    I was happy to finally have all three original Robocop movies on Blu-ray and in a nice compact form. Yep, don't let the size of the case fool you, a lot of Blu-rays are going this route, which is fine by me. The first two movies are certainly not as "friendly" like the 2014 remake, they are very graphic and violent, so not exactly kid's movies. If you enjoyed Deadpool, you probably would enjoy these (since he even makes a reference to Robocop in the movie [no spoilers]). Robocop tells the story of Frank Murphy, a transfer who has come to Detroit Metro West PD. He and his partner, Ann Lewis track down the thugs of a recent bank robbery and the main antagonist, Clarence Bodikker (Kurtwood Larson Smith, also Red Forman in 'That 70's Show'). After being gunned down, OCP begins working on rebuilding Murphy into Robocop. Soon, Robocop begins his struggle with who he is, what he is and what has happened to him and his old life. Robocop 2 picks up nearly where the first one leaves off, Detroit police are now on strike due to salary and pension cuts as OCP goes forward with plans to take the city private and build Delta City. The new antagonist, a drug lord named Cain has been pushing a drug called Nuke. After a failed attempt at a second Robocop project, Cain is soon chosen to become the new law enforcement cyborg with Nuke being his Achilles's heel to make him obey. From there, Cain figures out how to break free of control resulting in a massive fight between him and Robocop. Robocop 3 centers around a continuing story (no specific time frame, maybe only months) of OCP going forward with plans to demolish Old Detroit and build Delta City with the help of hired mercs nicknamed Rehabs. Soon Robocop must choose between helping people who are being forced into the streets or his programming that prevents him from helping because the mercs are hired by OCP. Robocop 3 errs on the side of "marketable" with much less violence and gratuitous bloodshed. It also features some humor that seems out of place for this franchise (think Terminator: Rise of the Machines) and does not have Peter Weller returning to fill the role. It's not really terrible, but it just doesn't have the same feeling as the first two. All in all, a nice find and definitely worth the money to have them all in one neat and tidy set!

    Classic in 4K w/Sequels

    The initial release of the original ROBOCOP on blu was great & cheap! So to bump up the price for a new remaster is kind of o.k. if it were just for the new 4K (highly deserved) edition. But, since you get the sequels of descending quality to boot, it's certainly worth an upgrade. And for collector/librarians such as myself, it's always nice to consolidate several titles into one small box on the shelf. ROBOCOP 2 is a lot of fun. Part 3, directed by cult fave Fred Dekker (NIGHT OF THE CREEPS, MONSTER SQUAD) is more of a curiosity piece concerning what happens when a visionary director is offered a paying Hollywood job instead of good money for his own projects. Catch this one on sale and you're made in the shade!

    It's been many years back when I saw Robocop for the first time and all I can remember is how great a movie it was to watch with lots of action but these days I am so spoiled by the newer technology movies like Iron Man which of course show realism and great acting. Robocop 2 and Robocop 3 was a disaster to me due to it being geared more for children than us adults; in other words, silly kid being the big boss in Robocop 2 and the other little kid being a computer geek in Robocop 3. I also own the new remake of Robocop and it's very good but still can't match the Iron Man Trilogy.

    A great blu-ray set for fans of the RoboCop franchise. This set includes the 4K remastered RoboCop 1, which looks amazing. Both the second and third films also look great. As for bonus features, the first film has MOST of the bonus features from the 20th Anniversary set ported over, I think it's missing a photo gallery from that release, the disc also includes one new bonus which is a Q&A with the cast and crew. RC 2 and 3 are bare bones. I definitely recommend this set.

    Your not looking for a cinematic masterpiece here, but you will find is an solid transfer quality of the original 3 robocop movies. Except the first film (which is the only one that matters) there aren't any special features but a trailer. BUT the transfer is pretty clear and definitely worth having if you're a collector. Especially for the price you shouldn't turn it away. This isn't the director's cut version though....unless it was mislabeled. Just the remastered version.

    i've loved these films for years it's great to have them on br. nothing compares to the old 80's action flicks. they weren't the best ever but they weren't bad either. i don't know why but films from the 80's were just different most of them i could & have watched dozens of times over the years. most movies now get boring after a few watches but robocop is still fun to watch even 30 yrs later.

    RoboCop Trilogy Blu-ray Collection

    This is in response to Elite Member cujoe's review. His name was Alex Murphy not Frank. Frank was the name of the Cop who was killed when Alex first arrived to the Police Department. The Cop's name was Frank Fredrickson. Now these movies are Awesome.

    I really enjoyed the first 2 films, didn't even bother watching third film again, its garbage. The ultra violence is here in all its glory! Peter Weller being blown apart is very graphic. I needed to see a real Robocop movie after that atrocity remake. PG13! Who makes a PG13 Robocop? Anyway the sound and video look great. Grab the collection if you can its a great time.
