Film Review - RoboCop
This is one of those movies that grows on you. RoboCop is a campy, violent shoot-'em-up movie about a cop who is killed and reincarnated as a cyborg. This would be a very depressing film if it weren't for the fact that it doesn't take itself too seriously.
All big company executives are not-to-be-trusted slime balls. Oh, and in this film, you shouldn't trust them either. The only difference between the white collar crooks and the blue collar crooks is starch.
Even television isn't immune to the social commentary of this film. Media Break's "Give us three minutes and we'll give you the world" attitude is pure fluff. Since the release of this film, the real news has been getting more and more like Media Break.
Is it possible RoboCop was really a high-brow sociology commentary on the 1980s? Shh, don't tell anyone!
