Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: RoboCop is as tightly worked as a film can be, not a moment or line wasted. – Variety Staff, Variety, Feb 11, 2014

Fresh: Verhoeven's strong suits have always been visual energy and a Rabelaisan realism: a gutsy, jovial way of ripping through social systems. – Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times, Feb 11, 2014

Fresh: ...RoboCop is one weird and entertaining hybrid of camp and sci-fi shoot-'em-up. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Mar 7, 2001

Fresh: ...Verhoeven strives for bloodcurdling, darkly comic eloquence. He gives us heart with the hardware. Savagery with smarts. – Rita Kempley, Washington Post, Mar 7, 2001

One of the great movies from the late '80's

As a teen RoboCop was always one of my favorite movies (I saw it 3 times in theatres). I recently rented it on NetFlix and I'm just as happy with it today as I was 20 years ago. Sure, the special effects, although good for the day, don't measure up to today's standards but they are not horrible by any means. All in all I'm happy to see RoboCop on iTunes and I hope to see more of these classic greats coming.

One of the best action/sci fi/80s satire films!

I was 11 when the movie opened but couldn't see it until it came out on VHS. It was very violent, but I really dug it. Only when I got a little older did I understand just how great the film was on so many levels. Aside from being a great action/sci fi film, it was a great satire of the 80s and big business. But it also has a big heart, as RoboCop tries to remember his past.


This movie is a Classic!! Great Action, Very graphic, like the old 80's & 90's movies used to be. And VERY cool. Id love to see a remake of robo cop with todays special effects, and Peter Weller could even come back and play the part. But lets forget about the third movie, only Robocop 1 & 2 were any good.
