Product Description

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years--and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it.

When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman), a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Actually pretty good 11 July 2014
    By Richard
    Format:Blu-ray
    This isn't the Robocop I remember but on its own terms I found plenty to enjoy. It's almost impossible to watch this and divorce it from the original (brilliant) film from back in 1987. That was a very different film - this one is a 12 certificate which perhaps tells you all you need to know. It doesn't have the wit or stylish verve and certainly not the violence of its predecessor.

    This time around its Joel Kinnaman who plays Alex Murphy, a cop who is left at deaths door after being targeted by the criminal element. He is rebuilt as our new Robocop and sent out onto the mean streets of Detroit to enforce the law. Complications arise as the line is blurred between man and machine as Alex is caught between his duties, his family and ruthless executives attempting to use him to their own ends. Kinnaman is solid enough in the role but the acting honours lie elsewhere - Gary Oldman is excellent as a conflicted doctor, Michael Keaton is equally great as a hateable son of a gun and Abbie Cornish brings the heart as Mrs Murphy.

    As I said at the top, I found much to enjoy here - the streets of Detroit are suitably gritty, the action is good and it all looks great (admittedly I'm a sucker for big budget sci-fi). There are a few sly nods to the original flick - ED209 is present and correct and the original armour gets a look in.

    Overall, although the modern way of remaking perfectly good films can feel kind of pointless, if you can take this one on its own merits it's a pretty good film. If you're only gonna watch one Robocop film though - head back to 1987.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy remake, somewhat sanitised 29 Jun 2014
    By Mr. Stephen Kennedy TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Format:Blu-ray
    A remake of Robocop, a movie whose biting satire merged with 80’s style exploitation violence, seemed an idea doomed to failure.. and I went in to this movie with correspondingly low expectations. Perhaps that is why I have come away feeling pleasantly surprised. For sure, the raw satirical edge which was in truth enhanced by the gory Verhoeven touch, is missing in this sanitised version. What we do get is a slick retelling of the story, surprisingly more human at its core. There is more questioning here on what it is to be human – and a little less on the dehumanising of culture. That said, the Samuel Jackson character that replaces the witty adverts of the earlier version, personified here as a right wing political editorial show, is amusing and occasionally pointed, but overegged.
    What adds class to the proceedings is the surrounding players – following this journey from human cop to Robocop and then trying to find his way back, is a bunch of fine actors. Gary Oldman is hardly stretching his acting talents here, but he makes his sympathetic scientist who has angst about crossing moral boundaries, but can be tempted to do so, genuinely believable. Michael Keaton plays a more conventional character who is just what he seems to be – a manipulative CEO who is only interested in the bottom line… but he manages to bring a few of his acting tics to give a little quirkiness to the role. Kudos too, to Abbie Cornish as the wife with tough decisions to make.
    The balance of this movie is really much more about a man’s coming to terms with his injuries and how these have changed his life. Doctors have saved him, but have they allowed him the chance to really live?

    1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful 25 July 2014
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    Oh dear. I thought this looked fairly OK from the trailers, but you soon realise that the best bits were in the trailers - the opening scenes give you the impression that the movie's going to depart from the original a bit (fine with that) and explore new territories, but despite a stunning cast (aside from Joel Kinnaman who has all the screen presence of a wooden mannequin) it's a complete bore fest and trips over its own shoelaces far too many times.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Pass on this one, even if it is free. 5 Aug 2014
    Format:DVD
    Level-set. I had very low expectations. I like all sorts of movies. If the movie is entertaining, I'll give it a pretty good rating, even if it is not as deep / dramatic as others would hope.

    Sadly, this movie managed to disappoint despite my very low expectations. It didn't sound like it had the budget / star power to make a solid pass at a cult classic, but still had the potential of being highly entertaining. Turns out, the budget must have been better than I realized, because special effects weren't half bad. Unfortunately, those effects didn't save the film. I would love to blame the horrible acting on a terribly written / thought-out story line, but both were so bad I couldn't tell if one drastically affected the other or not. Attempts at character depth / development totally missed and the story line jumped around way too much for how loosely it was all tied together.

    Even if this film is on TV late at night and there is nothing else to watch.... turn off the TV and what ever you do for the next 2 hours will be more entertaining than this film. Even if that is staring at a blank wall.

    The remake isn't bad in a good way either if that's your thing. Its not enjoyable on a ironic level or just standard want to be entertained level. The CG is ok n all but when everything else around it feels stale & devoid of any sort of real emotion then why bother.

    At best this movie feels like a 'made for TV' feature. And if you STILL want to watch this film after reading this review then you clearly need assistance in making life choices because all common sense has left you.
