RoboCop is a 1987 American science fiction-action film directed by Paul Verhoeven. Set in a crime-ridden Detroit, Michigan in the near future, RoboCop centers on a police officer who is brutally murdered and subsequently re-created as a super-human cyborg known as "RoboCop". The film features Peter Weller, Dan O'Herlihy, Kurtwood Smith, Nancy Allen, Miguel Ferrer, and Ronny Cox.

In addition to being an action film, RoboCop includes larger themes regarding the media, ressurection, gentrification, corruption, and human nature. It received positive reviews and cited as one of the best films of 1987; spawning merchandise, two sequels, a television series, two animated TV series, and a television mini-series, video games and two comic book adaptations.

In a dystopia future, the city of Detroit, Michigan is on the verge of collapse due to financial ruin and unchecked crime. The mega-corporation Omni Consumer Products enters into a contract with the city to run the police force while the company makes plans to destroy "Old Detroit" to replace it with the utopia of "Delta City."

OCP Chairman (Dan O'Herlihy), known as the Old Man, recognizes that existing law enforcement is insufficient to stop the crime spree. Senior president Dick Jones (Ronny Cox) offers a law enforcement droid, the ED-209, but a demonstration of the droid goes badly wrong when a young executive is shot to death by the malfunctioning robot. Furious, the Old Man chastises Jones for this mistake. Seizing his opportunity, ambitious young junior executive Bob Morton (Miguel Ferrer) offers the Old Man an alternative -- his own RoboCop program to create an augmented cyborg. The Old Man agrees but Jones is furious at Morton for going over his head.
