Paul Verhoeven’s special effects-laden cult phenomenon is a grown-up superhero fantasy come to vivid, bloody life.

In a violent, near-apocalyptic Detroit, evil corporation Omni Consumer Products wins a contract from the city government to privatise the police force. To test their crime-eradicating cyborgs, the company leads street cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) into an armed confrontation with crime lord Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith) so they can use his body to support their untested RoboCop prototype. But when RoboCop learns of the company's nefarious plans, he turns on his masters.

Verhoeven's view of America caricatures extreme evolutions in capitalism, media influence, desensitisation to violence, gentrification, and our perception of heroes, each in service of a greater conversation about identity and culture - you do not want to miss the chance to see this back on the big screen.
