In a dystopic, crime ridden Detroit, a newly transfered police officer is remade into an indestructible cybernetic cop after being dismembered by a gang of thugs in an abandoned warehouse. Reborn as RoboCop, he is programmed to serve and protect the citizens of Detroit and eliminate the rampant crime in the city streets so that a massive citywide reconstruction project can get under way. But once he has completed his task, he sets his sights on the corruption inside Omni Consumer Products – the corporation that created him.
