ROBOCOP is a remake of the 1987 film about a badly injured policeman who is transformed into a powerful crime fighting cyborg. It is rated 12A for moderate violence, injury detail and infrequent strong language.
There are a number of intense action scenes, in which Robocop fights against criminals and villains. These include heavy punches and blows, as well as exchanges of gunfire. In one scene, a brief blood spurt is seen when a man is shot.
There are also scenes in which we see the injuries that were sustained by the policeman. The images shown are mostly medical in nature - for example, we see his bandaged severed leg, dressings on his badly burned body, and a photo of his damaged eye. After he has been converted into 'Robocop', there are also images of his brain being operated on, as well as sight of the few parts of his body that remain intact underneath the electronics and mechanisms.
There is a single clear use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as a bleeped but clearly identifiable use of 'motherf**ker'.
The film also contains discreetly implied sex scenes, references to drugs, and mild bad language.
No-one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. No-one younger than 12 may rent or buy a 12 rated video or DVD.
