In a violent, near-apocalyptic Detroit, evil corporation Omni Consumer Products wins a contract from the city government to privatize the police force. To test their crime-eradicating cyborgs, the company leads street cop Alex Murphy into an armed confrontation with crime lord Boddicker so they can use his body to support their untested RoboCop prototype. But when RoboCop learns of the company's nefarious plans, he turns on his masters.Written by
Peter Weller said one of his favorite memories of his film career was filming the drug bust sequence. While filming the sequence, Weller was listening to Peter Gabriel's song "Red Rain" on his Walkman inside the RoboCop helmet as he exchanged gunfire with various bad guys. See more »

Good morning. I'm Casey Wong, with Jess Perkins. Top story: Pretoria. The threat of nuclear confrontation in South Africa escalated today when the ruling white military government of that besieged city-state unveiled a French-made neutron bomb and affirmed its willingness to use the 3 megaton device as the city's last line of defense.
And the President's first press conference from the Star Wars orbiting peace ...

The film received four different dubs in Hungary. The original was made in 1989, the second in 1996. A very cheaply produced third dub was commissioned for a censored MGM television broadcast around 2006. Yet another dub was recorded for the 2007 DVD release of the extended director's cut. Several voice actors performed in multiple of these dubs, though often playing different roles. Outside of official dubs, there have been reports of at least two or three pirated voice-over versions, which received notoriety for their comically bad translations. See more »
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
