The 1987 film "RoboCop" isn't just a slick action thriller with a dollop of humanity. It's a cynical look at what happens when corporations invade on the "public good."
That’s enough reason for Andrew Heaton and his merry “EconPop” warriors to deconstruct the film’s political messages.
“The Economics of RoboCop” ignores the mediocre 2015 remake, focusing on Peter Weller’s transformation from cop to robotic crime fighter. Along the way, the film shows what would happen if a dastardly corporate executive tried to fight crime with his own robot army.
