In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years - and it's meant billions for OmniCorp's bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it.
When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman), a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.

Most definitely the original is king & was & is for my a groundbreaking release into the masses. This was good not bad at all the way I approached this is that it is only by title ROBOCOP. then I can digest the film for what it is good action Gary Oldman Actor with a capital A for me good special effects but up to that point . As i prementioned the original is king. Nice steel. Arrived in tip top shape
Great movie , came in perfect shape!!! Thank you a lot!!! Sheila Nachweih
As a Steel book collector I would say the artwork is nice, not brilliant, but with nice looking. I believe it could be better adding some gloss on it, and embossing. Now the movie itself, I'm impressed with the remake of the Robocop, a lot of action, emotional and with good filming. Visualy is excelente. I advise the action movies lovers to purchase this movie, you will not be desappointed.
Solid film. Enjoyed it from start to finish. Couldn't havr asked for a better looking RoboCop. Steelbook looks pretty hard too. Avid collector and this one is perfect. Thanks Zavvi!
Excellent steelbook, great movie and well protected for shipping to Australia, with foam wrapped around case within a cardboard cartridge! Zavvi is great value and highly recommended!
Ok... Before I start I am not against remakes if there is a point. Can you do something again and make it just as relevant as before? will it be more impactful? Will it, in short, be better? If the answer is 'Yes' then do it. This can be evidenced by many films over the years (The Thing, The Fly, Scarface etc) however this is certainly not one of them. The original 1987 film is, to me, a masterpiece. I am not talking about the sequel (Transformers on acid), the god awful third film, the terrible TV series, The laughable kids cartoon from the 80's or the (admitedly) not that bad made for TV mini movies. The 1987 awesomness. It is a rare instance that you can take a relatively ridiculous concept and create something interesting and layered. It was a body shock film, it showed fear of technology and its implementation in our society, it poked fun at the Regan administration, it was a bleak cyber punk view of the future, it was satricial, there were elements of horror, existential questions of what makes an individual, it was a cyber western, ultra violent action film, it created an iconic looking science fiction character that is now cemented into pop culture history, there were religious themes in it (he dies, comes back to life and at one point in the film is walking ontop of water while the villian is knee deep in the stuff. Its subtle but honestly there) There are literally so many layers to the original film you can peel away and take so much from it, and not just the stuff I have mentioned. My point is this. Did this remake/reimagining/reboot/rewhatever give modern audiences the same experience? No. Not in the slightest. What you have with this film is a pretty generic flick with an exceptionally talented cast who are left with a very bland unoriginal script. It's not a badly made film, the actors aren't bad and there are no issues with it technically. However there is not one scene in this film that is iconic or air fist bumpingly good as the original film. In the end thats the whole point. It is not doing anything new, interesting or the end product finishes up as 'alright but thats about it' then there was no point in remaking the film in the first place. Please don't get me wrong. I am not being a raging fanboy and hating on this for the sake of hating, because of my love for the original source material. It's a valid point that sadly a lot of modern audiences fail to notice. If you just want to watch it? Wait for it to come on for free on the telly or Netflix. Don't buy it. Buy the original.
Excellent film and a nice steelbook packaging would have liked a 3D version also
This steelbook showcases the 2014 re-release of the classic movie RoboCop. It is actually quite attractive. The somewhat monochromatic color scheme still appears vibrant. Good choices for coverart and inside art. Although not as notable as the original classic, the movie is still quite enjoyable as a complementary look at the birth of RoboCop remade in the more "realistic" style of the new superhero movies. This disc is region B, and does not play in my region A-locked North American PS3.
Action pack movie and superb crafted steelbook...amazing
Robocop was a surprising film as i hadn't expected yo enjoy it due to my fond memories of the original. However this film updated the original story while giving more action. The steelbook packaging was very impressive with the imagery used.
The delivery was quick and the condition was perfect
Great movie.. me & my grand son loved it.. better than the original but that's just my opinion, every ones different which is good, not as violent as the original but plenty of action ,, nice steelbook but a embossed title would have been great. !
Film was gripping all the way from start to finish. In my opinion, the end let it down. Way too short an ending with no real amazing end scenes. Much better story than the old Robocop and fans will be very impressed with the cgi and some amazing action scenes. I'd still recommend a watch as it was a good way to spend 2 hours.
Absolutely stunning steelbook. Robocop 2014 isnt a patch on the original but is a really good movie in its own right plenty of action to satisfy and really like the new updated ed-209 and great service once again from zavvi
Great movie.. Went to the cinema to see this with my grandson and it was very entertaining, not as violent as the original but plenty of action, also a few changes to the story.. Looking forward to the Steel book release, nice artwork to !
