backtrack; RoboCop (1987)

robocop

Humanity, anyone? This was probably my first exposure to Dutch director Paul Verhoeven, and I remember having mixed emotions. In the end, though, his pervasive simplistic cheesiness couldn’t fully obliterate the gripping, chilling, and at times even thoughtworthy qualities.

A violent futuristic vision to enjoy, fear, and ponder. In my book of »fascism for liberals«.

    Having re-watched Robocop a number of times, I’m not sure why i keep going back for another look. While watching, i’m thinking how cheesy it is, yet, every few years I go back. And, it’s not like it’s getting any better with age – perhaps there’s some element of nostalgia in it for me…

  2. I heartily agree. Lots of ambivalence concerning this one.
