Dutch filmmaker Paul Verhoeven occupies a unique place in modern filmmaking on both sides of the Atlantic. His blending of social satire with more explicit themes such as violence and sex are evident in films like Soldier of Orange (1977), Spetters (1980), The Fourth Man (1983), Total Recall (1990), Basic Instinct (1992), Starship Troopers (1997), and the infamous cult film Showgirls (1995), just to name a few. His breakthrough film here in America, RoboCop, contains that mix of satire and violence while also letting loose with special effects in the director’s first Hollywood movie. Originally released by Orion Pictures theatrically and previously released on both DVD and Blu-ray by MGM and by Criterion on both Laserdisc and DVD, Arrow has licensed the film for a Limited Edition Blu-ray treatment.

Dead or alive, you're coming with me. I have to check DVD Profiler to see when the last time I purchased this title was. I bet this is going to be an upgrade over whatever version is in my library.

You are losing the old Criterion Commentary on the the Director's Cut but that's fairly redundant all things considered.

As I already have the remastered directors cut, only draw for me are the new extras.

Agree with the reviewer that this is one of the best releases of 2019. Might even put it #1.

I feel the Arrow release has a slightly improved PQ over the MGM/Fox release and until there is a 4k release the best out there. Plus we get the 2.0 & 4.0 lossless audio tracks.


On a sidebar Detroit will soon have a Robocop statue.

Limited edition also comes with this sticker which was not listed in the Arrow specs.
