In 2028, multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of military "robot soldier" technology, supplying the US Military with mechanical soldiers that are used overseas. OmniCorp wants to sell their products for use in civilian law enforcement in the United States but public opinion, embodied by the Dreyfus Act, prevents this. OmniCorp CEO Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton) asks his marketing team, in conjunction with scientist Dr. Dennett Norton (Gary Oldman), to create a new law enforcement product by combining human and machine that he believes can be "sold" to the American public. They begin looking for a permanently injured police officer to act as the core of their prototype.
Policeman Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is severely injured by a car bomb planted on orders from crime boss Antoine Vallon. Norton picks Murphy for the RoboCop program.
