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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars The new future of law enforcement 11 Jun 2014
    By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    A remake/reimagining/call it what you will of Robocop (Special Edition)[DVD] [1988], the 1980's action with dark satire near future movie that remains a very fond memory for those of a certain generation.

    As with the original, this version is set in near future Detroit, and sees Police officer Alex Murphy left on the brink of death by criminals, and brought back as a part man part machine law enforcer by the ruthless Omnicorp.

    Murphy has to fight to deal with those who tried to bring him down, and to regain his humanity.

    WARNING: CITIZENS WHO ARE HUGE FANS OF THE ORIGINAL ARE LIKELY TO BE HIGHLY UNHAPPY ABOUT THIS VERSION. YOU ARE ADVISED TO STEER WELL CLEAR.

    Given that it's over twenty five years since the original - which makes those of us who saw it at the cinema back then feel so very old - this tries to be a bit of an updating. By getting into areas in regards to technology which nobody saw as being issues back then. Namely the use of drone technology.

    Thus this starts off with a look at a world where such technology has produced robots which have allowed the US to go into Iran. All this introduced by Samuel L Jackson as a tv political commentator.

    These opening scenes do present a potentially thought provoking look at the possibilities of such things, thankfully never getting didactic about it. But they lack any real satire, particularly of the kind that the original managed so swell. And show you right from the start that this is a film which takes itself too seriously.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Actually pretty good 11 July 2014
    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?
