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

In a 2013 interview, Edward Neumeier reflected on how the film's script is starting to play into reality: "We are now living in the world that I was proposing in RoboCop (1987)...how big corporations will 'take care of us' and...how they won't." See more »
The Shell oil station where Murphy confronts Emil shows corrugated garden hoses spooled around a steel wheel as hose coming from the gasoline pump. No gas station in history has ever used such a setup, with spooled-up hose full of gasoline and exposed in the open, as it would be directly against several OSHA regulations regarding the dispensing of gasoline.

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 ...

The title "ROBOCOP" reverse zoptic effects through the middle "O". The title turns into television white noise and zoptics forward, then cuts to the television station. See more »
The Swedish is also heavily cut. Most scenes involving shooting have been shortened or cut out, including the "death" shooting of Murphy by the gang, the shootout at the drug factory and the ED-209 killing a OCP employee. In addition, several scens have been omitted. The gang member who gets thrown out of the van, Emils' disintegration and death. See more »
One of the best action sci-fi 80s satire films of all time my number 1 personal favorite
RoboCop (1987) is one and the only one the original masterpiece RoboCop action sci-fi flick the 80's the best one of all time. It is my number 1 personal favorite action film it is right there with the Rambo films. This is ultimate awesome 80's movie one of the best movie ever. It is rated R action film with special effects, doesn't deal with CGI you have a lot of action blood squibs, business mens. Good cop been blow away and he is pieces together: part human part machine ultimate action film ever. Great Music Score by Basil Poledouris I absolutely love the theme for the RoboCop. Peter Weller is Officer Alex J. Murphy/RoboCop the only one. The film has a satire and a message in here.
You'll see lots of heavy automatic, shot guns, handguns and explosive weapons with multiple huge explosions, with thousands of bullets fired in this movie. Bob Morton (Miguel Ferrer) is the heart of this film and I love him so much.
They are now making RoboCop Returns which will ignore RoboCop 2 and I think it will be a horrible movie. The movie it self has heart and soul in it, the fact is you have a human being who loses his humanity and it brought back to life, he is resurrected and he is a superhuman super cop who once again regains his humanity and his trouble been robot and human. You really feel sad for Alex who loses his family and everything.
As film as goes when a good cop Officer Alex J. Murphy (Peter Weller) gets blown away by ruthless thugs, innovative scientist OCP (Omni Consumer Products) piece him together as an unstoppable crime-fighting cyborg called RoboCop. But while cleaning up the streets of violence-ravaged Detroit, RoboCop is tormented by memories of his former life and now he's out for more than justice...he wants revenge.
RoboCop is my comic book hero my childhood hero and the movie I grew up with it. This is the best movie ever my all time favorite action movie. It is the best of the best of all time. Clarence J. Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith) is really one of the best bad guys ever, you want to party with him. I love the 80's movies and this is my movie. I love the RoboCop suit design and I absolutely love The Enforcement Droid, Series 209, or ED-209, are a fully-automated series of peacekeeping machines created by Omni Consumer Products. The design for ED-209 is brilliant and the best thing off the film. I love it.
I grew up with this movie, it has a special place in my heart and I love it to death. Here you have everything: brilliant story, good actors, stunts, puppetry, models, and good Special Effects. This is Paul Verhoeven and Peter Weller's best movie from the 80's they ever made. I used to had this movie on VHS the Rated R version but over the years the tape was eaten from VHS recorder so that I couldn't watch the movie properly anymore. 3 years earlier I got this movie on Blu-ray Unrated director's cut and my Blu-ray player scratched and eat the Blu-ray disc so I purchased the director's cut again on Blu-ray and I was blown away with the movie how good it is.
You have great dialogues, one liners, great bad guys, wonderful actors: Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Dan O'Herlihy, Ronny Cox, Kurtwood Smith, Miguel Ferrer, Robert DoQui, Ray Wise, Felton Perry, Paul McCrane , Jesse D. Goins, Del Zamora and Calvin Jung.
I love that the movie it self's shows the future and the corporations that the city is lead by OCP (Omni Consumer Products). This is the best the only film of the sequels and it was rebooted and reboot failed to be a RoboCop film. Paul Verhoeven directed this film with joy and passion one of the best films of all time. 10/10 my personal favorite action film of all time.
