Robocop is a futuristic movie about a police detective who is part human, part robot designed to protect and serve the people of Detroit. I know you can pretty much guess that from the picture above and the title, however, to tell you more would truly give away the entire plot (that you may already know, since this is yet anothe remake).

Rating: 2.5-3/5 stars

I was not overly excited to see this. Mostly because I saw the original and I liked it, and lately, Hollywood hasn't been doing all that great w/ the remixes of the original (for example: Total Recall, Footloose). So yeah, I really wasn't expecting much.

What I liked:

1. Kept the original background music (really was surprised I recognized it, but, that was cool).

2. The special effects and technology upgrades were hot! Definitely MUCH better than the original Robocop.

What I didn't like:

1. Not enough action. Very.slow.moving. Definite disappointment here :-(

So, would I recommend it? If you are really into science and technology, sure (I still think I would only pay for a matinee or the dollar theater; almost forgot about that option). If you're looking for a lot of action, look elsewhere.
