RoboCop (1987)


Robocop-Wallpapers-5“Dead or alive, you’re coming with me!” – RoboCop

Number of Times Seen – At least 5-10 times (Theater, video, dvd and 18 Dec 2013)

Brief Synopsis – A murdered Detroit police officer is recruited as the first cyborg cop to clean up the streets of the town.

My Take on it – I really liked this movie as a kid and it was somewhat disappointing to see it again now.

I actually have some great memories of watching this movie on video.  When it came out on video, my bets friend and I rented it and watched it more than once on the same day and as 13 year old boys might do, we watched the gory parts in slo-mo.

Re-watching it now, I am proud to say that my memory of most of the movie is still quite intact and I recalled (and anticipated) many of the scenes that I loved as a kid.

The story here is pretty lame though and it turns this movie into a generic 80’s action cop movie.

I wonder how good the remake of this movie will be when it debuts next year.

Let’s hope it’s a bit more cerebral than this one is.

Bottom Line – Liked it much better when I was a kid.  It’s pretty much a mediocre 80’s cop movie.

Rating – BAFTA Worthy
