Paul Verhoeven on blockbuster explosions like Douglas Sirk on lachrymose households

Antagony & Ecstasy

A perfect version of the thing it sets out to be, one of the most intellectual and propulsive of all '80s action films.

Verhoeven's strong suits have always been visual energy and a Rabelaisan realism: a gutsy, jovial way of ripping through social systems.

RoboCop relies for most of its impact -- and, more disturbingly, for much of its comedy -- on an absurd exaggeration of physical force.

Christian Science Monitor

The story amounts to a celebration of brute force in a crudely etched law-and-order context.

It proceeds from a vision, and it takes that vision seriously. It ends up being moving -- and for a comic book of a movie, that's no small achievement.

Paul Verhoeven's glorious sci-fi satire combines searing social comedy with some of the most graphic ultra-violence ever to grace legitimate cinema.

Robocop is a strangely perverse pleasure. Who would expect such a rattletrap concoction to emerge as this summer's sleeper?

Robocop may sound like another bubble-gum science fiction techno-blaster, but it`s more than that. Don`t let the title fool you.

Radio Times

It's Verhoeven's scabrous dissection of American social issues, trashy sitcom culture and corporate greed that makes this comic-book opus a subversive and thought-provoking edge-of-the-seat treat.

Clark Collis
Empire Magazine

A sardonic but perfectly-realised depiction of a mayhem-fuelled near future.

When the law-enforcing RoboCop cleans up corrupt Motown, his victory is satisfying because he's got machinery and morals on his side. RoboCop is where high-tech meets High Noon.

Like the tormented figure at its center, this movie combines the mechanical with the human. And though much of the film is made up of spare parts from cop shows, exploitation flicks and comic books, it nevertheless comes to life.

A sci-fi action film with a silly title that turned out to be a biting satire of big business practices.

deals with Reagan's mad vision of a bellicose, secretive consumer wonderland as the City on the Hill.
