A fearless, globe-trotting, terrorist-battling secret agent has his life turned upside down when he discovers his wife might be having an affair with a used car salesman while terrorists smuggle nuclear war heads into the United States.
Jamie Lee Curtis,
In 2028 Detroit, when Alex Murphy, a loving husband, father and good cop, is critically injured in the line of duty, the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.
A veteran policeman, Murtaugh, is partnered with a younger, suicidal officer, Riggs. They both have one thing in common: hating working in pairs. Now they must learn to work with one another to stop a gang of drug smugglers.
Detroit - in the future - is crime-ridden and run by a massive company. The company has developed a huge crime-fighting robot, which unfortunately develops a rather dangerous glitch. The company sees a way to get back in favor with the public when policeman Alex Murphy is killed by a street gang. Murphy's body is reconstructed within a steel shell and called RoboCop. RoboCop is very successful against criminals and becomes a target of supervillian Boddicker. Written by

Robocop is an unbelieveable experience. I haven't watched
the film since 1988 and the other day I recieved it on
DVD. So I eagerly popped it in the player and BOOM!!! The
only way I can describe Robocop is ultraviolence. The film
is so over the top and out of control. The film speaks of
a future where big companies will run the governmental
defense. Those times are upon us more and more everyday.
Paul Verhoeven has made one of the most important science
fiction films ever made and it's a brillant piece of
