Reviews
When the law-enforcing RoboCop cleans up corrupt Motown, his victory is satisfying because he's got machinery and morals on his side. RoboCop is where high-tech meets High Noon.
Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
A scathing social commentary loaded with layers of metaphor not immediately recognizable to my twelve-year old self, I've been digesting thirty years hence.
Rubin Safaya, Cinemalogue.com
Robocop will always be a vital story. Whether a corporation brings us back from the dead with cybernetic technology or just sells our social media activity to their clients, they cannot own who we are.
