Robocop
When it arrived on the big screen in 1987, Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop was like a high-voltage jolt of electricity, blending satire, thrills, and abundant violence with such energized gusto that audiences couldn't help feeling stunned and amazed. The movie was a huge hit, and has since earned enduring cult status as one of the seminal science fiction films of the 1980s. Followed by two sequels, a TV series, and countless novels and comic books, this original RoboCop is still the best by far, largely due to the audacity and unbridled bloodlust of director Verhoeven. However, the reasons many enjoyed the film are also the reasons some will surely wish to avoid it. Critic Pauline Kael called the movie a dubious example of "gallows pulp," and there's no denying that its view of mankind is bleak, depraved, and graphically violent. In the Detroit of the near future, a policeman (Peter Weller) is brutally gunned down by drug-dealing thugs and left for dead, but he survives (half of him, at least) and is integrated with state-of-the-art technology to become a half-robotic cop of the future, designed to revolutionize law enforcement. As RoboCop holds tight to his last remaining shred of humanity, he relentlessly pursues the criminals who "killed" him. All the while, Verhoeven (from a script by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner) injects this high-intensity tale with wickedly pointed humor and satire aimed at the men and media who cover a city out of control. --Jeff Shannon


Predator
Rambo meets Alien in this terrific science-fiction thriller from 1987, directed by John McTiernan just a year before Die Hard made him Hollywood's most sought-after director of action-packed blockbusters. Arnold Schwarzenegger leads an elite squad of U.S. Army commandos to a remote region of South American jungle, where they've been assigned to search for South American officials who've been kidnapped by terrorists. Instead they find a bunch of skinned corpses hanging from the trees and realize that they're now facing a mysterious and much deadlier threat. As the squad is picked off one by one, Arnold finds himself pitted against a hideous alien creature that's heavily armed and wearing a spacesuit enabling the creature to render itself invisible. The title says it all in describing the relentless, escalating action that follows, maintained by McTiernan with an abundance of visual flair. The film's special effects are still impressive, and stunning locations in the Mexican jungles create a combined atmosphere of verdant beauty and imminent danger. The plot doesn't hold up to much scrutiny, but the movie's so exciting and tightly paced that its weaknesses seem irrelevant. --Jeff Shannon


Terminator
This is the film that cemented Schwarzenegger's spot in the action-brawn firmament, and it was well deserved. He's chilling as the futuristic cyborg who kills without fear, without love, without mercy. James Cameron's story and direction are pared to the bone and all the more creepy. But don't overlook the contributions of Linda Hamilton, who more than holds her own as the Terminator's would-be victim, Sarah Connor--thus creating, along with Sigourney Weaver in Alien, a new generation of rugged, clear-thinking female action stars. It's surprising how well this film holds up, and how its minimalist, malevolent violence is actually way scarier than that of its far more expensive, more effects-laden sequel. --Anne Hurley

Amazon's prices are always changing, but this seems to be a classic example of ridiculous inflation when you should be getting packaged deals for less. Look at these stats.

Right now on Amazon this bluray deal is still $50 + right now. I think it's around $54...now why pay $54 when you can buy each single dvd for less?
Believe me, go look, RoboCop and Predator are both $9.99 and Terminator is $8.99. So you'll be spending $29 instead of $50+, what kind of deal is that? haha, not a deal at all...come on Amazon, you're better than that!

It's weird how these 3 OLDER & WEAK blu-ray versions, which you can find in bins for about $5 each (i.e. $15 for all 3), are being sold as a set for $50! The original Blu-ray releases of these 3 films all looked terrible. There are newer and better Blu-rays of each of these films, and they now sell for about $8-10 each. This set is a rip off in quality and pricing.

To give you an idea of what you'd be getting, here is my review of the original Robocop Blu-ray, which is included in this set:
----------------
I'm not reviewing the film here - I'm assuming the reader is already familiar with it and likes it (otherwise (s)he would not be reading about the BluRay). Robocop is like a comic book hero/story, and this is one of the very best films that captures a comic book world, IMO.

I picked up the BluRay at FutureShop for $8 and compared it with the DVD I already owned. The audio sounds the same to me as on the DVD. The only special feature is the trailer, same as the DVD. The BluRay does have a bonus that's not on the DVD - 3 trailers for other films. Totally useless! The video does look cleaner and clearer than the DVD... but that does not mean it's GOOD!

This movie needs a serious remastering. It is so inconsistent and so grainy that much of it looks like it was transfered from VHS tapes rather than from master studio film reels. Was the film actually shot so poorly back in 1987? I doubt it.

Overall, this was a missed opportunity for fans of this film. However, If you like the film and don't already own it and find it for less than $10, I'm sure you'll enjoying the BluRay, as it's a better than the DVD.

Not really a review (although I think all three movies are excellent!)
However...the "list price" for the three pack is $109.94, and the "sale price" is $98.99. If you hop on over to the blu-ray Robocop page, you see the "three better together" like(the same three blu-ray titles) you see:

Total List Price: $74.97
Price For All Three: $50.47

So.. shop over there and save $50! Or buy them individually and still save at least $25 at full MSRP.

Much better than I expected from a #4 evolution of the Rambo series. Better filming, better acting, good story line. They didn't need the nudity or rape scenes, which kept this out of reach for younger kids. Rambo does represent the truth about politics, leaders, soldiers, and citizens. I can see that a real war hero would have an almost impossible time coming home and coping with normal life. I mean the type of hero that killed many, saw thousands die, and faced death daily. Rambo makes you feel the pain, the anger torwards his own country, and the war that rages on in his mind.
