The Original!

The Late Show: New Digital Restoration!

(1987) dir Paul Verhoeven w/Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Dan O’Herlihy, Ronny Cox, Kurtwood Smith [102 min; DCP]
Murphy (Weller), a stalwart cop in near-future Detroit, is brutally gunned down, but his fading life is saved and placed into an android body. Awakening as ROBOCOP and touted as the future of law enforcement, Murphy single-handedly cleans up the Motor City. Things get complicated, however, when his suppressed human memories start leaking out and he discovers the ties between his new superiors and the gang that killed him. The latest in a long list of classic films suffering from the indignity of dubious remakes, Paul Verhoeven’s scathing original simply can’t be matched for it’s over the top gore, visceral condemnation of corporate greed, and it’s prescient vision of a bankrupt America on the verge of selling out to big business.
