One of the ultimate classics of dystopian sci-fi, the violent but vital RoboCop transformed Dutch director Paul Verhoeven (The Fourth Man, Turkish Delight) into a major name in Hollywood. It’s also the first of two collaborations between Verhoeven and screenwriter Edward Neumeier, who reunited a decade later for the equally awesome, if initially underrated, Starship Troopers. “RoboCop is as tightly worked as a film can be, not a moment or line wasted.”—Variety… “Most thriller and special-effects movies come right off the assembly line… RoboCop is a thriller with a difference.”—Roger Ebert
