This very funny movie stars Emilio Estevez as a young man in search of a job. He finds one that he can really sink his teeth into: he becomes a man who repossesses cars that people have not kept up payments on. One day, he comes across a 1964 Chevy Malibu with a strange air about it–which is because aliens from outer space may be involved. This movie is different from the usual fare and deserves a watch.

In Detroit in the near future, a policeman (Peter Weller) is shot and killed by drug dealers.

The operation is performed at OCP–Omni Consumer Products, the corporation that runs the futuristic city–and RoboCop is out on the streets defending justice. His former partner Officer Anne Lewis (Nancy Allen) tries unsuccessfully to help RoboCop remember his past as he pursues the criminals who tried to kill him. Followed by two sequels.
