Robocop: The final word

One of my great pleasures in life is when I'm watching Robocop with somebody who is seeing it for the very first time, and every single time - without fail -  they say the final word of dialogue one second before the big man actually says it.

The film is an absolute masterpiece of gorgeous gore and biting satire and brutalist neon architecture, but the timing of that beat in the final seconds is absolutely unparalleled in all of cinema.
