What’s it about?
Set in 2028, a Detroit cop is critically injured but given cybernetic enhancements by a giant corporation looking to proft from an automated police force.
What did we think?
Take away most of the body, heart and soul and you have a cyborg Robocop. Sadly you also have this movie. There’s certainly some refreshing ideas in this updating of a classic 80s flick but they’re punctuated with some poorly thought-out scripting and errors of logic. An amazing cast, good special effects but this remake still somehow falls flat. There’s a recurring Wizard of Oz reference to the Tin Man lacking heart but what the updated Robocop movie actually lacks is a brain.
