Set in a near dystopian future, and a gory one, RoboCop is a blend of science-fiction, action and horror that is so genuinely unique you can hardly compare it to anything that came out prior to it. It is shockingly visionary, brilliantly written and shot with passion. The actors are compelling, always on the note, and they make wonders with the simple satirical caricature they are asked to play.
RoboCop's character design is one of the most iconic in film history. Call it cool, bad-ass; although over-the-top, the overkill armor answers to a certain logic because the story calls for a supreme police force, seeing as local crime rate is out of control. While the main antagonists are nothing more than gangsters, another robot prototype; a defective one, comes into play to pose a challenge.
The film is wrapped in tongue-in-cheek commentary on current society projected a couple of years forward. Politics, corruption, capitalism, syndication, theft, rape; all the evils of our worlds unite into one big threat for RoboCop to struggle with. The impeccable script holds up from beginning to end, with no slow or unnecessary moments, creating one of the best revenge fantasy stories out there!
