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 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,
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

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 American network TV version made extensive cuts to violence, language, and nudity, often using alternate takes. Profanity is dubbed over, sometimes in unintentionally funny ways ('asshole' becomes 'airhead', 'scumbag' becomes 'crumbag', etc.), the sole instance of nudity is absent due to an alternate take being used. In terms of violence, many of the shootouts cut around the squibs. The ED-209 scene does not show any of the bloody bullet hits, and instead features a single front-facing shot of Kinney staggering backwards with no squibs or blood. Murphy's death is heavily cut, nearly all bullet impacts are missing - and music has been added to the scene to soften the screaming and gunshot sounds. Emil's death doesn't cut any of the scenes of him melting, but does remove the scene where Clarence disintegrates him with his car, instead using an alternate take where Clarence swerves around him.

This is one of the best science fiction films ever made. Unfortunately, neither the sequels nor a T.V series could top this entertaining mix of action,humor and emotion. Robocop 2 relied a little too much on action and not enough emotion. Robocop 3 could have been good if they had written a better storyline and script. The story in 3 just did not work out with audiences, and that's why it got such negative reviews. If there ever is a Robocop 4 i hope that they bring back Paul Verhoven, The director of the first. Maybe he can help bring Robocop back to life. The producers could not wait to make sequels and that is why they weren't like the original
