Maybe it wasn't the movie's intention to be comical, but I know it was! The violence, language and characters in general in "RoboCop" is so gloriously over the top, it's like every scene is like when Django is shooting everyone on the plantation, and when he shoots them they got blown back like a gust of wind. The visual effects are marvelous to look at, when there aren't 80 guns going off onscreen at one time. It's cheesy, it's ludicrous, but it's some of the most 80s action fun I've had with a movie, and bless Peter Weller for that chin of his, it did all the acting for him. Don't let your kid watch this movie, because they'll want to, it's a very adult satire on corporations and even movie violence, it almost got the X rating!
