RoboCop

RoboCop ★★★★

I'm going to have to go with a shorter review then normal here, I've been struggling to write this one up all week, I think I've just seen the film too many times to break down my thoughts about it into anything cohesive. In Paul Verhoeven's story of a broken policeman, rebuilt as a crime fighting machine, we find a disturbingly plausible look at humanity's future, ruled not by machines or an evil government, but by greedy corporations more concerned about the bottom line then people's lives. I love the almost retro future Verhoeven has crafted here, populated by interesting characters and fun details, brought to life by wonderful actors and amazing special effects. Robocop is a sci-fi movie for the ages, easily one of Verhoeven's best and one of my all time favorites.
