I have difficulties following this argument. Do you actually mean that the
fact that ROBOCOP was an economic success alters the ideological content of
the film. Would it have been considered an "anticorporate, anticapitalist
film" if it failed at the box office? In my view, ROBOCOP is by far the
most interesting action film when it comes to the portrayal of the
conseqences of the neo-libertarianism.
