Straight from the days when action movies were watch-able, CGI was a dream, and the name Cameron gave a film buff a hard on. Robocop (though obviously capitalizing on the success of Terminator) is one of Verhoeven's best movies.
Murphy is a cop of future Detroit, and after his brutal murder (and I use 'brutal' like B-ru-tal!) he is resurrected using state of the art technology. He is then turned into Robocop, the Mercedes of crime fighting robots.
With this new hardware he seeks justice against the people who stole his life, and in doing so comes up against ED-209 (kind of a robotic blind chicken the size of a rhino, with the built in arsenal of a Stallone movie and the intelligence to match). Soon the company that built him, the villains, Ed-209 and even the police are after him, but he can't and won't be stopped.
It's about this time in the movie that his creators probably think "Hmmm, maybe we should have installed an off switch before we gave him a gun."
