An anti-crime solution of the highest degree, Robocop is poised to bring back peace and serenity. Set in old Detroit, a city falling victim to rampant crime and despicable violence, a higher level law enforcement option is desperately needed. As a dedicated officer and family man loses his life in the line of duty, so is born a dedicated enforcer of the law. Half man, and half machine, Robocop is the future of law enforcement. Robocop uses his high-tech weaponry to lift Detroit from its crime-riddled state of misery. Whether it be drug dealers, rapists, killers, or shop lifters, Robocop handles them all with a firm hand and a no-nonsense approach, but, Robocop is haunted by the memories of his murder, and the wife and son he's left behind. As he uncovers an insidious plot deep within the department he represents, he must deal with enforcing the law and maintaining his sanity.
