From Brazilian Elite Squad director José Padilha comes RoboCop (2014), a hugely respectful 21st century reimagining of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 classic in which a critically injured police officer (here played by Joel Kinnaman) is transformed into a part-man, part-robot police officer designed to rid Detroit of crime. The film also stars Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson and Gary Oldman. To celebrate the home entertainment release of Padilha’s remake, we have THREE Blu-ray copies of RoboCop to give away to our always compliant civilian readership, courtesy of the generous folk at StudioCanal.

The year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. With robotic drones winning American wars around the globe, they feel ready to translate this technology to the home front. When loving husband, father and skilled cop Alex Murphy (Kinnaman) is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp – headed by CEO Raymond Sellars (Keaton) – utilises its remarkable science of robotics to save his life. Returning to the streets of Detroit equipped with amazing new abilities, Murphy must deal with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
