Initially uninterested in RoboCop , Verhoeven eventually connected to Murphy’s existential crisis and loaded the film with visual Jesus metaphors – both common interests for the director – but I believe it was his outsider status that led him to poke fun at the literally explosive antics of ‘80s American action movies. When middle-class white men kill in these films, it’s because they have no other choice in the face of crime that’s unpunished by liberal politicians. which was released only a couple of months after Verhoeven’s film in October of 1987), Godfrey Ho’s Robo Vampire (1988), David Chung’s I Love Maria (Cantonese: Tie jia wu di Ma Li Ya , 1988), Akihisa Okamoto’s Lady Battle Cop (Japanese: Onna batoru koppu , 1990), Sam Firstenberg’s Cyborg Cop (1993), Robert Kurtzman’s The Demolitionist (1995), but its mainstream legacy shines more in the likes of Tim Burton’s Batman (1989), Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man (2002), and the far less successful superhero movies in-between (including Raimi’s Darkman [1990] , as a matter of fact).Neumeier and Vehoven reunited for Starship Troopers in 1997 and satirized the inherent fascism of Robert A. Suffice it to say that there’s an enormous amount of bonus content found here, with a big batch of new extras that were created for the 2019 release along with a lot of legacy content that was ported over too. Generally, the chunkiness of grain is decreased, despite the contrast/color differences between negative and positive sources still being clear.

Which is to say that RoboCop has been subtly buffed up without compromising its aura of underground sleaziness. The usual suspects seem to be just as worked up over crime and the idea that the United States is going to hell as they were not only three years ago, but back in the 1980s too.

MGM then released the first anamorphic release in 2001 (it was also included as part of a trilogy set), a 2007 special edition that included an anamorphic version of the unrated cut (alongside the R-rated cut), an unrated/R-rated Blu-ray in 2007, and a remastered unrated Blu-ray in 2014, followed by Arrow’s BD in 2019.You'll really notice the neon signs (on the streets or the gas station), the vibrant yellows and oranges of the explosions, and the intense reds dominating - for example, the night club sequence - and doing so without any sign of bleeding. And of course that seminal score is absolutely tremendous, defining this sci-fi action classic, and rounding out a nice little Dolby Atmos track which is faithful to the original stereo and four-channel mixes (both of which are available as options, along with the Blu-ray's Master Audio 5. Arrow’s original Blu-ray literature warned that, since these inserts were scanned from lower-generation and positive elements, there is an unavoidable subtle shift in picture quality.

RoboCop would be his Hollywood debut, though, since he made it after the troubled production of his first English language film, 1985’s Flesh + Blood , and, because he hadn’t worked with extensive special effects before, his success was not a matter of course.RoboCop was a huge hit in theaters and yet it gained a far larger following on home video, beginning with a 1986 Orion VHS tape and lasting through multiple digital formats (it was reissued on VHS as late as 2000 and still hasn’t found its way to a 4K format yet). This Ultra HD Blu-ray set affords a pair of remarkable native 4K presentations - culled from the 4K restoration MGM did from the original camera negative a few years back - for both the theatrical and director's cuts, on separate discs no less, further blessed with Dolby Vision.
