About the Movie
In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and OmniCorp – the world’s leader in robot technology – sees a golden opportunity to reap billions for their company. 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, OmniCorp grabs their chance to build a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and will stop at nothing – no matter the cost to Alex – to make sure the program succeeds. But OmniCorp never counted on one thing: there is still a man fighting inside the machine.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film has lots of energized mayhem, and Murphy's unraveling of the conspiracy against him isn't dumbed down, yet it's as if the comic-book action poetry of the original has been encased in a suit of generic armor.
Rotten: This Robo-reboot tries fiercely to update the satirical punch and stylistic perversity Paul Verhoeven's 1987 original. It's a futile gesture.
Fresh: RoboCop becomes less a work of aspirational coolness and more a piece of political satire - and not necessarily a bad one.
Rotten: There are some interesting things about "RoboCop," and - no, wait, that's a lie.
I really enjoyed this! People keep comparing it to the original, it's a reboot not a sequel. It takes the idea from the first and reimagines it! Plus, although I loved it, the original wasn't some deep meaningful masterpiece either. Great acting for the most part and fantastic special effects. The only problem I had with this movie is that there really isn't a true antagonist, at least not a single antagonist, but still great!
Not the original with better special effects
The movie is pretty amazing and talks about some issues that are occurring as we speak… People have to stop trying to compare it to the original. A remake is just a way to tell a new story using known characters, not just telling the same story with better special effects...
Stick with the original
This is a toothless PG13 remade of a 80's. I won't buy that for a Dollar.
