ROBOCOP (Theatrical Release USA 1987)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

Robocop classes itself as a low B-grade film. The idea is good, but it’s difficult to get past the seemingly uncountable acting and timing flaws. The largest acting flaw seems to be insincere actors who act almost ‘haughty’ in some places. The timing flaws include ‘cut to the chase to get the bad people and save the good people’ scenes with little explanation why the scenes occur in their particular sequences. The movie is what it is and is likable no matter the flaws.

Storyline

Robocop (Peter Weller) discovers the business that created him is corrupt. Within the corruption Robocop finds businessman, Dick Jones (Ronnie Cox), is one key to ending the mystery of how the Robocop came to be.

Additional Thanks
