Paul Verhoeven’s seminal masterpiece gets a lavish special edition from those clever souls at Arrow Video. We all know the plot, which finds recently gunned-down cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) ‘saved’ by a big corporation named OCP and transformed into Robocop – the future of law enforcement. This film got so much right in its depiction of the future, and with a healthy dose of satire and some bloody violence to boot, this is a classic in every sense of the word. This new special edition also includes additional cuts of the film, a whole host of added extras, commentaries, featurettes, some nice printed lobby cards, a collector’s booklet and a poster. Certainly one for the Christmas list.
