Robocop is an armored and computerized Lancelot created by a sinister security company from the body of a deceased police officer (Weller). He walks like Godzilla and shakes off shells like a tank, yet beneath his metal casing there is still a spark of his former identity and conscience, both of which drive him to fight against the machinations of his evil corporate re-creators. Dutch film director Paul Verhoeven reinvigorated the Hollywood sci-fi action film with this energetic creation which Verhoeven has stated was inspired by James Whale’s original Frankenstein.
