For this special Flixwatcher episode Cathy and Dave from the Cinemile host Kobi and Helen for Kobi’s film choice Robocop! Robocop (the original Paul Verhoeven cyberpunk action film version of course) was the favourite film of nine year-old Kobi, it’s the story of futuristic Detroit where crime is high and the solution is to implant a dead cop into a robot. It should be noted Robocop is not suitable for nine year-olds!! Being Verhoeven it is almost excessively violent, a rogue ED209 peppering an unfortunate employee, Murphy being shot to pieces and the toxic goop incident being particularly graphic and grisly. Surprisingly Robocop hasn’t aged too badly, the stop motion effects from Rob Bottin still look pretty convincing and the performance from Peter Weller adds genuine character and empathy to Robocop. The plot and dialogue maybe haven’t aged as well and forget about the actual science, but it could have been much worse.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=105] No one loved revisiting Robocop more than Dave, not even nine year-old Kobi would have given such high scores! It’s no Back To The Future so a 4.5 from Kobi for recommendability, so much love from Dave (probably too much love) which brings Robocop an overall score of 3.87. “Excuse me, I have to go. Somewhere there is a crime happening." What do you guys think? Have you seen Robocop? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
