Critic Reviews of "RoboCop (1987)"Los Angeles TimesFebruary 11, 2014
Verhoeven's strong suits have always been visual energy and a Rabelaisan realism: a gutsy, jovial way of ripping through social systems.Chicago TribuneFebruary 11, 2014
RoboCop relies for most of its impact -- and, more disturbingly, for much of its comedy -- on an absurd exaggeration of physical force.Philadelphia InquirerFebruary 11, 2014
When the law-enforcing RoboCop cleans up corrupt Motown, his victory is satisfying because he's got machinery and morals on his side. RoboCop is where high-tech meets High Noon.Orlando SentinelFebruary 11, 2014
Like the tormented figure at its center, this movie combines the mechanical with the human. And though much of the film is made up of spare parts from cop shows, exploitation flicks and comic books, it nevertheless comes to life.ReelViewsJuly 14, 2009
A sci-fi action film with a silly title that turned out to be a biting satire of big business practices.Chicago ReaderJune 05, 2007
There's a brooding, agonized quality to the violence that almost seems subversive, as if Verhoeven were both appalled and fascinated by his complicity in the toxic action rot.CinePassionApril 21, 2014
Paul Verhoeven on blockbuster explosions like Douglas Sirk on lachrymose householdsAntagony & EcstasyFebruary 18, 2014
A perfect version of the thing it sets out to be, one of the most intellectual and propulsive of all '80s action films.Christian Science MonitorFebruary 11, 2014
The story amounts to a celebration of brute force in a crudely etched law-and-order context.Philadelphia Daily NewsFebruary 11, 2014
It proceeds from a vision, and it takes that vision seriously. It ends up being moving -- and for a comic book of a movie, that's no small achievement.Film4February 11, 2014
Paul Verhoeven's glorious sci-fi satire combines searing social comedy with some of the most graphic ultra-violence ever to grace legitimate cinema.People MagazineFebruary 11, 2014
Robocop is a strangely perverse pleasure. Who would expect such a rattletrap concoction to emerge as this summer's sleeper?
