  2. It seems very few readers have read my recent robo review. Paul Verhoeven’s “Robocop” may have been strong medicine during its initial release(1987) but nowadays it can be seen as a soft movie. It contains zilch sex, few gratuitous random breast shots, occasional substance abuse, but geez I just can’t abide all those reviewers who feel that the violence was too over-the-top, and thus felt Verhoeven had no confidence in the script. The script is nothing really special anyway. “Robocop” is NOT that violent, okay. It’s just another run-of-the-mill action thriller with not-so-nifty special fx and even worse violence. Verhoeven’s “Basic Instinct” is much better also. I watched it last night, and it featured way more sex and violence. The only thing that turned me off was Michael Douglas’s irritating presence. Not since “The Bad Lieutenant” has there ever been a cop that mean, ugly, masochistic, and foulmouthed. However, Sharon Stone was in it, and that alone overcompensated all its flaws. For now, I’d just like to speak out against those critics who feel “Robocop” is worse than it actually is. Most people feel it is an exceptional action flick with lots of action(and violence), nifty fx, great storyline and all-around actors. However, I think the movie sucks on most levels, and the violence is arguably tamed by contemporary standards. I don’t care about what others think. Watch “Basic Instinct” instead, a far more extravagant production.

  3. First, let me say that Robocop is anything but original. It is a complete rip off of the Japanese cartoon of the early 1960’s called 8th man. Many of these episodes were translated to English and aired on US television. It is so similar I have to wonder if there was a lawsuit.

    Police reporter Peter Brady is run down by mobster and a scientist takes his dying body and transfers his mind into the invincible robot body of 8th Man. He than dedicates his life to catching criminals. 8th Man was infinitely better and I highly recommend it to anyone.

    I know there some cool elements about this movie but. it is still a good idea in a bad movie. I think people are so enamored by the story and special effects that they don’t look more critically at the movie itself. It was a horrible movie. It was ugly, violent and depressing in general. The city’s denizens also seemed dark and not worth saving. It reminds me of how Gotham City is portrayed in the Batman movies. They portray it in a way that you feel who would want to save it. You feel they should just level the city and start over. It could have been much better.

  4. Now why on Earth would you buy this edition, if (like me) you were dumb enough to get the Criterion edition + the damn trilogy package? When the hell Hollywood will stop treating us as if we’re goddammed piggybank?!

    Wanna know what I’m waiting for, when it comes to Robocop? I’ve heard MGM were interested in remaking “Robocop 2”, but with Frank Miller’s uncensored original sceenplay, and as an animated flick! Now why didn’t I heard nothing new on that project?! Is it so goddamn hard to greenlight a production that will so obviously be MONEY?!!!

    Anyway, doesn’t look like I’m stupid enough to pay this new edition too… or so I hope.

  5. Robocop is okay. But I don’t really like it much. The setting is in Detroit. It’s about a cop who is killed and then is turned into a robocop. He’s then sent out to stop the bad guys while also getting revenge on those who killed him. I didn’t like it but see it if you want. You might like it.
