FORGOTTEN CLASSIC: R.O.T.O.R.

By 09.24.09

Today’s Forgotten Classic is 1989′s R.O.T.O.R., which stands for the awesomely nonsensical

Robotic
Officer
Tactical
Operation
Research

Basically, he’s like an evil version of Robocop, but instead of being made of shiny metal, he’s just a guy in a motorcycle suit with a bad mustache.  He even carries the same kind of gun as Robocop, but I’m sure all the similarities were purely coincidental since Robocop came out the year before.  In this clip, R.O.T.O.R. battles his nemesis, skunk-haired bull dyke.  Also pay special attention to the delightfully loose editing and slow reaction shots that make everyone seem like they have the reflexes of a sloth with bell’s palsy.  (trailer and more clips below).

Thanks to Fek’lhr for the tip
