Robocop: Director's Cut 18
To book, click a time above.
Directed by Dutch provocateur Paul Verhoeven (Total Recall, Basic Instinct, Benedetta), RoboCop is an essential slice of 1980s sci-fi, and a pulsating blend of graphic violence and social satire. Set in a crime-ridden Detroit in the near future, it centres on police officer Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) who is murdered by a gang of criminals. Murphy is revived as a cyborg law enforcer by Omni Consumer Products, a mega-corporation granted control of the overwhelmed and underfunded police force. Unaware of his former life, RoboCop instigates a brutal campaign against crime while reconciling with lingering fragments of his humanity.
A powerful critique of corporate greed and the economic policies of Ronald Reagan, RoboCop is a smart, violent satire, exploring constructions of masculinity and authority.
