“Serve the public trust, protect the innocent, uphold the law.”
“RoboCop (1987)” was a fun movie (much of the blood and gore was taken out when the movie was screened in Singapore but these can be seen in the DVD. One particularly gory scene was Alex Murphy’s execution where his entire right arm is severed by a shotgun blast and a final overhead shot of Lewis sobbing over Murphy on the blood-soaked floor). Set in a crime-ridden Detroit, Michigan in the near future, RoboCop centers on police officer Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) who is brutally murdered and subsequently re-created as a super-human cyborg known as “RoboCop”. The character of RoboCop itself was inspired by Judge Dredd as well as the Marvel Comics superhero Iron Man (one of these comic books can be seen during the convenience store robbery).

“Come quietly or there will be… trouble.”
RoboCop’s (Peter Weller) standard sidearm throughout the whole movie is the “Auto 9”. This is a Beretta M93R machine pistol which was heavily modified for the film, featuring a longer barrel with an enormous compensator/flash hider shaped like a casket, plastic grips and a taller rear sight. Typically, Robocop fires this weapon on its 3-round burst setting.
