RoboCop: The Review

June 13, 2014 9:00 am

In 2028 Detroit, when Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a lovinghusband, father and good cop – is critically injured in the line of duty, then OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.  So after Murphy is nearly killed by thugs, he’s built into RoboCop. Murphy, the film’s hero,  just after he’s been blown up and encased in his life-saving metal srobocop-blu-ray-cover-51uit tries to reintegrate himself with his wife and wonders what it truly means to be human.

RoboCop is a film that is for a wide range of film fans. There is the expected action but also a good story with a touch of romance. Samuel L. Jackson as a TV personality was also a nice touch; he is always going to be a fan favourite.

Murphy is a good cop doing his best to stop crime and corruption in Detroit until OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders but they never forgot one thing, there is still a man inside the machine. Robocop is good from start to finish. It keeps the audience interested throughout the entire film by including a good story with good action which overall leaves you wanting more.

The remake of  the 1987 classic  is an overall solid action film.  While it’s far better than it could have been, this RoboCop remake still fails to offer an improvement over the original. RoboCop is out on DVD now.

**** 4/5
