Very entertaining
7 February 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

"Very entertaining" As making-ofs go, there have been some exhaustive entries ("Blade Runner", "Aliens"). But "Flesh and Steel" hits all of the important notes and keeps it a tight 36 minutes. Comprehensive, but succinct. It's a nice target to hit. And they interview crew members from all walks of production (excepting cast members, but there are other documentaries for that), notably Paul Sammon, Phil Tippett and Paul Verhoeven. You never hear about the troubled production like you do with other movies like "Blade Runner", "Apocalypse Now" or "The Shining", so some of the juicy stuff herein concerns the miserable filming conditions; the awful Summer heat, scheduling panics and Weller's troubles with the suit. But it's all part of the nuts and bolts of "RoboCop", which this feature does a great job highlighting.

Fantastic stuff.

8/10
