Part Man, Part Machine, All Cop.

RoboCop, from Orion Pictures, marked director Paul Verhoeven’s (Flesh + Blood) Hollywood debut and instantly became an enduring sci-fi/action classic when it landed in theaters in the summer of 1987. Verhoeven’s peerlessly exciting and kinetic visuals were matched by a sharp script, iconic cast and exceptional special effects by Rob Bottin (The Thing) and Phil Tippett (The Empire Strikes Back).

The film takes place in Detroit in the not-too-distant future. Heroic cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai) is gunned down in the line of duty, only to be resurrected as RoboCop – a cybernetic mix of spare human parts and Motor City steel, and the latest defense against crime designed by the all-powerful OCP Corporation. As RoboCop’s memories of his former life as Murphy resurface, only his ex-partner (Nancy Allen, Dressed To Kill) stands beside him to fight against the vicious thugs responsible for his death, as well as a nefarious top-level OCP executive orchestrating the chaos from above.

Unsurpassably thrilling, unexpectedly moving and unforgettably hilarious in equal measure, the future of law enforcement is back in a definitive 4K UHD Blu-ray presentation packed with hours of brand new bonus features and exclusive collectable packaging.

The best version of Robocop yet!

The steelbook to this is beautifully done and looks with full pictures to the front and the rear. The inside has the famous office room scene where ED-209 goes on a shooting spree so this is a nice steelbook presentation. The video quality is the best it can be, I feel, as there is still some film grain in there to keep the details and the right amount of dolby smoothing to make it look more crisp. I think they've got the balance right. You get both the theatrical and directors cut versions in the box.

Amazing amount of extra content

This is a classic movie, that has now been restored to absolutely amazing 4K, and not only that, but this release contains both Director's Cut and Theatrical versions of the movie, with hours and hours of the bonus content spread on both UltraHD discs. And yeah, there is a booklet included inside the steelbook. Highly recommended!

Robocop

Excellent film and worth the upgrade to 4K

Robocop 4k

Having already purchased the Blu-ray version of this I still went ahead and bought this new 4K UHD version as it is my favourite film. Although this release is exactly the same as the previous Blu-ray in terms of packaging and special features the Dolby Vision present here makes a noticeable difference in terms of colour and contrast. Also the new Dolby Atmos audio mix is a nice addition. Is it worth the upgrade? if your a fan of the movie like myself and know it too well, yes I think you will notice improvement. If not and you only have a passing interest the previous Arrow Blu-ray release will still satisfy.

Great steelbook for a great movie

Lovely steelbook for an old classic. The movie looks great on Dolby vision and package was delivered without a scratch. Highly recommended

Brilliant purchase

Great quality picture, arrived in great condition!

Robocop it's a steel.

Arrow hits the jackpot again with this superb steel and in 4k.... Proper artwork for the cover. Yes it's a repeat of the blu-ray artwork but if it's not broke why fix it?. Not notch transfer and I like the plastic j card which was easy to remove from the steelbook itself. The 4k is a marked step up from the blu-ray and certainly shines on my 4k TV and player. Fingers crossed we get The Thing at some stage from Arrow. Roll on Tremors in June....

Steelbook

Love the film, so happy to now have the steelbook in my collection awesome addition :-)

Robocop 4K Steelbook

Can't think of a film more fitting to be presented in a steelbook. The titular cyborg of the title looks super awesome printed on metal. That iconic poster design takes me back to my childhood and the image quality of the movie is breath-taking. Full of great extra content too.

Beautiful 4K master

I don’t need to tell you how good the film is. You should know that it’s a classic. The 4K remaster is stunning! There’s a natural layer of grain present throughout, even the directors cut extra shots look like they’ve had a rescan. The Atmos sound mix, whilst it sounds great, doesn’t match up to Atmos mixes from releases like Apocalypse Now and Saving Private Ryan. If you’re a fan of the film you’ll love this release.
