To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's a lovely looking set. Hard protective box, perfect-bound book, attractive (if rather redundant) poster, and some other bits 'n' bobs to boot.
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 :)
This is for the LIMITED EDITION ARROW release of RoboCop. Just in case this shows up elsewhere.
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.
I remember this film coming out and renting it on vhs, watched it many times over the years on laserdisc and dvd, blu ray, Now at last we have a 4k version in all its glory, The 4k release is in Dolby Vision also and you can get the Theatrical Cut and the Extended cut, this is Gorier and is imo the one to watch 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 ....
This is a really neat collectors package for Robocop fans. Comes with both the theatrical and directors cut (the latter having scenes extended, noticeably in two of the movies more graphic shootings). The 4K master is done really well in my opinion, it retains a respectful amount of the original film grain, whilst adding the level of detail you would expect from an UHD upgrade. The use of a wide colour gamut and Dolby Vision is welcome adding extra vibrancy and depth to certain highlights and settings. Sure, there are occasional shots in scenes where the enhancements seem to have been missed out, which look even more apparent, probably because the rest of the content looks much more improved, but they are infrequent. The additional content that comes included (collectors cards, booklet etc), make this a great package for Robocop fans. Definitely the current most premium way to enjoy the movie, a nice addition to any collection. (Watched on an LG CX oled and Panasonic DPUB820)
Another great release from Arrow Video, awesome poster ( which I might get framed and put on wall) and Booklet full of information about the movie (79 pages) comes with cool cards as well and a set Full of extras over 2 Blu-Ray discs , hours worth of extras for fans of the movie this is an brilliant set, Directors cut of the movie which is my fav to watch, the Theatrical version of the movie and also an edited for TV version of the movie which i have not watched yet in this set but I seen few versions of this movie edited on tv with swearing cut out and replaced with some funny words can be fun to watch for a laugh. All in all this set is great and I hope arrow do a Robocop 2 in this type of set not bothered about the 3rd movie though
Another excellent release from Arrow again proving that they are the best video company in the UK at the moment. This includes a beautiful transfer of the uncut version with three audio options. This disc also has a massive amount of quality extras both old and new. The second disc contains the theatrical film and the TV version in a surprisingly high quality transfer. This disc also has interesting comparisons of the different versions. There is a glossy and informative book and poster all in a robust box. This is how a film of this very high calibre deserves to be treated.
It's RoboCop if you haven't seen it before where have you been it's 35 years old this edition comes with the Director's Cut which adds a lot more Gore the 4K presentation itself isn't jaw-dropping and if you already have the Blu-ray I'm not sure it's worth upgrading
