"Dead or alive, you're coming with me."




The RC, better known as RoboCop, was a cyborg created from critically-injured police officer Alex Murphy by OmniCorp.


After Alex Murphy was critically injured when Antoine Vallon exploded his car, Murphy's wife, Clara Murphy, signed consent papers to allow Murphy to be turned into RoboCop. Only small parts of Murphy were used in RoboCop, including his right hand, face, brain, heart and lungs. Once ready, RoboCop was awakened in a lab in China in front of Dr. Dennett Norton, but RoboCop panicked and grabbed Norton before attempting to escape the lab. However, after the attempts to convince him to return failed, Norton had him deactivated. RoboCop was later awakened again and shown what remained of Alex Murphy by Norton. Horrified, he demanded to die, but was convinced not to. Instead, he had the armor put back on and told Norton not to be shown to himself or his family in the state again.

Press conference[]

While preparing for a public press conference to unveil RoboCop, Alex was emotionally overwhelmed and had a seizure while Norton was uploading the police database information into his brain. Pressed for time, Norton altered Alex's brain chemistry, lowering his dopamine levels until he no longer displayed any emotions. Under control, Alex attended the press conference, where he ignored his waiting wife and son, and efficiently apprehended a criminal in the crowd. RoboCop was a public relations success, and drastically reduced the crime rate in Detroit.

Clara managed to confront her husband as he was leaving the station, telling him about his son David's nightmares. Alex left, but then overrode his programming and detoured from his current case to go to his house. He reviewed the CCTV footage of his accident and realized that David saw his body and was traumatized. Alex pursued Vallon for revenge. When Alex arrived at his hideout, Vallon nearly succeeded in killing him, but failed and is shot by Alex. At the station, Alex arrested one of the corrupt cops and shot the other. Alex was about to arrest the Chief of Police when Mattox shut him down by remote control, and had him taken back to OmniCorp.

Sellars, seeing Alex was no longer useful and fearing that the truth of what has been done to him would be exposed, ordered Mattox to kill him. Norton reached the lab first and revived Alex, telling him everything. Alex, feeling betrayed, went after Sellars.

Sellars had the OmniCorp building shut down and armed with drones. Alex gained entry with the help of his former partner, Jack Lewis, and other police officers. Lewis shot Mattox while Alex reached the roof, where Sellars was waiting for a helicopter and had Clara and David as hostages. Alex's programming prevented him from arresting Sellars, but he manages to overcome it and shoot Sellars, killing him.

Alex's body was later rebuilt with his armor in Norton's laboratory, and then waited for Clara and David, who were coming to visit him.



"You gotta remember, it's not the weapons that count, it's who's handling them, or, in your case, what."


RoboCop primarily used two weapons, an NI and an M2 Battle Rifle. The NI was held in his right hand, while the M2 was held in his left. If RoboCop sensed he needed a weapon, or was threatened, the system would make his N and M2 available by deploying them from his leg. His NI would deploy from his right leg and his M2 from the left. RoboCop also briefly used an MP7A1 instead of his M2 when fighting Antoine Vallon's men.


"Your armor. State of the art, but not invulnerable. caliber or larger can penetrate or kill. Multiple hits and guess who ends up in the recycling bin. If you sense you need a weapon, or threatened, the visor goes down and the system makes the weapons available."

&#;Mattox, regarding the suit

Because of Murphy's massive permanent injuries, the few functioning remains of his anatomy require an entire body of robotic prosthesis. The specially designed prosthesis not only allowed him to move again, but it is also powerful and equipped for police operation and combat. RoboCop primarily used two different suits - a silver one and a black one. On both suits, if RoboCop sensed he needed a weapon, or was threatened, his suit's visor went down and the system made his two weapons available.


The silver RoboCop suit was a silver color and was used by RoboCop when he was first activated. After

the was heavily damaged, RoboCop used the with a DPD logo on the left side of his chest. The suit was state of the art, but not invulnerable; caliber or larger could penetrate or kill.


The suit was almost identical to the suit, but instead of being black, it was covered in desert digital camouflage and featured numbers on the chest.


Like the , the suit was almost identical to the , but featured a forest digital camouflage.


Unlike the other suits, the suit is not identical to the suit but the suit. It has a dark green and beige camouflage.


The is also identical to the , but featured a navy blue camouflage.


The black RoboCop suit was used at the demand of Raymond Sellars. It became heavily damaged after RoboCop fought Antoine Vallon's criminals and became even more damaged after he fought OmniCorp's soldiers and EDs. After killing Sellars, the damage included a missing arm, a broken visor and a large hole on the right side of his chest. His body was later replaced with the , likely due to the heavy damage. Sometime later, RoboCop was again equipped with the suit after being repaired.


  • Cybernetically enhanced strength:&#;RoboCop's bionic/cybernetic replacements give him a vast amount of strength, much stronger than humans.
  • Armored durability:&#;RoboCop's cyborg replacements are made with a high tech armor that is resistant up to caliber, but vulnerable to anything above. He is also less susceptible to injury, even so he still feels pain.
  • Cybernetically enhanced speed:&#;RoboCop's bionic replacements make him much faster than humans. He can run at exceptional speed without getting tired.
  • Cybernetically enhanced reflexes: RoboCop is faster due to the quantum&#;processor in his brain, allowing him to react faster in a given situation. Nevertheless, despite the fast flow of information, without software overriding his decisions, he is therefore still bound by human decision making capacities.
  • Cybernetially enhanced senses: RoboCop's sensors allow him to see in the dark using infrared vision.
  • Biometric sensors: RoboCop's has internal biometric sensors, allowing him to scan a human subject and perform the following, including scanning a person to determine and assess health or injury. Scanning a persons levels of stress/voice patterns/heartbeat/eye dilation/blood pressure to determine the likelihood of an individual or suspect posing a threat and giving RoboCop ample time to react.
  • Database and surveillance connectivity: RoboCop can access police databases and Detroit's CCTV cameras wirelessly, which help locate criminals and their activities easily. He has access to cellphone networks to track suspects not using an encrypted phone. He also has access to archive to terabytes of CCTV footage from to /present day with this footage combined with facial recognition he can effortlessly spot a criminal/felon in a crowd or otherwise instantaneously.
  • Tracking: RoboCop can track unencrypted handphone signals.


  • Mechanical Limitations: Despite all of RoboCop's technological advances, he is still mostly a machine thus mechanical maintenance is essential requiring servicing and tune ups from time to time.
  • Organic Vulnerabilities: What few organic systems still comprise Murphy's body, require a daily intake of proteins, fats, minerals and carbs to feed his remaining organs, he has no digestive system thus he must be "fed" intravenously. Along with blood-cleansing, periodic viral and bacterial-screening, anti-inflammatory corticoids, hormones and antibiotic protocols to maintain the organics left inside the bionics. Without such protocols, the organs and brain would starve without nutrients could become infected and necrotic and cease activity within him.
  • Invasive Programming: Being mostly machine RoboCop is subject to core programming, namely that he cannot arrest or harm OCP individuals, even so by virtue of sheer force of will despite threatening shut down, Alex was able to shoot and kill Sellars (OmniCorp's CEO)

Behind the scenes[]

RoboCop ()

RoboCop is the remake of the film of the same name. The film stars Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy, a Detroit police officer who is critically injured in the line of duty and subsequently is given new life by OmniCorp, a multinational conglomerate, as the cybernetic police officer RoboCop. The film was directed by José Padilha (Elite Squad) and co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, and Gary Oldman.

The following weapons were used in the film RoboCop ():


"TSR 66" (RoboCop Pistol)

RoboCop (Joel Kinnaman) carries a customized taser pistol, which Mattox (Jackie Earle Haley), OmniCorp armorer and RoboCop's trainer, refers to as the "TSR 66" (though marketing for the film identified it as the "NI"), as his main sidearm in the film. The pistol is a Beretta with a custom shell that was created using a 3D printer. The weapon fires a smaller scale version of the XREP cartridge made by Taser International, with both standard (less lethal, as the real model) 50, Volt and , Volt lethal settings.

Smith & Wesson M&P

Mattox (Jackie Earle Haley), OmniCorp armorer and RoboCop's trainer, briefly uses a Smith & Wesson M&P in the film. The gun is fitted with a custom barrel weight that houses a laser.

Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark XIX

Corrupt Detective Andre Daniels (K.C. Collins) surreptitiously draws a chrome/nickel Desert Eagle Mark XIX when he encounters RoboCop. This firearm is likely chosen because it is referenced in the film that a ' caliber' weapon could kill RoboCop, and the Desert Eagle does have a caliber chambering, a showing of some firearms knowledge and attention to detail on the part of the filmmakers. Another blue-steel Desert Eagle is briefly glimpsed in the film.

Glock 17

OmniCorp guards uses Glock 17 as their standard sidearms. Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton) aims and uses a Glock given by a guard at RoboCop during the finale. Another is briefly used by one of Vallon's gunmen during their shootout with Murphy and Lewis.

Ruger KP89

A low-level arms dealer that Murphy and Lewis deal with near the beginning of the film carries a Ruger KP Murphy disarms him of the weapon and holds it on him during a brief confrontation. The criminal is seen again with the Ruger later in the film.

Heckler & Koch MP7A1

RoboCop (Joel Kinnaman) notably uses a Heckler & Koch MP7A1 when storming the hideout of arms dealer Antoine Vallon. This is a continuity error as RoboCop started out using his 'M2 Battle Rifle' which suddenly switches to the MP7 in the next shot. This error is also continued in the sequence, when the shots jump between RoboCop being seen using the M2 Battle Rifle in his POV while still using the MP7 in the scene (See 'Special' section below).

"M2 Battle Rifle"

RoboCop (Joel Kinnaman) uses a customized rifle in the film as his main firearm. Mattox (Jackie Earle Haley), OmniCorp armorer and RoboCop's trainer in the movie, identifies the weapon as a "Modified M2 Battle Rifle" and says it is chambered for the Beowulf caliber. Based on the trigger, the weapon seems to have been (like the TSR 66) based on a Beretta pistol with a custom shell and its trigger guard removed.

RoboCop is a American superhero film directed by José Padilha and written by Joshua Zetumer, Nick Schenk, Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner. It is a remake of the film of the same name also written by Neumeier and Miner. The film stars Joel Kinnaman as the title character, with Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish and Jackie Earle Haley in supporting roles.


In , OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. While its drones have long been used by the military overseas, their use is forbidden in American law enforcement. However, OmniCorp gets a golden opportunity to crack that market when Detroit cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is critically injured in the line of duty. By transforming Murphy into a cyborg, OmniCorp executives hope to rake in billions for their shareholders, but they forget one thing: There's still a man inside the machine.

Bad Qualities

  1. Similar to Dragonball: Evolution, RoboCop is given a very questionable characterization. While making changes to a character is to be expected in an adaptation, the changes given to this incarnation of RoboCop are too drastic, to the point where he doesn't really feel or look like he's actually RoboCop. Also, the RoboCop suit looks nothing like the iconic one from the original three films.
  2. This film is completely unnecessary, as the third film had already killed the franchise twenty one years earlier. Not to mention the fact that there are many changes to the story compared to the original which do not help in the slightest with its other major flaws.
  3. Some of the characters from the film like Robocop/Alex Murphy's partner, Anne Lewis (who is replaced by a male person named Jack Lewis), the chief executive of OCP, The Old Man (replaced by Dennett Norton), the Sergeant Warren Reed (replaced by the female Chief Karen Dean), along with fellow villains, Clarence Boddicker, and OCP Senior Vice President, Dick Jones (who is replaced by CEO of OCP Raymond Sellars) do not appear in the remake.
  4. Mediocre acting by Joel Kinnaman as the titular character.
  5. A bizzare storyline that is not at least % percent faithful to the original movie.
  6. Unlike the original classic and second film, which are both R-rated, this is PG, like the last one, which indicates that the violence level is lower than in the first two films.
  7. Poor grasp to the source material:
    • Alex got his accident from a car explosion than being injured by gunmen.
    • Robocop's wife and son get a larger role.
  8. Instead of focusing more on action scenes, it is more of a drama than an action film. In fact, the film feels more like a police drama film.
  9. The characters are unlikable.
  10. Poor directing.
  11. Joel Kinnaman is nothing like Peter Weller's version of RoboCop as he is seriously miscast.
  12. Poor special effects.
  13. The humor falls flat compared to the humor in the previous films.

Good Qualities

  1. The soundtrack composed by Pedro Bromfman is very good.
  2. Decent performances from Michael Keaton, Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson.
  3. The action is pretty good, if not as good as the original film.
  4. It has some decent political and media satire.
  5. The Ed does appear.
  6. A direct sequel of that film, RoboCop Returns, will ignore the events of this film and the original two sequels.


RoboCop received mixed reviews from critics, audiences and fans of the original film with praise for some of the cast's performances, action, updates, style and political/media satire, but criticism for its lack of violence, social satire and humor compared to the original film. The film holds a 49% on Rotten Tomatoes with an average of /10 and a critic consensus that reads "While it's far better than it could have been, José Padilha's RoboCop remake fails to offer a significant improvement over the original.". On Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average based on selected critic reviews, the film has a score of 52 out of based on 41 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews". Audiences surveyed by CinemaScore gave the film a "B+" grade, on an A+ to F scale.

Box Office

RoboCop opened up at #3 on its opening weekend grossing $21,, domestically. It later made a domestic gross of $58,, In overseas territories, the film grossed $,, Overall, the film made $,, against its $ million budget. The film was deemed a box office bomb.


  • There were plans for a sequel and a reboot after it was released. Fortunately, the sequel was cancelled in September after the film failed at the box office.
  • Russell Crowe, Michael Fassbender, and Chris Pine were all originally approached for the lead role.

RoboCop ( film)

superhero film by José Padilha

RoboCop is a American superhero film directed by José Padilha and written by Joshua Zetumer, Nick Schenk, Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner. It is a remake of the film of the same name and the fourth installment of the RoboCop franchise also written by Neumeier and Miner. The film stars Joel Kinnaman as the title character, with Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish and Jackie Earle Haley in supporting roles.

Screen Gems first announced a remake in , but it was halted one year later. Darren Aronofsky and David Self were originally assigned to direct and write the film, respectively, for a tentative release. The film was delayed numerous times, and Padilha signed on in In March , Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (successor company to Orion Pictures until September 11, , the studio that released the original film) announced an August release, but that was then changed to February The principal characters were cast from March to July Principal photography began in September in Toronto[9] and Vancouver in Canada,[10] with additional locations in Hamilton, in Canada, and Detroit in the United States.

The film was released in the United States on February 12, RoboCop received mixed reviews, with praise for some of the cast's performances, action, updates, style and political/media satire, but criticism for its lack of violence, social satire and humor compared to the original film, and grossed $ million against its $ million budget.


In , multinational conglomerate OmniCorp revolutionizes warfare by introducing robotic peacekeepers capable of maintaining law and order. Led by CEO Raymond Sellars, the company moves to market its technology to domestic law enforcement. However, the passage of the Dreyfus Act, forbidding deployment of militarized drones in the United States, prevents this. Aware that most Americans oppose the use of military systems in their communities, Sellars asks Dr. Dennett Norton and his research team to come up with an alternative. The result is a proposal for a cyborg police officer. However, Norton informs Sellars that only someone stable enough to handle being a cyborg can be turned into one, and some candidates are rejected.

A Detroit police detective, Alex Murphy, is chosen after he is critically injured in a car bomb explosion arranged by crime boss Antoine Vallon as revenge for Murphy's investigation into his activities. Norton persuades Murphy's wife, Clara, to sign off on the procedure. Upon waking up and realizing the extent of his transformation, a frustrated Murphy escapes, but Norton shuts him down and brings him back to the lab. As Norton reveals to Murphy that the only remnants of his human body are most of his head (excluding parts of the brain), respiratory organs, heart, and right hand, a disgusted Murphy asks for euthanasia. Norton reminds Murphy about his wife's and son's patience, convincing him to live. During combat training with trainer Rick Mattox, Murphy proves unable to compete with the standard OmniCorp drones efficiently. Norton alters Murphy's programming to make him more efficient by letting drone programming take over his actions, making Murphy think they are his. This re-programming increases Murphy's efficiency dramatically, but leaves him less empathetic, due to his human nature being bypassed. That night, Murphy goes to his house to meet Clara and his son David to make sure they are okay, comforting David.

Shortly before he is publicly unveiled, Murphy has an emotional breakdown, forcing Norton to suppress his emotions. During the ceremony, RoboCop identifies and apprehends a criminal in the crowd. He goes on to reduce crime in Detroit dramatically, simultaneously increasing public support for repealing the Dreyfus Act. Aware that Clara has begun to ask questions, Sellars orders Norton to keep her away from her husband.

Clara nevertheless manages to confront RoboCop, telling him of their son David's nightmares. The experience leads Murphy to override his programming and access the previously sealed files on his attempted murder. From them, he learns his son had PTSD after witnessing the explosion. Murphy pursues Vallon's gang to exact revenge. He takes heavy damage from their armor-piercing weapons, but manages to kill Vallon and his men. Murphy returns to the station and joins with his old partner, Jack Lewis. They confront the two corrupt police officers who betrayed him to Vallon, shooting one and tasing the other. Learning that the Chief of Police was also involved, Murphy moves to arrest her, but is remotely shut down by Mattox.

With the help of pro-OmniCorp talk show host Pat Novak, Sellars uses the incident to get the Dreyfus Act repealed. Clara goes to the press and fiercely demands to see her husband. Fearful of being exposed, Sellars orders Mattox to destroy RoboCop while being repaired, and tricks Clara into thinking that Murphy died. Norton reaches him first and reveals the truth. RoboCop narrowly escapes from the building just as it undergoes lockdown.

Murphy returns and storms the building, fighting his way through the ED drones sent to stop him, while Lewis and his fellow police arrive to hold off the rest of OmniCorp's forces. Mattox subdues Murphy, preparing to finish him off, but is killed by Lewis. Murphy then makes his way to the roof where Sellars is waiting for a helicopter with Clara and David as hostages. Murphy's programming initially prevents him from arresting Sellars. However, he overcomes his programming long enough to kill Sellars when Sellars overconfidently taunts him.

OmniCorp's parent company, OCP, shuts down the project. The President vetoes the repeal of the Dreyfus Act based on Norton's testimony, much to Novak's anger. Murphy's body is rebuilt in Norton's laboratory, and he waits for Clara and David, who are coming to visit him.

"I wanted to make a film that is passed into the near future. Now the Aronofsky's script was going years in the future when humanity would have lost the notion of morality and the only place wherein could recover this concept was in the RoboCop program. It has nothing to do with what I wanted, so I did not even read the script."

—Padilha, on Darren Aronofsky's script.[12]

Screen Gems first announced that it was working on a new RoboCop film in late ; no further details were given. In November , Bloody Disgusting reported that the RoboCop remake had been halted.[13] In March , RoboCop was mentioned in an MGM press release[14] regarding franchises it would be developing in the future. An MGM poster displayed at the Licensing International Expo of June read, "RoboCop coming "[15] The studio met with Darren Aronofsky to discuss the possibility of him directing the film.[16] At the San Diego Comic-Con International , Aronofsky was confirmed to direct the " RoboCop" film, with David Self writing the script.[17] The release date was postponed to [18] At the San Diego Comic-Con in July , MGM representatives stated only that the film would be pushed back to Summer or a later date, due to scheduling conflicts with the director (most likely Aronofsky). MGM representatives would neither confirm nor deny if Aronofsky was still connected with the project.[19]

On January 5, , it was reported that the RoboCop remake was indeed on hold and Darren Aronofsky was still attached to direct. When MGM executives, particularly MGM chairperson Mary Parent, saw the immense success of the James Cameron film Avatar, it was clear that they wanted a 3D film for the new RoboCop. Due to the financial state of MGM at the time, without an owner,[clarification needed] and creative disagreements between the studio and Aronofsky, the film remained on hold.[20] On March 2, , it was announced that Brazilian director José Padilha was attached to direct, instead of Aronofsky, mainly because of his commercial success with Elite Squad and Elite Squad: The Enemy Within.[21] On March 11, , Sean O'Neal of The A.V. Club stated that up-and-coming screenwriter Joshua Zetumer would write the script. Although Zetumer had been involved with a number of canceled or otherwise stagnant projects, he had also worked on the screenplay for Quantum of Solace.[22] Comparing the new work to the film, Padilha said in , "the environment nowadays is different than the environment in the 80's and the way to explore the concept is different."[23] It was announced in October that the film would get an IMAX release in February [24] Columbia Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer distributed the film in United States, Canada, and worldwide with the exclusion of United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria, where StudioCanal handled distribution.[25][5][26][27]


On April 12, , rumors stated that MGM was looking at A-list stars such as Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, and Keanu Reeves to star in the lead role of Alex Murphy/RoboCop in the upcoming remake.[28] On June 16, , pictures of promotional art were released, as well as a sales sheet from the Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas, NV, promoting a future release of RoboCop which would re-invent the franchise. The promotional material had sparse details of the film but clearly stated that MGM was targeting a release and José Padilha of Elite Squad and Bus fame was confirmed as director of the film. Michael Fassbender,[29]Matthias Schoenaerts,[30] and Russell Crowe[31] were considered to play the title role. On March 3, , it was confirmed that actor Joel Kinnaman would be playing the lead role,[32] and on March 9, , the film was given a release date of August 9, [33]Hugh Laurie was set to play the role of the CEO of OmniCorp on June 13, [34] but he later declined.[35]Clive Owen was in the running to replace him until Michael Keaton was cast in the role in August [36]Edward Norton, Sean Penn, Gael García Bernal, and Rebecca Hall were initially considered for the roles of Dr. Dennett Norton, Novak, Jack Lewis, and Clara Murphy, respectively.[37] The roles ended up being cast with Gary Oldman,[38]Samuel L. Jackson,[39]Michael K. Williams,[40] and Abbie Cornish.[41]Jackie Earle Haley officially signed on in July to play a "military man named Mattox responsible for training Kinnaman's RoboCop".[42]Jay Baruchel was confirmed to have signed onto the film on July 25, , as Pope, a marketing exec for OmniCorp.[43]Douglas Urbanski, cast as Mayor Durant, is typically a non-actor who is also the decades-long manager and producing partner of Gary Oldman. Rob Bottin's original costume for the title character was re-imagined. Initial reactions were unfavorable[44][45][46] and some compared it with Christian Bale's Batman suit in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight films.[44][47][48][49] News reports discussed a "rather derivative" design which "looks more like kevlar body armor than Detroit steel".[50]The Guardian described the new RoboCop as "a crime-fighting machine who is not so much cyborg as skinny bloke in matte-black body armour." and said "The new Robosuit has a scaly, insectoid look to it, with a blacked-out visor rather than the original's steel extended helmet."[51]

Before starting filming, Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles revealed that Padilha called him to admit he was having "the worst experience of his life" and "for every ten ideas he has, nine are cut". Padilha, according to Meirelles, said, "It's hell here. The film will be good, but I have never suffered so much and I don't want to do it again".[52] However, Padilha talked enthusiastically about the project at the San Diego Comic-Con International and in his introduction to the second trailer.[citation needed] Production began in September [53]


Filming took place in Toronto,[54] Vancouver and other parts of Ontario.[55] Shooting locations within the city included the University of Toronto where a scene was filmed that appeared to be RoboCop being unveiled to the city of Detroit.[56] Filming in Hamilton began on Monday, September 24, for five nights.[citation needed] Streets were closed for each of those days from 6pm to 7am.[citation needed] A spokesperson for MGM confirmed that the film was partially shot in Detroit.[57]

An OmniCorp website was set up in early A film-specific RoboCop site was launched nearer the release date. A rough trailer and some film footage featuring Samuel L. Jackson's and Michael Keaton's characters was shown at the San Diego Comic-Con International. According to director Padilha, the first theatrical trailer was supposed to debut with Elysium, but it was instead released online on September 5, , and was attached to showings of Riddick. Two further trailers were also released, one of which was uploaded to Yahoo! Movies with an introduction from Padilha, in which he said, "I'm thrilled to have had the chance to direct this movie I'm a fan of the original movie because it was ahead of its time both aesthetically and thematically. Back in '87, it was talking already about automated violence — both in war and law enforcement. And now, we actually have that happening in our lives and it's going to be more and more present. So we already have the drones. Now we're going to have automated robots doing law enforcement and replacing soldiers in the battlefield. So we had a chance to make this movie and talk about this." Two main posters were released in late , with one showing CTBA complex in Madrid. TV spots were uploaded to Sony Pictures and StudioCanal UK's YouTube channels from January A video game for Android and iOS was released as a tie-in to the film.[61]Jada Toys released a range of action figures, including a radio control RoboCop on his Police Cruiser and roleplay merchandise including the new RoboCop helmet and chestplate. Two detailed figures from the film were released in April from Play Arts Kai.[needs update] The company threezero is also creating two RoboCop figures and a camo-coloured ED Four one-shot comic tie-ins were published weekly starting from the week of theatrical release in the US. They were collected in a trade paperback edition under the title RoboCop: The Human Element to coincide with the home media releases.

Home media[edit]

RoboCop was released on DVD and Blu-ray on June 3, in the United States by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.[62]Best Buy had an exclusive Metalpak edition, while the Target edition came with an exclusive digital download of the previously unreleased comic "Gauntlet". In the UK, an exclusive Amazon steelbook was made available on June 9.

RoboCop Day[edit]

To coincide with the home media releases, Detroit celebrated with "RoboCop Day" on June 3, , during which RoboCop was photographed with fans throughout the city, and threw the first pitch at the Detroit Tigers game.


Box office[edit]

Robocop opened in 3, theaters in The United States and grossed $21,,, with an average of $6, per theater and ranking #3 at the box office. The film ultimately earned $58,, domestically and $,, internationally for a total of $,,, on a $ million budget.[8][7]

Critical response[edit]

RoboCop received mixed reviews.[63] On review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 48% based on reviews and an average rating of / The site's critical consensus reads, "While it's far better than it could have been, José Padilha's RoboCop remake fails to offer a significant improvement over the original."[64] On Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average based on selected critic reviews, the film has a score of 52 out of based on 41 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[65] Audiences surveyed by CinemaScore gave the film a "B+" grade, on an A+ to F scale.[66]

RoboCop received several comparisons to the film; the consensus was that it fell short.[68] Guy Lodge of Variety said that "It's a less playful enterprise than the original, but meets the era's darker demands for action reboots with machine-tooled efficiency and a hint of soul."[69] Leslie Felperin from The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the remake "has a better cast, more meticulous script and, naturally, flashier effects, but it lacks the original's wit and subversive slipperiness."[70] Andrew Osmond from SFX says, "It's not a classic like Paul Verhoeven's original, but it is an excellent, intelligent SF drama", believing it is "one of the boldest Hollywood reboots we've seen yet."[71]

Chris Hewitt from Empire wrote, "there's a sense that Padilha, or perhaps his corporate overlords, don't really get what made the original so special."[72]Nigel Andrews from Financial Times called it "a leaden, needless remake".[73]Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian wrote it was "a dumbed-down shoot-em-up frontloaded with elaborate but perfunctory new 'satirical' material in which the movie loses interest with breathtaking speed".[74] His fellow Guardian film critic Mark Kermode rated it 3 out of 5 stars, writing that "against the odds, this emerges as far less depressing fare than one might have expected, retaining the key elements of political satire and philosophical musings that powered Verhoeven's original" and "at least it appears to have been made by someone who understands what made the original great."[75]

Nancy Allen, who played Anne Lewis in the original trilogy, did not like the remake, as she pointed to a lack of ideas from major movie studios as part of the reason for the seemingly endless glut of remakes, and stated that she did not think one should "remake iconic films." Allen went on to praise the original's script and crew, however.[76]


Cancelled sequel[edit]

On September 11, , Den of Geek reported that Sony was working on a sequel,[77] though plans subsequently changed.


In July , it was announced the series would again be rebooted with a film directed by Neill Blomkamp, titled RoboCop Returns, which will serve as a direct sequel to Verhoeven's original film and ignore the events of previous sequels and the reboot.[78][79]

On August 15, , Blomkamp announced that he was no longer directing the film as he is focusing on directing a horror movie instead.[80] On November 20, , Abe Forsythe was set to direct.[81]

[Bob Morton is washing his hands in an OCP bathroom when Dick Jones shows up behind him]
Dick Jones: Congratulations, Bob. I remember when I was a young executive at this company. We used to call the old man funny names. "Iron Butt", "Boner", once I even called him "asshole". But there was always respect. I always knew where the line was drawn. And you just stepped over it, buddy-boy. You've insulted me. And you've insulted this company with that bastard creation of yours. I had a guaranteed military sale with ED Renovation program. Spare parts for 25 years. Who cares if it worked or not?
Bob Morton: The old man thought it was pretty important Dick.
Dick Jones: You know he's a sweet old man. And he means well. But he's not gonna live forever. And I'm number two around here. Pretty simple math, huh, Bob? You just fucked with the wrong guy!

Lt. Hedgecock: [on megaphone] Okay, Miller. Don't hurt the mayor; we'll give you what you want.
Ron Miller: First, don't fuck with me! I'm a desperate man! And second, I want some fresh coffee. And third, I want a recount! And no matter how it turns out, I want my old job back!
Lt. Hedgecock: Okay.
Ron Miller: And I want a bigger office! And I want a new car! And I want the city to pay for it all!
Lt. Hedgecock: What kind of car, Miller?
Ron Miller: Something with reclining leather seats, that goes really fast, and gets really shitty gas mileage!
Lt. Hedgecock: How about the, uh, SUX?
Ron Miller: Yeah! Okay, sure! What about cruise control? Does it come with cruise control?
Lt. Hedgecock: Hey, no problem, Miller. Let the mayor go, we'll even throw in a Blaupunkt. [beat]

Sal: Frankie, blow this cocksucker's head off.
[Sal's men pull weapons on Boddicker and his crew, who draw their own weapons.]

Dick Jones: What's the matter, officer? I'll tell you what's the matter. It's a little insurance policy called "Directive 4", my contribution to your very psychological profile.

Dick Jones: That thing is still alive.
Clarence Boddicker: I don't know what you're talking about.
Dick Jones: The police officer who arrested you, the one you spilled your guts to.
Clarence Boddicker: Hey, take a look at my face, Dick! He was trying to kill me!
Dick Jones: He's a cyborg, you idiot! He recorded every word you said! His memories are admissable as evidence! You involved me! You're gonna have to kill it.
Clarence Boddicker: Well, listen, chiefyour company built the fucking thing! Now I gotta deal with it?! I don't have time for this bullshit! [heads for the door]
Dick Jones: Suit yourself, Clarence. But Delta City begins construction in two months. That's two million workers living in trailers. That means drugs. Gambling. Prostitution. [Boddicker stops, backtracks into the room] Virgin territory for the man who knows how to open up new markets. One man could control it all, Clarence.
Clarence Boddicker: Well, I guess we're gonna be friends after all… Richard.
[Jones tosses Boddicker RoboCop's tracker.]

Old Man: These are serious charges. What is your evidence?
[Robocop moves toward the TV monitors, and plays back Dick Jones's statement.]
Dick Jones: [on recording] I had to kill Bob Morton because he made a mistake; now it's time to erase that mistake.
[Robocop plays the recording repeatedly. Jones pulls a gun on the Old Man.]
Dick Jones: I want a chopper! Now! We will walk to the roof, very calmly! I will board the chopper with my hostage. Anybody tries to stop me, the old geezer gets it!
[Robocop aims his firearm in the general direction of Dick Jones, but makes no attempt to shoot him.]

About RoboCop[edit]

  • It’s certainly the most challenging role I’ve ever done. To bring that alive, much of it is thanks to Moni Yakim [the head of the Movement Department at Juilliard], Moni Yakim, the writers [Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner], and Paul Verhoeven. That quadrant of people all infused to make that thing, and Rob Bottin, the makeup artist, and Stephan Dupuis, the guy who put on the prosthetics. I dunno, that was just… I knew I was making a good film. When I met Paul Verhoeven in a hotel room in New York, I knew that, because Paul was directing it, it was going to be great. I knew it was going to have something of a moral opera in it and that he was not going to miss the universal morality in this. He was not going to just make an action movie. And it’s a very funny movie and a brilliant sort of social commentary. When I met Verhoeven, I’d seen all his movies, and I just knew he’d be fantastic. And to be feeling the feelings I felt when I met him… I mean, he was intimidating, but I knew that, with his expertise, he’d be executing something non-ephemeral and awakening certain aspects of social morality that’ll last. That movie will be around forever, man.
  • I feel good about playing a robot in that I’m playing a human being who has been transformed into a cyborg. Aside from the action-adventure, the corruption, corporate machinery gone berserk and so on, the heart of all this is a morality tale. It’s like Beauty and the Beast, or the Tin Man of The Wizard of Oz. It’s a great little jewel of a human story.
  • I worked with a mime for four months. We wanted to take a human being and transform him into a robot, walking in a suit in such a way that was stylized, attractive, yet computerized and the mechanical without being ‘mimelike.’ In essence, we wanted to have some humanity breathe through this robotic thing.
  • The guys that shot me are part of the military-industrial complex. These ‘powers that be’ manage the police force and are also behind the cybernetic cop idea. They are also the people who are feeding the drug wars, so they can build more robots and fight the drug wars they themselves created! All these people are guilty-not only the people who shot me, but the people who made me, too. When they realize that Robo has found out the truth about them, they try to kill me.
    • Peter Weller, "Code Name: RoboCop" by Eric Niderost StarLog Magazine as quoted by Robocop Database
  • RoboCop, a futuristic story about a policeman shot to death and then revived after all parts of his body have been replaced by artificial substitutes, introduces a more tragic note: the hero who finds himself literally "between two deaths"—clinically dead and at the same time provided with a new, mechanical body—starts to remember fragments of his previous, "human" life and thus undergoes a process of resubjectivication, changing gradually back from pure incarnated drive to a being of desire. () [I]f there is a phenomenon that fully deserves to be called the "fundamental fantasy of contemporary mass culture," it is this fantasy of the return of the living dead: the fantasy of a person who does not want to stay dead but returns again and again to pose a threat to the living.

RoboCop (2014) - Operation Freedom Tehran (1080p) FULL HD

RoboCop is a remake of the film of the same name. It is directed by José Padilha.


In , multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years but the Dreyfus Act, a publicly-supported act preventing drones from being allowed to bear firearms, prevents the drones from being used locally. OmniCorp CEO Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton) has his marketing team, in conjunction with scientist Dr. Dennett Norton (Gary Oldman), create a new law enforcement product by combining human and machine in the hopes of changing public opinion and raising OmniCorp's profits.

Policeman Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is critically injured by a car bomb planted by crooked cops outside his house under the payroll of local crime boss Antoine Vallon (Patrick Garrow). Norton picks Murphy for the RoboCop program, and after getting consent from Murphy's wife, Clara (Abbie Cornish), has him outfitted with the RoboCop body and software, which gives him enhanced strength along with instant computing information in his brain. Alex at first rejects his current condition, but is convinced by Norton to be strong for his wife and son. Rick Mattox (Jackie Earle Haley), OmniCorp's military tactician, is skeptical of Alex's abilities and points out he will never be as efficient as a drone. In order to make Alex perform better, Norton tampers with Alex's brain, making him believe that his tactical decisions are his own when he is actually executing programs.

While preparing for a public press conference to unveil RoboCop, Alex is emotionally overwhelmed and has a seizure while downloading the police database information into his brain. Pressed for time, Norton has Alex's brain chemistry altered, lowering his dopamine levels until he no longer displays any emotions. Under control, Alex attends the press conference, where he ignores his waiting wife and son, and efficiently apprehends a criminal in the crowd. RoboCop is a public relations success, and afterward Alex is successful in drastically reducing the crime rate in Detroit. Public opinion on the Dreyfus Act begins to turn.

Clara, who has been prevented by OmniCorp from seeing Alex, manages to confront her husband as he is leaving the station, telling him about his son David's nightmares. Alex leaves, but then overrides his programming and detours from his current case to go to his house. He reviews the CCTV footage of his accident and realizes that David saw his body and was traumatized by it. Alex then pursues Vallon for revenge, tracking him down to a warehouse where Alex then kills everyone. Alex then returns to the station to apprehend the two cops who sold him out; they tell him that the Chief of Police is in on it. Alex shoots one cop non-fatally and stuns the other, and is about to arrest Chief of Police Karen Dean (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) when Mattox, who has been given full access to the RoboCop program, remotely shuts him down.

Sellars decides to spin this turn of events to his advantage, via television presenter Pat Novak (Samuel L. Jackson), who thanks RoboCop for revealing the fallibility of the police, and points out that drones are incorruptible. A repeal of the Dreyfus Act goes underway, with votes overwhelmingly in support of the repeal. Sellars tells Norton that RoboCop is no longer relevant, and sends Mattox to destroy him. Norton reaches Alex in the lab first and has him brought back to consciousness, telling him everything. Alex, feeling betrayed, goes after Sellars.

Sellars has the OmniCorp building shut down and armed with drones. Alex manages to gain entry with the help of his former partner, Jack Lewis (Michael K. Williams) and other police officers. Alex encounters Mattox and is almost at defeat, but Mattox is shot by Lewis, who is shot non-fatally. Alex reaches the roof, where Sellars is waiting for a helicopter and has Clara and David as hostages. Alex's programming prevents him from arresting Sellars, but he manages to overcome it just long enough to shoot Sellars, killing him.

In the closing scenes, OmniCorp's parent company, OCP, decides to review the drone and RoboCop program. The President vetoes the repeal of the Dreyfus Act based on the testimony of Norton, who confesses everything they'd done in the RoboCop program. Alex's body is rebuilt in Norton's laboratory, and then he waits for Clara and David, who are coming to visit him.
