"Robocop is as tightly worked as a film can be, not a moment or line wasted. "
- Variety
"A first-rate production full of nonstop action and inventive special effects but what truly makes Robocop spellbinding is a superior script."
- TV Guide Magazine
"A sci-fi action film with a silly title that turned out to be a biting satire of big business practices."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Most thriller and special-effects movies come right off the assembly line...RoboCop is a thriller with a difference."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"It was this love of mayhem combined with a biting comic attack on neo-fascist corporatism - most notably seen in the TV ads for products like the apocalyptic board game Nuke 'Em - which helped raise Robocop above the common sci-fi herd. "
- Clark Collis, Empire
"Verhoeven strives for bloodcurdling, darkly comic eloquence. He gives us heart with the hardware. Savagery with smarts.[..] With its droll underpinnings, Robocop does for cyborgs and Detroit what "Blade Runner" did for androids and L.A. "
- Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Despite a level of lurid violence that may offend many, this movie has a motor humming inside. It's been assembled with ferocious, gleeful expertise, crammed with humor, cynicism and jolts of energy. In many ways, it's the best action movie of the year. [17 Jul 1987] "
- Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times
"Like the tormented figure at its center, this movie combines the mechanical with the human. And though much of the film is made up of spare parts from cop shows, exploitation flicks and comic books, it nevertheless comes to life."
- Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
