in this deft science-fiction masterpiece from Dutch director Paul Verhoeven, which delivers on both violent action and satirical fronts. Peter Weller gives a great mime performance as the Detroit cop of the near future, resurrected as a cyborg, who goes head-hunting the sadistic gang responsible for his plight as his human memory begins to return. But it's Verhoeven's scabrous dissection of American social issues, trashy sitcom culture and corporate greed that makes this comic-book opus such a subversive and thought-provoking edge-of-the-seat treat.
A police officer in a future Detroit ravaged by crime is seemingly killed in the line of duty, but is rebuilt as a law-enforcing cyborg by the corporation that has taken over running the force. He begins to remember his human life and seeks to bring his killers to justice - a mission that leads him to turn on his corrupt corporate masters. Sci-fi thriller, starring Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Ronny Cox and Miguel Ferrer.
