"Robocop" reboot surpasses original

I avoided the Robocop reboot when it appeared in theaters earlier this year. Most reboots in my experience fail to live up to the originals. But I was pleasantly surprised when I finally gave this movie a chance when I streamed it this weekend. 36 more words



I am reviewing the updated Robocop movie which is an excellent film. This movie has been released on blu ray and dvd quite recently in the UK and where as the original was more of a violent thriller, this movie is more of a science fiction film. 336 more words

RoboCop (2014)

Far better than it had any right to be, “RoboCop” 2014, from Jose Padiha, effectively cribs just enough from Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 original, while also creating a distinctly original world of its own. 466 more words


Review: Robocop (2014)

After being severely injured in an explosion, police detective Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is in critical condition. Michael Keaton is Raymond Sellars,  the CEO of Omnicorp, the company responsible for placing robot soldiers overseas and keeping people “safe.” He wants to find a way to sway the public opinion in U.S., who disagrees with placing robots in the streets, and sees Alex Murphy as his only hope. 332 more words
