In a dystopian and crime-ridden Detroit, the police force is run by nefarious corporation Omni Consumer Products. When good cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) is killed in the line of duty by gang-leader Clarence Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith), OCP use his body in a new prototype crime-fighting cyborg. Robocop proves ruthlessly efficient when it comes to dealing with violent criminals, but is also unexpectedly hanuted by memories of Murphy’s former life…

Paul Verhoeven, US 1987, 103mins, certificate 18
