Robocop isn’t just about a cyborg kicking ass and taking names. It’s a meaningful story about self-identity. Leaders in the City of Detroit are looking for technological advances in the police force from Omni Consumer Products. OCP first non-human prototype, the ED-209, ends up killing a board member from OCP in a demonstration. Meanwhile, James Murphy (Peter Weller), joins the Detroit force and is on a mission with his partner Anne Lewis (Nancy Allen) to go after a gang. As a result, Murphy gets massacred by shotgun fire. But as Oscar Goldman once said, “Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. The Detroit police force seems to be very impressed with Robocop. But Anne notices whose face is behind the helmet. He doesn't know who he is, but he recognizes clues that tell him that his name is Murphy, and he ultimately goes in search of his killers to seek revenge. He finds out that his death goes all the way up the OCP CEO, Dick Jones (Ronny Cox). Knowing that this event could happen and set up a loophole in Robocop’s memory He also sent the ED-209 to destroy Robocop. But ED-209 failed because his feet were too bulky and he could not walk down the steps. Badly injured, Robocop finds Anne and goes to a steel mill to lay low for a while. The movie ends with the people that were trying to killed Murphy, led by Clarence Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith) attempting to kill Robocop with high power rifles. Robocop over powers them all, goes back to OCP, and confronts and kills Dick Jones.

The blogs are not supposed to be plot summaries of the movies, but your reactions/takes on the flick.
