Today’s movie of the day is Robocop directed by Paul Verhoeven (1987)
Starring Peter Weller and Nancy Allen. It is about officer Murphy who dies in the line of duty but comes back as a cyborg known as Robocop.
I have to admit this was my first viewing of this movie and it was totally awesome! Now I totally understand the phrase “I’d buy that for a dollar.”
This movie is set in a futuristic Detroit, where the city is run by a company who turned officer Murphy into Robocop as a way to get crime off the street and serve justice. However this cyborg encounters a flaw in his system when he is reminded how he died.
He then retaliates against the gang that killed him. This movie is well worth a watch!
