Called by Ken Russell "the greatest science-fiction film since Metropolis," controversial Dutch director Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop is a special-effects-laden cult phenomenon. The film features a resurrected and roboticized hero (Peter Weller) in a new, supercharged cyborg body, struggling to reclaim his memory and avenge his own death. Brutally violent, gleefully funny, the film is a grown-up superhero fantasy come to vivid, bloody life.

Both Criterion editions include the unrated director's cut master in THX, including "excessively violent" shots, cut from the theatrical release to avoid an X rating.

Criterion's CAV Special Edition includes:

  • Screen-specific stereo audio commentary with director Paul Verhoeven, co-writer Ed Neumeier, producer Jon Davison, and Robocop expert Paul Sammon
  • Film-to-storyboards comparison
  • Extensive still frame supplement chronicling the production of RoboCop
