PROMO: The 10 Best Science Fiction Movie Face-Offs

Robocop: Robocop vs. Boddicker (and others)

Paul Verhoeven's 1987 film aspired to be as much satire as it did sci-fi/action movie and it succeeded, partially, at both. The film's protagonist, cyborg-cop-to-be Officer Alex Murphy (Peter Weller, perhaps cast because of his robotic tendencies) squares off against a who's who of creep all-stars, played by Ronnie Cox, Miguel Ferrer, Ray Wise and Kurtwood Smith, whose pre-That 70s Show menace is deeply unsettling. The film is now being remade (of course) but there's still time to enjoy the original untainted.
