In this classic sci-fi action-adventure, when a good cop gets blown away by ruthless criminals, innovative doctors are able to piece him back together as an unstoppable crime-fighting cyborg called “Robocop.” Equipped with high-tech weaponry, Robocop quickly cleans up the crime-ridden streets of Detroit. But despite his new, hardened exterior, Robocop relives vivid nightmares of his own death at the hands of vicious killers. Now he seeks more that justice…he seeks revenge!
