Storyline

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.

Trivia

During the scene where RoboCop is presented to the public, you can read in the bottom headline news "Brazilian surfer Gui Padilha..". This is a homage to director José Padilha's son. See more »

Goofs

Mattox speaks of how Murphy's armor will be able to withstand anything up to .50 caliber ammunition. This is a gross simplification since impact velocity, mass, jacketing and other factors apart from caliber will also greatly affect the effectiveness of a bullet. See more »

Quotes

Tom Pope: I give you Sergeant Jack Freeman, masculinity incarnate. Led Pittsburgh SWAT for five years, now confined to a wheelchair.
Liz Kline: I think I can see the appeal.
Dr. Dennett Norton: No.
Tom Pope: What? Why?
Dr. Dennett Norton: Well, check the psych evaluation. He's far too unstable.
Tom Pope: He's trying to say that he has a temper.
Dr. Dennett Norton: Have you any idea what we'd be putting him through? The psychological strain requires someone emotionally balanced. We have to be scientific. I mean, we're not exactly selling a soft drink here, are we?

A milestone of Hollywood cinema goes Twilight
27 February 2014 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

This is what happens when you remake a classic but can't decide if you want to go for a fresh take of the story or if you want to imitate the original. In this case, the director/writer decided that it'd tell original story as well as copying some aspect of the original. Well, it doesn't work.

At the start, the film has an interesting original twist: Abbie Cornish's character, Clara Murphy, is revealed to be the main love interest for Joel Kinnaman's character, Alex Murphy. Unfortunately, instead of exploring this new take of the story, the writers decided to also include the robo character to create some kind of love triangle.

This is pointless because unlike Peter Weller in the original, the actor who plays RoboCop in this film is completely devoid of any charisma. On top of this, he's also a VERY AWFUL actor. As a result, the audience's sympathy immediately defaults back to Peter Weller's original 80s character, which ultimately is pretty cool.

And here's the problem: Robocop's character doesn't get shown that often until the later half of the story. Instead, the story decides to retell the whole encounter of Kinnaman and his bride from the original film. So you are now forced to watch some cringe-worthy scenes of the chemistry-less couple until the end reveals the real pairing of the story.

One would also think that since the original is pretty outdated in terms of FX, this one will at least have some good one. Unfortunately that's not the case either. Sure, it's slightly better but it's nothing extraordinary. In fact, most scenes look bland and lack the biting social satire/gut-wrenching action of the original.

In summary: disappointing remake of a classic. The only redeeming factor is the introduction of the new character played by Marianne Jean-Baptiste. But since she's not even featured that often in the story, the whole point of a retelling ended up being moot. For audience who are tired of zombies and romances between vampires and werewolves, RoboCop is for you.
