  • A first-rate production full of nonstop action and inventive special effects but what truly makes Robocop spellbinding is a superior script. show more

  • Robocop is a thriller with a difference. show more

  • Though Robocop is too well-crafted to be entirely loathsome, it's at best an amoral goof. Yet like the comparably silly Lethal Weapon, it cynically pushes all the right action-audience buttons. Better duck - here comes a monster hit. [17 Jul 1987] show more
