Found 24th Oct 2009
I was disappointed to see this being sold at CEX for £10 and glad to see it for only £7.98 at amazon. It's also £7.99 at HMV if you prefer. It's a whoping £17.99 at Play.com!

Synopsis
Peter Weller stars in this urban sci-fi Western as Murphy, a good cop who literally gets shot to pieces while on duty and winds up reborn as a crime-fighting machine. An ambitious executive at OCP, the corporation running the futuristic city of Detroit, fuses Murphy's torso with bulletproof steel limbs and rewires his brain with computer chips so he will have no will of his own. Murphy's former partner tries to help RoboCop remember his human past, but his circuitry blocks whatever dim memories remain. Luckily, a chance encounter with one of his killers wakes up the human essence in RoboCop, causing him to rebel against his programming and commence on a one-cyborg mission of vengeance that leads all the way to the top of OCP. This second English-language film by Dutch director Paul Verhoeven is unremittingly brutal, darkly comic, and filled with bits of clever satire and pathos. A special highlight is the hilariously incompetent ED-209, RoboCop's main rival in the department of automated law enforcement. Considered by many critics to be one of the best films of its genre, ROBOCOP was followed by several sequels and a 1994 TV series.

Very good film. I had the pleasure of seeing it recently in HD and I can honestly say that it certainly holds the test of time, a very nice classic.

Your Right, High Def Digest does not rate this transfer.

Thats the problem with Blu Ray, some transfers are outstanding (2001 space oddysey) and some are not worth replacing your normal DVD version.

Heat added for the price.
