Editorial Reviews

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 - 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 to build 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.

Nine Things about the Movie "Robocop" (2014)

1. This is a "remake" of the classic 1987 film. But while the name and basic plot is the same, this is a very different movie.

2. It's set in the year 2028 where the Omnicorp company sells robot police to the U.S. military for use in countries overseas. But they are not allowed in the U.S. because Americans are paranoid about robots running law enforcement.

3. When police officer Alex Murphy gets blown up in front of his house, Omnicorp gets the idea to take what's left of him and make him a robot. This is done in the hopes that by retaining a basic human identity, Americans will accept robotic police. But Murphy's human ethics conflict with his robotic programming, and it causes problems.

4. Both versions of the movie are making social commentaries on their times. The 1987 version was a satire on 80's American consumer culture and excess. The 2014 version is more of a commentary on national security, and the boundaries of technology and humanity.

5. The 1987 version was rated R and was very violent and bloody for its time. This version does have a lot of shootouts and killing, but there is almost no blood. It is rated PG-13.

6. In the 1987 version Murphy is actually killed and resurrected, but his human memories are all wiped. In this version, Murphy isn't actually killed; leaving his humanity intact is a key plot element.

7. This version is much more philosophical than the original. It's partly an existential meditation on identity, free will, and what makes us human.

8. One of the more interesting changes is the character of Murphy's partner, Lewis. In the 1987 original, Lewis was a white woman. In this version, Lewis is a black man.

Note: I will eventually update and replace this review when I acquire the Blu-ray.

Had a chance to go see this the other day after a fresher, more recent viewing of the remastered original on Blu-ray (my first time seeing that one since I was a kid). And I have to say I was pretty surprised by how much I liked this remake. When I first saw the trailer, I honestly thought it would turn out to be some kind of shallow action movie that would only be hindered by its PG-13 rating. But what I got was a very well-written film with sleek production values, a good dose of action, and a lot of soul in the story.

For those who might've been stuck under the proverbial "movie rock" and don't know the basic premise of RoboCop, the story follows Detroit police officer (or detective, in this remake) Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) who is so badly injured in the line of duty, that his body is donated and remade into a prototype police cyborg by the conglomerate company, OmniCorp. In becoming cyberized, the contrasting entities of both man and machine are causing Murphy to question his directives and values as both the person he was and the product he has become. But as with any corporation, there's more to this "product" than meets the eye.

Firstly, I have to say that as much as I liked the original movie growing up, after seeing it again, it shows its age. It's an '80s movie and feels every bit like one, mostly in the dialogue and characterizations, but especially the effects. And I still do like it a lot, but probably not as much. As a whole, I see it as an action movie with subtle hints of moral/ethical quandaries about the treatment of human test subjects and as an allegory to corporate corruption for the sake of profit. I get that. I like it.

I think this movie has had too much negativity for all the wrong reasons, im a massive fan of the original and this new version is just as awesome in my eyes for so many different reasons, the story is stronger this time round with a bit more depth into his human side and its interesting that we are introduced into a more technical future with robots and Ed-209 units already patrolling our countries! the suit is very cool and really works well with the new story, the black version is very military as why they did it but I think they knew that the silver works best by the end as you will see if you have not already watched it, the effects are great, lots of action, there is not any bloody violence but its really not needed in this version, take the violence out of the original does it make it any less an awesome film? NO, there are plenty of cool nods to the original there and even the same theme tune which really puts a smile on your face, the cast was great, Sam Jackson and Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton are all superb, this is good fun sci-fi and it does not taint the original at all you can live with the best of both, its certainly miles better than any sequel or spin off in past years, don't listen to haters go ahead and watch it!!! Role on the new Robocop 2!!!

I did not like the original RoboCop. It was never clear why they were using a human when they errased his humanity. Because of that I avoided this reboot for a long time.

This was a very different movie, and a far better one in my opinion. They make sense of the whole zombie mode of officer Murphy. The movie even touches on free-will for the arm-chair philosophers like me. It's actually very relevant with the whole robocop idea. My 12 year old even appreciated that.

I also hesitated to see a lot of machine-gun fire. There was a lot, but somehow, they put in enough drama, and build up for it not to bother me so much.
