One could lavish tons of "intelligent" and "visionary" compliments upon Paul Verhoeven's badass sci-fi flick Robocop, and those props would be wholly deserved. But come on, now: Whenever we re-watch Peter Weller's law-enforcing robot in action, the biggest thrills always come from Verhoeven's willingness to go that extra mile in terms of over-the-top gore and shoot-'em-up mayhem. There's something about a thug being submerged in toxic waste and then getting crushed into bits by a car's front fender that never gets old.
