The year is 2028 Detroit, when police officer Alex Murphy is critically injured in an explosion, the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.
I really wanted to like this reboot because I like the original film. They tried to make the story different than the original film but from the start you know what’s going to happen and movie feels weak compared to the original film. One big reason this reboot feels weak is because it has a PG13 rating unlike the original which has a hard R rating.
I did enjoy seeing the Robocop program but it would have been nice to see some failed projects. I also like that in the reboot they made Robocop have more emotions and show that he does have a human side. The first person shots are amazing; the C.G. is really well done although final big battle feels more like a super hero movie.
The cast is made up of talented cast with actors like Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Jackie Earle Haley, Jay Baruchel and the one and only Samuel L Jackson. The problem is that characters are flat and I don’t care about any of them; when they make a joke it’s not funny and lame. I was happy to see when they put Samuel Jackson back on screen as Pat Novak a host of a TV show where Samuel Jackson is the yelling, angry, speech giving s.o.b. we all love.
With run of the mill story, wasting almost all the good talent, the only reason to watch this reboot is for the first person shots and Samuel Jackson. This movie is a waste of time and is a good example of if it’s not broken DON’T FIX IT! Save yourself some time and watch the original. Cheers and remember I watch crappy movies so you don’t have too
