VHS Box Description
Part man, part machine, all cop.
He's RoboCop. And in the near future, he's law enforcement's only hope.
A sadistic crime wave is sweeping across America. In Old Detroit, the situation is so bad a private corporation; Security Concepts, Inc. has assumed control of the police force.
The executives at the company think they have the answer—until the enforcement droid they creat kills one of their own. Then an ambitious young executive seizes the opportunity. He and his research team create a law enforcement cyborg from the body of a slain officer. They program RoboCop to 1) Serve the public trust. 2) Uphold the law. 3) Protect the innocent.
All goes well at first. RobCoop stops every sleazeball he encounters with deadly, piercing and sometimes gruesome accuracy. But there are forces on the street—and within Security Concepts itself—that will stop at nothing to see this super cyborg violently eliminated.
Prepare yourself for non-stop action and adventure in one of the most explosive sci-fi stories you'll ever witness: ROBOCOP.
