Classic Action Scene: Robocop (1987) Drug House Raid

This is one of the best action scenes of any of the RoboCop movies; you’ve got one of the all-time great villains in Clarence Boddicker going up against a titanium clad resurrected Alex Murphy.

As one of the commenters on YouTube said, this is the scene where we get to see RoboCop as a true paragon of justice.

He comes face to face with the man who ended his life and wants nothing more than to kill him.

He begins to beat the Hell out of Clarence ready to kill him but when Clarence says “You can’t do this, you’re a cop!” Robo pauses.

“Uphold the Law” comes up on his visor and his system prevents him from killing Clarence; he says “Yes…. I am a cop” and arrests him instead.

It also has lots of guns too though…
