Movie Summary

Director:
Paul Verhoeven
Released:
1987
Rating:
R

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.

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Variety

    Robocop is as tightly worked as a film can be, not a moment or line wasted.

  • 75

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Robocop is a thriller with a difference.

  • 70

    The New York Times

    Paul Verhoeven, a Dutch director ("Soldier of Orange"), doesn't let the furiously futuristic plot get in the way of the flaming explosions, shattering glass and hurtling bodies.
