Part Man, Part Machine, All Cop.

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. Verhoeven’s peerlessly exciting and kinetic visuals were matched by a sharp script, iconic cast and exceptional special effects by Rob Bottin (The Thing) and Phil Tippett (The Empire Strikes Back).

The film takes place in Detroit in the not-too-distant future. Heroic cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai) is gunned down in the line of duty, only to be resurrected as RoboCop – a cybernetic mix of spare human parts and Motor City steel, and the latest defense against crime designed by the all-powerful OCP Corporation. 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.

Unsurpassably thrilling, unexpectedly moving and unforgettably hilarious in equal measure, the future of law enforcement is back in a definitive 4K UHD Blu-ray presentation packed with hours of brand new bonus features and exclusive collectable packaging.

The Definitive RoboCop Collection

Ok, i’m biased - Robocop was one of the first 18/R rated films that I ever saw, and has remained in my personal top 10 all-time favourite movies ever since. A defining moment in 80 cinema, the movie is a timeless classic of action and gore while philosophising what it is to be human, even if that humanity has supposedly been stripped away.   Arrow Films have created what is undoubtedly the definitive 4K Robocop collection. The movie has never looked better, and likely never will look better than this. Grain is prevalent, and even more noticeable during the TV sequences, but isn’t distracting. The HDR makes Robocop’s armour pop with a violet hue that I’ve never seen before. The Improvements also include the Director’s cut footage, which on previous Blu-ray releases that I’ve owned had clearly not been remastered. Here it is, and while it isn’t a perfect match in quality, it Is closer here than it ever has been before. There is a wealth of archive and new special features, including a very charming interview with Nancy Allen. And the edited-for-television version, which I had actually avoided till now, is hilarious. The set includes some fine art cards, double sided poster, a humorous sticker and a superb 80-page book full of information surrounding the film’s production, themes, impact and legacy.  In short, if you are a fan of RoboCop in any way, this set is a must own. 10/10, Arrow.
