Robocop (Empire On-Demand Review)

Netflix

Available Now / 1987 / Cert 18

However the remake turns out, we’ll always have Paul Verhoeven’s sardonic and gloriously subversive original, in which a fatally wounded cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) is cybernetically upcycled into a corporate crime fighter dubbed. I’d buy that for a dollar (but it’s free to Netflix subscribers).
