Robocop: How Violence Has Shaped an Era and What’s Changed

It’s a nice 70 degree sunny day in La Vista, Nebraska as my mother gathers her things and leaves for the store. I rush up to my father who is sitting watching TV, “Can we watch it? Can I put the movie in?” I shout. My father smiles, “Well, since your mother is gone, let’s do it!” I run over to the entertainment center and file through all of our VHS tapes, most of them in black cases and not their original covers. I pop the VHS into the VCR and sit back with my father as the opening city shot of Detroit (which is actually Dallas) and then the title of the film comes on in metallic form: ROBOCOP. This film truly captivated my love for film without my knowing until I became much older and attended Arizona State University to study film. As raw and violent it may have been back in 1987, this film was not only a stepping stone for director Paul Verhoeven, but brought the conversation about violence and ethics in film to the forefront.
