Of course, as ever, the image gets that added push from WCG and HDR (here with Dolby Vision too), which leaves strong black levels, and wonderfully represented colours.

Verhoeven never lets on as to exactly when his dystopian nightmare is taking place, but, from the current state of the actual city of Detroit to the scope of current police militarization, I’m frankly not sure this reality is any less dystopic than the one seen in the movie. Arrow has reissued their excellent two-disc RoboCop set on 4K, even going so far as to source new 4K scans of the trims that were added back in for the Director’s Cut (and originally taken out to avoid an X rating). The Improvements also include the Director’s cut footage, which on previous Blu-ray releases that I’ve owned had clearly not been remastered. Like Arrow’s other recent 4K release, 12 Monkeys, RoboCop’s visual improvement in 4K is more of incremental than revolutionary. More Man Than Machine: Composing Robocop (12:08, HD) – A tribute to composer Basil Poledouris featuring film music experts Jeff Bond, Lukas Kendall, Daniel Schweiger, and Robert Townson.Those of us that saw the movie back in 1987 will have a love for the theatrical cut that we were treated to, this Director’s Cut is the one that many of you who never saw the movie on the big screen will know about the cut as it’s usually the one that is on the Blu-ray releases of RoboCop, there are some extra extended scenes that increase the violence and gore, plus a slight comedy element that during my screening had a good few fans laughing loudly. Three versions of the film are included: the director’s cut, the theatrical cut, and an edited TV cut. Like future Verhoeven mixtures of kitsch and art object, RoboCop is broken up into hard, tactile shards of action, from the stabbing of a thug’s throat to the splatter of another melting thug against a windshield. These commentaries, taken together with photo galleries, storyboards and alternate scenes, offer a comprehensive history of RoboCop.

Verhoeven has the chutzpah and the talent to do whatever he pleases, reveling in a freedom of kinetics. Overall, since Arrow and MGM’s transfers are taken from the same source, there are only minor differences between them, at least in 1080p.It was unlike anything anybody had ever seen before, and, really, unlike anything anybody would ever see again.

somehow) be people who miss the considerable anticapitalist political ideology of RoboCop (1987), few viewers miss how outwardly funny the film is.It’s sort of like the action movie answer to his last pre-American film, The Fourth Man (Dutch: De vierde man , 1983), which magnified the audio-visual rituals seen in Alfred Hitchcock, Brian De Palma, and Dario Argento movies to similar extremes, all without losing track of the central drama. Heroic cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai) is gunned down in the line of duty, only to be resurrected as RoboCop, a cybernetic mix of spare human parts and Motor City steel, and the latest defense against crime designed by the all-powerful OCP Corporation.

A movie classic from the 1980’s that has aged wonderfully and is still just as entertaining as it was upon its release. The images on this page are taken from the remastered Arrow Blu-ray, NOT the 4K UHD and sized for the page.

The very weighty metallic sound of RoboCop’s stride is intoxicating—a promise of violence to be unleashed that’s pronouncedly fulfilled. Much like in my review of Arrow’s 4K UHD release of An American Werewolf in London, do I really need to give a synopsis of Robocop?
