Cyborg law enforcer RoboCop protects the citizens of Detroit by taking on a powerful drug syndicate, while a renegade OCP executive tries to create a new, superior RoboCop using a crime lord as its subject.
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 retired elite Black Ops Commando launches a one man war against a group of South American criminals who have kidnapped his daughter to blackmail him into starting a revolution and getting an exiled dictator back into power.

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

1:15:52 there is a news story that tells of two former US presidents who retired in Santa Barbara that was struck by a laser. Audiences in Santa Barbara theaters cheered at the mention of the town. See more »
When RoboCop pulls out the assault rifle to destroy the ED-209 guarding OCP Tower, he fires two shots. After firing the second time, the camera cuts to ED-209 exploding. When it cuts back to RoboCop, there's a bullet casing lodged in the ejection port of the rifle which the prior view showed to be clear. For this to happen, he would have had to have fired a third shot. See more »
The entire outer skin will be like this.
It's titanium, laminated with kevlar.
Go ahead. Shake his hand.
[the robotic arm extends to shake Morton's hand]
Come here often? How you doin'?
[cringes as the robot hand grips his hand hard]
Ow! God! He's got a helluva grip!
It's 400 foot-pounds. He could crush every bone in your hand.
All right, attach it to his shoulder.
[as the robotic arm wheels out]
I like that.
[Looks right into RoboCop's point of view]
You are gonna be a bad motherfucker!

Robocop, born of technology is a cyborg, half man/half machine. The future of Law enforcement is here, and he's kicking ass.
Alex Murphy was the unfortunate candidate chosen to be robocop after he was brutally massacred by a gang of scumbag criminals. And the robocop program was brought in, after the E.D. 209 (An all robot killing machine) proto-type failed so disastrously.
Alex Murphy, now Robocop is effectively dead, but he still has a memory, and sets out on a quest to avenge his own Death, by finding the scumbags responsible.
With some quite horrific violence (E.D. 209 and Murphy scenes mainly) and some brilliant action, Robocop is character that you will warm to, as he fights crime on a personal level.
Solid entertainment 8/10
