RoboCop (1987) Review

To mark the release of the reboot here is the RoboCop original review. RoboCop is more than just a science fiction film about a cyborg cop, it’s a terrifying look at a future owned by corporations and it’s soaked in political satire like all of the best Verhoeven films. The acting whilst not Oscar worthy is still pretty good which can be hard to do in a film like this. The characters are creative and unique and I am not just talking about the cyborg even the bad guys are so entertaining thanks to Ronny Cox and Kurtwood Smith. The films dialogue is so fun and simple that it can be quoted with ease. The science fiction is fascinating and ponders some interesting questions about the future, but we also get some wonderful crime thriller with drug dealers and corrupted businessmen for RoboCop to take down in his own kick ass style.

RoboCop (1987) Review

RoboCop is more than just a science fiction film about a cyborg cop, it’s a terrifying look at a future owned by corporations and it’s soaked in political satire like all of the best Verhoeven films. I seem to have walked into a Paul Verhoeven theme here but that’s not bad at all. The acting whilst not Oscar worthy is still pretty good which can be hard to do in a film like this. The characters are creative and unique and I am not just talking about the cyborg even the bad guys are so entertaining thanks to Ronny Cox and Kurtwood Smith. The films dialogue is so fun and light that it can be quoted with ease. The science fiction is fascinating and ponders some interesting questions about the future, but we also get some wonderful crime thriller with drug dealers and corrupted businessmen for RoboCop to take down in his own kick ass style.
