Storyline

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.

Robocrap
13 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

OK, this movie probably isn't a 1 out of 10, but when you remake a movie as memorable as the original Robocop, you'd better do something interesting. They didn't.

No, I didn't watch the original first, I watched it afterwards and that is the problem. You watch Robocop 2014 and think "Meh, pretty entertaining" and then you watch the original and get taken on a roller coaster ride.

I'm not going to re-hash the original movie here, it would be a waste of effort. Just do yourself a favour and don't waste your time on Robo 2014, search out the original Robocop. You won't be disappointed. The flick isn't nearly as dated as you would expect aside from the clothes and the vehicles. The humour is dark, dirty and noir at its best. Detroit looks nasty - the way anyone who has never been to 2014 Detroit would expect it to look. The criminals are drugged out wackos - the type of criminals you expect to see in 2014. The cops are cannon fodder

  • unlike the cops of 2014, who are far more trigger happy and eager to


save their own skins. Clearly Paul Verhoeven didn't understand the magnitude of the police state that America would become - google the number of American's in prison if you doubt me.

Really simple here, folks - watch Robocop 1987, not this generic crap.

Hollywood, you would have made more money re-releasing the original.
