4.0 out of 5 stars what this lacks In other things made up for it a movie what should never have worked but it did, 14 Mar 2014

This review is from: Robocop [Blu-ray] [2014] (Blu-ray)
When I heard about this like everyone else I was skeptical about It but truth be told I enjoyed It to me It was a movie when first heard about should never have worked but it did.

Nods to the original such as the theme and and line's were made to be there own but still kept to original.

Joel Kinnaman own version of robocop was done beautiful In the original they never really touch too much on how he had to adapt to being a machine where as this one did.

the rest of the characters such as murphys family who were hardly involved In the original told a tale of how a family have to cope and adapt a loved one on death bed being turned into a cyborgand what effects it has on them.

characters like gary oldmans was brilliant.

only thing I didn't like about this movie that was the villian wasnt a big enough role In the movie but as i said what it lacked In something else took its place

people may or may not like my review of this couldn't care less my point is i enjoyed this movie and if anyone is interested In story telling movies and not violent action movies should watch this.

Not quite. In the original, Murphy was not turned into a cyborg, his brain alone was used as the bio-CPU in an otherwise pure machine. That brain was "wiped" and reprogrammed, nothing of Murphy was supposed to remain. So the machine didn't need to "adapt" to being a machine, it had no past and no family. Of course things didn't quite work out as planned: Robocop had Murphy flashbacks and developed a conscience... and I won't spoil it for others who want to revisit the story. I'll reserve judgement on the remake until I've seen it, but IMHO the original Robocop avoided the obvious Hollywood smaltz treatment, in fact it's still one of the most brutal mainstream movies ever.
