Enhance your purchase
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. 4K ULTRA HD BLU-RAY LIMITED EDITION CONTENTS • 4K restoration of the film from the original camera negative by MGM, transferred in 2013 and approved by director Paul Verhoeven • Newly commissioned artwork by Paul Shipper • Director’s Cut and Theatrical Cut of the film on two 4K (2160p) UHD Blu-ray™ discs with Dolby Vision (HDR10 compatible) • Original lossless stereo and four-channel mixes plus DTS-HD MA 5.1 and Dolby Atmos surround sound options on both cuts • Six collector’s postcards • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly-commissioned artwork • 80-page collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by Omar Ahmed, Christopher Griffiths and Henry Blyth, a 1987 Fangoria interview with Rob Bottin, and archive publicity materials DISC ONE – DIRECTOR’S CUT • Commentary by director Paul Verhoeven, executive producer Jon Davison and co-writer Ed Neumeier • Commentary by film historian Paul M.

And yet....I can't help feeling that for the asking price of £25 it is *seriously* overpriced.
Bear in mind that a Director's Cut blu-ray of this film has been available for several years and can be easily obtained for around £7 or less. Sure, the re-mastered film in this package may look a tad sharper - but £18-worth sharper?
Now, if this set had included a 4K UHD of the film rather than (or in addition to) the blu-ray - that WOULD have been a 5-star package :)
Have always been a fan of the movie and most of us have already seen it by this point. It's a solid science fiction action/horror and one of the very finest to ever be created.
This is the same master that already exists at a less expensive entry point. Minor clean up aside.
New extra features alone are worth the price of admission.
You also get the Theatrical cut of the movie along with the full length "edited for TV" version, which is still hysterical and fascinating that the producers shot so many alternate takes to replace the violence. ED-209 gunning an exec down with no blood anywhere is hilarious.
If you're a fan of RoboCop then this is well worth the money. Also includes a set of postcards, poster and new booklet on the making of process.
The Picture quality retains a lovely layer of film grain, detail on show is superb... see all the grime of Detroit City!! Robocops Armour has never looked so Good.. This Arrow release is the one to buy ....
