plot

In 2028 Detroit, when Alex Murphy - a loving husband, father and good cop - is critically injured in the line of duty, the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.

Verdict

“RoboCop is an earnest remake but it fails to match up to the original film. Though it isn't a groundbreaking reboot, the action is slick and entertaining making this a one-time watch.”

At its heart, director José Padilha’s new film RoboCop, a somber remake of the satirical 1987 film of the same name, is the story of the Frankenstein’s monster that, amidst all its attempts to emulate the Iron Man movies and Nolan’s Batman films alike, engages because of its humanistic approach towards its character. There’s a disturbing scene where Alex Murphy, an ex-cop who has lost most of his organs in a bomb blast and who has now been embedded into a robot – a RoboCop – is allowed to look at himself in the mirror. It makes us feel the inner identity crisis the protagonist feels, and this conceit, albeit clichéd, feels believable and drives the entire film, even the action setpieces, rendering them meaningful. It is a sleekly packaged film, but both its action and its drama lack the visionary edge. But in its current form, it remains an adequately engaging if not memorable movie.
