Robocop Review

roboco 2014“In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center 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.”

I didn’t have any expectation for the movie, the previews didn’t show much and the movie ended up just how I thought. A remake of Robocop minus the amazing stunts and visual effects. The actor did a very poor job at becoming Robocop. Where are the villains? The story line I find could have been well built but they dropped the ball within minutes at the beginning. The end fight was too quick and too easy for the hero, Robocop. The visual effects were poor, I found Robocop to look like a match box instead of a very expensive robot.

The movie was just not exciting, true say I was never a Robocop fan, but this pays no justice to the original Robocop. If you are missing Robocop, go see the old school one, It had better effect and story line than this one.
