DIRECTOR: PAUL VERHOEVEN
CAST: PETER WELLER, NANCY ALLEN, KURTWOOD SMITH, DAN O'HERLIHY, RONNY COX
For a strange few years, beginning with this runaway hit, the perverse imagination and earthy humor of Verhoeven seemed to synch up perfectly with the desires of the American multiplex-going public. In dystopian Detroit, private sector Omni Consumer Products have taken over policing and made the ultimate law enforcement machine from leftover bits of peace officer Peter Weller—but they didn’t bank on their invention making his way up the corporate ladder of crime. I’d buy that for a dollar!
