An overlooked and underrated masterpiece
When you think of Robocop you just think, "Cheesy 80s action movie with explosions and one liners!" but it's so much more. First off the pacing is great, Murphy becomes Robocop in the first 20 minutes, there's really no filler its all. The comedic balance is great with the two news anchors who talk about horrible things like how a satellite laser beam killed 113 people and 2 presidents, but keep the same tone throughout. Even though you don't see a lot of Murphy as a "Human" you still feel for him when he's brutally killed by Boddicker and his goons. Something people don't really talk about is the gore, the ED-209 repeatedly shooting a guy until there's just a mess of red also the guy who Murphy shoots in the dick. Its something i never got about R rated movies in the 80s that would have toys for children even if its super violent like alien. In conclusion robocop is an overlooked action masterpiece that needs more attention then just 80's action movie.
