Here you have everything: brilliant story, good actors, stunts, puppetry, models, and good Special Effects. This is Paul Verhoeven and Peter Weller's best movie from the 80's they ever made. I used to had this movie on VHS the Rated R version but over the years the tape was eaten from VHS recorder so that I couldn't watch the movie properly anymore. 3 years earlier I got this movie on Blu-ray Unrated director's cut and my Blu-ray player scratched and eat the Blu-ray disc so I purchased the director's cut again on Blu-ray and I was blown away with the movie how good it is.

You have great dialogues, one liners, great bad guys, wonderful actors: Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Dan O'Herlihy, Ronny Cox, Kurtwood Smith, Miguel Ferrer, Robert DoQui, Ray Wise, Felton Perry, Paul McCrane , Jesse D. Goins, Del Zamora and Calvin Jung.

I love that the movie it self's shows the future and the corporations that the city is lead by OCP (Omni Consumer Products). This is the best the only film of the sequels and it was rebooted and reboot failed to be a RoboCop film. Paul Verhoeven directed this film with joy and passion one of the best films of all time. 10/10 my personal favorite action film of all time.
