RoboCop (1987)


After being transferred to the crime-ridden dystopic city of Detroit, Officer Murphy is gun down in a hail of bullets to the point of near-death. However, a local businessman decides to use the wounded officer as a test subject for his new project; so he retrofits his body and makes into a powerful crime fighting cyborg. Unfortunately, RoboCop’s suppressed memories are surfacing and now he’s after the men who took everything away from him. This is a fantastic, gritty look at the near future with great performances and a lot of action. I think it has stood the test of time as being one of the best mordern sci-fi films and even now the special effects are very impressive.
