For sheer entertainment value, this almost can't be beat. The best sci fi satire of the 80s. Horrible deaths, endless hilarious quotes, great characters, and a beating heart of allegorical subtext to flesh out the intelligent politicizing. It's tight, short, without filler, over the top but still thinking, and has endless replay value. Its' cult following is well deserved. Did I mention the brilliant score - or the parade of smashed windows? Just see this gem.

Amazing fast-paced sci-fi action, full of humour, great dialogue and beautifully drawn characters: even the minor parts and quirky and memorable. The story is so involving and entertaining that it hides how multi-layered it is: it's not only a great satire of modernity and corporatism, it's also an existentialist metaphor for the search for self, a commentary on a man struggling to come to terms with his place in a mechanised world, and an allegory of the Christian death and resurrection.

A satirical look at the future and commercialisation of everything. Violence is rife and the only way is to create a super-cop...brilliant! Such a great 80's movie!

A good representation of 80's sci-fi movies. It has a charm to it that can never be matched. I'd most certainly buy this for a dollar.

One of the best action movies of the 80's let alone the entire genre. And the cherry on top is that Red Foreman is the bad guy.

Violent SciFi action-cop film but with (still relevant) satire. Great fun, and the effects have aged surprisingly well. 8/10.

For nostalgia's sake, we sat down to watch Robocop and... it still works! Sure, it's the kind of gratuitous 80s sex'n'violence Paul Verhoeven always delights in, but Robocop stands out as one of his few good movies. I was surprised as the interesting compositions and subtext, for example.

Enjoyable enough. Lot's of window smashing. Reminds me of the new Dredd in someways, not least with the strong female sidekick.

I liked the premise, thought they did a terrific job creating the environment of that version of Detroit and I liked the cast (particularly Kurtwood Smith and Nancy Allen). The story is much more simplistic than I had hoped, though, and I was disappointed that the finale devolves into a generic 80s action flick complete with the protagonist becoming an anti-hero. Seriously, he can just disregard his programming--and more importantly, the law--to become a summary executioner and we're supposed to cheer this?

Stupid violent movie with gratuitous foul language. I saw the satire but it was overshadowed by the violence.
