Runaway (1984)

An American science fiction written and directed by Michael Crichton, starring Gene Simmons, Tom Selleck and Kirstie Alley.
A cop who takes care of runaway robots gets a new partner. Together they struggle against a man who is involved with illegal computer chips.
So stereotypical and so predictable! I'm really glad that computers and robots don't speak to us now. The main character was the standard issue "loose cannon" overzealous cop. The female villain was the main adult lead from the Look Who's Talking series, which I found amusing. The male villain was crappily acted by Gene Simmons and had all the "hi tech" tools to fight the cops. Although he looks the part, his dialogue was not up to my standards. Please refer to my previous post that contains a universal plot summary because it applies here. Overall, Hollywood trash. I rate this poor because it had a few amusing aspects amidst it's retro '80s shitstorm.
