A more earnest sci-fi auteur might’ve wrestled with the existential crisis of a man who’s turned into a machine, a development that suggests the ultimate commodified invasion of an invasive age. With its stellar A/V presentation and bounty of extras befitting a film so defined by excess, Arrow’s 4K UHD Blu-ray is sure to be the definitive release of RoboCop for years to come. Three versions of the film are included: the director’s cut, the theatrical cut, and an edited TV cut.

With its 18 certificates, RoboCop (1987) was one of those movies that had people amazed by the violence at the time, the film became a cult movie and spawned 2 sequels, sadly on RoboCop 2 was with Peter Weller in the main role, there was also a couple of TV Series, Robocop and Prime Directives. That said, the nuance of the Oscar-nominated track remains evident throughout, from the whirring heel-gears of an upturned ED-209, to the satisfying schink of Robocop's fist-spike. somehow) be people who miss the considerable anticapitalist political ideology of RoboCop (1987), few viewers miss how outwardly funny the film is. This Ultra HD Blu-ray set affords a pair of remarkable native 4K presentations - culled from the 4K restoration MGM did from the original camera negative a few years back - for both the theatrical and director's cuts, on separate discs no less, further blessed with Dolby Vision.Like future Verhoeven mixtures of kitsch and art object, RoboCop is broken up into hard, tactile shards of action, from the stabbing of a thug’s throat to the splatter of another melting thug against a windshield. It’s the film that a lot of us still love today, with its story of a good cop (Peter Weller) who is murdered by criminals, in possibly one of the most gruesome cop killings in a movie in the 80s, who is then pieced back together as an unstoppable crime-fighting cyborg, who is tormented by the memory of his death and in turn goes out for revenge. As RoboCop's memories of his former life as Murphy resurface, only his ex-partner (Nancy Allen, Dressed To Kill) stands beside him to fight against the vicious thugs responsible for his death, as well as a nefarious top-level OCP executive orchestrating the chaos from above.

RoboCop, from Orion Pictures, marked director Paul Verhoeven's (Flesh + Blood) Hollywood debut and instantly became an enduring sci-fi/action classic when it landed in theaters in the summer of 1987. Obviously, the Neumeier/Miner screenplay described violent acts, but Verhoeven pushes violence beyond the point of shock and into hysteria. There’s a natural layer of grain present throughout, even the directors cut extra shots look like they’ve had a rescan.It's more vivid and vibrant than ever before, but tastefully done so as not to look revisionist, with some of the best elements coming subtly ( Robocop's own silver-grey titanium alloy suit has this wonderful purple pearlescent twinge to it). The theatrical cut that I grew up with is also accompanied here by the directors cut that I didn’t get to watch until many years after it’s release.
