Plot Outline:

In the year 2028 OmniCorp has made billions in robot drone technology and is now looking to increase profits by deploying this technology on the home front. They see the perfect opportunity when officer Alex Murphy - husband and good cop - is critically injured in the line of duty. Merging man and machine, the first RoboCop is introduced - but in trying to control the robot, they forget about the man inside - a man still seeking justice. -- Chris Kavan

My biggest issue with Robocop is that is really should have been rated R - by taking away the brutality, it loses all its power. Also, while Joel Kinnaman is a good actor - he's pretty much wasted in the lead role and the supporting cast isn't much better. A solid action film - but lacking depth and teeth - about as worthless a remake as Total Recall.

RoboCop (2014) probably is as unnecessary as its detractors claim it to be but unlike a lot of similar films which are eager to dwell on the anticipated carnage, it's admirable for being so interested in the ideas it brings up with the premise. However, Joel Kinnaman struggles as the hero. There's times where he's very wooden and others when he's quite likeable. The supporting cast surrounding Kinnaman overwhelms him with the likes of Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, Michael K. Lewis, and even Abbie Cornish gives a better performance than Kinnaman. The effects and stylistic choices are fine enough but I was surprised by the lack of action which you'd think they'd cram as much as possible into the 105 minute running time.

An extremely lame reboot of the classic original. This version features much better special effects, but also has toned down PG-13 violence, a boring lead actor in the title role and, most shockingly of all, an almost complete lack of action! A boring dud.

A restyled version.

“Make him more tactical. Let's go with black.”

A remake of "Robocop" and we get this whole debate again. Was this remake really necessary ? Was the audience really waiting for this ? Does it add anything valuable to the original version? Does it equal the original version or is it just a pale shadow ? In my opinion this is again a needless and unnecessary discussion. Meanwhile we are already at the next "The Amazing Spiderman". "Superman" also has taken his cape out of the closet a number of times. And another "Godzilla" is ready to hit the theaters. Nobody is making a fuss about that. But oops, they are going to make a reboot of "Robocop". A 27 year old cult movie. A timeless classic that had great impact in all areas. An ultra-hard SF...

"Robocop" by Yojimbo

A detective who suffered horrific injuries from an attempt on his life is transformed into a cyborg by a multinational corporation intent on introducing robotic weaponry into the police force. The original Robocop was seminal science fiction laced with social commentary and served up with a wide streak of black humour, and true to form this pointless remake takes the body of the original story and eviscerates it in order to replace everything that made it good with soulless, generic, computer generated production line mediocrity. The dark humour that was the essence of the original film is all but gone with only Samuel L. Jackson's media propagandist, who is but a stepping stone away from the denizens of the real Fox News, making any attempt at providing the incisive wit of the idea. The ...

Hopefully a one and done reboot

This had the chance to be a great update to a classic 80's movie but fell short. They put together a decent cast and I actually enjoyed most of the changes to the main character. Two big problems, it's rated PG-13 and the ending. Michael Keaton was never a believable bad guy. No fault on the actor, the script did a poor job of moving him from CEO wanting to improve the world to crazy business guy trying to cover his ass. The special effects were good, but the loss of some of the cheese from the original made it feel like a very generic action flick at times.
They tried to play up the political angle in this one saying that the rest of the world was better off due to the US using drones for security and America was in disarray because they were not. Yet Detroit looks like a clean, well to...
