The review of this Movie prepared by Jack Bauer

In the not-too-distant future, the city of Detroit is in turmoil. A cop killer named Clarence Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith, later to star as the father in "That '70s Show"!) and his gang wreak havoc in the streets. Giant corporation OCP (Omni Consumer Products) proposes to replace human cops with a giant robot called ED-209 which malfunctions during a demo and kills a man. When a young officer named Alex J. Murphy (Weller) is killed by Boddicker's gang, an OCP exec orders a super-robot cop built up over and with the remains of Murphy's body. Robocop and Murphy's longtime female partner, Officer Anne Lewis (Allen) start arresting Boddicker's men, but they immediately get released because they turn out to be in the employ of an OCP exec! Everything heads toward a big showdown. Part action thriller, part satire, and brutally, graphically violent, "Robocop" is sheer, dumb entertainment and not for the faint of heart.
