“Drop it!” I have to admit, when I was younger, I just loved Robocob (Warning, iTunes link). I had the Nintendo 64 game, I watched the cartoon, and I owned the VHS. For the low cost of $.99 I was able to take a walk down memory lane and relive a part of my childhood. If you haven’t heard much of Robocob, here is the official description:
There’s a new law enforcer in town and he’s half man, half machine! From the director of Total Recall and Basic Instinct comes a “sci-fi fantasy with sleek, high-powered drive” (Time) about an indestructible high-tech policeman who dishes out justice at every turn! When a good cop (Peter Weller) gets blown away by some ruthless criminals, innovative scientists and doctors are able to piece him back together as an unstoppable crime-fighting cyborg called “Robocop.”Impervious to bullets and bombs, and equipped with high-tech weaponry, Robocop quickly makes a namefor himself by cleaning up the crime-ridden streets of violence-ravaged Detroit. But despite his new, hardened exterior, Robocop is tormented by scraps of memory of his former life, and relives vividnightmares of his own death at the hands of the vicious killers. Now he is out to seek more than justice…he wants revenge! “Fast, furious and entertaining” (L.A. Daily News), Robocop is “a fiercely paced action film” (Screen International) that doesn’t let up on the thrills.
Head over to iTunes now with your dollar and rent yourself a campy classic, but you better head over quickly, Robocob is only on sale from Jun. 24, 2008 – Jul. 01, 2008.
