Ken Russell called it “the greatest science-fiction film since METROPOLIS.” He wasn't kidding. The single greatest American theatrical motion picture experience ever realized, controversial director Paul Verhoeven ('Total Recall,' 'Soldier of Orange') brought 'Robocop' to life as an effects-laden work of science fiction with a satirical edge that has since become a cult classic phenomenon.
'Robocop' features a resurrected and roboticized hero (Peter Weller) in a supercharged cyborg body, struggling to reclaim his memory and avenge his own death. Written by Ed Neumeier ('Starship Troopers') and Michael Miner ('Book of Stars'), the film is a grown-up superhero fantasy come to vivid, bloody life.
