"If the last thing you do before you die is do coke off a hookers tits you’re going out in style! This is one of the most violent movies ever made. A guy gets melted with acid and hit by a car! A guy gets his dick shot off! Robocop gets all his limbs shot off with shotguns before he before he becomes robocop. Verhoven is a master of sci-fi craziness. "
"Ahhh, 1987, what a year for cinema. Not the least of which is Paul Verhoeven's incredible feat of practical effects engineering: _RoboCop_.

Would like to think the proposed RoboCop Returns will succeed where other failed, but don't hold out much hope. **4.25/5**"
